It's aMAZEing

Written by: Meta Knight (talk)

So it's finally here, a brand new year
If you know that though, you'll be full of cheer
Put your hands together, if you want a maze
As we take you through these monkey days


DK! Donkey Kong!!

He's the leader of the bunch, you know him well
He's finally back to kick some tail
His Coconut Gun can fire in spurts
If he shoots ya, it's gonna hurt
He's bigger, faster, and stronger too
He's the first member of the DK crew

DK! Donkey Kong!
DK! Donkey Kong is here!

DK's got style, he's got the groove
He wears a tie, to make his move
Always looking cool when he needs to be
But here it is for you to see
If you choose to solve, you'll not choose wrong
A sexy tie, from this cool Kong!

DK! Donkey Kong!

He has such style, he has such grace
This Kong's got a cabin place
He can model his tie, when he needs to
But it’s this month's maze, just for you
He won’t be happy, I've scribbled on it
But I’ll show him, who's got more wit

MK! Meta Knight!
MK! Meta Knight is here!

It’s January, we've lost the heat
That doesn’t stop DK, from keepin' the beat
Don’t dare steal, his banana bunch
He’ll hate you and, he'll steal your lunch
He can play the bongos, he'll play a song
But Kremlings beware, when he expands his dong

DK! Donkey Kong!

Finally, let’s end this rap
It's the last bar, of the DK scrap
This Kong's so strong, it isn't funny
Can make a Kremling cry out for mummy
Can pick up a boulder with relative ease
Makes crushing rocks seem such a breeze
He may move slow, he can't jump high
But this Kong's one hell of a guy

C'mon Cranky, take it to the fridge!

Walnuts, peanuts, pineapple smells
Grapes, melons, oranges and coconut shells
Ahh yeah!!

How to Play:

-Copy the image in an art program (such as Paint, Photoshop,, 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

Good luck!


Here are the answers!


Written by: The Pyro Guy (talk)

You know what game I like to play? Pokémon Picross. It's a free-to-play puzzle game where you do picross and collect Pokémon. While your in game currency goes down fast (at 8 picrites a day, it'll be a while 'til I hit 500), it is very fun and charming. One small detail I did pick up was that the picross actually colours itself in as you complete it. Amazing! So from that, I've decided to advance my puzzles further by providing a coloured answer alongside the original answer; however, I didn't manage to find any small monster things that cheat to help you (seriously, one Pokémon fills in 49 squares for you), but you know what I say to cheaters? Uh... never mind. Cheat if you want to.

For an explanation on how to play, see here. This time, the theme is;


That's right! Even though the ballot crushed my dreams (and possibly even yours) I've decided to create some picture puzzles based on this amazing series.

now to find some more copies of bayonetta to destroy...

Hah, just kidding. Maybe.

Your worst nightmare.

Did you get them right? Hopefully! I'll see you all next month, with the theme of Wario! Don't worry Wario haters, I'll prepare something you'll enjoy. Goodbye!

Guess Who!

Written by: Andymii (talk)

Happy New Year! Don't get trampled.
Happy New Year! Don't get trampled.

Welcome to the first "Guess Who" of 2016!

I would like to start off with saying that my new section, "Silly Stories, By You!," has been green-lighted (yes, I had a minor title change). Thank you for voting! It's a project I've been planning for a while, and I can finally do it. To help kick the project off, please down to the section below and answer some basic questions as silly as possible. The article will be ready by February. I'll try to keep writing "Guess Who" for the time being, in case something doesn't work out.

But anyway, now that it's a new year, let's reflect on everything that was released in 2015, so that means today's theme is, well, 2015. Any character that played a major role in a Mario game released in 2015 is eligible, so if you've continued to play Mario throughout the year, you should enjoy this!

Guess Who! January 2016
Theme: 2015 In Review

Level 1: Easy

  1. This character originally starred in a minigame from Super Mario 3D World.
  2. He lacks the ability to jump because his backpack is so heavy, meaning he lacks the intelligence to TAKE THE THING OFF. C'mon.
  3. His game was released in Japan and the United States in 2014, but is eligible for this theme because it was released in other territories in 2015.

Level 2: Normal

Ice Flower
  1. This character (whom you probably know) got his own game mode.
  2. Whomever plays as him has the ability to crush other players, put them in an electric hamster wheel, and more fun stuff.
  3. Did I mention that he always wins?

Level 3: Hard

  1. He's being ridden on in the cover art of a game that took forever to hit the United States.
  2. Though he's not the star of the game, he appears as a major ally.
  3. He has large, orange lips and a long, red tongue.

BONUS: What's the Elusive Game?

  1. This game is a first-person rail shooter.
  2. It was only released in Japan, and developed by Sega and Capcom.
  3. Check your local D&B if it's there yet.


Easy: Captain Toad!

Normal: Bowser! Seriously, if can't beat Bowser Party mode as Bowser, then you're not very good.

Hard: Poochy! (Next person who says they worship Poochy gets thrown in a pit of starving, bloodthirsty puppies.)

BONUS: What’s the Elusive Game?: Luigi Mansion Arcade! (It’s currently being tested at Dave & Busters.)

  5. That Bullies were originally going to be in Super Mario Galaxy?
  6. That Mario Party 4 was the first Mario Party game to take place in an actual party?
