When I bought Nintendo Switch a few months ago, my friends told me that I would buy Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. That was exactly what I did, but none of these games were enough to get me hooked, which is probably the best.
But then came Super Mario Party, which Nintendo released earlier this month for Switch. I grew up games, but somehow I never played Super Mario Party. It seems like I’ve missed my whole life.
Super Mario Party for Nintendo Switch is a fast, pick-up-and-play-type game. You set the difficulty, tell the game how much you want to party (ten, fifteen or twenty laps) and it’s as long as you’re going to party. But be careful to play with your friends or significant others ̵

For those unfamiliar with the Super Mario Party, it’s a digital board game. The name of the game (well not literally) is to collect most of the stars.
To collect these stars, roll one of two dice – A regular one or one that is unique to your character. Some characters have dice that roll up to ten (like Donkey Kong and Bowser), but it also comes with the risk of not moving at all or losing coins, which you need to buy stars.
After each round you play a mini game, where you can earn some more coins. Depending on the game, you need to put your memory, hand-eye coordination or even sense of touch to the job. Fortunately, there is the opportunity to practice before each mini-game.
Throughout the game there are opportunities to steal coins and stars from people. During my last party, Luigi stole a star from Yoshi (played by my girlfriend) and it was not cute. Let’s just say that profanities were proclaimed.
There are over 80 mini games available to play – some of which make great use of Joy Con, the name of the Switch’s removable controllers.
The party mode has four game boards. My favorite board (that is, the board I usually do best is Megafruit Paradise. On the way, maybe through a software update of different kinds, it would be good to have more boards for
Super Mario Party also has a few other modes – River Survival where you control a boat with the Joy-Con paddles, a sound reminder of Dance Dance Revolution and Mini
But in my experience, it’s most fun to play standard party mode. I’ve heard the best way to play the game is with four people, but I’ve only played it with my girlfriend. We’re already both pretty intense so I can only imagine how it would be to play with two other people. Think of this my open invitation to hang me up for a party to start.
