So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Mario Party DS sticks far closer to the tried-and-true format of the console games, unlike its GBA predecessor, which is to collect stars in order to obtain Superstar status and play against a boss. There are 5 playable maps and 72 minigames. This is also the last Mario Party game to be developed by Hudson Soft.

Hmmm...
To do:
Screenshots of sub-menus, regional differences and more details.

Debug Menu

Hmmm...

Test the MultiBoot.

There is a hidden menu entry in the main menu that goes to a debug menu. The debug menu is displayed on the Touch Screen. Use the Action Replay code for your region to access it.:

In the main menu, press Select. "Touch the screen to begin!" will appear, then press A.

Entry Function
START Restarts the game.
MultiBoot Parent Sends the multiplayer game to clients using DS Download Play and/or the MultiBoot Client entry. It works and the player that used this will have "WID:0" in the lower right corner of the bottom screen after succefully connecting with other clients and sends you to debug menu again, and all minigames behave like multiplayer properly. (DS Download Play capabilites not tested)
MultiBoot Client Searches for parents. This presence of this option is odd because the multiplayer game can only be accessed through DS Download Play.
Board Entrance Goes to the Party Mode menu.
Extra Draw & Catch Starts a game of Pen Pals, also known as Draw and Catch. The first AND second player are controlled simultaneously.
Extra Color Territory Starts a game of Desert Duel, also known as Color Territory. Again, both the first and second player are controlled simultaneously.
Minigame Begins a desired minigame. Selecting an entry filled with ---- will crash the game.
Viewer Crashes the game.
Attakeda Crashes the game.
Hakamada Crashes the game.
Hnishi Begins a party on the desired map. There's an option called Boardmap Debug, probably for a debug map, but there isn't any reference to it in the filesystem, so it crashes. Also, the Tutorial entry displays the tutorial instructions, but can't be played.
Miyawaki Crashes the game.
Takasima Crashes the game.
GUI Menu Crashes the game.
Message Crashes the game.

Hidden Objects

Music Box Speaker

♪♪♪

The music box from "Call of the Goomba" has a speaker that can't be seen during the minigame.

Regional Differences

Due to South Korea banning gambling and its elements in games, there are a number of changes made to this game.

  • Bowser's Pinball Machine's three-slot jackpot game has been simplified into a game where the player has to hit the UFO when it lands on the center (and if it gets hit faster, the player get more coins). The coin roulette game also has been changed into a Whack-a-Mole game where hitting Bowser or Bowser Jr. gains coins, and hitting Bob-Omb decreases the amount.[1][2]
  • Shuffleboard Showdown and Chips and Dips were removed.
  1. Turn 1, 2:05
  2. Turn 9, 1:48
