The amount of retro boards the Mario Party series has at its disposal is tremendous, and it’s no wonder that the previous five boards we listed as great possibilities for Mario Party 9 retro boards was not enough. To satisfy your needs, here is another batch of boards that would do well as Mario Party 9 boards.
The contrasting themes of night and day of the Mario Party 3 board, Spiny Desert, is what makes it one of the more memorable boards in the series. Having it remade into a Mario Party 9 board would entail the cutoff, or end point, of the board to be made somewhere near the final intersection, right below the Boo spot. The cactus would play a role in one of the captain events on the board, as well as the two quick sand ports. Players would fight a Klepto halfway through the board, and finish it off with a fight with the tornado like enemy, Tweester.
Remove the ending path that connects to the start of the board, and have it turn into the center of the board. The center of the board is where the evil Toady waits. Captain events would replace the roulletes and the memory games from the original Mario Party 6 board. Players should expect to fight off a group Fuzzy enemies somewhere in the middle of the board.
DK’s Stone Statue
Mid-Boss: Dry Bones
Boss: Petey Piranha
Linear boards scream Mario Party 9, and DK’s Stone Statue from Mario Party DS is no exception. The two vines spread the boards would serve as Captain Events. The already placed coffin would make the return of Dry Bones a mid boss. The board ends at the top of the statue, where Petey Piranha waits for duel!
Boss: Angry Sun
Since players will be using the train as their vehicle, every path on this board would now be put on railroad tracks. The Milk Bar run by Hootenanny the Wiggler would involve the Captain Event in some way. Expect to fight off a Pokey mid way through, and final battle with persistent Angry Sun!
Goomba’s Booty Boardwalk
Boss: Captain Goomba
As bland and boring as this Mario Party 8 board was, it is the perfect match for the style of boards in Mario Party 9. Thanks to the new car mode, Captain Events and different Lucky spaces can really spice the board up, something it desperately needs. A fight with Cataquacks on the beach should be expected halfway through the board, and battle with Captain Goomba on his own ship would finish off the game!
