The 'Shroom:Issue 145/Fun Stuff
Greetings, 'Shroom readers! Welcome to the April edition of Fun Stuff. Unfortunately, we are without Fools this month (unless you count Chester Alan Arthur (talk)), but thankfully, what we lack in-jokes, we more than make up for it in fun sections! So if you're rolling in those after-Spring Break lulls like I am currently, go again and stimulate that noggin of yours by getting to playing!
As always, we are looking for new writers, so you know the drill: Check out the sign-up page here for details and ideas, and we hope to see your submission soon!
Section of the Month
Congratulations to LudwigVon (talk) on claiming first place with his wonderful resurrection of Guess Who!. Congrats to FunkyK38 (talk) for claiming second place, and thank you to Lakituthequick (talk) for the wonderful maze and tribute, which landed him in third. Thank you to the rest of our wonderful writers, and make sure to vote, dear reader!
Hi there everyone, welcome to April's edition of Anagrams! It's the 30th anniversary of Super Mario Land this month, so I thought I'd put together a set of anagrams based on this game to mark it. And of course, if you have any ideas for future themes, or have found any funny anagrams that I could potentially work into a future issue, feel free to let me know either by leaving a message on my talk page or by sending me a PM on the forums- I'd love to hear your suggestions! Now, 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!

Hi there, welcome to It's aMAZEing!
Today's maze is a Snow Bunny, an item in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, background element in Mario Party 6, and a bit of a Japanese tradition if it has snowed.

A new month, a new Issue, a new Hiding Koopas!
Hello, 'Shroom readers, and welcome to a new edition of Hiding Koopas! Like previous editions, the goal is the same. Five Koopa Troopas are hidden in the artwork below. Do you think you can find them all? Well, good luck!
Nintendo recently announced with the arrival of the Nintendo Labo VR Kit, a new VR experience for Super Mario Odyssey. So, to celebrate the occasion, I chose an artwork from that game!
Did you manage to find them? In any case, thanks for playing, and come back next month!
Where in the Marioverse is Carmen Sandiego?
We’re gonna do things a little differently this month: everything is going to be about sports. So did you know?
