===============================================================================

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.

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!
