Mario Kart: Double Dash has the most rewarding gameplay we've seen in a long while. It's about time that gameplay
became rewarding for you. We'll tell you here how to unlock everything there is to unlock in the game. If you are one of
those people who doesn't want to know who the additional four drivers are, or what the two new battle courses are, then
you might not want to scroll down to read this list.
All things unlocked by placing first on a grand prix cup. The list is arranged in order so that first we go through the cups
(Mushroom, Flower, Star, Special, All Cup) and then the engine sizes (50 CC, 100 CC, 150 CC, Mirror). It doesn't matter
if you play alone, or with others. This is where some sneaky strategy helps, so before we show you the list, here's some
tips to help you win all of them!
Grand Prix Tips

-Playing against another human player can be an advantage! Make sure you choose the option so that the two players are
in separate karts. If there are four players, you can still team up, as long as there are teams of two.
-One human player should be racing for first place. The other should be holding back certain opponents.
-The certain opponents the other player should hold back are the ones in the lead. On the first race, it doesn't matter,
because everyone's starting score is 0.
-Keep in mind that game thinks that the two players are opponents. Try not to hit the actual 'racer' with your items, if
your the other person.
-The other person should wait to use certain items only when the 'racer' is ready. Don't throw a spiny shell if the 'racer' is
in first, and hold on to thunderbolts until the 'racer' has a star.
-The other person should make sure that he does not beat the 'racer', unless it is necessary to keep computer opponents
from scoring more points.
-Mastering the power drift is essential to winning! It is probably easier when you have a second player on your kart,
because that player takes care of the control stick flicking, while you continue to drive.
