The board (quartered) and all pieces come in a metal box (pictured). My only minor complaint is that the pieces are housed in cheap black plastic that feels a little flimsy (though that's hardly a huge deal if you're careful).
The pieces themselves are well painted, with obvious attention paid to the small details (i.e., Bowser's spikes). The colors are vibrant (as any Mario themed item should be!). The set could easily be a display piece (my husband collects Mario products so that's what we've done with it). Mario and Bowser are the king pieces on their respective teams, while Luigi and Bowser Jr. serve as the queens (no, I don't understand why either).
Overall I'd highly recommend this to any Mario fan who might want to learn how to play chess. Or perhaps someone extra competitive who wants to stab their opponent in the eye with their king piece (Bowser is certainly capable of this).
During my visit, he begged for challengers from both his siblings, his parents, and myself. I played two games with him, and his father requested that he take my place for regular games with his son when I'm gone. This is a first for these two, to my knowledge, and I'm excited that they could find something in common to enjoy together!
The rubber pieces themselves are very cute and easy-to-stand in their positions on the board. The only placement issues come from when you have two large pieces next to each other, impending in each other's space slightly. My cousin and I solved this dilemma by doing a little role-play mini-battle until one of them moved--think Princess Peach and Birda having a slapping contest. It was very silly, but added an element of fun that chess normally lacked.
Minor issues: My cousin did note that they painted Bowser incorrectly, having Luigi as the Queen piece while Princess Daisy and Princess Peach were bishops was initially confusing, and we both struggled at first with getting the coin pawn pieces back into their correct positions in the plastic storing case.
However, the minor issues were very minor, and overall we loved this game!
We were very happy with the quality of the set and the artwork. The characters are clearly recognizable and not knockoffs. The plastic construction is sturdy as well.
The pieces are clearly labeled on the back as to which Chess piece they represent, which is very important because they shapes are not traditional and even the genders are not a clue (both Queen pieces are male).
If you have someone who likes video games and chess, this is perfect.
