The 'Shroom:Issue 138/Fun Stuff
Well, I guess this is it. My last time doing this. It's really been a ride.
It was really fun (hahaaaa) doing this, honestly. I'm glad I spent a year on the team. I'm proud to announce my successor, Roserade (talk). I've worked with him on the Poll Committee before, and I'm confident in saying that he'd be a great fit for Fun Stuff director. This team will be in good hands with him.
I'd like to give a special shoutout to everyone who's written for Fun Stuff under my jurisdiction. Camwood, TPG, BBQ Turtle, LTQ, Meta Knight, LudwigVon, FunkyK38, Yoshi876, Shoey; all of you submitted fantastic sections that I loved reading and participating in, and new innovations made by you all certainly made this job so much more fun. I hope those who have stayed on till now can continue to stay on, and those who have left would consider coming back one day.
Thanks to all the readers too for enjoying Fun Stuff under my lead. Rose will carry this team to new heights. Till then, enjoy this last issue of Fun Stuff from me. - LB
Section of the Month
Hello everyone, and welcome to the September issue of anagrams! Seeing as this'll be Lord Bowser's last issue as Fun Stuff director, I've decided to make a set of Bowser themed anagrams as a sort of goodbye and thanks for being a great director! And as I always say, 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!

Where in the Marioverse is Carmen Sandiego?
"Pause the party, gumshoe! We've just received word that Carmen has escaped from prison! And that's not all she's done! She's stolen all of Mario's Party Dice! That's right, the dice that Mario uses to play his famous Party games! Without these dice, players can't move around the boards, collect coins, or participate in minigames! You need to get those dice back, gumshoe, and quickly! The party can't start without them!"
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.
Now this was quite possibly the hardest quiz I've ever had to compose, although it will probably be easy for you guys. But with Isabelle announced for Super Smash Bros., I decided to theme this quiz on the Animal Crossing series, but as our readership are primarily Mario gamers, all of these will be instances of the Animal Crossing series in the Mario series. So enjoy!
