A new Nintendo-branded board game has been announced: The Game of Life: Super Mario Edition. The board game is available now and lets two-to-four players journey through the Mushroom Kingdom as Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Yoshi.

The Game of Life: Super Mario Edition shares the same wheel spin mechanic as the regular Game of Life, but that’s where the similarities stop. Instead of the game being about getting a job, getting married, having kids, and retiring, it is about gathering enough stars and power-ups to beat Bowser as a final boss. Players will battle each other in small mini-games like Rock, Paper, Scissors and Thumb Wars in order to win coins, which can be used to buy stars.

The stars give players one additional point on top of their spin total when facing off against Bowser at the end of the game. Players need to spin higher than a 12 in order to defeat Bowser and to win the game.

The Game of Life: Super Mario Edition is available from Target for $29 USD, however; it is sold out at this time. There have been other Nintendo-branded board games recently, including the Animal Crossing: New Horizons version of Monopoly released last month.
