Mario Party 9 event at the Nintendo Experience Melbourne

On Saturday March 31st 2012 I went to the Mario Party 9 party at the Nintendo Experience above EB Games on Swanston Street Melbourne.


When we got there we had to sign up to play Mario Party 9 and were given these passes. I think the concept was to go to each station (5 or so) and play the mini games there and get a stamp when you were done. Get all stamps and you get a show bag. You also get a raffle ticket.

There was also free juice, coke, mario and luigi cupcakes etc. I hear the Luigi ones tasted better.



I spent the whole time playing Pokemon cards against little kids in a corner so I didn’t get a poster but scored some free promo Pokemon cards. The show bags had a sticker sheet, Mario Party 9 poster and a pencil case.

The raffle had about 30 winners and I had ticket 84, tickers 81,82,85 all won and the kid who came in before me (had met him previously) was raging hard. Most prizes were small promo items or things I already had but there were some cool travel coffee mugs but I didn’t win anything.

The winner got 7 wii games including Mario Party 9, Wii music, Animal Crossing, Kirby’s Epic Yarn, PokePark and some others.
