Mario Party Superstars: All Items and What They Do

There's no shortage of items in Mario Party Superstars, and using the right one can help you win the day. Here's a full list of items and effects.

Mario Party Superstars items are, without fail, the key to victory. Whether you’re snagging every Star with a Golden Pipe or just squeezing through a locked door thanks to the Skeleton Key, you’ll need to rely on more than just mad minigame skills to come out on top in each round. You’ll also need plenty of coins. None of Mario Party Superstars’ items come free.

How to Get Items in Mario Party Superstars

The easiest way to get items in Mario Party Superstars is purchasing them from a Toad Shop space on the board, though what items they offer vary. Naturally, the more valuable items cost more coins.

You'll also win some items by landing on special spaces in minigames, including Item Spaces and Lucky Spaces. Lucky Spaces in game modes are a bit less reliable, though, since they feature a roulette system with other, non-item prizes as well — hence the name "lucky spaces."

You can only use one item per turn, so think carefully before deciding what might benefit you the most.
