Backtrack

Backtrack is an unlockable Duel Board in Mario Party 3. The gimmick here is the Reverse Spaces. Landing on one causes the player to go in the opposite direction, and changes the positions of their partners. This provides easy access to the opponents and the start spaces, or just the opposite. This board is in the shape of a star.

In Story Mode, the player has to duel Princess Daisy on this board for the Beauty Star Stamp. Succeeding allows players to play Backtrack in Party Mode. It also features a special piece of music unique to fighting Princess Daisy.

The change of direction was adapted to Bowser's Warped Orbit in Mario Party 8.
