The 1-Star Hex is a type of Hex in Mario Party DS. The player possessing it can choose to place it on any Blue Space or Red Space within five spaces from their current location. When a player lands on it, a star is distributed and the hex is destroyed. If opponents land on it, the sides of the hex will fold together on them, and a star will be taken from them and given to the player who placed it. If there are no stars to be taken, the hex will not have any special effect and will just be destroyed. If the player/team who threw it lands on it, he or she will receive five coins. This hex can be received in the Hex Area or by stealing it with a Snag Bag.
