Vlog #21: Game Time! Check out Super Mario Party with Nintendo

I have many memories growing up with playing Nintendo video games with my little brother and cousins. Now, I'm able to experience Nintendo in a whole new way with my own two boys.

The popular Mario Party series of games comes to the Nintendo Switch for the first time with the release of Super Mario Party.

We had so much fun playing the new Super Mario Party with our Nintendo Switch.

Check out the vlog for the fun!

The newest in the long-running Mario Party series of  80 new minigames, Super Mario Party features the fan favorite “board game mode” which goes back to 4-player basics, with players taking turns and racing across the board in search of Stars. The original board game style has also been kicked up a notch with deeper strategic elements like character specific Dice Blocks to add another layer of fun.

PROS and CONS from my sister-in-law:
-Family oriented kids obstacle course.  Parents could do the full course with the kids, that includes getting wet and muddy! Or you can run/walk around obstacles and stay clean. 
-Options for challenges for both younger and older kids
- Staggered start times. We did the afternoon wave, so it was hot by the time we run.  But since we got wet throughout the course, the heat was actually tolerable.  
-We heard about the long lines to do the courses for the morning waves,  but there were no lines or delays for the afternoon wave
-Friendly staff
-Entry cost is a bit steep.  The kids only get a  medal, no t-shirt.
-The kids could run again,  but yo…
