Staff Notes

Written by: Lord Bowser (talk)

Well, it had to come eventually. Today I make official my decision to step down as Fun Stuff director, and this is my second-to-last issue before my replacement comes in. It was a tough one to make, but one I feel would ultimately benefit me and the paper in the long run, before I run myself into the ground and inadvertently hurt Fun Stuff doing so.

I might not have lasted too long, only about a year, but it's been a lot of fun being part of the core team. I learned a whole lot about the 'Shroom that I didn't know of before, got to participate a lot of key staff decisions, run a couple of small-scale contests, and generally just enjoy it all for a while. All good things have to come to an end eventually though, and now is appropriate for mine.

Public applications for my post, along with Strategy Wing's post, will go up soon after the paper gets published. I wish the best of luck to anyone and everyone who applies for these positions! But for now, enjoy this issue of Fun Stuff!

Anagrams

Written by: BBQ Turtle (talk)

Hello again everyone, and welcome to this month's edition of anagrams! I hope you all enjoyed this year's awards ceremonies! Anyway, this month I've decided to make you a bunch of Wario-related anagrams as WarioWare Gold was released a few weeks ago, but I don't know an awful lot about the WarioWare series. Anyway, as per usual, any suggestions for a theme next month or funny anagrams you've found are more than welcome, just send me a message 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!
