Welcome to Mario Party 4! I'm going to give you some best things on the board maps and tips on the minigames. Story Mode Settings First of All, you must select a character between Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Yoshi, Wario, Donkey Kong(DK), or Waluigi. Next, select a difficulty level between easy, normal, or hard. There could be a super hard if you beat all three difficulties, but I'm not sure. Finally, choose between All or Easy minigames(don't worry about custom). The Flow This is how Story Mode goes: Choose a board between: Goomba's Greedy Gala Difficulty:** Shy Guy's Jungle Jam Difficulty:* Toad's Midway Madness Difficulty:* Boo's Haunted Bash Difficulty:** Koopa's Seaside Soiree Difficulty:** You'll play the board with 3 random opponents for 15 turns with No handicap and Bonuses On. If you win, you challenge the guide character in a boss minigame. If you win, then you get a birthday present from them. Board Map Guides: Goomba's Greedy Gala:This is tough, mainly because half of the time you must rely on luck at a huge roulette wheel. Here are your chances of which direction you go: Upper Left:18.75%(3 out of 16) Upper Right:18.75%(3 out of 16) Downward Left:18.75%(3 out of 16) Downward Right:18.75%(3 out of 16) Getting 20 coins and going your own way:25%(4 out of 16) If you reach a Dice spot, you must roll a higher number that Goomba to get 10 coins or go back to start. If you land on a Happening Space on top of a board, use the control stick to steer to grab coins as you slide. Boss:Goomba-Goomba's Chip Flip This minigame is based on luck- hit A twice on a chip to recieve 20, 10, 5, 3, or lose 5 or 10 points. The first to get 50 points wins. Shy Guy's Jungle Jam:Shy Guy isn't as brave to go on a real adventure, so he built this. Like his name, he's nervous. This isn't very easy. though. Two Shy Guy Wells each border 3 happening spaces. Land on one of them, and you must cast a sad or fun wish to the well. it could be happy or so upset that he'll flood the bridges. There's no telling what's what! There's a vulture near the Item shop at the beginning of playing this board. Ask him for a ride for coins to grab. Use the control stick to lean left or right. For more info, head to nintendopower.com, then click on Vol. 162 in Archived Editions for "Vulture Ride." A shy guy wants 15 coins for a raft ride! Boss:Shy Guy-Archaeologess Match Five spinning shapes will be making you dizzy (or not). Go up to one and hit A if you think it doesn't look like the others. If you guess right, it will go to the Shy Guy painting and you'll gain a point. If not, you'll be squished. First to reach 3 points wins. Tip: Look at each shape carefully and quickly. I'll need to stop soon, but let's go see some of the minigames. 4 player minigames: Avalauche!-Use the control stick to move up or down and keep on hitting the A button to ski down the mountain. Tips: Remain at the top of the path at all times. Hit all the ramps. Don't hit the rocks. Bom-omb Breakers:Break blocks by matching 3 of the same shapes. First to 100 points wins.Use the control stick to move the blocks and the A button to flip. Tips: I have no stradegy for this one. Booksquirm:Use the control stick to find lighted areas of the falling pages to stay safe. Domination:Keep hitting A to get as many Whomps as you can for 10 seconds. In the next guide, I'll go over Toad's and Boo's board, along with the other 4 player minigames and Battle minigames.
