Family gaming with Super Mario Party on Nintendo Switch


Since February, our Nintendo Switch has had a lot of playing time. I think it’s best played with family or friends which is why I’m excited we were sent a copy of Super Mario Party on Nintendo Switch. It’s a full 4-player game, so all of the girls can enjoy it, or our family can take turns playing. It’s also fun for just the grown-ups after the kids go to bed.

Launched on on October 5th the party comes to Nintendo Switch in this complete refresh of Super Mario Party complete with the board game mode! Walk the board and choose which Dice Block to roll, and how to win the most Stars in skill-based minigames. The board game will take 4 players about an hour. Even if you don’t have 4 players, you will play the computer…which seems to be really good!

The board game was great for the girls because they could all roll the dice and advance. And when it got time for the minigames, they were able to learn how to perform them and quickly play them. Sometimes B needed help.

The minigames

I personally did much better at the minigame after each set of turns then I did on the board game. I decided I’ll stick to the minigames to show where my skills tend to be best demonstrated. Whether you’re pedaling tricycles, flipping meat, or who knows what else, you’ll use Joy-Con controllers in clever ways across the new minigames. It’s even more fun with 4-players, so it’s a party the whole family can enjoy! Whether you’re flipping meat, matching bananas or who knows what else, you’ll use Joy-Con™ controllers in fun and clever ways across  80 new minigames. It’s even more fun with 4 players, so it’s a party the whole family can enjoy!

Whether you’re flipping meat, matching bananas, riding a tricycle (which is much harder than is seems), having a slap fest for the paparazzi’s attention, or who knows what else, you’ll have a blast! What makes it even more fun is you never know if you are going to be playing alone, with a partner or a team.

Inspiring play away from the game

The tricycles celebrate the most exciting (and silliest!) new minigames in Super Mario Party, Trike Harder. B took to the garage to give her new tricycle we were sent a ride! Turns out she likes to ride the real thing just as much as playing the game. I think it’s a little easier to ride a real tricycle instead of playing the game, but the game is hilarious for all of us to play because you pedal with your hands swirling!

Have you tried out Super Mario Party for Nintendo Switch? We haven’t had a chance to play with a second Switch, but I think that will make it even more fun!

  1. Even tho we love games, as in board games etc, I am so glad none of us is into these kind of games. Nintendo is like an addiction. Aspecially now the kids are all online and not so much playing outside.

    1. I think it’s all about balance and what you do in your home. We only do electronics on the weekends and still they are limited. It’s also a great way to be able to play together when it is raining. You can be into board games and these games and not be addicted to either.
