Super Mario Party 10 is the tenth game in the main Mario Party series. It has 50 playable characters, and 10 different boards. It is for the Wii U and 3DS.
Gameplay is like most Mario Party games. There are four different modes: Free-For-All (everyone against each other), Tag-Team (two vs. two), Duel (one on one), and Carpool (like in MP9). You can use all three of these modes in Party Mode and Story Mode. Other than that, it's effectively the same. There are Mini-Stars and Mini-Ztars in this game too, and you collect them in threes. If you get 30 Mini-Stars, you get a normal Star. Once you have a normal Star, you can't collect any more Mini-Stars. You can only fight the boss if you have a normal Star. Mini-Ztars work like they do in MP9. You have to spend 3 Coins to get 3 Mini-Stars.
Party Mode is the classic mode from every Mario Party game. In this game, it is hosted by Mallow. You can play on any board (except the Bowser Board, which you have to unlock before you can) in this mode.
Minigame Mode is another classic mode from the series. In this game, it is hosted by Mallow. You can play any minigame you've played before in this mode. Also, there is a minigame shop, where you can buy retro minigames.
Story Mode is yet another classic mode. In this game, it is hosted by both of the hosts, who alternate boards- Geno first, followed by Mallow. See below to read the story.
Super Duel Mode
Super Duel Mode is a mode introduced in Mario Party 5. In this game, it is hosted by Geno. The gameplay is the same. See below to view all of the vehicle parts.
Extra Mode is a mode also introduced in Mario Party 5. In this game, it is hosted by Geno. The gameplay is the same as in Mario Party 5.
Shop Mode is a mode introduced in Mario Party 6. In this game, it is hosted by Paratroopa, Paragoomba, Lakitu, and Wiggler, who each run their own shop. At Paratroopa's place, you can buy the characters. At Paragoomba's place, you can buy retro minigames. At Lakitu's place, you can buy new vehicles for Carpool Mode. At Wiggler's place, you can buy extra things like voices or "Extra Hard" mode.
This story is used in Story Mode.
Every year, at the start of the year, the Star Festival takes place. At the Star Festival, all of the Mini-Stars form together into real Stars, which, with the help of Geno and Mallow, award the 10 Star Stamps to the ten Mushroomers who deserve them most. This year, Bowser really hopes to get his hand on one of the Star Stamps.
It's time for the festivities to begin! Everyone gathers to Peach's Castle's roof, with Bowser and his children watching from overhead. As each of the 10 Star Stamps are awarded, Bowser becomes angrier and angrier- none of them were sent to him! In a fit of rage, he uses his super-vaccuum to suck them all away! Mario and his friends chase after him.
While flying over the kingdom, Bowser is so busy laughing evilly that he drops all of the Stamps! They fly through the kingdom, landing in ten different realms. Bowser quickly sends his ten children to get them back before Mario and his friends do. Mario and his friends split up- that way, they can all get it first!
Before a major fight begins, Geno and Mallow decide to make it fair and square- whoever can get the Stars back can also have a chance to defeat the boss and get the Star Stamp. Everyone agrees, and the game starts.
The gameplay is very similar to Party Mode, but you progress through the ten different boards. Everytime you beat a board, you get the ability to buy the Koopaling of that board. There are four different versions: duel, tag-team, free-for-all, and carpool. In duel, you can only play one player, and your only opponent is the Koopaling. In tag-team, you can have one other person play with you, but you have two opponents instead of just one. In free-for-all, it's back to only one player, but you now have three opponents. In carpool, you can have up to three more people playing with you, but you have FOUR opponents. Unlike in normal carpool, where there is only one car, there are two cars- one has all the heroes, the other has all the villains.
