The 'Shroom:Issue 151/Fun Stuff
Greetings, bootiful 'Shroom readers! Welcome to the October edition of Fun Stuff! Fall is in full force, and I've always been a fan of the leadup to Halloween. While usually my Halloween night is occupied by play rehearsal, the feeling of getting festively frightened is always a treat. There's something so pleasant about the Halloween Spirit, which I like to carry with me every year; there's nothing quite like some good ol' scary fun. So put up those spiderweb decorations, play some "Monster Mash" in the background, and enjoy this spooky 'Shroom installment!
Unfortunately, LudwigVon (talk) couldn't get his sections in this month, which means we are a smaller team than usual, buuttt there's always room for more writers! You can check out the 'Shroom signup page for everything you need to know about applying. If you've got an idea that you don't know how to translate into an article, or if you'd like to write for Fun Stuff but don't have a current idea, no worries! Let me know, and I'm more than happy to work with you to make your section a reality. Seeing your application would be a real... Treat for me.
That's all from me, so go ahead and get to reading! OoOoOoOo...
Section of the Month
Congratulations to FunkyK38 (talk) for maintaining first place! Congratulations to LudwigVon (talk) for second place, and Lakituthequick (talk) for third. Of course, thank you to all of our Fun Stuff writers, contributors, and readers, because without you, there wouldn't be a Fun Stuff!
Hello again all, welcome to October's edition of anagrams! As it's getting towards that spooky time of year again, I thought that this month I'd put together some ghost-related anagrams for you- think ghost characters and species, and not just the most obvious ones. Of course, if you ever have any suggestions for themes that I could use in future issues or happen to have come across some funny anagrams that I could use as part of a theme, don't be afraid to drop by my talk page or send me a PM on the forums, it's always welcome. Anyway, I'll let you get on with trying to solve these anagrams now, 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!
