A Star is a recurring element in the Mario Party series. In Mario Party 9 and 10, this is replaced with Mini Stars. Stars are an integral part of the series as the player who collects the most stars by the end of the last turn wins the game. They can be bought on the board for 20 coins, stolen from other players who can afford the 50 coin fee with Boo and received at the end of the game as a Bonus.
