When you get a Twice Candy or a Thrice Candy, try to
get all of the dice blocks the same number. You will get a nice
coin bonus as a reward.
Easy Dart Shooting
Just as the target you are aiming for gets to about
the 9 o'clock position, or slightly after, throw the dart. If
timed perfectly, you will hit what you are aiming for.
Easy Ping Pong
Serve the ball, then hit it at the latest possible moment. If done correctly, this will result in an ace.
When you select "Battle Royale" in the Party Tent, the number of Carnival Cards that you receive at the end of the game is two times the number of turns you played. For example, 10 turns results in 20 Carnival Cards, 20 turns results in 40 Carnival Cards, 30 turns results in 60 Carnival Cards, and so on.
When using a Slowgo Candy it is best to be used by a music square, question mark, or DK block. Flick the remote number before desired for better results. Question mark blocks are not all good; choose wisely.
Control introduction screen
Select Mario and he will do various things, ranging
from falling down to jumping in the air.
After turning on the game, at the title screen Mario will be standing in the middle of the screen. Move the pointer over his ear, then press A. Mario will jump, laugh, run, run crying, or fall.
