It's October, which means Halloween is just around the corner. So I have a Jack O' Goomba here for you. It was a struggle trying to carve this intense pumpkin and even more of a challenge to find a Goomba willing to wear the thing. Hopefully you all have a great rest of October!

How to play:

  • Copy the image into 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

Happy anniversary, 'Shroom readers; as of now, I've been writing this section for a year. Looking back, it's nice to see how this section has developed from colored answers to special colored puzzles, so here's to another year of Picross!

So without further ado, this month's theme is...


Now, one other change I've made is that from now on, the answers are only the colored-in versions. I thought that it would be too easy for you to look at the answers and get them given to you 100% complete, so now you can only look at the colored-in answer. It makes it a little more tricky, y'know? And if you want to verify your answer rather than steal it, then sure! The color answers still accurately resemble their black and white counterparts. Enjoy the extra challenge!

You'll need to find a scary character, a location where only the scariest things are, and a game where a character lives his most horrible nightmare. Well, I just gave you some hints, so go ahead and find them all!

Guess Who!

Written by: Andymii (Talk)

Boo CTTT.png

You idiot! Don't you know how to follow instructions? Didn't Guess Who! literally start the exact same way last Halloween?

Well, it’s too bad that you're already this far in. You know how there have been those clown sightings all over the United States? Well, as we speak, an oddly familiar clown has lodged himself in this article somewhere. He paid Guess Who! a visit last year, so I wouldn't be surprised if we see him again.

He doesn't seem to be anywhere yet, though. While you are waiting, why not try to solve this month's questions? (I highly recommend that you check your answers.)

Guess Who! October 2016:
Theme: The Undead

Level 1

  1. This creature is very similar to a Koopa Troopa.
  2. It debuted in Super Mario Bros. 3, where it appeared in castles.
  3. A stomp does not kill it; after a while, the bones miraculously reassemble.

Level 2

  1. You can't jump and nor can they.
  2. These creatures while chase you, although they are incredibly slow, as if they were walking through mud.
  3. Shining a light at them causes them to disappear, but they will soon rematerialize.

Level 3
Artwork of Ghost Goomba, from Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins.

  1. This ghost is always seen with a towel.
  2. He is green, with a nicely combed white mustache.
  3. He is the personal advisor of another ghost that is green.

BONUS: Picture Clues

What's this?

Weegee has decided to become a clown.
"I've been waiting for you!"

Quick! Avert you eyes!
