The 'Shroom:Issue 108/Fun Stuff
It's March, the start of the season of sniffles and stuffy noses (at least in the United States). Quite a depressing time indeed. Luckily, you've got Fun Stuff to cheer you up!
With a maze of the lovable Yoshi, multiple Paper Mario-themed Picrosses, multiple Paper Mario-themed Guess Who! questions, a MARCHing-themed quiz (oh dear), and Donald Trump's opinion on Hotel Mario, there's enough activities to cure your springtime woes.
Section of the Month
In 1991, Super Mario World was released in the US. One of my favorite characters made his debut in this game, and this month I'd like to do a maze for him. I can't believe he's been around for 25 years! So this character is the maze. Please welcome the magnificent Yoshi! Ever since I first saw him, I instantly liked him. This dino dude has become very popular, and it's too bad that he wasn't playable in Super Mario 3D World.

Good day, 'Shroom readers. I believe I have a sincere apology to make; I completely butchered the anniversary dates last issue. Not only did I say that Pokémon turned 25, but that The Legend of Zelda also turned 25. I am so very sorry. ('n')
But other than that, welcome to my seventh issue of Picross! I've been spewing these puzzles out like mad this month, but most of them burnt in an unrelated, natural fireexplosion, so here's two pieces for you, from me! As promised, the theme is:
Yeah, Color Splash happened. Speaking of color, next month's theme just might be Mario Paint. See you next time!
Welcome to Quiz, a place where I... quiz you on Mario stuff. Now, seeing as this month is March, I have given the Quiz a "marching" theme- well, actually, it's just a Mario vs. Donkey Kong theme- but those games contain a lot of marching.
Have an idea for a theme? Suggest it here!
Paper Mario: Color Splash has been announced, and it's time for me to get distracted and give a brief commentary.
My distaste for Pokémon has the side effect of making be hate turn-based combat, so Paper Mario was never really my thing. It was plenty of fun to watch, though; the N64 and Wii versions had fantastic stories that were great even for an observer (I've never played Thousand Year Door). Partners were a great idea, and I always enjoyed the humor. The turn-based combat wasn't even as tedious as other games, and was mildly entertaining, even for me to watch.
Of course, Sticker Star removed all this and left a generic turn-based game with no real storyline, which is something that I hate. Why they removed partners is beyond me, and it doesn't look like they're coming back.
Considering Paper Mario may never be the same, let's celebrate the series as it was with a Paper Mario-themed issue. Partners, teammates, that random Toad behind the tree- they're all valid choices for today's questions. Get ready to start guessing!
Well, how did you do? Regardless, thank you for playing Guess Who, and please check back next month with a new theme!
