Purpose The first character to land on a Basic Space claims it. Landing on one's own Basic Space yields coins; landing on an opponent's results in paying them coins.
First appearance Mario Party 3 (2000)

The Basic Space, called the Normal Space in the instruction booklet,[1] is a space commonly found on Duel Maps in Mario Party 3. If a player lands on a Basic Space, they will "own" it, and have their face appear on the space. If the other player lands on this space, then they'll lose an amount of Coins (depending on game turns) to the player who owns the space. If a player lands on their own space, they will get the same amount of Coins. If Toad is one of the player's partners, the player will not lose Coins when landing on the opponent's space. Basic Spaces can be cleared or turned into opponent spaces when receiving certain events from ! Spaces.

The amount of Coins lost or gained when landing on an owned Basic Space on certain turn numbers is listed below:

Coins lost or gained per turn
Turn number Coins lost or gained
1-5 3
6-10 5
11-15 8
16 onwards 10

  • The system of having space ownership was fully implemented in Mario Party 6 and Mario Party 7, during which the players can throw Orbs in spaces making them the user's Character Space. This hinders opposing players while rewarding the owners of that space at least 5 coins.
