The 'Shroom:Issue 149/Fun Stuff
Welcome, 'Shroom readers, to another edition of Fun Stuff! That's right, I managed to get Smasher out of my office so I could return this month! Don't ask about the details. They're pretty messy.
I hope you all have had a fantastic Awards ceremony! I know that I always highly anticipate the day of the ceremonies, and the payout is always spectacular. If there's any event that makes me feel truly unified with the community here, it's the Awards ceremony. So much ripe creativity is displayed in the presentations, and it's a chance for new conversation and collaboration with users you might not have had the chance with before! Here's an early congratulations to any winners of the community awards, and here's hoping that Hammer Bros. isn't voted as Least Favorite Enemy again.
My schedule is packed to the brim with Awards, Killing Game, realizing that I've procrastinated on my summer assignment, and a whole slew of other life events, so that's all the time I really have this month. But you know the drill: we're always accepting new writers! If you're interested in writing for the 'Shroom, check out the sign up page for more information. If you have an idea for an activity that you're not entirely sure how to put into practice, or you'd like an idea to begin with, feel free to ask and I'll help the best I can!
In addition, next month is the 150th issue of The 'Shroom! This is a huge landmark for us as a community, and we really want to be able to celebrate. We'll be accepting a slew of guest sections, so if you'd like to contribute to the Big Guy, go ahead and send in a guest section! The same details apply as a regular application, so check out the link above. If you've written before in the past and have thought about one final appearance, or if you've got a new idea you'd like to try once, now's your chance to do so.
For those of you still in school, I hope that you feel a comfortable transition back into the classroom in the coming month. Otherwise, I hope you've all had a fantastic summer, and you find this month's Fun Stuff to be just as fantastic!

Hello everyone, I hope you all enjoyed the awards (Congratulations to everyone who did well in the community awards!) and the brand new forum update! This month I've decided to put together a set of Super Mario Party anagrams for you, partly because I've been playing a lot of it recently, but also because it fits in quite well with the awards. And, as I always say, if you have any ideas for themes for future sections or have found a funny Mario-related anagram, don't hesitate to let me know, either via my talk page or by sending me a PM on the newly-updated forums. I don't have an awful lot more to say at the moment, apart from enjoy the anagrams, and I'll hopefully 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!

Hi, everyone! It's time for another Hiding Koopa. I'm pretty busy right now, and the little free time I have left is spent on Fire Emblem: Three Houses. I need to continue teaching my Golden Deer students, and Claude is currently waiting for me at my Tea Party, so I have to hurry. Oh, and a little propaganda right here for Joe Zieja (voice of Claude) while I write these lines (no polygon). FEAR THE DEER!
Still, this month's artwork is not really related to Fire Emblem: Three Houses (whaaaat??). It's about a game that I'm waiting for and that comes out at the end of this month. Did you guess it? It's Astral Chain from PlatinumGames! Make sure to find out where these five cute little Koopas are hiding. Have fun!
Did you manage to find them all? Whatever your result, thank you for playing, and come back next month for our 150th Issue. Meanwhile, happy gaming!
Where in the Marioverse is Carmen Sandiego?
