Super Mario Chess Set: Peach to Goomba 4 – Checkmate!

by


Mario and all his friends are ready to take on King Bowser and his Queen Koopa in this Super Mario collector’s edition chess set from USAopoly.

The chess set includes 32 hand-painted figurines from the classic Nintendo video game series including Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Yoshi, Toad, 1-up mushroom, Bowser, Bowser Jr., Birdo, Goomba, Hammer Bros., and Magikoopa.

I don’t know about you guys, but I think I’d rather have Toad playing the role of the pawns instead of some lousy gold coins – but beggars can’t be choosers, I suppose. And what’s with Luigi being the Queen to Mario’s King? That’s just a little too weird for me. I know Peach is just a Princess, but still – I think that might have been a better choice. At least Magikoopa looks the part of the bishop.

The entire set should be available this Fall, and can be pre-ordered now over at First4Figures for $44.99 (USD). At least they didn’t put a crown on Luigi’s head.

    I don’t know why Birdo is with Bowser. She should be with Mario. Goomba should be a pawn. Wario should be a rook. Make Luigi a bishop. Peach should be queen. I LOVE TOAD! He should be a knight. After all, Toad is Peach’s guard.

  6. Jason says:

    Birdo’s evil? Koopa Troopa is more evil. He should take Birdo’s place. Plus if she is “evil” she should be queen.

    SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

    Pawns-Goombas/Toads
    Rooks-Koopa Troopas/Wario & Waluigi
    Knights-Koopa Paratroopas/Yoshis(Red & Green)
    Bishops-Magikoopas/Luigi & Daisy
    Queens-Bowser jr./Mario
    Kings-Bowser/Peach
    This makes more sense to me because if Peach gets captured, the game is over.
