Did anyone else have the desire to start a league for this game after watching the four hour TNT? I honestly feel like this would be a lot of fun.

How could you do a league? If it had 8 players, it'd be something like twelve hours long! Do another level and we're nearly at the 24 hour league!

Heck if anything I think it'd have to be 16 players. Four 4 player games, and then the 4 winners face off.

Sounds like the Scrub League of my dreams.

Wait, does the game have online?

I have been assuming that, like every Mario Party in existence, it was local-only multiplayer.

Where is the fun in that? We all got to rent out a place and all meet up with our T.V's and Wii's there.

If someone can confirm it is possible to get through a game in under 4 hours, which I totally believe is possible, I'll give a super confident... maybe.

Jeff, Vinny, Patrick, and Ryan got one done in 3 hours and 20 minutes, which I'm sure you know about. Time just flew by! It felt like 20 minutes!

@MasturbatingestBear:

Yes. Yessss.

Let me state that another way. If someone can confirm that 30 - 60 min games are more of the norm for... how should we say.. competent players. 3-4+ dedicated hours online is pretty intense. I say I think this is possible as even a game of Starcraft can drag on for hours if people don't know what they are doing, (everyone turtles, cyclical strategies, etc...)

I picked this up off Amazon over the weekend after watching the QL because it looks like a fun stupid wednesday night drinking game. I'd be totally down for some online play as well, but I think we'd need some voice communication -- don't know a lot about the Wii online, does it have a headset?

Anyhow, I'm in if there is some way I can laugh at/yell at other people playing.

Feh, took the chance and picked it up. I'll post an impressions thread as it is a bit long and off topic, but in short I was able to get through a game in under an hour.

Just picked it up. I really dig a good board game. Mario Party's fun, but it's just a big ball of random bullshit, so I'm excited to try somethin out that's got more to it.

I'll post my FC in this topic and the community thread once I get it.

I am planing on picking it up when I'm back home for the holidays. I'd definitely be up for some matches.
