Mario Party 10 is a video game developed and published by Nintendo. It combines features from earlier Mario Party games. Minigames will be after every turn and stars will be twenty coins, with some exceptions. Mario Party 10 is the eighth game of the series overall.
Like in every Mario Party game, Mario Party 10 has a ton of new features. Because it is the 10th installment of the Mario Party franchise, Nintendo was well aware that it was time to add in retro minigames and boards to the Mario Party mix. There are 145 retro minigames and 10 retro boards. There are 15 new "nitro" boards to go along with it.
The biggest feature added to Mario Party 10 will be Elimination Mode. It can be a 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27 or 30 turn game. Every 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10 turns, someone will be eliminated. The person eliminated will be in last place for each time and the game ends after the second to last person is eliminated. This will be an option for Party Mode.
Just like in the newer Mario games released by Nintendo, there's an Internet Mode and you can verse players online.
There will be a randomization of spaces each game, so the star location will change and the Donkey Kong Space will change the next time you do the board. Many people complained in the past that the game was getting "repetitive and boring, as there is lack of difference and change".
There's also new ways to play and you can play faster also. You can skip CPU turns to make the game faster. You can also play party mode with just 2 or 3 players too, along with 8 players. Playing with 2 or 3 players will only include 4-Player Minigames (if 2 or 3 players), Duel Minigames (with 2 players), Bowser and Donkey Kong Minigames (if 2 or 3 players) and Battle Minigames (with 2 or 3 players).
Just about everything from Mario Party 9 is removed. There will be minigames after every turn and the minigames won't be as simple. Ztar Stars and regular stars are returning, but you have to buy them and they are in regular bunches, like in Mario Party 1-7.
There won't be "dice blocks" from Mario Party 9 or even "candy" in Mario Party 8 to get, as orbs are returning. Lucky and unlucky spaces will not be returning, either.
Driving in the kart will also be retired too, as Nintendo said "we are trying to forget everything about Mario Party 8 and Mario Party 9 and bringing it back to the originals and the modern-day classics."
Because it is Mario Party 10 and Nintendo made it clear that they want to go back to be classic, Koopa Kid and his space and orb returns, plus story mode boss also returns.
For most boards, stars will go back to it's usual 20 coins and like mentioned above, there won't be any mini stars returning from Mario Party 9.
Orbs from previous Mario Party games will also be returning and those are listed below, after a disastrous two game session of candies and dice blocks. You can buy items in a shop, just like Mario Party 6 and 7 (coins will be easier to get and you can get more items now too!)
Mario Party 10 is a return to the past for the other Mario Parties. The prime of Mario Party (5-7) will have a lot of features returning and 1-4 will have several aspects returning too. However, 8, 9 and DS won't have many things returning. For example, there are boards, hosts and minigames returning, but there are more minigames for Mario Parties 5-7 than the others.
8-Player Minigames and Day and Night, two features from Mario Parties 6 and 7 will be the final two features returning, after a lot of people loving the aspects of the game and requesting to add it back.
You have to buy the Jackpot Shop to make it playable on many boards. The Jackpot Shop returns from Faire Square in Mario Party 6. Players that lined up three coin bags got all the coins that was saved up from players' past payments.
A minor thing that will be returning is allowing to throw an orb ten spaces in front of you. However, a new change that's related to this will be introduced, which is throwing it ten spaces behind you. This was introduced in Mario Party 6 and was gone once Candies replaced Orbs in Mario Party 8.
Finally, the biggest surprise and one of the things many people wanted is returning, Mini-Game Stadium and Mini-Game Coaster. There are also a couple of retro mini-game mode areas returning, but the two Mario Party 1 areas are the biggest thing wanted back.
There will be a total of 12 characters to originally start out with and there will be another 6 unlockable and 6 buyable characters, for a grand total of 24 playable characters.

The player will go on five boards facing the three Koopa Kids. The boards are much smaller boards then in Party Mode. When a player passes/lands on a Koopa Kid, they will duel them; losing costs them 5 coins while winning costs the Koopa Kid 15 coins. When the Koopa Kid passes/lands on the player, they will duel them; losing costs them 5 coins while winning costs the player 10 coins.
There is a VS Space; if there are three Koopa Kids, then this will cause a 1 vs. 3 game. Two will cause a 2 vs. 2 game (with Toad as the player's partner). One causes a duel.
When a player loses all their Coins, they are eliminated from the board. The main objective is to eliminate all three of the Koopa Kid's before they eliminate the player. After all five boards, the player faces Bowser in a Bowser minigame to unlock several boards and characters.
