The 'Shroom:Issue 132/Fun Stuff
Hello, 'Shroom readers! I bet you weren't expecting to see me here, were you? That's okay, because I wasn't expecting to see me! Lord Bowser (talk) had some last-minute complications come up, so in the grand tradition of the other staff members who've needed it, he handed the keys to me for this month! And just this month, I'll be gone next month. I'm gonna miss the chair, they kept it just like I used to have it back in 2013. I hope you have fun reading Fun Stuff!
Section of the Month
Congratulations to all of our writers for their works!
Le mois passe était terrible pour la cause du séparatisme du Québec. Notre grand et vertueux parti Bloc Québécois a perdu sept sur dix des chaises et notre parti québécois descendait dans les sondages chaque jour. Mais, n'ai pas peur! Le feu de notre cause n'est pas éteint et un jour à l'avenir, le jour que nous voulons, notre beau Québec va séparer du lâche Canada anglais! Nous restons forts.
Hello everyone, and welcome to this month's edition of anagrams! This month I've created a set of anagrams for you with a water theme- so, as a hint, places in or around water and water-based characters. I'm fairly sure we're theme-free next month, so if you have any suggestions for a theme, or have found any funny anagrams, feel free to send me them via my talk page or PM me on the forums. But I'll just let you enjoy the anagrams now- I'm sure you'll have a whale of a time!
How it works...
Basically, this puzzle consists of solving the anagrams. Each month has a specific theme, which will give you a clue about what sort of words or phrases the anagrams will be. I've also included the boxes that the anagrams will fit into, so you'll be able to tell how many words it will solve to be and how many letters will be in each word, which should give you a hand too. You'll also notice that within each set of boxes, one of the squares are yellow. As you solve each anagram, note down the letter which appears in the yellow squares, and if you can solve all of the anagrams, you'll also get a bonus anagram to solve from completing all of the others. I've included the letter configuration for this one at the bottom too, just to give you an extra helping hand. Best of luck!

Oh, hey, Picross is happening! Or rather, it's springing into action! Yes, 5 days after publication, it'll be Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. Or, if you're on the Southern Hemisphere, I guess this is when I Fall short on being accurate--then it'll be your Autumn, or Fall. Also related to time, I had a great time reading the 'Shroom KG! I did participate, but, uh, spoilers if you didn't follow along and/or read the thread--I didn't exactly do good. It sure was fun, though!
But that's time itself! We need Picross time, which according to my metaphorical clock, it's currently RIGHT:NOW in the SPST ('Shroom Picross Standard Time).
Since Spring is just right around the corner (literally! look around the corner of your nearest hardware store! there's likely a spring there!), I wanted to theme this off of two things we associate with Spring, or at least March. I wanted an obvious puzzle, and a St. Patrick's Day puzzle... except there's nothing related to St. Patty's Day in the main series! Seriously, the closest thing was a place in the Super Show. So, I kinda had to go indirect and go with the next best thing: the pots of gold, or more specifically, cash hecking money. But I won't say what type of money. That kinda ruins the surprise!
Rules? On the house! If you want to know how to play, simply take any program you can edit images with (MS paint is... more than an option), or even print it out if you're so inclined, and you can shade in the symbols. As for the rules...
Here come this month's puzzles! Happy Spring, St. Patty's Day, and... Wait, no, I'll wait on that one. I have something quite good in store there. Oh well. Anyhow, puzzles, see you guys next month, same Picross time, same Picross place!

Where in the Marioverse is Carmen Sandiego?
"There's a new case for you to crack, gumshoe. Last night, someone wa-wa-walked away with Waluigi's tennis equipment! All his rackets, his tennis balls, even his visor! Without his lucky gear, Waluigi can't be an ace at tennis, his best sport! And he certainly can't participate in Mario Tennis Aces! We have our eye on Carmen's strongman, Yoshi Yikes! Track that devilish dino down and reclaim that racket!"
Howdy 'Shroom readers, welcome to the Quiz!. As you may have figured out from the name, this is a section where I quiz your Mario knowledge.
I have played and owned a variety of games from the Mario series, but for whatever reason I never seem to actually get the Party games, and I don't just mean the Mario Party series, but I also mean the WarioWare series. My full experience of the series is about two hours that I once spent at a friend's place. But, a new WarioWare game was announced in the last Nintendo Direct, so now seems a reasonably good time to do a quiz on it.
