A heap of holiday badges dropped down the Badge Arcade’s chimney this morning! Sticking around all week are appropriately festive themed catchers from the Super Mario Bros., Animal Crossing and Pokémon series. The Snorlax drum and Ponyta rocking horse might just be my personal favorite of the bunch.



Free play: Yes.

I played my drum for Him, Pa rum pum pum pum.



All the non-holiday themed Super Mario Bros. badges are heading back to the Mushroom Kingdom tomorrow! Fortunately, it looks like they’ll be replaced each day with even more Mario mania in celebration of today’s launch of Super Mario Run.


Fans of mustached plumbers will be happy to know that this month’s special theme promotion is still going strong! From now through December 29th at 2:00 a.m. PST, spend just $2 on ten plays to secure this Holiday Super Mario Bros. home theme – perfect for all the snow capped Super Mario Bros. badges on tap for this week.

That’s all for today! Catch you tomorrow!
