The new zone will be like the first, but with three flames coming out of the tiny pillars. Make your way across again. You must now solve a larger puzzle with little pieces. Once you complete the puzzle, go left to face Bowser. Stomp three buttons. It will form a triangular beam. Make sure Bowser is lured inside the triangle. He will get shocked. Do this five times to defeat Bowser.
Cheep Cheep Sweep mini-game
Go to the CPU's or another player's cage for the Cheep Cheep. When at the cage, block them from whatever way they are coming, and just walk the opposite way they are except directly in front of them. Just get one or four Cheep Cheep and do this trick.

To ride the Graveyard Train, visit the Giant Red Boo (when the invisible path is there). Talk to him and all of the Red Boos that were there will be gone, except for the candle. Then, past the item shop is an area for the train. Coffins will pick you up and you must go to the boneyard (graveyard). You can also pick anyone up in your path to ride along with you.

Better chance in ball lottery
Move the Analog-stick (Back) for a 99% chance to get 30 coins in the lottery.
If you have to choose a Scratch Card, always choose the one on the bottom and second from the right. You can win up to 100 coins.
Getting mini-games easily
Go to Party mode and chose any board. Make sure there is only one human player. Once the game starts and it is the first person's turn, press [Start] then press (A). Go to "Controllers" and put yourself down as a CPU player. Then, press (B) to resume the game. If done correctly, you should have a game of all CPU players. Wait until the game is over and your CPU players should have unlocked some mini-games. Note: Once you make the game all CPU players, you will not be allowed to become a human player again.
At the start up screen where the cards are, choose story mode. Every time you fully complete a board, there will be a star above it instead of a picture. When you get all of the stars you can go to the Bowser board. If you have gotten some presents on one character and want to switch to another character, you will have to do all the boards again on the character you switched from. To prevent this from happening, start with one person, then continue until all the boards are finished.
Go to the extra room and play Challenge Booksquirm. When you reach thirty pages, Bowser-shaped holes will appear.

Go to the Present Room. Highlight a completed doll house and press [Up] on the house. You will see the constellation that the "Star" showed you when you defeated Bowser.
