Chess is one of those awesome games of strategy that any age group (well I guess 7 and up at least!) can play and test their skills. In my opinion there are a lot of similarities between the Mario series and chess, taking away even the board game style play of Mario Party, I am talking about the idea of staying several moves ahead of your opponent and testing your concentration skills. So what better marriage? I’m a big fan of chess and when I came across this Mario Chess set I just had to write a quick article to share it with you.

Possibly one of the most amusing things about this awesome super Mario chess set is the Queen of Mario’s team. That’s right, Luigi has stood up as the Queen piece for the good guys! Brotherly love? I guess I will leave it up to you to draw your own conclusions when you get yourself a set.
