Super Mario: are you having fun with it?

By all accounts the recently released Super Mario sets appear to be very popular. From what I hear they were flying off the shelves in brand stores at the beginning of the month, they are all on back order at LEGO.com in the USA and some of the large sets are out of stock at LEGO.com in Europe, too.

I thought I had better find out what the fuss is about, so I bought 71360 Adventures with Mario. CapnRex101 reviewed it a few months ago and while it's a great review, it's hard to get a feel for the gameplay aspect -- the set's raison d'être -- without trying it for yourself.

Essentially, from what I can work out, the object of the game is to collect as many coins as possible in 60 seconds. There are various ways of accumulating them, from stomping on enemies to floating around on a cloud. The challenge seems to be to create a course with the maximum coin-collecting potential and, presumably, buying expansion sets provides more varied ways to do so.

However, I'm struggling to see the point of it. I can't say I've found it particularly entertaining, enjoyable or compelling. That could well be because I'm not exactly the target audience, being neither a child, nor a fan of Super Mario.

So, I'd like to know: what am I missing? Are you enjoying it? Does having expansion sets make it more fun? Or, are you finding that the novelty wears off quickly? If you are having fun with it, perhaps you could explain what you like about it and why I should persevere with it.

We are not intending to review the expansion sets individually but might take a look at the friends and foes within them, and perhaps point out which ones are the best to buy. Let us know what you'd like us to do.
