'Super Mario Party:' How to Unlock Boards, Gems and More

Super Mario Party is available now on Nintendo Switch, bringing the competitive party game to the next generation.

However, not everything is unlocked when you first start the game. While there are a handful of characters that need to be unlocked that's not the only thing Super Mario Party players have to find.

There is a new board to unlock in Super Mario Party , Gems that are involved in the game's story as well as Game Modes.

Here's how to unlock boards and gems in Super Mario Party .


Super Mario Party starts with three boards, but a fourth called Kamek's Tantalizing Tower can be unlocked. It's rather simple, really, so if you are looking for a new board to play on here's how to do it.

  • Complete all three boards in the standard Mario Party mode


The opening scenes of Super Mario Party will ask the player to unlock five Gems. Do so, and a final cutscene will be available to you. Some of the Gems are easy to unlock while others may take some time and effort.

Here's how to unlock all five Gems in Super Mario Party :

  • Gem of Tenacity - Play all four boards in the standard Mario Party mode.
  • Gem of Spirit - Complete the Sound Stage mode in Hard difficulty.
  • Gem of Courage - Play through every route in River Survival (this also unlocks Donkey Kong).
  • Gem of Passion - Complete every world in Challenge Road.
  • Gem of Love - Play all four boards in the Partner Party mode.


Like the Gems, some Game Modes are easily unlocked so you'll probably find some during casual play of Super Mario Party. However, some requirements are a bit trickier, so here's how to unlock the various modes.

  • Toad's Rec Room - Complete a single match of Mario Party.
  • Challenge Road - Unlock all 80 minigames by playing through each of the four main modes (Mario Party, Partner Party, River Survival and Sound Stage).
  • Party Points (Menu) - After you play a match of any mode, talk with the main Toad who will unlock the Party Points option. This where you can spend points on unlockables.
  • Sticker Room - After unlocking the Party Points option, go to the red warp pipe in Party Plaza to have Kamek unblock and give you access to the Sticker Room.
