As the sequel to the original, Mario Party 2 for the Nintendo 64 included refined boards, more minigames, and an appreciated smaller luck factor.
Mario Party 2 had the chance to correct its predecessor’s mistakes and shortcomings, and it did! Boards were not infuriating to play, minigames weren’t cheap, and the overall luck factor was dropped a decent amount. Plus, items were introduced, making for a much more strategic and enjoyable board game experience.
