Nintendo Winter Game Stages Fun Trivia Quiz is a skill quiz on the Play Nintendo website. In this winter-themed quiz, the player has to answer a number of trivia questions about various Nintendo 3DS games.

Overview[edit]

The player has a total of six questions to answer. Each question gives the player four answers to choose from, with only one of them being the correct answer. When clicked on, the player must select "Check answer" to see if they are correct. If the player answers correctly, the item they selected will be highlighted green. If the player answers incorrectly, the item they selected will be highlighted red and the correct answer will be both written in the results area and highlighted green.

The player can then choose to either take the quiz again or take a different quiz on the website.

    • Penguins
      • Right: N(ice) job! The Rosalina’s Ice World course is full of wintery woes, but the Penguins are the absolute worst.

Along with ice blocks and icicles, Penguins make this Special Cup course one of the more challenging tracks in the Mario Kart 7 game.
      • Wrong: Nope, but n(ice) try. The Rosalina’s Ice World course is full of wintery woes, but the Penguins are the absolute worst.

    • Fuzzies
    • Goombas
    • Boos
    • Thwomps
      • Right: Excellent—It’s bad enough that you have to walk on tightropes to cross over icy ravines in World 3-4 from the Super Mario 3D Land game. But adding Fuzzies to the mix? Talk about tough!

    • Offer him 10 Diamonds
    • Throw Bombs at him
    • Give him a Heart
    • Hit him with Gold Bones
      • Right: Got it! There’s only one way to take down the Shrewd Possessor, and that’s with Bombs. In this boss battle from the Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon game, you have to use bombs to break the Shrewd Possessor’s ice shields.
