Mario Party: The Top 100: Mario Party Superstars:

Roll Call is a 4-Player minigame found in Mario Party 2, Mario Party: The Top 100, and Mario Party Superstars. The name refers to the real-life term, a "roll call," to be performed by the leader of a group (typically, an army or a classroom) checking to see who is present and who is absent.

Gameplay[edit]

Mario Party 2[edit]

Players have to count the Toads, Boos, or Bob-ombs. For the Toads, there are inanimate mushrooms on the ground with the same caps as the Toads, which should not be counted. For the Boos, they can appear and disappear, and there are rocks on the ground. For the Bob-ombs, players must count only Bob-ombs that do not explode (those that do must be subtracted), and there are Bob-omb crates on the ground. Any player who has the same count as the blue count at the top of the screen when roll call comes wins. If no count matches the blue count at the top of the screen when the character count is totaled, the minigame ends in a draw. Also, it is possible to have all four players win this minigame, if they all have the same count and the blue count at the top of the screen matches. As the characters are counted, the Boos vanish, the Toads leave the forest, and the Bob-ombs explode.

If the player pauses the game, the Bob-ombs, Boos, and Toads disappear, most likely to prevent the player from cheating. However, in the Toad version of the game, the regular mushrooms do not disappear.

In the Mini-Game Coaster, the version of this minigame depends on the difficulty played: On Easy, the Bob-omb version is used. On Normal, the Boo version is used. On Hard, the Toad version is used.

Mario Party: The Top 100[edit]

Mario Party: The Top 100

Only Bob-ombs appear in the Mario Party: The Top 100 edition of this minigame. Gameplay is the same, but players are now ranked based on how close they are to the count at the top. Players who are correct (have the same count as the count at the top) receive first place; other players are ranked based on how close they are to the correct count. A draw will result only if no count matches the correct count and all four players were the same distance in relation to the correct count.

Mario Party Superstars[edit]

Mario Party Superstars

In Mario Party Superstars, all three variations return. However, the Toads are red. As in The Top 100, players are ranked based on how close they are to the correct count, with players who are correct automatically receiving first place.
