Star Spaces (referred to generically as Stars in Mario Party 10) are spaces that appear in the Mario Party series, where if a character (who has 20 coins) passes by one, the host of the Mario Party game asks them if they will trade 20 coins for a Star (giving them a "Yes" or "No" answer). The character can say "Yes" or "No", and they either get a Star or not depending on the choice.

After the character gets the star, the Star Space moves to a different location in the map. On certain boards, such as Faire Square from Mario Party 6, and DK's Stone Statue from Mario Party DS, the Star Space's location remains stationary. The Star Space in DK's Stone Statue is known as the Star Splurge Space.

When the Star Space moves to a different location, there is a small chance that the new Star Space appears directly where a character is standing. However, this character will be unable to buy the Star.

When characters pass a Star Space, they can buy it if they have enough coins. How many coins they have to trade depends on the board. Traditionally, they have to trade 20 coins for a star, but on certain boards, the star may cost as little as five coins or as much as 40.
