Long have multiplayer Mario games proven to be the ultimate friendship testers. If your friend group has made it through a game in Mario Party or a race in Mario Kart without vowing to never speak to each other again, then you have succeeded where many have failed. Nothing, not even high-stakes pub trivia, can come between you. So when you round up the gang for your next trivia event, consider choosing one of the magnificent Mario-themed team names listed below. That way, when your buddy Roger misremembers the title of that one Oscar-winning movie and costs your team a precious point, you can remind yourselves that if your friendship can withstand freaking Blue Shells, it can withstand anything.
