Welcome, 'Shroom readers! I'm currently writing three sections for the 'Shroom, Picross, Monthly Inquisition, and Super Mario Maker Showcase. Feel free to give feedback or suggestions for future editions here. Below, you will find more detailed information on my sections, as well as a list of all of them.

Picross

For those who are not familiar, picross is a puzzle game revolving around logic, and the goal is to fill in a grid to reveal a picture. For a detailed set of rules, with an example included, you can refer to Issue 157, and you can also find rules online. Each issue has two to four puzzles focusing on a certain theme, such as a character, game, and series.

List of publications:
Issue 157 (April 2020)
Issue 158 (May 2020)
Issue 159 (June 2020)
Issue 160 (July 2020)
Issue 161 (August 2020)
Issue 162 (September 2020)
Issue 163 (October 2020)
Issue 164 (November 2020)
Issue 165 (December 2020)
Issue 166 (January 2021)
Issue 167 (February 2021)
Issue 168 (March 2021)
Issue 169 (April 2021)

Monthly Inquisition

In Monthly Inquisition, I interview various citizens from the Mushroom Kingdom, from famous heroes, to lesser known enemies, to obscure one-off characters. I will ask them questions in an attempt to uncover some interesting facts and juicy secrets, because that's what the readers want, right?

List of publications:
Issue 159 (June 2020)
Issue 160 (July 2020)
Issue 161 (August 2020)
Issue 165 (December 2020)
Issue 166 (January 2021)
Issue 167 (February 2021)
Issue 168 (March 2021)

Super Mario Maker Showcase

Here, I highlight a variety of courses in Super Mario Maker 2, and explain in what ways I find them interesting, whether due to their concept, mechanics, or other features. You can submit your own courses as well, and I might include them in a future issue.

I haven't been here in a while...

Anyway, Issue 162 is out! Be sure to check out Picross, themed around Mario's 35th anniversary! Monthly Inquisition isn't present in this issue, but rest assured, it will return next month.

Also, if you have any feedback or suggestions, feel free to put them here!

The time has come for this thread to be resurrected. If you've read the 'Shroom, then you may have seen my new section, Super Mario Maker Showcase. This section highlights levels from Super Mario Maker 2 that I find creative, have nice level design, or are intriguing in other areas.

If there's a level that you'd like to see me cover in this section, whether it's your own or one that you've played, you can submit its name and ID here! Ideally, one of the five courses that I will cover each month would be user-submitted. However, I have a couple of conditions to a course so that I can review it:
1. I have to beat the course so that I can get the full experience. I would say I'm a decently good player, but I can't do anything kaizo-related or anything that requires pixel-perfect platforming.
2. The level has to require skill and platforming in some way. By that I mean, no enemy spam levels, no levels which require the player to find an invisible block, no pick-a-pipe level, etc.

Sidenote: I've debated on whether to include the first Super Mario Maker in this section, since Nintendo doesn't support it anymore. For now, I've decided against it, but if you don't have the second game and only have the Wii U one, you can still submit it, and I might include it in the section.

That's all I have to say, if you have any questions, feel free to ask me!

I have 3 cool ones called the angry moon. I'll give you IDs when I'm able to. Also, the first one is about killing a bunch of mid-air goombas without touching the moon. Does that count as enemy spam?

I wouldn't say so. I would consider enemy spam to be a level where dozens upon dozens of enemies are placed without rhyme or reason, without any other challenge whatsoever.

Cool! I also have one that would be cool for issue 171. I'll give you the ID's at around... .
