Gameplay can be simple, allowing even novices to learn the ropes quickly. On each of the five game boards, you and three other players will take turns moving around the map. Land on an empty space and you can place a castle on that map. Land on the castle again and gain cookies, which are this Wii game's currency. However, land on an opponent's castle and a battle will begin. These battles take the form of mini games. There are over 50 minigames to play in "Pac-Man Party," with each one having different goals. Each minigame can require quick reflexes and some strategy to win. If you win, you will take your opponent's castle. If you lose, you will lose a set amount of cookies. Determining a winner is based on the particular game board. Some games end when a set number of points is reached, and others end after a specific time limit.In addition to blank spaces, you can also land on a space that could change the course of the match. For example, the Tarot Tent space will give you riches beyond your imagination. Other spaces will take your cookies or transport you to a new location. Each match even features boss battles to overcome. In addition to the story, you can compete in multiplayer matches against your friends. Each of the boards from the story mode is available to play in multiplayer. Each board has a different theme. For example, one board may have a snowy theme while another is set in a desert. Each game you compete in will relate to the theme of the board in some way. Since every match of "Pac-Man Party" is different, the title can have a significant amount of replayability.There is also a mode that lets you compete in each minigame without playing on a board.
