|First appearance||Mario Party 8|
|Appears in||Mario Party 8|
|Effect||Starts the "Lucky Event".|
The Lucky Space is a type of space found in Mario Party 8. When stepped on, it takes the player to a place otherwise unable to go to, at the end of the path is a free star.
When stepped on the Lucky Space, the player is taken to a long stone platform filled with coins with a star at the end.
A Dolphin will take the player to a secret sacred island, with five spaces with 3 coins each and a large treasure chest with a star in it. Upon reaching the chest, two Goomba god statues will beg the player to take the star and go away so they can sleep.
King Boo's Haunted Hideaway's Lucky Space involves the player being taken up to the attic of the haunted mansion. At the end is King Boo and you still have to pay 10 coins to buy a star.
This Lucky Space on this board triggers the player getting dropped off at a train station lined with coins. When all the coins are collected, a Shy Guy conductor takes the player back to the train with a hand car, but you'll still get a free star.
This is the only Mario Party 8 board where two lucky spaces can be found. At each location, a Koopa in a blue convertible pulls up to the curb and offers a ride for the player, who can't refuse. The Koopa speeds off and swerves around town and drop him off at a sidewalk covered in coins. In the middle, there's a three star hotel that can be bought with one coin.
If a player lands on a lucky space in this board, a Shy Guy will take the player to a separate part of the board. There is no free star, though there is a lot of Bowser Candy and Bullet Candy. Using those candies is the key to winning the game.
In every level, except Bowser Station and DK's Jungle Ruins, landing on a lucky square would, either make them go into a tube with Mini Star Spaces, either go into a Toad House and choose 2 of the 4 cards.
