Toad Road is the first board in story mode in Mario Party 9. The player will go up against Shy Guy and two other characters. If Shy Guy wins he takes all the mini stars back to Bowser and forces the player to start the board again. The two bosses the player faces here are Lakitu at the fort and Wiggler beyond the Bowser Gate. Their battles are pretty easy in comparison to the others but still a challenge. After completing this board the player can move on to Bob-omb Factory. This is a board that is playable from the start through party mode.
