Mario Party 10 has three known modes so far:
- Mario Party
- Bowser Party
- amiibo Party
Mario Party mode features the car that was introduced in Mario Party 9 and has players collecting Mini-Stars as they try to reach the end of the board.
Bowser Party mode has players in the car once again, but a fifth character controls Bowser as he chases players across the board. If Bowser catches up and takes out all the hearts of each player, Bowser wins. If the players make it to the end of the board, the players win.
amiibo Party mode is the more traditional Mario Party mode, as it was in the old Mario Party titles, from the first game to the eighth game, which has the classic way of paying 20 coins for one star format, in nine of the character boards.
