Mario is one of the most recognizable faces in all of gaming. Even people who have never picked up a controller or turned on a console know him. It’s not hard to understand why given that Mario has starred in over 200 video games and has been featured in TV shows and movies. He’s a cultural icon and now he can be part of your chess set. In this Super Mario chessboard, the white side includes characters such as Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Princess Daisy, Toad, Yoshi, and a signature Mario coin as the pawns. Bowser stands on the opposite end of the board as the black side, along with Bowser Jr, Birdo, Kamek, Goomba, and Koopa shells as the pawns.
Each piece is conveniently labeled with their role as it relates to regular chess. The board itself is a foldable cardboard board with blue and white squares. The set comes packed in a decorative tin that makes it an ideal display item or a gift. The pieces are made from plastic to give them extra durability and it makes for a great child’s chess set or as a collector’s item for Super Mario fans. Check price on Amazon!
