Mario Party 8 is the 8th game in the Mario Party series and the first for the Wii. It features Mario, his friends and enemies visiting a large carnival called the Star Carnival, which is hosted by MC Ballyhoo and Bigtop.
Mario and the gang come to the Star Carnival and enter a contest to see who can win the grand prize of a year's worth of candy! MC Ballyhoo and Big Top host it all, and have the contestants square off on all five boards. The winner emerges and MC Ballyhoo presents the winner with their prize, a year's supply of candy, and a new prize, the legendary Star Rod. But then Bowser comes flying down and takes the Star Rod and challenges Mario and the gang to come to his board, Bowser's Warped Orbit. Upon arrival, the winner has to take on either Hammer Bro. or Blooper. Once victory is achieved, Bowser decides to take matters into his own hands and fights the winner in Superstar Showdown. When Bowser is defeated, the player is awarded their prize (for real this time), and the minigame stand opens.

Here is a list of mini-games in Mario Party 8.
On July 13, the game was recalled in the United Kingdom due to the word "spastic" in the game. The word spastic is considered to be a highly offensive word in the United Kingdom. The word was replaced with the word "erractic" on the re-release day August 3. The word "spastic" was used in the phrase "...turn this train spastic...".
