Cheat the computer character
When playing Adventure mode, you can take over any computer controlled character to stop him from buying or stealing your stars.
When you see a com. character close to a star, press START to pause, then press A to bring up the Settings menu, then bring up Controller Settings and change your character to com so when you reach Toad or Big Boo you can refuse stars or stealing coins. That way you can make your com player as hard as you want and still win.
