Effect on player

Moves the player directly to the Star

The Genie Lamp[1][2], also known as the Magic Lamp[3], is an item in the Mario Party series that summons the Mushroom Genie or the Genie of the Lamp to take the player to the current location of the Star. However, the player must still pay separately for the Star. A CPU player in Mario Party 3 does not buy a Genie Lamp unless the player has enough coins to both get the Star and the Magic Lamp.

It is only available in Mario Party 2, Mario Party 3, Mario Party 4, and Mario Party: The Top 100. Similar equivalents in other Mario Party games include the Flutter Orb and the Star Pipe/Golden Pipe. The Magic Lamp in Mario Party 7 is available in the Duty-Free Shop as an award for completing the minigame mode King of the River in normal difficulty. In Mario Party: The Top 100, the Genie of the Lamp does not appear; players get shrouded in a puff of smoke that warps them to the Star Balloon location.

A similar lamp appears in Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic, which ended up being replaced with the Magical Potion in Super Mario Bros. 2.

Official description from Mario Party: The Top 100[edit]
