Play OverviewPlay Overview

Mario Party (2010) is an interactive board game. Players roll a dice to move around a board and then compete in different mini-games to earn the chance to throw again or earn points. You play as Nintendo characters and take on challenges that make use of the specific hardware the game is played on.

Mario Party Superstars is the latest game in the series. It reintroduces the classic mini-games and boards from the previous games. They are each updated with a fresh lick of paint while maintaining the classic combination of board-game progress and miniature multiplayer challenges. Unlike Super Mario Party, that added new mechanics like character-specific blocks, Superstars eschews innovation in favour of simple two-button mini-games, no motion controls, and no character-specific advantages.

The favourite mini-games from the series feature. Bumper Balls, Face Lift, Bowser’s Big Blast and Mushroom Mix-Up return. These, like other examples, keep things simple and approachable so that even those who don't play many games can join in and do well. You can even just opt to play a collection of mini-games in the Mt. Minigames mode.

Whether you get the latest version, or find a second hand copy to run on older hardware, Mario Party is a lot of fun for the family, and a great way to spice up board game style competition. Wii Party (Nintendo Wii) and Wii Party U offer a similar experience with a broader focus on mini-games and different game modes.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 3 for occasional very mild violence in a comical or abstract context. Very mild violence occurs during some minigames in which characters can be hit by obstacles or opponents. The characters are not visibly harmed and simply fly off screen or grunt as stars circle their heads.

A few minigames, and one of the game's boards, features some mildly spooky elements. For example, players may have to use a flashlight to stop a giant ball and chain from coming near them. The overall atmosphere, however, remains light-hearted.
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.

Skill Level

4+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Very young players can pick out some favourite minigames to play. Older players will enjoy competing with the rest of the family.


Mario Party usually costs £6.29 to £49.99.
