Official Super Mario Board Games

Here are all the Official Super Mario board games that you can purchase from the UK. There's all sorts of crazy games that you can have imported from Japan, but for now, here's an awesome selection of easily attainable board games for rainy days, for during power cuts, for Christmas Day, or for when your kids have spent far too long staring at the TV! These are fantastic presents for children but also for adults looking to add something special to their Mario merchandise collection.

This awesome Super Mario Monopoly board has just become available on Amazon. It's so cool, it even has coins instead of paper money. We've ordered it for Christmas, hope it's good.

Super Mario Monopoly - around £30 on Amazon

We bought this Mario Chess set for our 4 year old song for Christmas. And although he can't get his head around the rules of chess, he loves inventing his own role playing games with the pieces, which are, by the way, of excellent quality. I really recommend splashing out on this one.
Super Mario Chess Set - £37.48 from Amazon
This Super Mario Draughts and Naughts & Crosses set is just as good as the chess set. The cutest thing about it is the little Mario and Luigi "King hats". The tin is a really lovely collectors item.

Super Mario Draughts + Naughts & Crosses - £26.99 from Amazon
The Super Mario Memory Game is a great choice for our younger fans. It includes 52 character cards and 20 item cards with "Power-Up" play! The cards are good quality and are nice a thick. Looks fun!

Super Mario Yahztee?! You really can get anything these days. Featuring the well known Question Mark block cube as the cup shaker, these smart little dice feature the Mario power-ups.
Super Mario Yahtzee £27.99 from Amazon
Of course, there would have to be a Nintendo edition of Monopoly. If you live in an area with lots of power-cuts, then this is definitely the game for you! It even features a 60 minute speed play option!
Nintendo Monopoly £35.42 from Amazon
Super Mario Connect 4... they really have thought of everything. An intense game of logic, skill & an immense amount of sibling rivalry! This game is quite rare in the UK so often comes at a hefty price.

Super Mario Printable Coupon Book Gift

These kids chore/reward coupons are such a great idea. The idea is, that the child gives it to their parent as a gift, then the parent can use the coupons as incentives for the child to help out around the house, or simply to "eat my veggies"!! I love it! I could probably get my son to do all of these things simply because the coupons are Mario themed!!

Minecraft Birthday Party Ideas

Below are loads of ideas for hosting a fabulous Minecraft themed birthday party! Including games, activities and decorations.

Super Mario Scavenger Hunt with Downloads

For my son's birthday party I designed this Super Mario "Captain Toad's Treasure Tracker" scavenger hunt game. I've made some PDF's so that you can download and print your own Mario-themed scavenger hunt below.

Instructions: First, print off and cut out all of the clues to hide around your party venue (go easy on little kids - make it harder for older kids!) I laminated them on brightly coloured card to make it easy for my 5-year olds. Next, print off a clue sheet for each child and give them a pencil. The children manically run around (to Mario themed music!) and tick off all of the clues as they find them. The winner is the first to find all of the clues. I gave the winner 10 gold chocolate coins. Click on the images below to download the PDF's:

Super Mario Homemade Party Bags

Super Mario birthday party homemade party bags! I just used plain brown paper lunch bags from Home Bargains, alphabet stickers that I found in my local post office, then I printed off a variety of Mario mushrooms; including 1-Up mushrooms, Power-Up mushrooms, Invincible mushrooms etc. and used a different one on each bag. Really cheap and simple but very effective. You can download the mushrooms that I used by clicking the image below to download the PDF:

Mario Mushroom Party Skewers

Super Mario Birthday Party Mushrooms
Here's my idea for a simple Mario-themed treat for your Mario birthday party (a great alternative for those kids with egg and gluten allergies too!). All you need is:

Kebab skewers
White chocolate
Piping bag
Baking potato
Tin foil

To make the stand, cut the baking potato in half, and cover with tin foil. You can then poke each mushroom skewer into it so that they stand upright.

Carefully pull the leafy ends off the strawberries. Put a marshmallow, followed by an upside down strawberry, onto the end of each skewer. Melt a little white chocolate and pour it into a piping bag with small nozzle. Pipe dots of chocolate all over each strawberry. And there you have it.

Super Mario Chocolate Mustaches

I made these for my son's Super Mario birthday party and they gave every child (and adult) such a giggle. I bought the silicone mold from Amazon, the paper lollipop sticks you can get from almost any supermarket, pound shop, or craft shop. I just used cheap milk chocolate, melted it, poured it into the molds (making sure to give it a good tap to get rid of air bubbles), then left in the fridge to set. Easy. Another idea for an awesome Mario themed birthday party.
