Written by: Superchao (talk)

Hello, 'Shroom readers! Yes, it's me, Superchao. One last time, doing the ol' fill in for someone routine to see out my term as sub-director. Compared to writing seven sections last month, this was a piece of cake! Thanks, LTQ.

Not much to say, other than Hiding Koopa is back! That old classic that kept winning SOTM returns, now done by LudwigVon (talk). Give him a hand while you try to find these stealthy koopas! Unfortunately, this is also Yoshi876 (talk)'s final Quiz section. We thank him a ton for his contributions, and wish him the best moving forward!

Anagrams

Written by: BBQ Turtle (talk)

Hello everyone, welcome to the first 'Shroom issue of 2019! Let's hope that this year goes just as smoothly as last year and we see lots more interesting 'Shroom sections. And I believe that this is Meta Knight and Superchao's last issue as director and sub-director, so thanks to them for doing such a great job, and the best of luck to those who follow after them! Anyway, this month's issue is Super Princess Peach themed, so I hope you enjoy these anagrams and I hope to see you all again next month!

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!

1. PANDAS AID ILL

2. MAKE INK TAG

3. TOOTH WARDS

4. COOL NAVY FUR

5. LIAR BUZZ US

6. RELABEL LIDS

7. ICE PET VERBS

8. HAVE BY CAW

9. ALLERGIC GAME

10. HARM BORE MY ARM

Hiding Koopas

Written by: LudwigVon (talk)

WANTED!

Good to be back to Fun Stuff! Anyway, welcome 'Shroom gamers (well you are in Fun Stuff to play games right?), your Stats Manager is here today to deliver a new Hiding Koopas. There's one simple rule, and it is to find Koopa Troopas who have hidden themselves in the artwork below of the recently release Switch game New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. There are five of them. Are you able to find them all? Good luck!

Did you do well? In any case, I hope you enjoyed this little Koopa research. See you again next issue!

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

Oh my stars!

"Carmen's got a lot of tricks, gumshoe, and now she's stealing stars! No, not the stars in the sky! Crystal stars! The crystal stars were introduced in Paper Mario:The Thousand Year Door, and they were used as a kind of key to open the door to the shadow dimension. Mario and co. fought hard to keep the world safe, and now Carmen's troop of Paper Paratroopas has stolen the entire set! We need you to get those stars back before Carmen can get her hands on them for good. Get cracking on this case, cadet!"

"How crafty! Returning to the game of the crime... Just another one of Carmen's many tricks. Well, this one has been solved today! We found the entire set of Crystal Stars tucked safely away on the train, and the gang of Paper Paratroopas in the dining car. Perhaps Carmen should get some better minions. Either way, cadet, you were in the right game all along! Good work! "
