Mario Kart Party Supplies – The Background
Mario Kart Party Supplies are based on Mario Kart, a series of go-kart-style racing video games. The game series is developed by Nintendo. Mario Kart video game series debuted in 1992 and enjoyed great commercial success. Nintendo has released four Mario Kart games for home consoles, two arcade games and two portable games. Mario Kart 3DS will be the ninth game of the Mario Kart series. It is set to be released in 2011.
The first video game in the Mario Kart series was Super Mario Kart that was released in 1992 and 1993 for Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Since 2009 and 2010, it is also available on Virtual Console. The second game in the series was Mario Kart 64. It was released in 1996 and 1997 for Nintendo 64. Since 2007, this game is also available on Virtual Console. The third game in the Mario Kart video game series was Mario Kart: Super Circuit that was released in 2001 for Game Boy Advance. In 2003, the fourth game of the series was released. It was called Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and could be played on Nintendo GameCube. Mario Kart DS, the fifth game in the Mario Kart series, was released in 2005. It was made for Nintendo DS. 2008 saw the release of the sixth game of the series. It was made for Wii and was titled Mario Kart Wii.
Mario Kart Arcade Series includes Mario Kart Arcade GP that was released in 2005 and Mario Kart Arcade GP 2 that was released in 2007.
Because of the tremendous commercial success of the Mario Kart video game series, a lot of Mario Kart merchandise is also available in the market. Mario Kart DS Figure-8-Circuit, remote-controlled Mario Karts and Japanese figurines of Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad, Yoshi, Wario, Donkey Kong, and Bowser are some of them. Mario Kart Party Supplies are quite popular among the children.
In the series, there are different characters from the Mario universe. They race on various Mario-themed tracks. They use go-karts for racing and these are humorously themed. In Wii version, motorcycles are used for racing. When the players drive into coins or item boxes, they get different power-up items. These can be used for various purposes, like, for a brief boost of speed for the player’s vehicle or offensive or defensive attacks. In the initial version of the game, the player has to drive over the coins or item boxes to obtain the power-up items. Each game can be played in multiplayer mode as well as single mode.
In Grand Prix mode, there are four to eight themed cups. The players race against one another. For each cup, there are multiple race courses. Then there are three difficulty levels (speed settings). Based on the finishing positions of the players, points are awarded, and the winner of the race gets the most points. The player with the most cumulative points wins the cup.
In Mario Kart Super Circuit and Super Mario Kart, coins are picked along the track. When a player obtains ten or more coins, his car can reach the maximum speed. But if his car falls off the track, bumps into another car or hits any items the power gained by the coins is lost. The coins unlock other tracks too and they play a role in determining a player’s ranking.
Time Attack (Time Trial) mode is a solo race mode where the player tries to achieve the fastest time on the particular track. Three speed boosts (called mushrooms) are available to the players that can be used at any time. When the race is finished, a record is set and saved as a “ghost”, and now the player has to compete against it to break the record. In Mario Kart 64, Mario Kart DS, Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and Mario Kart Wii, “Staff Ghosts” were pre-loaded that could be unlocked and the players could race against them. Downloading of ghosts from external sources is also possible in Mario Kart DS, Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart Super Circuit.
In VS. mode, up to eight players (depending on the platform) can compete against each other simultaneously in a single race. Mario Kart DS was the first to offer an option to race against CPU opponents. The CPU difficulty as well as the number of teams, races and items can be set in the game. This mode does not unlock anything.
In the Battle Mode, there are one or more battle scenarios. The players can fight the battles as solo or as teams. The most popular battle is the Balloon Battle where the players remove the balloons of the other players by hitting them with items.
In Free Run Mode, the player selects his kart, character and course and races against all opponents. This is a pure entertainment mode and does not unlock anything.
Mario Kart series has been awarded 5 Guinness World Records in the Guinness World Records: Gamer’s Edition 2008 including “Best Selling Handheld Racing Game” and “First Console Kart Racing Game”. Super Mario Kart was also named number 1 on the list of top 50 console games of all time by Guinness World Records.
Mario Kart Party Supplies – The Options
Mario Kart Party Supplies: The Ultimate Party For The Gamers!
You may select Basic Party Pack from our Mario Kart Party Supplies which includes all the stuff you need for 8 guests. Or you may go with the Deluxe Party Pack from our Mario Kart Kids Party Supplies that has much more items than the Mario Kart Basic Pack. The Mario Kart deluxe pack is also for 8 guests. If you need favor boxes as well, I would suggest you to choose the combination of Deluxe Party Pack & 8 Favor Boxes from our Mario Kart Kids Birthday Party Supplies as it would cost you much more if you purchase them separately. If you think that the number of guests may exceed 8 you should consider Mario Kart Party Pack Add-On as it contains extra items for the extra guests. You may order Mario Kart Party Favor Boxes separately as well.
I’ve personally used Mario Kart Party Supplies for my kid’s birthday and through my personal experience I would recommend it to all Mario Kart fans.
