OverviewOverview

Dreams Party is a turn based family board game for up to 4 players. There are two boards to choose from, Welcome Garden and Halloween. Like Mario Party, it creates the fun of a real board game but combines it with mini-games when players land on the same square.

Choose from a selection of cute characters as your pieces. There are always four players in play, with the un-chosen characters controlled by computer so you can play this on your own or with friends. Roll the dice and your character will move along the board. Land on the same square as an opponent or a special square to compete in mini-games.

Dreams Party generally uses single button presses for the mini games which are competitive. There are multiple mini-games which include a sack race, pop the most popcorn by pressing a button furiously, a shooting arcade and other games which requires fast reflexes. Winners of games get to move on a few spaces, and losers may have to go backward.

Board games have in the past relied on having multiple people available to play. The joy of this game is that with the computer controlled characters you can play a four player game with less players. You can also play without the mini-games if you wish, so it is just about the dice rolls (suitable for young children). A fun game for the whole family to play together.

5+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Younger children can play without the mini-games so the only interaction required is to press a button to roll dice.

Account Rating

Account required for online play that has 7 years old as minimum age. You must be 7 years old to have a PSN account, which is required to play Dreams. To set this up you need permission from a parent or guardian. Unless the parent or guardian specify not to restrict Network Features | Communication and User-Generated Content, or make an exception for Dreams they will only be able to access games and assets created by Media Molecule (rather than games made by the community).

AccessibilityAccessibility

Some of the mini games require timed button presses or repeated button presses so some dexterity with the controller is required, however only one button is pressed at a time. The stick is not used as movement is automatic.

There are not always sound cues, but some of the mini-games do provide this. The halloween board contains very mild jump scares.
