History[edit]

Mario Party 3[edit]

A Toad Item Bag from Mario Party 3

In Mario Party 3, Item Bags can be purchased at Item Shops for 30 coins. When purchased, the Item Bag is immediately used, and the player is allowed to hit it a number of items equal to the amount of room for items they currently have: three hits if the player is carrying no items, two if they are carrying one item, and one if they are carrying two items. Each time the player hits the Item Bag, they will acquire a random item chosen from the items potentially sold by the shop that the Item Bag was purchased from (excluding another Item Bag). If the Item Bag was bought from Toad's Trading Post, the Item Bag may also contain one of the rare items: a Lucky Charm, a Koopa Kard, a Wacky Watch, or a Barter Box. In this game, the Item Bag is adorned with the face of the shopkeeper it was bought from: Toad's when bought at Toad's Trading Post, or Baby Bowser's when bought at Baby Bowser's Joint.

Mario Party 4[edit]

In Mario Party 4, Item Bags function largely the same as in Mario Party 3, and are once again able to be purchased at Item Shops for 30 coins. Since all Item Shops in Mario Party 4 have the same potential selection, Item Bags can contain any item in the game, excluding Item Bags themselves and Bowser Suits, which can only be obtained by landing on Bowser Spaces. They were also redesigned to feature a question mark pattern instead of the shopkeeper's face.

Mario Party Superstars[edit]

An Item Bag from Mario Party Superstars

In Mario Party Superstars, Item Bags can no longer be bought from Item Shops. Instead, they can be obtained by landing on a Lucky Space. When obtained, they function largely the same as in their previous appearances, granting the player randomly-chosen items to fill up their item capacity.
