Curling Stone
"Used in curling, a sport like bowls but played on ice. You often see people sweeping like bad in front of this thing to make it go further!"
First appearance Paper Mario: Sticker Star (2012)
“It seems increasingly possible that this boulder spontaneously grew a handle out of its side. The wonders of nature are endless and often really weird.”
Sticker Museum plaque, Paper Mario: Sticker Star

The Curling Stone is a Thing in Paper Mario: Sticker Star. It is the third strongest of the ball-based Things and is found at Ice Flow. It slides downs the first ice river indefinitely until Mario picks it up. Once collected, it remains in Mario's Album until it is turned into a sticker at a Sling-a-Thing station. Once it has been used as a sticker, it returns to its original location. It can also be purchased from the Shady Toad for 300 coins and sold as a sticker for 20 coins.

As a sticker, the Curling Stone takes up 1.5×1.5 squares in the Album. When it is used in battle, the battlefield darkens as Mario forms a bowling stance. After he thrusts his arm out, the Curling Stone slides into any onscreen enemies. A graphic displaying the word "WINNER!" appears after it collides with all the enemies. The player can press A Button as Mario thrusts his arm to increase the damage dealt.

The Curling Stone can also be placed into the Sticker Museum as #30, alongside the other ball-based Things.
