Toy Dream
  • The bottom Happening Space is the most consistent way to reach the top platform. If you’re trying to reach it but going to land on the cubes, might as well take the hit for the happening star!  ~ Spongyoshi
Rainbow Dream
  • The top and bottom islands have two star spawns each, while the left and right islands only have 1 star spawn each. Therefore the best island to loop around is the top island since it has two star spawns and a capsule machine.  ~ P-Merks
Pirate Dream
Undersea Dream
  • If you cross the bridge going to the right section of the board and the star isn’t on that side yet, you should always prioritize taking the path up towards the whale since this will put you on path to two potential star spawns, a capsule machine, and a happening space that could take you directly to the star.  ~ P-Merks
Future Dream
Sweet Dream
Bowser Nightmare
  • Here’s a simple visualization of Bowser’s walks. The purple path is the path he takes when landing on the left Happening Space while the red path is the path he takes when landing on the right happening space.  ~ Spongyoshi
