Mario Brothers Mini Golf: Putt-Putt Forthefunofit

Somehow I let these Mario Brothers miniature golf players slip between the cracks when they came out a couple of months back. But in my quest for holiday gifts for gamers, they popped back on my radar screen — so I guess it’s better late than never.

Mario and Luigi Go Golfing

Mario and Luigi sit on your tabletop and can putt a tiny golf ball into a little cup. They’re wired to a Nintendo Famicom-inspired remote control which gets your putter swinging. While they do look like fun, the wonky controls (the A and B buttons control the swing) make your odds of a hole-in-one about as good as me getting one on a real life golf course.

The mini Mario and Luigi golfers cost $14.99 each, so the pair will set you back just under 30 bucks from ThinkGeek. They’re perfect for the Nintendo fan with everything.
