Shogi is a board game steep with ancient Japanese tradition, dating all the way back to the 16th century. Heck, there’s a good chance if you’ve ever seen a samurai flick, you might have seen it being played. And recently, it just received an amusing,  facelift taken from a more modern Japanese invention, the Nintendo Game Boy.

Japanese gaming outfitters, den, created this unique version of Shogi that uses miniature Nintendo Game Boy as game board pieces. Printed on every individual Game Boy’s screen is the Japanese characters that identify which piece is which too, a rather cute touch that represents the amount of craftsmanship that went into its making – and – it’s outstanding $1200 price tag.

Realistically, these are wood-based pieces, so the high quality certainly accounts for the high price. And, it’s beautiful to boot. The kind of item I could have sitting on a coffee table in my imaginary million-dollar mansion. Unfortunately, the Game Boy themed Shogi board is currently sold out, so my imaginary mansion will sadly go without it. Dang, what a shame.
