Staff Notes

Written by: Lord Bowser (talk)

Octo Expansion is a good DLC for Splatoon 2 and everyone should buy it because it's good and fun and challenging also the Octoling girl looks cute and the Octoling boy looks extremely gay but that's okay because it's Pride Month and he should be proud you go you gay Octoboy just like our gay idol Luigi and that's how we can relate this rambling to our Summer Special theme !!!!!!!!!!

So, yeah, it's time to celebrate Luigi! He barely got into Smash Ultimate it seems, so congrats to him! A bit of sad news for those of us at Fun Stuff, though, as Shoey is retiring from Trivia, but some happier news as LudwigVon (talk) gives us a special Mystery Images section for this issue!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy our Luigi-themed sections all across the paper!

Section of the Month

Congratulations to all of our writers for their works!

Anagrams

Written by: BBQ Turtle (talk)

Because of course they had to do a Luigi special issue just four months after I already did a Luigi anagram section, absolutely HILARIOUS. I'm almost sure they just did that just to annoy me... Well, all that aside, welcome to this month's issue of Anagrams! Now, seeing as I did a Luigi themed anagram section four months ago (You can check it out here if you love nothing more than Luigi-themed anagrams), I've decided to do a bunch of Luigi's Mansion themed ones for you instead and you watch, October's issue is just gonna be Luigi's Mansion themed because that's also hilarious. Anyway, have fun with these ones, and as per usual, if you have any suggestions that aren't the theme for the issue coming up in four issues time or funny anagrams that also aren't related to said theme either let me know on my talk page or PM me on the forums.

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!

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

Clean up this case!

"New developments, gumshoe! It seems that Carmen has sent out one of her henchmen to nab a signature item off of Luigi- his Poultergust 3000! First featured in Luigi's Mansion, this vacuum cleaner has the power to suck up the supernatural and trap ghosts in its dust chamber. It was invented by Professor E. Gadd, and it's invaluable to Luigi while he's out hunting ghosts. He'll never be able to hunt them down until you track down that vacuum! We've narrowed our list of suspects down to Carmen's ghoulish henchman, Boo the Bold, so grab your Dual Scream and get to it! "

"Excellent work, gumshoe! We followed your instructions and found the missing vacuum, and we used it to suck up the crook! Professor E. Gadd can make plenty of time to study him in greater detail. Perhaps he'll even tell us more about Carmen's whereabouts! Luigi has you to thank, and he is thankful! You've given him the courage and the tools to get back to hunting ghosts again. Good job! Keep up the good work, gumshoe, Carmen is so close to coming down!"

Should I go with a Smash Bros. or Mario Party one as new entries in their respective series were announced? Or should I go with a tennis themed quiz due to the imminent release of Mario Tennis Aces?
