MC Ballyhoo, Mario Party 8

In the Mario Party series, the group use the Dice Block to move around. It rolls from the number 1-10, or 1-5 when a cursed mushroom is active. Since the game is on the screen, the player needs to use the Dice Block to see how many spaces the player goes. The players can't use an ordinary dice to move on the screen.

There is also a volleyball version of the block in Mario Party 5's version of Beach Volleyball where teams can get up to six points if the ball lands on the ground.

In addition to moving the players, the block is also used to determine the turn order of the game by getting the highest number. Dice Blocks also appear in various mini-games with various functions.
