Yoshi's Tropical Island
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
Yoshi's Tropical Island is Yoshi's board in Mario Party. Consisting of Watermelon Island on the left, Cantaloupe Island on the right (both islands are shaped like two Yoshis), two adjoining bridges, and a small island in the middle, it was said that many Yoshis live here, but only two are shown on the board (three if a player has Yoshi as his or her character). A Pink Yoshi is on the small island for unknown reasons and is surrounded by whirlpools, while a Blue Yoshi is watching from Watermelon Island, unable to do anything about it. Players need to collect Stars to get rid of the whirlpools and reunite the two Yoshis.
At the end of the game, the winner's Stars get rid of the whirlpools (unlike other boards, the individual Stars do not merge into one big Star on this board), and form a bridge for the Blue Yoshi to cross to meet his friend on the small island. The winner quickly comes to the island as well, and the players in second and third place, Toad, Koopa, Boo, a Thwomp, and the Star follow. The player in fourth place tries to join them, but gets taken away by Bubba.
The board is divided into two islands with two one-way toll bridges between each one, with no other branching paths. This ensures that a player must pass either Toad or Bowser every time they circle an island, and must remain on the same island if they cannot afford to pay the toll to cross.
The following table shows how many spaces there are on the board, and how many there are of a certain type.
