Level-Headed: Waluigi's Island


3. The Insane Asylum: Ah, my favorite part of the level, and, if used correctly, the perfect way to win the game and lose all your friends in the process. This island, in the upper-left-hand corner of the board, is accessible from one of 2 hard-to-lower bridges on 2 different islands. But, once youíre on it, prepare for some fun. Every space on the island (save for 2 Shop spaces) is the exact same space, but changes each level. So, one level, every space can give you 3 coins, or become one of those ? spaces, or, if youíre lucky, initiate a Chance Time. Chance Time takes you and puts you in a room with 3 slot machines, 2 with a characterís face, and 1 with a coin or star value, and an arrow. The goal is to steal as much stuff as possible from your opponents, completely ruining any chance of winning. For instance, if you hit the first block, placing your characterís face on it, then hit the 3rd block with the lead-star-carrierís face, then hit the middle block to say ďtakes all stars from,Ē you have just fucked over your opponent. Of course, this can work against you, since each time you hit a slot, the other 2 speed up, until the last one is almost impossible to judge. So, with that in mind, one of my favorite things to do was make my way to the island early on, then stay there the entire game, landing on randomized spaces, and getting at least 4 Chance Times to take everything possible away from my opponents.

Along with those islands, the top of the board housed the Boo space, a valuable space in the game. Landing on it allowed you to pay Boo to steal coins or stars from an opponent, depending on how many coins you gave him. While all boards had this space, Waluigiís Islandís space was a hassle to get to. Before you got to it, there was a forked path. After choosing a path, you either went forward, or fell down a hole all the way to the start of the level. The order was randomized every time you took the paths, so, it was pretty much a coin flip as to whether you could reach Boo or not.

Hands down, this is my favorite board in any Mario Party game. Everyone had the chance to steal all kinds of coins and items from everyone. Most of the board was randomized, sometimes leading to total chaos. And, if that wasnít enough, the most valuable space on the board was near-impossible to reach. Have fun playing this board with friends, but donít be upset if you donít have said friends the next day.

My name is Pendelton (well, not really, but it sounds cool).
At one point in my life I spent a hell of a lot of time here. I came back for no real reason. Let's see if I can entertain like I used to.
