The Dice Block is an item that appeared in all Mario Party games. By hitting the floating block above the player, he/she rolls the dice to allow him/her to move forward anywhere from one to ten spaces (up to twenty if a Mushroom is used, thirty if a Super Mushroom Capsule is used and five if a Cursed Mushroom Capsule/Slowgo Candy is used). Depending on which Mario Party game is played, the design changes.
This item not only lets the player move forward, it also allows various other options such as deciding the order of play at the beginning of the game, breaking ties in minigames, and is sometimes used in some board events.
In Mario Party 8, the Dice Block comes in four colors: blue, red, golden yellow and green.
Super Mario Party introduces Character Dice Blocks that are unique to each playable character.
