“Welcome to Faire Square! Here at Faire Square, you can win coins and Stars playing games of luck! This isn’t a regular Star Space. You always buy Stars here instead! You can buy up to five Stars if you’ve got enough coins! Star prices change between day and night, so be sure to buy them when they’re cheap!”
Brighton, Mario Party 6

Faire Square is one of the boards in Mario Party 6. It is named after the phrase "fair and square". Faire Square is a lit town with many buildings and Halloween decorations. A Whomp blocks a path in the middle of the board, and charges ten coins for any characters who wish to pass.

There are only four ? Spaces on this board. Landing on the one on the top-left building makes a broom fly out of the window and takes the player somewhere on the center of the board. The two ? Spaces on the top-right building will make players go inside, and they are somehow taken back to start. The ? Space at the top of the board will start a game of chance that involves all players. During the day, players give up ten coins each. Then, one by one, they choose the chimney which they think will produce the tallest plant. When all are picked, the plants reveal themselves, and the tallest plant gives the player that picked it all the coins that were put in the pot. At night, the game is the same, but players give up one Star each. The winner ends up with all the Stars given.

Other events happen depending on the time of day, too. When players go by the big chest at the left side of the board, they are given the choice of paying coins to play the slot game. The price is 5 coins during the day, with small coin prizes, and ten at night, with higher coin prizes. Players that line up three treasure chests will get all the coins that were saved up from players' past payments (this is similar to the Koopa Bank from previous Mario Party games). On the right side of the board is a hat shell game called the Star Shuffle. Players pay one Star to play. The Star is placed in one of the hats, and they will shuffle around for a while. During the day, there are three hats to choose from that shuffle slowly, and guessing correctly rewards the player with two Stars. At night, there are 6 hats that shuffle quickly, and if the player guesses right, they will get three Stars. If the player makes a wrong choice in either day or night versions, they lose that Star. The main feature concerning the day/night system is at the center of the board, for this is where players can get Stars. During the day, Stars are personally given away by Brighton himself, and he will charge players twenty coins per Star. At night, Twila gives out Stars for a random price that she decides by hitting a Dice Block. The prices are either five, ten, thirty, or forty coins. Both times, players can purchase up to five stars if they have enough coins, but having enough coins to buy more still puts the cap at five.

  • When paying the Whomp to move out of the way, the sound effect that plays when a choice is selected in the game is instead played after the Whomp starts moving, rather than when the choice is chosen.
  • Despite a DK Space or Bowser Space appearing at the southeast of the board in-game, images of the board released by Nintendo (shown above) show a Blue Space instead.
