Map nerds can now add a whole new dimension to their dorkdom with these Super Mario Bros. 3-themed metro maps from self-proclaimed “geek designer” Dave Delisle, Lifehacker reports.

Delisle has recreated 10 city maps in the style of the video game: Atlanta, Calgary, Montreal, Ottawa, Pittsburgh, Portland, San Francisco, Toronto, Vancouver, and Washington D.C. The San Francisco edition deviates slightly from the theme, but the leap is all too logical: the Super Mario Kart-styled map is called “MARIOBART.” (The Bay Area Rapid Transit system is referred to as BART.)

Some of the maps are even animated—a design element that might not make it onto your wall, but can be enjoyed via Delisle’s website. The posters can be purchased through Amazon.

As Lifehacker points out, a lot of major cities are missing, but we’ll echo their hope that with some attention and sales, more might be yet to come. You can also enjoy a number of other miscellanea on his site, like the Ron Swanson Pyramid of Greatness, a Ghostbusters Firehouse Papercraft model, and a Jabba the Hutt Necklace.
