When a player lands on this space, Goomba comes by, gets a certain amount of coins from each player (it chooses the amount randomly in this game and then chooses by roulette in the rest of the series) and a Battle minigame begins. Players attempt to battle each other to get the jackpot that the Goomba took.
If the total jackpot is not a multiple of 10, all coins but one will be distributed in this manner, and the remaining coin goes to a random player. In Mario Party 4, Goomba becomes the host of his own board, and its role as Battle minigame host is filled by Bob-omb.
A Battle minigame will not take place if a player lands on this space and there are less than 20 coins in play total. Also, if all players lose the Battle Minigame, the coins are refunded to their original owners.
In Mario Party 5, Mario Party 7, Mario Party 8 and Mario Party DS, Battle Spaces are dropped from gameplay. In these games, Battle minigames periodically appear in lieu of the usual end-of-turn minigame, although it happens entirely by chance.
In Mario Party 6, these spaces are changed entirely, having a violet B on them (a lightning bolt in the PAL version), and are only found in Solo Mode. Landing on one of these makes the player play a Battle minigame against the Koopa Kids.
Battle Spaces return in Mario Party 9. Hammer Bro and Fire Bro now co-host the Battle minigames, and one will appear whenever a Battle Space is landed on, with Hammer Bro appearing more frequently. Fire Bro's Mini Star distribution works the same way in Mario Party. Whereas, the loser(s) must give the winner(s) coins after playing a specific minigame. Hammer Bro will take three Mini Stars from each player before starting the minigame, while Fire Bro will instead take a total of ten from whoever places last, and split them between the winners. Either Bro will provide extra Mini Stars if at least one player does not have enough Mini Stars, even if players have no Mini Stars at all. The captain will then pick the game that gets played, unless the group has already passed Toad, in which case the player in last gets to pick. If everybody ends up in first place or last place, the Fire Bro will not give or take any Mini Stars away from any players. If only two players are present, however, then there won't be any Battle Spaces on the board. The twenty-one battle minigames now include Goomba Village, Skipping Class, Card Smarts, Launch Break, Thwomper Room, Ring Leader, Goomba Bowling, Bomb Barge, Speeding Bullets, Player Conveyor, Flinger Painting, Tuber Tug, Mecha Choice, Skyjinks, Pizza Me, Mario, 10 to Win, Magma Mayhem, Logger Heads, Pinball Fall, Peak Precision and Don't Look.
