Free-for-All Spaces are spaces appearing in Mario Party 9. When landed upon, a Free-for-All minigame will be initiated. Normally, the Captain who lands on the space is the one who will get to choose what minigame is to be played.
While the Almost There! event is active, the player in last place is the one to pick what minigame is to be played (a tie for last place would cause a player to be picked at random). In a rare sight, if all players are tied, the decision goes back to the Captain.
The first place player will win five Mini Stars, and the other places vary with the number of players.
