Mario Party 9

Everyone's favorite plumber is back for more fun in "Mario Party 9" for Nintendo Wii.

No one throws a party like Mario! In the newest Mario Party sequel ($49.99), the plucky plumber and his pals set out to retrieve Mini Stars that the evil Bowser has stolen from the sky. Like in games past, players compete against each other to collect the most stars. But this time, everyone travels together through the stages in the same car. The driving order is determined at the beginning of each stage with a roll of the Dice Blocks. The player with the highest roll takes the wheel first.

As you move across the board, you’ll have opportunities to land on mini-game spaces. Eighty exciting new mini-games have players making pizzas, riding dolphins through hoops and even bowling with Goombas. Also new for the game: Boss Battles. The battles force players to work together to defeat a common enemy, while still trying to raise their individual scores.

Up to four players can get in on the action at once. Be sure to stay away from the purple Mini Ztars, or you’ll lose some of your Mini Stars. Ready to play? Then let’s get this party started!
