This is for people who lust after 10 Megabit connections and can afford one or more consoles.

Super Mario Party- Go now or hold it until I get a better conection?

I've had some history with Mario PArty. But before playing any of the Mario Partys, I played Sonic Shuffle. That had an interesting mechanic of a deck of cards split up, and you can either pick a card you know, or you can take your chances by picking a card you don't know. I liked that aspect of the game. When I played Mario Party 5, the die was kind of random, and the boad had little strategy. I also got 4 and 6 for Game Cube, and 2 on the Wii U virtual Console, but up until this point the best one was Mario Party 8 for the Wii. Even though it had the die mechanic, there was PLENTY more room for strategy. The 2 best boards were the Monopoly-sytyle board where you own hotels, and the other is the Circual board where you steal stars from each other by rammigng them with power ups. 9, which I rented, with its communal moving, I didn't understand the strategy of.

For those ewho don't know, Mario Party games combine the skill of minigames, the strategy of the board, and the luck of the die, in a race to get the most stars, and if tied for stars, coins is the first tiebreaker. So how does Super Mario Party stack up?
Well, the most interesting thing they did with strategy was to give you either a standard die, or a different die with some sort of different number distribution. And each charater has a different special die. Another aspect is you can get allies, who do two things, one is adding a second (or third or more) die to roll, but you get your partner's die in your inventory. You only choose one special die, your partners roll regular dice. I don't know if you can choose how many dice to roll if you have more than one because i never got an ally on game 1.

I felt the fate was always in my hands enough where I can make smart decisions, but enough out of my hands that I was taking calculated chances.

ALso the variety of mini games use eigher a single joycon as a single controler, or as a motion controller. This is kind of weird: I'm surprised there wasn't a dual Joyucon per player mode. So you can play 4 players with both a left and right hand. But they make them one handed. They could have, with 4 L joycons and 4 R Joycons, and the fact tha the game allows a maximum of 4 players.
