2013 Holiday Video Game Guide

Mario Party Island Tour

Game tested on Nintendo 2DS; also available for 3DS (Rated E)

December 06, 2013


Join Mario and his friends on a party that features 80 mini games and seven game boards that are similar to actual board games where players roll the dice and wait their turn. In the Perilous Palace, players must avoid obstacles like lava in Bowser Zone. Banzai Bill’s Mad Mountain Board is almost like a regular race, but Banzai Bill occasionally knocks players off of the path. If you aren’t a fan of the game boards, try your hand at one of the 80 mini games.

What will kids like about this game?

You can play with up to four of their friends. Plus, you can gather Mario Party Points for bubbles to purchase collectables and try to finish the entire collection!

What tips would you give other players?

In the mini games, don’t just sit out while you wait for your turn. Try your hardest to gain “Bonus Dice Blocks” that can help you zip along the game boards.
