My daughter and I are Mario and chess FANATICS!!!!! We play chess several times a day and were extatic with this set. Until, some water accidently got on part of the board. We immediately patted the water off and attempted to properly dry the board. Within a 30 second period, the board completely fell apart, paint pealed off, and the board deteriorated several minutes later. Did the people who made this board actually put no thought into some sort of protective coating so the slightest shred of liquid would not cause it to completely collapse? This thing does have "KIDS" written on it, Right? We are very responsible with our things. Especially, our things related to Mario and video games but, this is rediculous. We ordered a replacement board today. I suggest you laminate the board, then adhere it to a sanded cutting board if you want it to last longer than a week. You can even get creative and paint the cutting block with yours and yours childs' names painted mario style on each end of the board to personalize it and make it fun. My point is, you better get creative if you plan to get playing. Otherwise, you won't play long!!!

UPDATE 1/24/13

I just had the new board laminated at Office Depot and now IT IS AWESOME!!!!!! the first thing you need to do when buying this board is to pay $1.99 to have a protective plastic coating put over it and it will last forever! LONG LIVE MARIO CHESS!!!!!!!!!!

High quality, excellent opportunity for fun, excitement and learning chess for Mario Brothers lovers. Children of all ages would enjoy this. My children even love to use pieces as bath toys to continue the fun.... totally waterproof pieces.

This is a must buy for kids who love Mario Brothers and need an alternative to constant video games.

I got this for my 7 year old son, who is a huge mario fan, but also wanted to learn about chess. The characters are useful for remembering the various types of moves and he has had a lot of fun playing. The good vs evil set up gives him motivation to win and thus he is learning in the process. A very good introductory set, for to teach kids who like the mario universe but might be confused by the normal chess pieces. 5 Stars *****

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.

I debated buying this several times, but the price always kept me away. I finally took the plunge and bought it, hoping it would interest my 7 year old son in chess.

And it worked. He absolutely loves playing this. The pieces are quite durable - they are good enough to be stand alone figures if they weren't attached to their bases.

It takes a little while to get used to what figure it what (Luigi is the queen??) but once you figure it out, it becomes second nature.

The board gets very crowded - Bowser is huge, so its often difficult to see open diagonal paths.

The bottom line is that if your kid loves Mario, then they will love this. I've recommended it to several friends and while it is a bit pricey, it really is worth it.

It comes in a nice tin that protects the game pieces.

You might also check our Mario Yahtzee - it is quite good as well.

I am a big Nintendo fan, so having this set of figurines is fun in itself. They are well made, with nice expressions and poses, and seem relatively durable. The game of chess, however, seems secondary. The included board does not live up to the quality of the figures or the metal case. Some of the figures are also a bit bulky to fit on their spaces, or have illogical roles (Luigi as queen?). Still, chess can certainly be played, with frequent checking of what the pieces are supposed to be, and chess is fun.

If you have a Mario fan (or are one), this is a fun set of figurines that you will likely find a good value for the price. If you are just looking for a good game of chess, this is the wrong castle.

This toy is super cool. I purchased it because my 2 boys (ages 6,3) are obsessed with Mario. I looked at the sets of action figures and they were so Expensive, this set has it all. I have been OCD about the kids keeping the parts together on this one. My 6 year old learned to play chess with this set overnight, he just loved the characters. I will give one warning, every single Male (my husband, brother, and Dad), was very bothered by Luigi being the Queen. I don't know why it got to them, but that's all they could talk about. Luigi is the Queen for Mario's side and Baby bowser is the Queen for Bowser's side. Although Princess Peach and Daisy are also pieces they are not the Queens. Anyway, enough with my crazy family. My kids love the set, and they like to play with the characters, and I would recommend this set to a anyone who has a Mario lover.
