Gate Guy

Gate Guy is one of the Duel Boards in Mario Party 3. The gimmick here is the two gates (called Gate Guys) that are on the northern and southern parts of the board. They always stop players to ask if they want to go through the path they block for 5 coins. Paying the fee lets them cross the center of the board as a shortcut to the opponent or to the start spaces.

In Story Mode, the player has to duel Wario (or Luigi if the player is Wario) on this board for the Wit Star Stamp.


The following table shows how many spaces there are on the board, and how many there are of a certain type.
