    1  Introduction
    
    This guide was written to help out players of the game maximize their winnings
    in the Red Mushroom Houses in New Super Mario Bros Wii. Similar to Super
    Mario Bros. 3 on the NES, these houses give you power ups you can use from
    the world map before entering a stage. If you're having trouble beating a stage
    or getting to a hidden exit or Star Coin, use of a power up could be a great
    help.
    
    
    2  Opening the Houses
    
    You'll notice 1 or 2 Red Mushroom houses on the map on Worlds 1-7. These are
    unlocked after beating certain stages. You can also open up extra mushroom
    houses in the single player mode. In some levels Toad will be hidden in a
    ?-Block in the stage; if you carry him to the end of the stage, on top of
    getting bonus 1ups,you can unlock a mushroom house back at the beginning of the
    World Map, depending on how many seconds are left at the end of the timer. The
    House you'll unlock is:
    
    0-3 seconds: Green Mushroom House
    4-6 seconds: Red Mushroom House
    7-9 seconds: Gold Mushroom House.
    
    So for example, finishing a stage with 266 seconds left with Toad will open a
    Red Mushroom House. 
    
    3  Explaining the Game
    
    Boards are set up on a 3x6 grid, on a chain link fence. This gives Mario 18
    panels to guess from. Simply climb up the fence to the panel you want to hit
    and press 1 (or B if you're using the nunchuck  Wii Remote controller setting)
    to punch the block and spin it around. 
    
    You can get a variety of items, but there are also panels you want to avoid.
    With 18 panels, there will be 9 matches, and 2 of those sets of panels will be
    Bowser and Bowser Jr. If you get a match of father or son, the game ends early,
    so you want to avoid those panels. You can get one Bowser and one Bowser Jr.
    panel without the game ending, but matching either will end it.
    
    4  The Boards
    
    There are 6 different 'maps' for the games in each World. For the first world
    you can get Super Mushrooms, Fire Flowers, Ice Flowers, Starmen, and Propeller
    Caps. Starting from World 2 you can no longer get Super Mushrooms, but you can
    get Mini Mushrooms instead. Starting from World 3, you can also get Penguin
    Suits. I'll be mapping out each of the 6 boards as well as list panels you can
    safely hit to determine what board you're on.
    
    Guide:
    Jr. = Bowser Jr.
    B = Bowser
    SM = Super Mushroom
    FF = Fire Flower
    IF = Ice Flower
    ST = Starman
    PC = Propeller Cap
    MM = Mini Mushroom
    PS = Penguin Suit
    
    Rows are A-C and Columns are 1-6. Panel C1 is the bottom left of the board,
    with panel A6 being the top right.
    
    4.1  World 1
    
    Hit panels B1, B3, and C1 to safely tell which map you're on.

    5  Closing and Thanks
    
    Thanks to GameFAQs.com for hosting this guide.
    
    Thanks to Nintendo for making a great game.
    
    Thanks to M0b1us11235 on GameFAQs.com. His guide on the Mushroom Houses was
    incomplete, but it inspired me to get all the correct information and post it.
    
    Special thanks to DBPanterA on GameFAQs.com for providing some of the world 9
    maps, and reminding me I forgot World 8 and 9 in my first version. Doh!
    
    Thanks to WarlockAG on GameFAQs.com for informing me of the error on Map 5B,
    and Jtt410 for the error on map 3E.
    
    This is the first version of this guide; as of right now this is only
    play-testing done by myself. If it turns out I got some info wrong or there are
    more boards that I never came across, or if you just want to send in any
    comments or questions, then please email me at marneshi@gmail.com. I'll update
    any info I get and give credit where it's due!
