Super Mario Chess: Collector's Edition is a chess set themed to the Super Mario franchise. The set was released by USAopoly in September 2009. The rules of the game are the same as defined by the original game, with one side being white (heroes) and the other being black (villains). It is sold for about $20 in most American retailers.

Chess pieces[edit]

There are 32 hand-painted characters and items taking the place of the various pieces. Each piece is labeled as to what standard chess piece it represents. The pieces measure three inches tall by 1.1 inches wide by 1.1 inches long.





  • Luigi and Daisy are modeled after their three-inch figurines, and Toad is modeled after his 10-inch figurine, while Bowser and the Magikoopas are modeled after their official Super Mario Galaxy artwork.
  • Luigi's overalls are lighter than Mario's, unlike most appearances where they are either the same shade or darker.
