Bowser's Peculiar Peak (known as Bowser's Bizarre Volcano in Europe and Australia) is one of the seven boards in Mario Party: Island Tour. The objective of this board is the exact opposite of the objectives of all other boards in the game except Star-Crossed Skyway; it's a race against Bowser. This is an unlockable board in the game available once other boards excluding Shy Guy's Shuffle City are played. This board introduces Bowser Dice Blocks which can hinder the player; if the player rolls doubles, they will remain where they are. When a player reaches Bowser, the player has to roll a 3 or lower to prevent being knocked away. Players can still roll doubles if they reach Bowser. The player still on the board and farthest away from Bowser wins.

When a player gets knocked away, Lakitu is shown catching them and holding them, presumably to keep them safe.

Description[edit]

  • NTSC: First place is the worst place in this reverse race. Bowser is waiting for the "winner"!
  • PAL: Whoever reaches the goal loses?! It's dangerous to move forward in Bowser's diabolical volcano!

Bowser Dice Blocks[edit]

One of the main gimmicks of the stage is that Bowser Dice Blocks are handed to players based on their performance in minigames. These blocks are added to the regular Dice Block rolled on each player's turn, increasing the amount of spaces they can potentially move on a turn (and thus, shortening the time it takes to reach Bowser). However, rolling doubles will prevent them from moving.

Minigame results[edit]

Minigame Results
First N/A
Second 1to2BowserDice.PNG 1 to 2 Bowser Dice Block
Third 1to3BowserDice.PNG 1 to 3 Bowser Dice Block
Fourth 1to6BowserDice.PNG 1 to 6 Bowser Dice Block


NOTE: The player who got 1st place cannot roll doubles, but can move a maximum of six spaces on the turn.

When playing with fewer people, the distribution is different:

  • When playing with three players, the first place player gets a Bronze Bowser Dice Block, second place a Silver Bowser Dice Block and third a Gold Bowser Dice Block.
  • When playing with two players, the first place player gets a Bronze Bowser Dice Block and second place a Gold Bowser Dice Block.

Bowser Challenge[edit]

Toad takes on the Bowser Challenge.

If the player reaches the goal first, that person will participate in the Bowser Challenge. If the player rolls a one, two, or three, he or she will be safe for another turn, but if the player rolls a four or more, then Bowser will fling the player far away, which ends the game and that person will receive last place.
