The Sonic Party series is a virtual board game in which the player may choose from a cast of prominent Sonic characters, some of which have been Sonic, Tails, Amy, Knuckles, Shadow, and many more, created by Hudson Soft, with each game featuring variations on the cast and storyline. The series is intended for four players, but computer controlled players may be selected as well. All of the games share similar gameplay in which the primary objective requires the player to move his or her character across the selected stage to gather a Star. Usually, the player must then pay a fee of twenty coins to the host, a non-playable character. After each player has completed his or her turn, a minigame then begins, in which the player may be awarded coins, based on their performance.
At the end of the game, Stars and Bonus Stars will be tallied. The person with the most stars at the end of the game becomes the winner, or in this case, the Superstar. If Stars are tied between players, other statistics will be applied. These include the amount of coins collected, mini-game victories, and so on.
The Sonic Party series amasses eleven games, across the Nintendo 64, Nintendo GameCube, and Wii consoles, as well as the Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS. The series even sports a card game that works with the e-Reader peripheral. The cast of characters, character cameos, and minigames, are numerous. Thus far, the series has been very commercially successful, and looks to continue its success.
