How much would Bowser's castle cost?

The other day while kicking about our faux-hipster’s pad we went to our sock draw and matched up all 20-odd pairs of socks. After thinking about creating some bleeding-edge art installation with the results we mused about what can be done given enough time and inclination.

And while our sock endeavour hardly equates to British mountaineer George Mallory climbing Everest because ‘it’s there’, we like to think it’s in the same ballpark as this infographic breaking down the cost and appearance of Bowser’s Castle.

American estate agent, sorry, real estate broker, Movoto Real Estate, with a similar ‘why not?’ philosophy, has taken it upon itself to do the tricky equations based upon Mario and Bowser’s height, the amount of bricks needed, the depth etc etc.

What they have discovered is this: Bowser’s Castle would stand an impressive 212 storeys high (compared to the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, which comes in at 160 stories) and it would cost a not unreasonable $455,000 (£286,000) on today’s market.

Confused? Let the infographic explain all…
