It’s hard to believe but apparently this is the first officially Nintendo licensed chess set of any kind. This Super Mario Chess Collector’s Edition features Mario and his cast of friends and enemies. One the red side is Mario and the good guys, taking on Bowser and the bad dudes. Luigi is the Queen!!!! I always suspected he played for the other team.
Here’s the full lineup: Mario (king), Luigi (queen), Princess Peach (bishop), Princess Daisy (bishop), Yoshi (knight), Toad (rook), Coin (pawn), Bowser (king), Bowser Jr. (queen), Magikoopa (bishop), Birdo (knight), Goomba (rook), and Koopa Shell (pawn). Overall it’s a pretty cool set for $39.99.
