Mario Party 6 is the sixth game in the Mario Party series. It brought several new features, such as the day and night system and the mic minigames. Each stage also has a different way to get a star from another.


[edit] Storyline

Brighton and Twila--the sun and the moon--watch over Mario Party world from the sky and host the best parties. The two celestial party animals have always been good friends. That is, until the day Brighton asked Twila, "Who's more impressive, you or me?" Brighton and Twila argued furiously about who was more popular and impressive. The sky thundered with the fury of their cataclysmic squabble! Mario and his party-hearty friends tried to get them to make up, but nothing they said could settle the spat in the sky. That's when Mario came up with a brilliant plan to harness the power of the Stars to end the feud! They decided to throw a massive Mario Party to collect Stars and fill the great Star Bank! Determined to end Brighton and Twila's feud, they started partying right away. ...But will the power of the Stars be enough to end the furious feud?

[edit] Features

  • First time the Mic can be used and the first Mario Party game to include a Mic and use it in Mini-games and such.
  • New Mini-games, like every Mario Party has
  • New Characters

[edit] Orbs

Well, this time Mario does not have Items--or Capsules, but he does have Orbs! Orbs are very similar to capsules; you can throw certain ones and use them on the Board if you like, or use other ones on yourself! Orbs cost money to buy though unlike Capsules, but you get to pick which one you want.

[edit] Playable Characters

Mario, the all out partier. Mario loves monkeying around with the local monkeys and throwing snowball fights!

Mario's younger brother is also a fan of the winter activities. He'll be speeding down hills with his snowboard!

Peach, the one Mario always has to save. Peach loves to play games with the odd one out!

Yoshi, the friendly dinosaur who is Mario's best pal. He'll get a stamper and stamp everything in sight!

Daisy's a tom boy--but she can be fond of 'girly' things too. She loves to take pictures this time around!

Wario can be fun or evil--or just plain gross! Give him an electric cloud that can hit others with lightening bolts--and you're in trouble!

Wario's brother. Give him a hand mop--and some other cleaning devices and he's unstoppable!

Toad has been a friend to Peach a long time--and Mario, he loves to rocket into the sky with jet packs!

Koopa Kid
Ah yes, Bowser's son. Give him a mechanical ladybug to ride on and he's set for this party!

Boo absolutely loves to scare other people, dinosaurs, or toadstools! Whatever you may be; be prepared to be scared by Boo--and a pink friend or two of his!

Toadette, so another toadstool has joined us this time? Well, she just can't seem to keep her hands on anything! Go get that fallen mail for Shy Guy, Toadette

The three boards in Solo Mode:

Thirsty Gulch

In Mini-Game Mode, up to four players can play all of the Mini-Games you've collected in Party Mode and Solo Mode.

Mini-Game mode features six fun ways to play all the Mini-Games you've collected in Party Mode and Solo Mode. To play Mic Mini-Games you need to go to Mic Mode.

Mini-Game Tour
Hop on board the Mini-Game Tour Bus and play any game you've collected! Press the L and R Buttons to scroll through the types of Mini-Games.

You can choose to play 4-Player, 1-Vs.-3 or 2-Vs.-2 Mini-Games.

Treetop Bingo
In Treetop Bingo, your goal is to win Mini-Games to complete rows of spaces on your Bingo board! Before you play, you'll need to set the number of completed rows to win. After winning a Mini-Game, you can choose a space to uncover, that space is also uncovered on everyone else's Bingo board. Be careful not to accidentally help your rivals win!

Four players pair off and compete in Duel Mini-Games to climb the massive mountain and win the tournament!
