As far as gamer art goes, Etsy merchant James Bit's Super Mario Spade Panel Prints are about as creative as they come. This work of art is an homage to the spade panel mini game in Super Mario Bros. 3. In the game, matching the panels to form the correct figure would give Mario an extra life. There are nine panels in total with three shapes that can be made.
Even if you haven't played Super Mario Bros. 3, chances are you know what at least one of these symbols represents. There is a growth mushroom, what looks to be an ice flower and an invincibility star. Each of the nine Super Mario Spade Panel Prints can be rearranged to your liking, effectively letting you play the mini game in real life! The set sells for $200 and is available now.
