Best Mario Party Games


The Top Ten

1 Mario Party 2

This is a good mario party I have it on wii u on virtual console - trains45

Well game is bad to be honest,but this game gives me nostalgia. - OrangeRin

This game did it best in my opinion. It took everything that was fun in original Mario Party, cut the stuff that wasn't, and added in some new treats to make the games even more hilariously fun. I'm not quite sure what it was about this one, but my fondest and funniest Mario Party memories are all from #2.

Hey guys if you love this game and have a brand new wii or wii u, or even an old one at that you should go to nintendo club where you can register your system for coins that you spend on free rewards. One of these prizes is this game for only 150 coins! Which is not that many infact the dsi is still worth 100 coins if you register.

2 Mario Party 7

I played this one before it quite fun - trains45


This game in my opinion is the best overall. The mini games are fantastic and the boards are creative and fun! Also this game brought cool elements like a 8 player mode and Bowser time. Well, I hated Bowser time. The only problem I had with this game was Bowser time because it was just lame and unfair. But anyways, Mario Party 5 was the first Mario party game I ever played. But when I got this game I was really hooked into the series. I also like how every board is completely different from each other. From having you climbing a entire mountain for a star to paying Chomp Chomp's to squish you opponents to steal their stars, it's the best game overall and has a great variety!

The mini-games, the items, even the boards are all ingenious! You've got to watch your step in this one, other wise you could land on someone-else's space that they set using orbs! Not to mention the fact that you can play with 8 people as well, so no one gets left out this way! There's so many paths to choose, items to use plus coins, stars and items to steal! Race to the top in pagoda peak or test your luck in neon heights, every single board has its own special way to play that's sure to keep you on your toes! This is, without a doubt, the best Mario Party game and one that you'll be playing for years to come!

3 Mario Party 6

The day and night cycle adds another layer of greatness to this game - robertoiglesias271

Gamecube is the best

This is one of the best, Almost al of its mini-games are memorable and leave you feeling great after each one. It is the perfect balance of Friend ship destroying and friend ship enhancing. The only problem with this one is reason to replay, after you unlock everything there is no reason to play it again alone unless you really want to play it for fun which it always seems like a good enough reason to me. Very enjoyable to play!

So cool, very beautiful game and also have a new mechanism which swaps day and night.

4 Mario Party 5

The first mario party game I ever played

This needs to be #1 Since the mini-games are fantastic, Like Pushy Penguins for example, There are a ton of characters to pick, The Party Boards are fantactic, Rainbow Dream was pretty good as well Best Mario Party game EVER

I used to beg my dad to let me rent this game. It was very expensive so I used to rent the expensive games all the time. I really enjoyed this one

Its one of the most memorable games in the series it has some flaws but not that you can remember after you just had an amazing time. It has a really good story mode that no other game has even come close to replicating. The minigames were amazing and most of the boards felt perfect. Only improvement would be to expand some of the boards that felt a bit small.

5 Mario Party 3

Me and my roommates will occasionally crack open a case of beers and play Mario Party games... it gets very competitive. MP3 is just by far the best. It has, what I like to call the perfect trifecta of balance. # 1: the luck factor: The sensitivity or lack there of in your old fashioned run of the mill N64 controller adds to chaotic fun of the games. Of course, the dice can always land in or out of your favor, and there are a few mini games, that are based on the results of only lady lucky herself... and of course the dreaded chance time.

# 2: Strategic factor: Even if you're playing a game where you're struggling to win most of the mini games, a few well executed items, or precisely won battle games, or coin steals can help you weasel your way back into contention. It expanded the affects of items set in MP2 by allowing you to carry more than one (i can't remember how many times a plunder chest put a complete stranglehold on the item game in Mario party 2). # 3: Skill ...more

People praise 2, 4 and 6, but leave this game in the dust... Those are still good games, but Mario Party 3 will always be the best!

Mario Party 3 is the best one for me, but that's probably biased by the fact that it's just about the only game I had of the Mario Party series when I was young. I also got 8, but it wasn't quite as enjoyable. I don't know why.

Better than 1 and 2 but still pretty bad - darthvadern

6 Mario Party 8

This the best mario party I playing it right now lol, taking a quick break lol - trains45

I feel like I am the only one who got this game but I do like big top and ballyhoo

I like this one. Should be in second, behind Mario Party 4 - MrSnuffleupagus

This should be number one because the other games are parties but this one is like a festival. - Aaronwahed

7 Mario Party 4

Why is this not #1!? Almost every mini-game is amazing, and DK is actually a playable character. The lottery is one of the best parts of this game, and Dungeon Duos is the best mini-game ever. The items are great, the maps are awesome, and the whole concept is amazing. I love this game and it's one the only Nintendo games I'll still actually play. This game is the reason I love Gamecube. This game is the best Mario Party game by a landslide. - MrSnuffleupagus

It is so cool

Best one it's so low on the list because people are stupid!

Though Mario Party 4 belongs to a more advanced console than the N64, the GameCube, the game still feels like a N64 Mario Party game in every way. Not only that, but the Mini Games were excellent and Donkey Kong was still playable in this game. Mario Party 4 is definitely the go-to game for Mario Party fans.

8 Mario Party DS


My personal favorite! - Jasmine21064

Mario party on a long car drive... Excellent!

Underrated - TristGamer

9 Mario Party 9

Excuse me but why is Mario Party 8 above this?!

This game is a pure masterpiece. The only thing I didn't like about this game was the minigame pit or platter because pit or platter is to hard and boring. BUT OTHER THEN THAT, IT'S A PURE MASTERPIECE. The minigames, mode, unlockables, character, and more were amazing. My favorite was Peak Precision because I'm pretty good at it. I give this game a the highest number ever/10. - MarioMaster101

This one is amazing. Not only the best party, but the best game ever. Their was only 1 part which is the minigame Pit Or Platter but the only reason it is bad is because it is WAY to hard.

Easily the best. What is so horrible about the vehicle you move around in? I thought it was unique. The vehicle made the game less strategic and more a game of chance, like a PARTY game.

10 Mario Party

The people who hate this game just have baby skin because they got hurt by an analog lmao

In this game, playing with friends, you will rage your balls off and you interact with your friends better (although this game might ruin friendships). You're not gonna feel like you're going to win unlike in some of the newer Mario Party games (although you can still win sometimes when you think you don't have a chance and the game just turns around and players can still unexpectedly win) but in the original Mario Party you can almost assume that you're not going to win. With things like Chance Time, Boo, and happening spaces, everyone has a fair shot no matter how many stars and coins everyone has. 9 is the worst console Mario Party game and should not be ahead of this gem. Also, did I mention that this game has the best minigames. Many minigames from this game are better than most other minigames in Mario Party history, in my opinion. This game is legendary compared to the other Mario Party games. What's it doing at number 7? This should definitely be numero uno. It's too good to ...more

This Mario Party, the Original, certainly brings back the most memories, it had the most funnest and memorable mini games, it's the most hilarious, the 1P mode was excellent and chanllenging, and the board maps we're just so fun and big, you had to keep playing it.

I especially enjoyed the concept where you get to buy items from the shop, and collect 100 stars to unlock Bowser's level and then beat his to unlock the final level called, the Superstar.

Mario Party the Original has my vote.

Are you kidding? This is number 6? This game was a ground-breaking party game with some of the most addicting mini games in the entire series. Hands down my number 1.


The Contenders

11 Super Mario Party

This a good mario party I played it a few times - trains45

The only Mario Party, I have played giving it an advantage however a very good game

This game perfectly mixes the old formula with the newer games (allies & Partner Party for example) Best Mario Party in my opinion!

It's good, but definitely my least favourite modern mario party (excluding Top 100 I guess), because it went back to the old formula, which in itself is just kinda proof they are running out of ideas, and I was never a fan of the old formula to begin with and there wasn't much original about this, yes this game is worse than Island Tour and the other modern mario parties (come at me) - darthvadern

12 Mario Party: Island Tour

This good mario party game it quite fun - trains45

This one is the 2nd best after Mario Party 9. - MarioMaster101

No basic boards, no story mode, no sense of accomplishment and WEAK gameplay

No 1vs 3 no 2 vs 2 and no battle games come on

13 Mario Party: Star Rush

Worst 3ds game ever. - myusernameisthis

How did Mario Party Island Tour get over this game! This game is a lot better than Mario Party Island Tour. It has got the most characters, boards, game modes out of all the series. I play this game about every day. They should make this game cost to $50

A masterpiece, I love the uniqueness in this game, however I hated the minigames - darthvadern

Looking good.

14 Mario Party: The Top 100

Excellent 4 player collection of the best minigames great for drinks with friends.

This is the newest Marino party games so far and it isn't actually that bad - Aaronwahed

Please don't waste your money on this game its actually really bad - HunterBoy

Love it already!

15 Mario Party-e

Crap - robertoiglesias271

I HATE THIS - will_smm2

I'll only say one thing: the minigames are stored on cards you need to buy and scan with the GBA

WHAT EVEN IS THIS?!? - HunterBoy

16 Mario Party Advance

I Love this Game But, I Respect Your Opinions. - Rainbowkid38

Crappy game - robertoiglesias271

Best game ever

This game has the least amount of playable characters! This game is also what ruined my belief in the Mario Party series! I'm not buying any other Mario Party Games!

All Gamecube Mario party games are great! You can't let this one let it all down! - marble

17 Mario Party 10

In my opinion, I find this one to be a good game. - robertoiglesias271

It had pink gold peach so it sucks - myusernameisthis

I think this game is fun because you get to play as Bow Wow / Bowser. They're many new things to do in Mario party 10 you even get to play on a game board. Plush I feel bad for Nintendo they worked so hard of thinking of such a great idea can everybody look on the bright side on this game?! But really look ON THE BRIGHT SIDE cause they made it together as a team. And if you buy it no matter what just play it even if you don't like it or HATE it for the love of Mario.

It looks like spike is the new pink gold peach

18 Mario Party 11


Before Super Mario Party was out, all we wanted was a Mario Party 11. WHY DON'T WE HAVE A MARIO PARTY 11 YET? - MarioMaster101

This doesn't even exist. - myusernameisthis

This doesn't exist! Come on!
