DK’s Treetop Temple
  • The barrel cannon will either send you to the top left or top right of the board. Important to remember if the Star is around that area.  ~ Spongyoshi
Goomba’s Booty Boardwalk
  • The first and third dolphin offer you to move across 20 spaces while the second dolphin offers you to move across 30 spaces. Depending on your balance, you might want to only pay for the second one (although it’s usually a little pricier) but remember you can chain the first and third dolphin together for an added total of 40 spaces!  ~ Spongyoshi
  • The dolphin fee is depending of your current rank. First place pays 20, Second place pays 15, Third place pays 10 and last place pays 5.  ~ Spongyoshi
King Boo’s Haunted Hideaway
  • There are always three sanctums on the board, but only one of them contains King Boo and your ticket to the star, the other two are pitfalls that send you back to start.  ~ Gianluca_S
  • The higher difficulty you put an AI on, the higher their odds are of picking the correct path to the star. Follow them if you’re not sure where to go!  ~ HWD
Shy Guy’s Perplex Express
  • While you are playing, take note of the locations of Bandit or Mowz in the cabins so you know how to answer when questioned by Security Shy Guy.  ~ RubenGYY
  • Slowgo Candy is your friend here. If you pick one up or buy one at the candy store you’ll be able to easily get the Lucky Space to Payday Waystation and grab a free star.  ~ JoshyBoy2405
Koopa’s Tycoon Town
  • If you put 100 coins into a hotel it becomes locked out to other players. There’s a chance for others to access it again if someone lands on the happening space that summons Bandit who will steal coins from a random hotel.  ~ Lucas Omega
Bowser’s Warped Orbit
