This review is from: Super Mario Chess Collector's Edition Tin (Toy)
My son found Super Mario Bros. Chess online and decided to buy it with his birthday money. The pieces are well made and sturdy. They are also clearly marked as to which type of piece they are: pawn,rook,queen,etc. I think using the Mario Bros. characters makes the game a little more fun to learn for younger kids. My son is 8 and he has been asking everyone to play chess with him since his game arrived. I think he would give it a two thumbs up and so do I.
