What's this? A wiki collaboration not started by me? That's right! The wiki collaboration got hijacked by me (with approval from the creator, Tucayo himself) because no one was working on it as far as I was concerned. I wanted to take on this project because I like the Mario Party games, and like party games in general such as Crash Bash. Party games are those are unique in that they pack in a bunch of mini-games that often have a curiosity of the aesthetic and game mechanics.

The original task Tucayo made was to relocate the in-game text from the template into the article itself. I decided that there should be additional goals of maintaining the Mario Party series mini-games. Initially, I was about to work on the hard ones, and pass the easy workings onto the participating users, but I was going to the way of how participating users abandoned it for being too tedious (and I usually like doing these things repetitively). As a result, I'm running the wiki collaboration; the additional tasks such as finding the time of the mini-game, and the initial record of the mini-game may recommend input from Mario Party series fans themselves. However, this is set up to bridge onto the next wiki collaboration, which recommends input and knowledge from Mario Party series fans. Please pay attention to the instructs and check list because this page will cover both wiki collaborations.

Because checking every single mini-game to see if any parts of it are complete before finalization is tedious, and that most mini-games that I checked wasn't maintained to a sufficient standard, I will assume that all mini-games aren't maintained. I was originally going to make a detailed check list so that people participating will have an easier time selecting which section that want to tackle, but then I would be making unnecessary work to myself. Off it goes!
