The 'Shroom:Issue 139/Fun Stuff
Look mom, I made it!
Wow, it's honestly really exciting to be here. Ever since I joined the Wiki when I was nine (six years ago, in fact), I've felt pretty connected to this newsletter. All of these creative writers, putting out stories, games, art, info, all about some of their favorite subjects... Something about it just really spoke to me, and now I'm here, directing a team for it! I suppose in an odd way, it's almost like a dream come true.
In any case, hi! I'm Roserade, here to serve as your new Fun Stuff director! I'm mega-pumped to be working alongside these fellow staff members and writers, and I hope you feel the same sort of joy just reading The 'Shroom. It's truly a special thing, and represents our community in a beautiful way.
I hope you bear with me a bit in these first couple of months, as this is entirely new to me. But hey! If you want to start a new 'Shroom adventure alongside me, hop on over to the 'Shroom sign up page to learn more about the application process, and gain inspiration for a new section! There's ton of old Fun Stuff sections up for grabs, or you can certainly come up with an idea of your own. Hope to see your application soon, and for us to grow together going forward! Additionally, a huge thank you to The Pyro Guy (talk) for the portrait artwork! It looks incredible.
Thank you very much for the read, and enjoy this spooky October edition of Fun Stuff!
Section of the Month
Hello everyone, and welcome to October's edition of anagrams- and welcome to our new director, Roserade, too! I'm sure you'll be a great director! Anyway, this month is actually the 30th anniversary of Super Mario Bros. 3- and therefore the 30th anniversary of the Koopalings, so I've put together a bunch of anagrams themed around them. And as per usual, if you've got any ideas for themes or funny anagrams you've found, send them to me via my talk page or PM me on the forums- I'd really appreciate them. Anyway, onto 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!

Spooky scary skeletons send shivers down your spine...
Welcome to another scary episode of It's aMAZEing! We don't really celebrate Halloween that much in the land of Dutch, but this is the Internet! I can't avoid it! Thus this month's maze is Dry Bones' emblem! Spooky!

Where in the Marioverse is Carmen Sandiego?
"Don't get spooky yet, gumshoe, we have a case for you to solve! Carmen has hired a band of Boos to continue her Mushroom Kingdom thievery, and they've started at the lab of Professor E. Gadd! That's right, those ghosts have made off with the Dual Scream and Gameboy Horror! These tools are core parts of the Luigi's Mansion series, and without them, E. Gadd and Luigi can't do their jobs to clear out the mansions and capture the ghosts! It's up to you to hunt those ghosts down and get the devices back! Get going!"
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.
As I'm sure you're more than aware, it is October this month, so here at The 'Shroom, we're celebrating Halloween. And as has been the tradition for the past few years that I have been doing the Quiz, that means that we will be doing spooky questions. So enjoy!
