This is the only Mario Party game to have a title screen that changes depending on which character wins a board.
There was actually a court case due to the now infamous Tug of War mini-game which cause blisters, welts, and other injuries on the hand. It was so bad that Nintendo couldn't re-release the game on the Wii's Virtual Console service.

In the Japanese version of the game, both Wario and Luigi had different "MISS" lines. If they failed or "Missed" (like got to Bowser or lost a mini-game), they would say "Oh, my god." They changed it so Wario would say "Doh, I missed" and Luigi to say, "Ohhh" instead.

As a result of the court case against Nintendo, people who blistered their hands playing the stick rotating minigames could receive a free pair of gaming gloves.
Wario: D'oh I missed!
