    Have you ever wondered how much a gold coin in the Mario universe is worth? I have! People like to joke in Super Mario Maker that the coins are worthless and it got me thinking what things like Princess Peach's Castle would cost to make. Today Theorists, I've got a real bombshell to drop about the dark side of the Mushroom Kingdom. From horribly underpaid Toads to extremely dangerous castle construction - this will blow your mind!

        I haven't seen anyone else suggest it, so:
        Maybe glass is MUCH more expensive in the Mushroom Kingdom than in real life, leading to a change in supply and demand. During the middle ages, the glass panes were expensive and could easily exceed 50% of the total construction cost of cathedrals, churches, and palaces with large windows; and proportionally, Peach's Castles have pretty large windows, while no other building seems to have glass panes _at all_.
        Over all, the construction methods shown look very much like those used during the 1500's on works such as castles and cathedrals. However, many castles built during the middle ages did use indentured and conscripted labor, where working conditions were abyssal and a significant fraction of workers died horrific deaths from falling, being crushed under machinery and materials, or torn apart by gears. This would make the relative cost much more reasonable, but the Mushroom Kingdom is probably still a despotic slave economy in desperate need for glorious revolution, or external intervention and liberation.

                                            you can cut the video's time in half by concluding that due to such a drastically different economy, construction might be much cheaper. Prices are based on so many things and they change so easily over time, it would take like years to study the economics of Mario games, how the currency changes over time (like how the average coin was $1.66 in mario rpg) and calculating that.
                                            but this version is more entertaining so it's fine

                                                      But you said that gold coins is common in the mushroom kingdom which means that its easier to make and earn money, so i think that the products used to build the castle is cheaper in real life but has the same quality

                                                                                      Are you also getting your daily dose of brain melting mathematics while you try and keep up with the insanity that is game theory then realising that he has 2 other channels and one of them being dedicated to live streams that take 1-2 hours per stream and the other littered with spoilers for movies/TV shows well if you are then go ahead and stop reading this since you really need to catch up so I'll never see you again bye :) Yo this took 6 mins to write what am I doing with my life???

                                                                                      • Friendly Neighborhood Asexual

                                                                                        I’ve never played the story mode for Mario Maker 2 so I don’t know the details.
                                                                                        Maybe the building costs were already paid for, but the cost of certain materials (i.e. the bricks for the walls) went up so Toadette needed Mario to go and get more money to cover the newly heightened cost. That could be why Mario doesn’t need to collect very much (relative to what he’s paying for).
                                                                                        Just an idea though. Like I said, I don’t know all of the details.

                                                                                        There’s no doubt that Toadette is an irresponsible and negligent chief though.

They run them into the ground with their incompetence. It’s a man’s world. Women need to stay at home to cook and sew and wear dresses. That is where they belong.
