Raising Your Score at Royal Raceway R

Position Points and Gimmicks are the Most Important

In order to obtain the most points possible, you should aim for a high position and use items to knock your opponents out of the lead.

Tips for Raising Your Score

Rocket Start

Mini-Turbo Boosts.jpg
The race track of this course has a lot of curves. Utilize each curve by performing Mini-turbo Boosts. By using Mini-turbo Boosts, you will be able to get ahead against your opponents, and performing one will give you extra points.

Use Items

Item (Royal Raceway R).jpg
Make sure to hit your opponents when throwing your items forward or backward. Hitting an opponent will grant you points and slow them down at the same time. This will give you the advantage to get ahead of them and take the lead. Do not forget to save at least one item to defend yourself from getting hit.

      Personally, I think if I try reeeaaaalllllly hard I can get it, it would be a great celebration for a player that hasn’t spent any money at all in the game. Only 40,000-41,000 points left
      (Yes it’s me, Lakitu. Once this tour has ended I will change my name to normal again).
