Playing Super Mario Party alone


I have a particular fondness for the Mario Party games, but with the rule that I leave a good seven or eight titles between purchases.
They're damn near all the same!!

Today I grabbed Super Mario Party on the Switch, and have so far played one single game.
It lasted a sodding hour. Urgh..

Frustrating : There's no fast forward button when CPU players are playing
Frustrating : The somewhat random elements can be occasionally frustrating when playing alone.

Otherwise, it was a fairly fun experience. The CPU players seemed to play fairly, and the controls were.. ok'ish!
One of the minigames required me to focus a magnifying glass by moving the joycon back and forth.. the motion detection wasn't exactly perfect.

Other than that, no real issues.
It's a decent enough Mario Party, and if you like that sort of thing, but have skipped the past 67 versions, then it might be worth a play.

.. but the new Jackbox comes out soon...
Hmmm...

I thought mario party was an exercise in frustration and blind luck for the most part, still bought 2 and 9 though, seemed nice enough to play with the kids

I think I have the first hundred or so Mario Party games on N64 and other formats. They got worse as they went up in number, but as a young family we all enjoyed them.

I want this, but I'll happily wait a while.

Playing through my third round.
I say playing..
But each time I play it feels more and more like I'm just watching an hour long cutscene with occasional QTEs.
