douglas solves the puzzle TEM and myself are this round's "winners." *Shudders at the horror of what I'm about to face.*
-Penalty Game: Question Block Barrage: (Inspired by something in the Deep Thoughts forum) TEM and magnum are sent to a Super Mario Brothers sytle world. After stomping on some Goombas, they run into a question block. Thinking its full of goodies, they hit it. Unfortunately, this block was the home for a swarm of killer bees, which attack the unlucky saps. Hoping for a fire flower, they hit another block, which causes a bomb to rise out of the box and explode, sending them flying into a water world. Alas, the horrible experience continues with the next block, which opens up to reveal its treasure, a school of blood thirsty pirrhanas, which chase TEM and magnum into a castle. You would think that the point of not touching question blocks would surface by now, but some well placed deceptive signs trick their greed into hitting yet another block, which gives a "Mario brothers style firewhip" anti-powerup. It burns them, causing them to fall on one last question block. At first, nothing happens, but then they hear some awful, yet familiar lyrics. The song "Can You Feel the Sunshine." Plays and gets louder, signifying the presence of the cotton stuffed embodidment of evil that goes by the name "Tails Doll." With his trademark butcher knife in hand, you know what's going to happen next if you've ever heard the stories of the Tails Doll curse.
-On to the next round, which is a request.
