"Chairman of the Board". This section was devoted to Mario Party 8 which arrives on March 5th. This game introduces the highest player amount ever topping 14! Toad and Birdo are now active characters. Also, 70 new mini-games. NP gives a few of the games called Punch-a-Bunch, Grabbin' Gold, Breakneck Building, Blazing Lassos, and Shake It Up. In addition with new mini-games comes a few new areas. Koopa Tycoon, King Boo's Haunted House as well as some small extras (I won't spoil you!)
