This is a fantastic game.  The 1-player mode has many fun challenges, the later courses are amazing, and it's a pretty great golf game.  I use Yoshi.

Mario Party (1):

The first is still my favorite.  I love the boards, especially Wario's Battle Canyon, and Peach's Birthday Cake.   Mushroom Mix-Up and Bumper Balls are amazing mini-games.

Library: Backgammon

I recommend reading this book first.  When you grok it, you will be able to beat a world champ 1/5 low point matches.  That's amazing, and one of my favorite things about Backgammon. 

Then I recommend reading this:
