Features

Mario has jumped out of the video game world and onto a chessboard in this Super Mario Brothers Chess game. Designed as a collector edition, this Super Mario game can also be played using the 32 hand-painted figurines and themed chessboard. Each figure features a label indicating the type of playing piece it represents. Beginning players and children will get just as much enjoyment from this great game as experienced adults. Children can even use the figurines as characters in unrelated play. You will still want to teach them to use their strategic thinking caps by learning to play chess. Mario and the good guys are ready to defeat Bowser’s thugs to become the chess champions. This is one of those Super Mario games that everyone should own!
