As part of the franchise’s 35th anniversary, Nintendo and Hasbro have joined forces to produce two new special edition Monopoly and Jenga games inspired by Super Mario. Although Mario-themed versions of Monopoly have existed for years, this Celebration edition utilizes hallmarks of the Mushroom Kingdom for its locations and items. The board begins with World 1-1 and ends with Bowser’s Kingdom, which has replaced Boardwalk. Player icons are based on items like Yoshi eggs, Super Stars, and Koopa Shells. Toad homes replace normal houses, while castles replace hotels. Lastly, the Chance card and money are replaced with Question Blocks and coins, respectively.

Meanwhile, the new Jenga Super Mario utilizes four players (Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad) on a block-stacking quest to slay Bowser. The four characters have their own pegs that slot into the sides of the bricks to indicate who reaches the top first. Each turn begins with a spin, which directs players to remove blocks like traditional Jenda, to receive coin rewards, or to move further up and down the tower.

The Super Mario Celebration edition of Monopoly is available for $30 USD, while the Jenga Super Mario edition goes for $20 USD. Both games are expected to arrive on August 1.
