Super Mario chess: 1-upmanship?

Get your chess face on with this Super Mario-themed board.

Super Mario Bros. chess
Why is Luigi the queen and not Princess Peach? Think Geek

I've seen more than a few licensed-character editions of chess, but I have to admit, this one is kinda cute.

This chess set, available for $39.99 from Think Geek, features 32 hand-painted characters from the Super Mario Bros. series of video games, with the villains on one side and our heroes on the other.

I don't know that I would get this--not because I don't like it, but because I totally suck at chess. My strategy would consist of jumping the Mario piece around the board, shouting "It's-a meeee, Mario!"

Yeah. Viswanathan Anand really has nothing to worry about.
