The 'Shroom:Issue 123/Fun Stuff
The first issue of the summer is dedicated to all things Wario! Enjoy this issue, surrounding the big man and his love for garlic. Fun Stuff indeed!
I have many announcements this month. Firstly, Mr Squid (talk) will no longer be writing Guess That Game!, one of our most popular sections. We wish him the best of luck! Fortunately, FunkyK38 (talk) has joined the team with a novel new idea for a section. Check out her new article based on the popular television series, Where in the Marioverse is Carmen Sandiego.
Additionally, I am sad to announce that next month will be my last issue directing Fun Stuff. The short explanation is that school will become incredibly busy for me next year, and I would like to prioritize my time to study. As such, I will no longer have time to work efficiently on projects such as the 'Shroom. While this decision was hard to make, I am confident it was the correct choice. My successor has yet to be decided, but I am sure he or she will continue to lead this team as one of the 'Shroom's strongest sections.
Thanks for reading. Time pertaining, you might see something special next issue :)
Section of the Month
Mr Squid (talk) has won SOTM again with a fantastic finale to Guess That Game! Congratulations also to Yoshi876 and Lord Bowser, whose strong sections were very popular last month. Keep up the great work.
Are Lord Bowser's Photoshop skills too high for you to handle?
Welcome to Word Search. This month, for the Wario Special Issue, the Word Search is Wario–related! Have fun!
Hey, you readers, what’s the hot new game that all the kids are talking about? That’s right – NES Soccer –and it just so happens yours truly has written a review on it. So y’all should hop on over to Critic Corner and read that review after you’re done reading this. But I suppose we gotta get this out of they way first, so… did you know?
Hello everyone, and welcome to this month's maze! This month is celebrating everything Wario, and what better way to do that than to have something Wario-related. This month the maze is Wario's glove. Have a maze you'd like me to do? Send me a message on my talk page or message me on the forums and you could be mentioned in next month's edition!
It's Wario time! This special issue is dedicated to the big man himself, and picross is no exception. I've got a heap of puzzles (specifically two) all about him and his games. Enjoy.

Greetings, 'Shroom readers. This is Lord Bowser here with a new edition of Find the Differences for you all!
In the spirit of the Wario theme this month, I'll be using artwork from Wario Land: Shake It! this time around. Here is the original picture...

Where in the Marioverse is Carmen Sandiego?
"Ah, here's our new cadet. Gumshoe, welcome to the Acme Detective Agency! We're glad to have you on board. Recently, we've received word that the infamous femme fatale flicher Carmen Sandiego has had her eye on the treasures of the Marioverse, and we've assigned you to track her down and keep those precious gaming icons safe. It's a tough job, but I know you're up for it! Don't let ACME down!"
"Cadet, we have a big problem! One of Carmen Sandiego's horrible henchmen, Koopa Kon, has made off with a big prize: Wario's secret stash of garlic! The microgame maker is furious about the theft, and he wants us to track down the thief and get back his gigantic garlic haul. You'll find all the information we have about the case in your first clue below. Get to work, gumshoe!"
Because summer is here, I would like to have a theme that celebrates the occasion. You’re probably heading to the beach or the swimming pool. As such, today’s article will deal with aquatic characters, something the Mario series surely does not lack.
This article will be the second to last Guess Who. I’ve been writing this section since 2014, and I cannot believe this era is coming to an end. Look forward to the last issue, which will be very special!
Theme: Aquatic Acquaintances!
Level 1: Easy
Level 2: Medium
How did you do? Regardless, thanks for playing this month's Guess Who. Please join me again in July, where Guess Who will reach its finale!
Howdy 'Shroom readers, and welcome to the Quiz! As you may have figured out from the name, this is a section where I quiz your Mario knowledge. As you may be aware, this issue is themed around the Wario series, and as such, I have devised a Wario series quiz for you to try your hand at.
