The original board game style has been kicked up a notch with deeper strategic elements, like specific Dice Blocks for each character. The game also introduces all-new ways to play, including Joy-Con controller enabled minigames, and new modes to enjoy with family and friends.

You can also pair up two Nintendo Switch systems and delight in this dynamic play style, such as in the new Toad’s Rec Room mode. With new modes and new minigames coupled with original board game play, the party starts anywhere, anytime, and with all kinds of players.

My kids and I really enjoy this game. Mario is a fan favorite in our house. My oldest loved the minigames and the different modes each ones to offer. My youngest really enjoyed the party system mode. For me this game took me back to certain board games that I used to play as a kid, but now it is in video game form. Sound Stage had all of laughing. We were giggling every time we saw each character cutting a rug.
