There have been a couple different Super Mario board games released since the ’80s and ’90s. This particular game was released by Milton Bradley in 1988. Players advance through a series of 4 worlds to eventually reach the final castle and save Princess Peach. There are also cards to use against opponents like fireballs, Goombas, and other similar resources. The game is fun and it’s pretty classic in regards to the Super Mario video game series.
I’m not a big fan of board games. I’ll play a board game if its on a console or my phone, but somehow the fun of an analog version escapes me. But the fact that we live in a digital age did not stop Japanese game maker Epoch from unveiling a Super Mario Bros and a Super Mario Kart board game at the Tokyo Toy Show.
