Mario Party titles are board games: you jump up, hit the dice and move # spaces collecting coins or candy. Then according your movement a mini-game comes into play. These mini-games have always been a thrill to play with and the information about the latest game will somewhat guarantee that your kids will like the game. Facts and screenshots can be found here.
