“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[1] (also known as a Question Mark Space, a Happening Space, a Green Space,[2] or a ? Space[3]) 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. These spaces with the effect can be sometimes positive, and sometimes negative.

In Mario Party 3's Duel Mode, landing on a Happening Space causes a roulette to appear with three random events. In Mario Party 8, the shape of the space differs depending on the board, including the tutorial map. In Mario Party: Island Tour, they appear in Shy Guy's Shuffle City, and trigger an event wheel. In addition, in most games in the series 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 10 the event space is now a exclamation-mark space instead of an question-mark space. Also, it does indicate if it is a positive or negative event by being Blue for positive and Red for negative.
