Use the following technique to accumulate Stars and open mini-games easily: Select "Start a game in Party-mode". Select your playing area, keeping in mind that some have items that will decrease/steal stars. For example "Towering Treetop" works just fine, whereas "Castaway Bay" tends to yield fewer due to Bowser taking them. It is recommended that you "Play a 50 turn game" in which "Bonus Stars will be handed out at the end of the game". This will minimize the number of times you will need to repeat the process to obtain the most Stars. Handicap each player to start with nine Stars. Once again, this is not required, but will further minimize the number of times this procedure needs to be repeated. Once the game starts, immediately press Start to pause game play, and configure it for all CPU-controlled players (usually also set for the hardest IQ, so they actually move during mini-games (as opposed to remaining motionless without accumulating stars/coins/bananas, etc.; as they may if set for "weak/normal". The following settings are suggested (but not required) to expedite the process, as well as open mini-games:
- Mini-game instructions are set to Skip instructions.
- CPU Mini-game setting is set to Skip CPU Duel mini-games.
- Playable mini-games are set to All Games*.
- Rumble Feature is turned off. (optional)
- Message speed is set to fast.
- The Mic is turned off.
- CPU Mini-game setting is set to Skip CPU Duel mini-games.
The game will now play with all-CPU players, accumulating Stars and opening mini-games without your interaction. Return in a few hours when the game is finished. Repeat this as necessary to obtain Stars and purchase items in the Star Bank. Note: "Faire Square" seems to provide the most opportunities to obtain Stars, due to that gambling options available. Also, the CPU players have a very-high percentage of wins on the gambling games with "Brutal Difficulty" IQ setting. That said, "Brutal Difficulty" should be purchased as soon as it can be, and used instead of "Hard" for the CPU IQ. This will build Stars even faster, especially on "Faire Square".
Additionally, in story mode, play the Snowflake Lake (snowy) level. Each time you finish, you will get 20 Stars in the Star Bank. If you put the bonus on, it will be 23 Stars in the Star Bank. Note: This can work when you put on any amount of turns from 10 to 50. You will even get the Stars even if you do not finish first.
In certain mini-games that requires reflexes (for example, Sunday Driver, Insectiride, etc.), pause the game when it shows the button to press. Note the button, then press it as soon the game is resumed. This is useful for making records on Sunday Drivers. Additionally, when playing in solo mode you will most likely get a Sluggish Shroom, which makes the dice block roll slower. When you get to the last six spaces, use it and hit the block one number lower than the desired number. You should land on the rare mini-game space.
