Easy win in Fruit Picker
If you stink at the challenge mini-game Fruit Picker (like I do), here's a tip on how to win easily:

Get a piece of paper and draw a circle on it. Once the fruits are revealed, quickly write down the first letter of each fruit on the circle in the same place where they are on the wheel (for example, if the banana is at the top of the wheel, write the letter B at the top of your circle). Once the wheel spins, keep your eye on one or two fruits and then rotate your sheet of paper accordingly with the change in placement of the fruits. Since you've written the order of the fruits down, you will know where they are and win the mini-game easily.
Good Thing To Know
Say you want to use a bullet bill or bowser candy it's good to know that bowser's place has 18 spaces in Star Battle Arena but not in party mode
Humiliate your Friends!
On some minigames, they require you to trace or paint something. If they require you to paint the entire square, remember that just going up and down across will get the job done faster. If they require you to trace, you don't have to be exact.
Miis in the Arcade
When you enter the Free Play Arcade, if you made one or more Miis, they will all appear in the Arcade when you first enter. They appear when Ballyhoo welcomes you.
The Lucky Routes...
Whenever you land on a Lucky Space, you get to go the Lucky Route! It's all Blue Spaces and there are 3 coins on each space! And you get a Star at the end of it. Here's each one:

DK's Treetop Temple: Located at the DK Statue. You are sent to an area in the back. This is your basic Lucky Route. It has a free Star at the End.

Goomba's Booty Boardwalk: Located on a bridge. A Dolphin takes you to Lucky Island! It has less spaces than the Treetop Temple. So you can get the free Star faster!

King Boo's Haunted Hideaway: Find the Space near the stairs to the Second Floor. You will travel the second floor and at the end you will find King Boo for a star. But get to him before someone else or the mansion will change and you'll leave the Lucky Route! That would be unlucky.

Shy Guy's Perplex Express: Located in some random Train Car. You'll get dropped off at PayDay WayStation. Collect the coins off the 5 spaces to get your free star. Then Shy Guys will take you back to the train.

Koopa's Tycoon Town: This one has 2 Lucky Spaces!! They both lead to a 3-Star Hotel! They stay 3-Star even with 0 Coins! You can get 3 Stars for only 1 coin! But someone else could come so pay more.

Bowser's Warped Orbit: Located somewhere... It takes you to Shy Guy's Diner. Since the only way to get Stars on this board is from other players, you will get lots of orbs instead! Cross your fingers! Because you might get Bowser and Bullet Candies!!

Evil (or mean) DK
In Koopa's Tycoon Town, if someone lands on a DK space, he will invest for that person (it can't be you to do the trick). If he invests into a hotel and you still have more coins, make sure it gets to a 3-star hotel after DK invests. If done correctly, you should get a star or two. A good way is to play with a friend. If they use slow-go candy and land on the DK space, make sure he invests in a hotel where you invested 49 coins. You'll earn a star (or two). This is how I beat this level in Star Battle Arena with Blooper so I could unlock Hammer Bro.

Hotel Error!!
