Mario Party 7 (マリオパーティ 7 Mario Pāti Sebun) is the seventh in a series of board game style video games for Nintendo platforms and is the fourth and final title in the Mario Party series for the Nintendo GameCube. It was released in North America on November 7, 2005, in Japan on November 10, 2005, in Europe on February 10, 2006, and in Australia on June 8, 2006. It features 88 new minigames, makes use of the microphone peripheral introduced with Mario Party 6, and includes six entirely new worlds (one world being unlocked).
To enable Mic support go to Options -> Configure -> GameCube, and set Slot B to "Mic". Set its button to GCN Pad 2, it does not work on Pad 1.
Spinner Cell Minigame 
The Spinner Cell minigame eventually shows only a black screen. At the start of the game, it renders well but the characters are flickering. As the game continues, only the shadows are rendered, and finally the whole screen turns to black for the rest of the game. See . Fixed by .
