Boards

Nitro Boards

All the original boards made in Mario Party Superstar.

Board Description Boss
Mushroom Plains The first and the most basic board in the game, with no gimmicks. It takes place in a plain in the Mushroom Kingdom, with hills and oceans surrounding it. The goal of this board is to advance through the board and get to the Star Space. On the Star Space, the player can pay 20 coins for a star. After that, the star moves into a different spot in the board. After 10 turns passed, the player with the most stars is the winner. GOOMBOSS.png
Goomboss
Mario Circuit The second board in the game. It takes place in Mario Circuit near Peach's Castle. The goal of this board is also to collect the most stars, but there are some special rules. A Star Space located somewhere in the board won't change its position, no matter what. Players can still pay 20 coins for a star. Now the player's another goal is to finish 3 laps on the board using the least time. 1st place on the 3-lap goal will be rewarded 3 stars, 2nd place will get 2 stars, 3rd place will get 1 star, while last place won't receive anything. Once all players finish 3 laps, the game will end, and the player with the most stars is the winner. If at least 1 player can't finish 3 laps in 25 rounds, the 3-lap goal star rewards will be decided by the number of spaces remaining until finishing 3 laps. If the remaining players are on the same space, then a minigame will be played and see who's the winner. PeteySSBI.png
Petey Piranha
Snow Panic The third board in the game. It takes place in a snowy mountain during a blizzard. It is very snowy, and you can only look 2 spaces around you in all directions, so it could be really hard know if you are about to land on a Bowser Space. The map only shows up to 2 spaces around, like what you can see. If you scroll the map, you can't see anything outside your visible area. The goal of the board is to reach the penguin and he will give you a star for free, because he is lost and you found him. After that, the penguin gets away and moves to a different location on the board. After 20 rounds, the player with the most stars is the winner. Mr. Blizzard.png
Mr. Blizzard
Mushroom City The fourth board in the game. The goal of this board is very similar to Windmillville from Mario Party 7 and Koopa's Tycoon Town from Mario Party 8. Players need to invest the Mushroom Huts in the board using their coins. If more coins are invested, then the Mushroom Hut will level up. (Max. Level is 5) After 20 rounds, the player with the most stars is the winner. King Bob-Omb.png
King Bob-omb
Blooper Bay The fifth board in the game. It takes place in a bay filled with Bloopers swimming. There is a dolphin at the end of the board. The dolphin will give the player a Star for 10 coins, and the dolphin will offer the player to go back to the start of the board riding on the dolphin's back for 5 coins. If the player refuses to go back, then the player will stay at the end of the board until they accept the offer. There is also an island where players can access by landing on the lucky space and a dolphin will offer you to ride to the island. On the island, there are some blue spaces, a DK space, and a Star Space. After the player has gotten the star, a dolphin will offer you to ride back to the lucky space. After 30 rounds, the player with the most stars is the winner. Sometimes, during minigames, the screen will b blooped by a Blooper. This happens when a player has landed on a Blooper Space. Gooper blooper.png
Gooper Blooper
King Boo's Spooky Castle The sixth board in the game. It takes place in a big, spooky castle during nighttime. The goal of this board is to get the most stars as possible while avoiding getting Ztars. There are 5 dead ends in the board. Each of them either leads you to a Star, or very unluckily, a Ztar. Every time a Star is collected, a Ztar will replace the spot. When a player gets a Ztar, a Star will replace its spot. However, you can't know which dead end is a Star or a Ztar. You can only know when you reach the Star or Ztar space. After 20 rounds, the player with the most stars is the winner. King Boo.png
King Boo
Volcanic Ruins The seventh board in the game. The goal of this board is to win special minigames and get stars. A Toad will stand somewhere in the board, and will offer the player a Star the player pays 20 coins to the Toad. A Ztar space also locates somewhere in the board, and will make the player lose a Star when they pass it. After somewhen gets affected by the Ztar Space, the Ztar Space will go to another spot in the board. There is also a really dangerous Unlucky Space somewhere inside the volcano, and that space will make the volcano explode, making all the players lose half of their stars and coins. After 30 rounds, the player with the most stars is the winner. Chain chomp.jpg
Chain Chomp
Bowser's Futuristic Castle The eighth and the final board in Story Mode. The goal of this board is to avoid being attacked by Bowser's attacking machines and try to save the trapped Toads. All the Toads are captured in the 9 cages, one in each cage. Then the player needs to find specific keys scattered around the castle that can unlock specific cages. When a Toad is freed, the Toad will give the player a star for thanks. There are a lot of Bowser Spaces and Unlucky Spaces on the board, each will have a different event, but all are bad events. After all Toads are freed, the game will end, and the player with the most stars will face against Bowser. Once Bowser is defeated, then Story Mode will end with a whole bunch of credits that cannot be skipped. Bowser.PNG
Bowser
Sweet Land The ninth board in the game, and the first board not to appear in Story Mode. It takes place on top of some donuts. Players will need to travel around the donuts and get the star in the hole of one of the six donuts. Players can travel through the donuts by paying 5 coins, then a Rainbow Bridge will form and will disappear since the payed player passes the Rainbow Bridge. After 35 rounds, the player with the most stars is the winner. None
Cloudtop City The tenth board in the game, and so far the final nitro boarding unlockable board in Mario Party Superstar. Players start at different places on the board, and unlike the other boards, all the players start on the same spot. There is a Star Redeem Shop, and it will cost 10 coins at there for a star on the first time. Every time a player redeems a star, the price will increase 10 coins every time, until the price is 50 coins. If someone redeems a 50-coin star, then the counter will be set back to 10 coins for a star. Once 50 turns passed, then the game will end. It can be unlocked at Toadsworth's Market for 5000 coins.
