If you like chess but you’re more into video games, perhaps a blend of the two would suit your sensibilities. 

Super Mario Chess fits the bill perfectly, and it’s enough to delight any Nintendo fan. 

The collector’s set is packed with playing pieces in the form of all your favorite characters (some of them are even coins). It will make setting up a game of chess a real pleasure.

Currently on sale at Amazon for $42.50, and Prime-eligible, so you may get it before Christmas. That’ll give you to something fun to do while you wait for the big dinner to be ready, won’t it?

Buy it here.
