Chilly Waters
  • You can miss the Action Time on purpose to move to the spaces marked in pink depending to where the snowball is rolling.  ~ Spongyoshi
Deep Bloober Sea
  • The anchor fish at the top left corner of the board is not the end of the world. There’s a chance it’ll try to send you to the right, sending you just before Boo. If this happens, let it suck you in. Return to the fish and you might be able to repeat this process again. ~ SpiderStaryu
  • Take note of whether or not the torpedo was fired yet by Sushi on the current set of available buttons. If none was fired and only one button is left, pick the path opposite to the one you desire since you’re guaranteed to be redirected to the other path.  ~ Spongyoshi
Spiny Desert
  • There are two possible ways to identify the correct star. 1) If you use a Magic Lamp it will always bring you to the real star. 2) If the star positions are getting revealed for the 8th (16th, 24th, …) time, the real star is always on a position where no real star was in the last 7 reveals, so keep the last reveals in mind.  ~ CedrikPle
  • Hitting a cacti in the Action Time will launch you to their corresponding spot marked by a sign (far left for female cacti, far right for male cacti).  ~ Spongyoshi
  • If you roll a 7 or 8, buy a 10 coins item from the shop, then go up. You’ll land on a Bowser Space and get a generous refund from him.  ~ Spongyoshi
Woody Woods
  • This is the easiest board to boo-reverse as there’s a shop right after boo although you’d need some luck too. Either get a reverse in the shop or have one beforehand and if you need another roll, you could get another reverse mushroom from the shop while reversing unto it!  ~ Spongyoshi
Creepy Cavern
Waluigi’s Island
