The 'Shroom:Issue 140/Fun Stuff
Greetings, beautiful readers, and welcome to the November edition of Fun Stuff! I've always really liked the month of November; the falling leaves, the flavors, the poetically changing world, the way that the cold nips at your nose... Thankfully, I also love this November edition, and I hope you feel the same!
By the time this issue of The 'Shroom goes up, our school will just have finished our Fall Show, with a focus on European clown. It's been quite the learning experience and time commitment being a first-time stage manager, for a company of clowns, no less. But, you know what wouldn't be as foolish as those goofballs onstage? Signing up to write for Fun Stuff! We've still got plenty of room, and feel free to experiment with any game or activities you'd like to see your fellow readers play.
Make sure to settle in with a mug of hot cider, and enjoy these autumn sections!
Section of the Month
FunkyK38 (talk) has taken the lead with another great Carmen Sandiego section, while Yoshi876 (talk) has barely fallen into second. Congratulations to both of you, and keep aiming high! Congratulations to Lakituthequick (talk) for stealing third, and thank you to all of our voters!
Hello everybody, welcome to the November edition of anagrams! Seeing as it's getting quite cold were I am right now, I've decided to make some desert themed anagrams for you to help warm up a bit. And while next month's issue is going to be Super Smash Bros. themed, any suggestions for themes for the issue after or any funny anagrams you've found are more than welcome! Just leave them on my talk page or PM me on the forums. Let's get 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!

Where in the Marioverse is Carmen Sandiego?
"Trouble in paradise, gumshoe. Carmen's hired some help to snatch the Smash Ball! Originally introduced in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, this powerful item allows a fighter to use their final Smash inflict devastating damage on their foes. The tradition of using it has kept up in the installments to follow, and now it wouldn't be Super Smash Bros. to have a game without it! We've managed to narrow down the culprits: a group of bitter Waluigi fans. It doesn't seem to be escalating to a hostage situation, but you can't be too careful. Hurry and save Smash!"
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.
Nothing really happens in November that can justify an entire theme, so luckily we had a Smash direct to help out. And no, this edition of Quiz will not be another Smash Bros. themed one. Instead, we're going to be doing a Quiz around the main talking point of that direct, the Piranha Plant. Of course, this isn't going to be entirely around Piranha Plant, but the plenty of plants that have populated the Mario series. So enjoy!
