Hasbro has a brand new edition of  The Game Of Life on the way as Nintendo fans will get a dose of Super Mario for this edition. As you can see from the images we have here, you'll be roaming through the Mushroom Kingdom as one of four friendly faces from the franchise as you make your way from one end of the kingdom to Bowser's castle. Along the way, you'll be entering different iconic worlds from the series that have different impacts on the characters and what they collect as you make your way around the board. It's a cool edition of the game that a lot of gamers will enjoy as they get another piece of nostalgia added to an old-school board game. We'll see how well it does compared to other Super Mario-themed items that have been released lately. The game is for players ages 8+ for 2-4 players and sells for $30 at most retailers.

In The Game of Life: Super Mario Edition board game, players choose to play as Mario, Luigi, Peach, or Yoshi, journeying through the Mushroom Kingdom, and finally spinning to win in a battle against Bowser! They move around the looping paths of the gameboard as they collect coins, power up with items and Companions, and play fun minigames along the way such as Rock Paper Scissors, Thumb Wars, and Spin-Offs.  As they approach Bowser's Castle, players will also buy stars to boost their battle-spin; each star collected adds 1 point to their spin total, and players will need to spin higher than a 12 to defeat Bowser and win the game.
