Western Land is a western town in Mario Land in Mario Party 2. Players are dressed as cowboys and have "Deputy" in their names. Toad will wear a cowboy hat and play the guitar. The main attraction is a train named Steamer, who travels around the board and stops at one of the three train stations. If a player wants to ride Steamer, they have to pay the toll of five coins. Once on, the player hits a block that decides which direction Steamer goes. If it shows Toad's head, the train moves forward and stops at the nearest station. If it shows a Goomba, the train moves backward and stops at the nearest station. The Happening Space also makes Steamer move forward to the next station. While Steamer is moving in either way, players that are in the way are knocked back to Start. There is also a Wiggler that owns a milk shop. It asks players that come by if they want to start a hootenanny for twenty coins. If the player accepts, the fee is paid, and all of the other players come to the milk shop area. The Item minigame is Give Me a Brake!, and the Duel minigame is Quick Draw Corks.

At the end of the game when Toad is about to announce the winner, he is interrupted by a red Koopa Troopa who comes and alerts the players that the board villain, Bowser the Brash, is robbing the Koopa Bank. A cutscene then shows Bowser the Brash telling the Koopa Banker to get him more coins from the bank, despite that the bank has no more to give to him. Then, the superstar comes to confront Bowser. The Koopa hides in his shell as the two engage in a pop-gun quick draw. Bowser misses, shooting just above the superstar's head, and gets hit in the stomach by the superstar's cork. He faints, leaving the superstar to be congratulated by the other players, Toad, Koopa, and the Star.

Trivia[edit]

  • Japanese copies of Mario Party 2 have the superstar and Bowser in a quick draw with revolvers. In Western releases, it was changed to a quick draw with pop-guns. The change was likely due to the concern of parents in the Western world. As a result of the change, it also makes it slightly more obvious as to who won the gun duel (as originally, the bullets could not be seen, resulting in tense moments before it was revealed Bowser the Brash ended up shot).
  • With a total of 114 spaces, Western Land is the largest board in the Mario Party series.
  • If the player refuses Wiggler's hootenanny offer, she will say "Y'all come back now, y'hear?", Jed Clampett's catch phrase from the TV series The Beverly Hillbillies.
