The 'Shroom:Issue 105/Fun Stuff
Hello, this is SMB! I did not direct Fun Stuff this month — Superchao (talk) collected the sections, and Henry Tucayo Clay (talk) formatted them and posted the SOTM — but I am the only one who wrote some notes here. I hope you have a Happy Christmas, a Merry Holidays, and a Merry New Year!

Tropical Freeze Contest
This month, we are having a contest! Henry Tucayo Clay (talk) kindly offered to host Hiding Koopa - Find the Differences!, which is a cross between the two hyphenated sections. Be sure to check the rules in his section below and PM him with your submissions! As per the last contest, there are gift cards to win and Shroom Tokens; so go ahead and see if you can win!
Welcome to Quiz, a place where I... quiz you, on Mario stuff of course though.
- What two things is the Shy Guy Lion a cross between?
- Which Super Smash Bros. game featured Young Link as a playable character?
- What is the objective of the card game Pair-a-Gone?
- What world in Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze is Shipwreck Shore found in?
- Which castle stage in Super Smash Bros. Melee is very similar to one found in Super Smash Bros.?
- What colour is a Mad Pokey?
- What island does Yoshi's Safari take place on?
- What is the name of the mole enemy found in the Tree Zone of Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins?
- Which YouTuber released a parody series called Mario Warfare?
You may recall last month I was considering writing a new section; based on what you all voted, you wanted the "Fan Fiction, by You!" I have not yet had the project green-lighted yet, but I am planning to start February.
Anyhow, it's the holidays, a time to sit back, relax, and take a break from Mario for a while.
Or you could run to GameStop to get Mario ornaments like me:
Well, just like 12 months ago, the theme will be Snow and Ice. Think snow levels, cold enemies, and the like. Pick your level, and get started!
Level 2: Normal
Level 3: Hard
BONUS: What’s the Power-Up?
Well, how did you do? Regardless, thank you for playing Guess Who, where you could just as easily be making Mario snowmen (unless you live in the East Coast like me, where it's 70 degrees for some reason). Well, I hope you learned some things about icy Mario things; I'm sure it's a skill you'll need later in life. Check back in January, and Happy 2016!
Guess That Game!
Think you can solve this month's Guess That Game! puzzle? We have three challenges to solve: the first one is a Mario series video game, the second is a non-Mario Nintendo franchise video game, the third is a non-Nintendo video game. Give it a go!
Challenge 1: Mario Game
- This game barely made it as a 2013 game – at least in the United States.
- The doctors is out... but his brother has stepped in!
- The game was released exclusively for the eShop on Wii U.
Challenge 2: Non-Mario, Nintendo Game
- This game started a new franchise on the Wii U.
- It received high marks from most reviewers.
- The playable characters get inked.
Challenge 3: Non-Nintendo Game
- A series composed of three main entries, released throughout the 1990s.
- Although initially hyped up, the first two games are considered mediocre and the third is critically panned.
- The first games come in a two-fur one package, now that they've been revived by Steam.
Non-Mario, Nintendo Game
That's all for this month! Be sure to check your answers and check back next time!

It's December, a time where people are filled with joy as the holidays approach. However, it's also fairly chilly, so I can only imagine people of any age sitting by the fire sipping a mug of hot chocolate. At least that's what I do. How could anyone resist? To celebrate, this issue's maze is of an Ice Flower. We may not see many trees with leaves, but this flower's pretty cool!
How to Play:
-Copy the image in an art program (such as Paint, Photoshop, paint.net, etc.)
-Click the line tool and adjust the size as needed
-Use the line tool to get from arrow to arrow
-Zoom in and out as needed
