In Mario Party 2, there is an infamous luck-based minigame known as Day at the Races. Each player picks between one of four characters to race, each with their own unique abilities.
- Whomp – Walks fast but falls over and takes a long time to get up.
- Thwomp – Rises above the floor and jumps forward but then drops down and takes a long time to get up.
- Boo – Disappears and then reappears a lot further than before, but faceplants on the ground sometimes.
- Bob-omb – Starts a spark running from its fuse and moves very fast but occasionally falls over.
As a kid it seemed like some racers would win more often than others. (aka: I always picked Boo). However, I don't know whether this was actually true or not.
Does each character have an equal chance of winning? Or are some racers better than others?
