For many brands, multi-platform exposure is key to staying relevant, which the Super Mario Bros Classic Monopoly is a clear example of. Utilizing the imagery and themes of the original video game, the board game features an 8-bit aesthetic to merge the two classic games -- Monopoly and Super Mario -- together for players to enjoy.

The board game plays like the traditional Monopoly with players trying to build an empire and save the Mushroom Kingdom from the evil Bowser and his minions. The Super Mario Bros Classic Monopoly is suitable for ages eight and up, and can be played by as few as two players or as many as six. The gameplay lasts for around two hours, but can extend longer in some cases.
