In addition to The Game of Life: Super Mario Edition, Hasbro previously partnered with Nintendo last year for Jenga: Super Mario and Monopoly Super Mario. The options to play with Mario in board game or tabletop format are myriad at this point.
Meanwhile, the options to play board games digitally on Nintendo Switch are considerable as well. The Game of Life 2 came to Switch back in March, for instance, and there is the unique Evolution Board Game from last December, which captures the process of survival and evolution. And then there is the total mack daddy of tabletop experiences on Nintendo Switch, Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics, which should basically be a non-optional purchase for Switch owners everywhere. If you feel like something is missing in your life and you don’t own that game, you should really put two and two together.
But yes, if you want a new physical board game in your life, The Game of Life: Super Mario Edition from Hasbro and Nintendo has you covered now.
