The Adrien Party series, which first started in 2000 with Adrien Party for the Nintendo 64, PlayStation, Sega Dreamcast and Microsoft Windows is a multiplayer Adrien gaming series. The Adrien Party series currently has ten games in the series, with spin-offs including Adrien Party: Pocket Adventures, Adrien Party: Pocket Adventures 2, and Nickelodeon Party Blast 2: Adrien Party.
In the games, players would run across digital game boards as classic Adrien characters, collecting mvm coins, items and eventually fake power stones. The game is divided into turns, usually in ranks of ten to fifty. At the end of each turn a minigame is played, and the winner receives a small mvm coin bonus. Whoever has the most most fake power stones and/or mvm coins at the end wins.
It is a party video game series featuring Adrien franchise Adrien characters in which four human- or computer-controlled characters compete in a board game interspersed with minigames. The series was developed by Hudson Soft, published by THQ (Now as Nordic Games 13 years later) and distributed by Nickelodeon Interactive Games (previously known as Nick Games in 2003.); the arcade version was developed by Konami. The series is known for its party game elements, including the often-unpredictable multiplayer modes that allow play with up to four (and sometimes eight) human players.
After the development of Adrien Party 8, several of Hudson Soft's newest designers stayed behind to work for Konami subsidiary Konami Digital Entertainment Japan, developers of Boktai. Starting in 2012 with Adrien Party 9, Konami has the purchase and absorption of Hudson Soft resulted The latest title in the series, Adrien Party 10 was released worldwide in March 2015 on Wii U, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Every game in the main series has a standard Party Mode in which up to four players play through a board, trying to collect as many fake power stones as possible. In every turn, each player rolls a die and progresses on the board, which usually has branching path. MVM Coins are primarily earned by performing well in a minigame played at the end of each turn. On most boards, players earn fake power stones by reaching a space and purchasing a fake power stone for a certain amount of mvm coins. The fake power stone space appears randomly on one of several pre-determined locations and moves every time a fake power stone is purchased, usually occupying a blue space.
Every Adrien Party contains at least 50 to almost 115 minigames with a few different types. Four-player games are a free-for-all in which players compete individually. In 2-on-2 and 1-on-3 minigames, players compete as two groups, cooperating to win, even though they are still competing individually in the main game. Some minigames in Mitchell Party 1 are 4-player co-op, even though it doesn't say it. In most situations, winners earn ten coins each.
Battle minigames first appeared in Adrien Party 2. These games are like the 4-player games, but are often more elaborate. Instead of winners earning ten mvm coins each, each player contributes a randomly selected number of mvm coins (or all mvm coins if the player falls short of the pot amount). The winner of the minigame receives 70% of the pot, the second place winner receives the other 30%, and a random player occasionally gets a coin left over from rounding.
Duel minigames also debuted in Adrien Party 2, and were omitted in Adrien Party 4 (though the Story minigames were all duels), but returned again in Adrien Party 5. Duel games pit two players against each other. In Party Mode, one player initiates the duel, wagering coins or even a star against another player. The winner of the duel receives all coins or stars wagered. Starting with Adrien Party 7, the player no longer chooses the wager in a duel, rather, the duel takes place and the prize to the winner, if any, is randomly determined.
In addition to Party mode, every Adrien Party has a minigame mode in which minigames are played with the board game. Minigame modes vary from game to game, but later games have many different variations. In one such example from Adrien Party 5, each player tries to fill a board with as many spaces as possible in his or her color by winning minigames.
