Cursed Dice Block from Mario Party: Star Rush

The Cursed Dice Block is a special Dice Block appearing in World 2-2 and World 2-3 of Mario Party: Star Rush. Here, it comes from obtaining a false duplicate of a character on the map in Toad Scramble, which is actually a Peepa in disguise. The Peepa then curses the party with a Dice Block that either does nothing (0) or subtracts (-1) from the player's total roll. The Peepa cannot be selected, and it eventually disappears after a set period of time.

The Cursed Dice Block returns in Mario Party Superstars as an item. In this game, it functions similarly to the Poison Mushroom from Mario Party 3. When used, the player is allowed to choose a single player as their target (including themself). The target of the Cursed Dice Block has their potential roll reduced to 1 to 3 the next time they roll the Dice Block, much to their dismay while the character who targeted the player laughs. Players can break the curse by using a Mushroom, Double Dice, Triple Dice, or Custom Dice Block. On Yoshi's Tropical Island and Peach's Birthday Cake, Bowser will sometimes sell a Cursed Dice Block to any player that passes him at a price much higher than the price of 3 coins it sells for at the shop.
