How to avoid Bowser’s beam on Space Land
The space station on the Space Land board can be a dangerous place. Players should keep a careful eye on the Bowser Coin Beam. When the counter hits 1, you’ll want to find a route to quickly escape the line of fire. If you get hit by the beam, you’ll lose all your coins!
How to plant Piranha Plants on Peach’s Birthday Cake
On the Peach’s Birthday Cake board, you can decorate the cake with strawberries to earn coins or stars by landing on specific Events Spaces (which are marked with an exclamation point). You can plant a large strawberry for 30 coins or grow a smaller one for 5 coins. The strawberries then grow into Piranha Plants, which gobble up other players’ coins or stars!
How to get King Boo’s help on Horror Land
There are an awful lot of ghosts hanging around on the Horror Land board, where day turns into night and night turns into day.

How to raise tolls on Yoshi’s Tropical Island
The Yoshi’s Tropical Island board is split into two islands, and you’ll need to travel between them to get the Star. The bridges connecting the islands are each guarded by a giant Thwomp. You can raise the Thwomp’s toll by as much as you’d like. But once raised, the toll can’t be lowered—so you may not want to raise it too high!
How to stay on track on Woody Woods
On the Woody Woods board, the direction keeps changing!

If you’re not careful, you might end up traveling along the wrong route.
