Challenge #3 - Rebus Revenge

Challenge #3 - Rebus Revenge
[October 14]



Hahahaha! You expected SZ? Well too bad, for you're in HJ territory now! And I'll show you what kind of fall fantasy I've come up with!

Let's see what your challenge this week is... Rebus Puzzles! Essentially what you guys have to contend with are images and sometimes words or letters which convey a particular meaning related to the Mario Universe. There will be a new set of rebus puzzles every two days (there will be four sets of ten total), and you won't be able to answer old sets of riddles once new ones are uploaded.

To start with, I'll leave a cryptic title that describes the group of rebus puzzles given, and the following day I'll drop a clue for each of the puzzles. In addition, on the second day your team may ask me for an extra clue for any one (and one only) rebus in the current group.

Puzzles are ranked according to their difficulty, assessed by an independent source. The higher the rank, the more points the puzzle is worth.

As usual, use your Final Answers for submissions and make a new topic and discuss with your teammates to maximize your chances.




Final Standings (out of max 410)
1. Rhapsody Core - 345 points
2. Super Princess Mushroom Dino Force - 145 points
3. TheChaoticCriminalYoshis~ - 35 points points
4. The Spiritual Fungi Kong Koopalings - 10 points
5. Saxobone Guys - 0 points






Set 1 - "For the Want of Ten Coins"

Spoiler: Rank B Puzzles (click to show/hide)

Spoiler: Rank C Puzzles (click to show/hide)

Point Breakdown
Rank A puzzles - 20 points for each correct
Rank B puzzles - 15 points for each correct
Rank C puzzles - 10 points for each correct
Rank D puzzles - 5 points for each correct




BTW SZ will tidy up the Riddle Hunt - not my watch B[

Humph! Time's up, let's see how you minions did...

You'd be digging vacated Monty Mole burrows if ya didn't realize we were talkin' 'bout minigames this time.
And now for what you've always wanted to know, our solutions for Set #1:

Spoiler: Solutions (click to show/hide)

Notice how I had a minigame from each of the console games plus DS? Sneaky sneaky...




Before I get started on the next diabolical set, listen up for these pieces of advice from Uncle 8B1T:

>Work out what the Set's cryptic title stands for, and you'll have a better chance. Isn't that right Mic_Kirby? -shoves a mike in his hand-
>Even if you're not 100% certain, submit something! I'm not that evil to penalize you for wrong submissions.
>Rebus puzzles don't focus on hidden meanings so much as face-value comprehension and clever sounds. Or something. And no Chaos, if this were a test I WOULDA SENT YA OUTTA THE DOOR! >:E
>Do your research. You have this wonderful resource called the net; amplify your brains with it!!!
>I'm going to give a hint on the cryptic title on the second day in addition to the riddle hints.

...pardon my brashness. Ahem, next!

Oh-noes! The timer went to zero! If-a you haven't submitted, Too Bad! -Mario falls off stage-

Ahem! Let's see what went down in this set:

Spoiler: Progress (click to show/hide)

The Stars and Shines were reference to the 3D Mario Game objectives while the 'turning the page' refers to chapters from Paper Mario.
Here's Set #2's tattle log. Obviously found in the trash can:

Spoiler: Solutions (click to show/hide)

Two each from PMTTYD, SM64 (original), SMG, SMG2 and SMS. For those teams without points, you'd better get collecting! >:E




No more advice from me right now. But since some of you chumps are struggling, I'm gonna go EASY on ya this time and give you an EASY set. If you don't score at least half of the maximum for this one, prepare yourself for a trip to the rotisserie - I'm sure to enjoy kong koopaling krispy ribs and saxobone stew. (:<
