GAMES: Ain’t No Party Like a Mario Party

20150501_185738

Recently at The Cave, we’ve been hooked on Mario Party 7.  Mario Party is a long-running series from Nintendo that takes the Mario universe and throws it all onto a board game.  Players move across a game board, earn coins, and collect stars while competing against each other in many different mini-games.  Whoever has the most stars at the end wins, and it’s always a wild ride right down to the last turn.  They say Mario Party ruins friendships, and that’s what makes it so fun.

Mario Party is about crushing your friends’ hopes and dreams through any means necessary.  Not many games at The Cave can get as heated as Mario Party 7 or any other game in the series, and we all become much different people as we go from 1st place to last and back again.  All it takes is a couple stolen stars to bring out the worst in someone.  But overall, first place or last, everyone is most certainly having a great time whenever we’re all sitting on the couch with controllers in our hands.
