The 'Shroom:Issue 125/Fun Stuff
Wow. I disappear for a month and come back as a director. I should disappear more often!
Anyway, hi! I'm Lord Bowser, your new Fun Stuff director. You've probably seen me around before almost anywhere in The 'Shroom, but if not, nice to meet you! First off, I'd like to thank Andymii (talk) for his contributions to Fun Stuff. He was a great director for the team, and I'll be sure to try to carry on his legacy the best that I can. I'd also like to thank the core 'Shroom staff for their support of my application, as well as Gabumon (talk) for this gorgeous staff portrait; I will make sure to be as good a staff member I can be in return!
Sappiness over, there's one huge new thing this month!... besides me. Fun Stuff, along with some of our other teams, has a new banner! Courtesy of our own Hypnotoad (talk), I must say, it looks beautiful. These banners debuted in his presentation for Favorite 'Shroom Team; make sure to check it out, along with the rest of our ceremony if you haven't already!
Unfortunately, we also lose a section this month; LudwigVon has resigned from Word Search due to time constraints, but don't worry! He'll still be here to provide us with Mystery Images. Remember that if you want to take up Word Search in his place, or take up any 'Shroom section, you should check out our sign up page for more info!
And with those awfully long staff notes, I hope you enjoy this new era of Fun Stuff. This is a new and exciting experience for me, and I can't wait to see how we'll all do in the future! Thanks for supporting Fun Stuff for so long. :)
Section of the Month
Andymii takes a very much well-deserved win this month; 39 votes to Guess Who!, the most I've ever seen go to a single section! It's amazing to see so much support for a fan-favorite section, and I wish the best of luck to anyone who decides to take it up in his place. Congratulations as well to Meta Knight, whose It's aMAZEing section will be dearly missed, and FunkyK38 for her top-quality works as well!
It's summertime. Well, it has been summer for a few months now, but I never had the chance to make a picross about it until now. So, you know the drill; sit back and relax in the sun... while doing picrosses.

Find the Differences
Greetings, 'Shroom readers! This is Lord Bowser, returning with Find the Differences this month! Apologies for my absence last issue; I had a lot of responsibilities I needed to take care of last month, which didn't leave me with enough time to work on my 'Shroom articles. But no matter; all is well now!
This month's featured picture is artwork from New Super Mario Bros. Here is the original picture...

Thanks for playing! Come again next month for more puzzles.
Where in the Marioverse is Carmen Sandiego?
"Terrible news, Gumshoe, the ACME office vacation has been cancelled! Princess Daisy's cruise ship has been stolen by one of Carmen's larcenous ladies, the Cheep-Cheep Crook! Princess Daisy is furious- Peach can't hold her back for long, so go find that stolen ship, gumshoe! The princesses and everyone in the office is counting on you!"
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're probably aware, we have a new Fun Stuff director, Lord Bowser (talk), so I figured this would be as good a time as any to have a Bowser quiz. Plus, it's Summer over here, and Bowser likes fire, so there's a tenuous link to the seasons as well.
