Mikey should've won the Splatfest ok

Anyway, not much to say this month. Summer is almost here, though, which also means the Summer Special Issue is almost here! Be ready for heaps of Luigi-related content next month, which Fun Stuff will be sure to participate in!

Camwood and Shoey were both unfortunately absent this month, so this edition is smaller than usual, but I hope you enjoy all we have to offer regardless!

Section of the Month

Congratulations to all of our writers for their works!

Anagrams

Written by: BBQ Turtle (talk)

Hello everyone, I hope you're all having a good May! This month, I've decided to make you a banana bunch of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze themed anagrams to celebrate the release of the Nintendo Switch version. Next month's issue will be Luigi themed, and I've got something in mind for then, but still feel free to send me any themes for anagrams you'd like to see in a future edition or any funny anagrams you've found on my talk page or PM me on the forums. Well, let's get to the anagrams!

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!

This is my eighth maze, so why not take an enemy that originates in the 8-bit era? Today's maze features a Para-Beetle, debuting in Super Mario Bros. 3.

Do you have an idea for a maze you'd like to see? Leave a message on my talkpage or find me on the forums and send me a personal message, and your idea and name may be featured in a future episode!

How to play:

  • Copy the image into your favourite art program (like Paint, Photoshop, GIMP, etc.)
  • Click the line, pencil or brush tool and adjust the size as needed
  • Draw your line though the maze from start to finish
  • Zoom in and out as needed

Alternatively, print it out and use a pencil!

Where in the Marioverse is Carmen Sandiego?

Written by: FunkyK38 (talk)

HOW TO PLAY

Each issue, you will be given a case to solve and clues to use to help you find the solution! Use your Mario knowledge to crack the case!

You will begin each case at the scene of the crime, and you will be given three clues from passerby as to where the next hot spot is and what game it’s from. Using your knowledge of Mario games and the Super Mario Wiki, figure out where the crook is and go track them down! There are four locations each round: the crime scene (1) at the start, two locations (2 and 3) with clues, and the hideout for the crook of the month (4). Answers for locations will be given with the corresponding round, for example, the clues from the crime scene will lead you to location 2, and once you open the spoiler bubbles for location 2, you will be given the correct answer. You can open the clues for each location in any order you’d like, but be careful! You may encounter an incorrect clue that could throw you off the case!

Clues offered will give you a hint either about the next location or the game it’s in. Unlike a regular Carmen Sandiego game, you do not have to collect information about the crook you are tracking down.

Challenge round (optional):

-Find all locations and games correctly in two minutes or less

-Find all locations and games correctly without using the rest of the Wiki for help

Round up that missing Rabbid!

"We've got big news, gumshoe! Carmen has been spotted in the Mushroom Kingdom, and you won't believe what she's done this time. The tricky vixen has rabbid-napped Spawny! Yes, the cute little guy with the power to fuse items together, most notably, Rabbids! Using his powers, who knows what kind of havoc she could create? You've got to get Spawny back, cadet, the Mushroom Kingdom is counting on you!"

She's a tricky one, all right. We'll be keeping our eyes out for her, gumshoe, so you'll get another crack at taking her down. Good work, and be on your toes for your next case! "
