“Now here's a big mystery! The Green Space! Land on one to unleash a special event!”
—MC Ballyhoo, Mario Party 8
The Event Space (also known as a Happening Space, a Green Space, or a Question Mark Space) is a green space with a question mark on it typically found on the various game boards in the Mario Party series. Ordinarily they activate special board-specific events that can change the outcome of a turn or even a whole game.
In Mario Party 8, the shape of the space differs depending on the board, including the tutorial map. In-game, these spaces were known as Happening Spaces up until Mario Party 6, when their name was changed to Green Spaces. In most games, a Bonus Star is awarded to the player that lands on more of these spaces than any other player at the end of the game.
In Mario Party 3's Duel Mode board, it's also known as the Happening Space, and a roulette starts with three random events.
The Green Space returns in Mario Party 9, renamed the Event Space, but with the same effects. In Mario Party: Island Tour, they appear in Shy Guy's Shuffle City, and trigger an event wheel. The misconceptional blue and red ones are actually Lucky and Unlucky Spaces.
