What is Happy Happy Village policy on who is allowed to stay in Happy Happy Village, according to the proprietor of Meagre Livin' Farm? Only family members are allowed to stay.

After you beat him, what kind of life did Carpainter say he wanted to live? A normal life.

What's in the trash can in Threed nearest the tunnel that leads to the Dusty Dunes desert? Skip sandwich.

What does a Happy Happyist in the Happy Happyist main building say he wants to be after you beat Carpainter? "Let's be buddies!"

In what sort of manner do certain enemies attempt to possess you? They will attempt to possess you in a frightening manner.
What's the only status ailment that an NPC somewhere is suffering from when you talk to them? (Hint: the correct response is not "Feeling strange".) The correct answer is, of course, Mashroomisation, suffered from by the I-Love-New-York guy in the Twoson hotel.
Why might the Runaway Five's bus not run? Because it hasn't been used in such a long time, it might be rusted out.

CodeHunter64, CodPor, Gauntlet, JeffMan, Kahran042, Rat, and Ravenshaw won this week.



Week 158:

What attack, inflictable by a non-boss enemy in Threed, can cause you to start crying? This would be the Putrid Moldyman's scattering of mold spores.
What specifically does Paula says she would have had to do if you hadn't come to help her? She would have had to bust out of there herself; in Mother 2, she would have been crying. But only one person mentioned that, and he also gave the other answer too.

The Hint Man, the water vendor outside the northern entrance to the Pyramid, and the weapons vendor outside the southern entrance to the Pyramid.

With your counting starting on the left, what instrument is played by the first musician of the Runaway Five in the Chaos Theatre? He's a drummer, so obviously he plays the harmonica.

Weeks 161 and 162:

How many persons are in the circus tent when the zombies are all stuck to the Zombie paper? Now the answer I was looking for was two, for the shades dude and the business suit. But people kept answering 5, and I was completely flabbergasted. "How are they getting 5?" Then I thought about it a second: Ness, Paula and Jeff. So 2 and 5 are both acceptable answers.
What's the first enemy you fight that can leave behind a condiment? The Ramblin' Evil Mushroom.
What is the condiment mentioned above? Ketchup packet.
What's one of the enemies in the Pink Cloud cave against which the Franklin badge is utterly useless? The Franklin badge, as we all know, reflects lightning-elemental attacks. The only two enemies in the Pink Cloud cave that have no lightning-based attacks, and thus can't be countered with the Franklin badge, are the Tangoo and the Kiss of Death. (Note that the French Kiss of Death is an entirely different enemy.)
What are two of the externally visible status conditions (that is, you can tell someone's suffering from it without referencing the HP/PP box or the character's status screen) that the Saturn Valley hot springs can cure? Mashroomisation, possession, Diamondisation, and paralysis and unconsciousness. It can't cure Unconsciousness; [C]olds, poison and nausea can only be confirmed by checking the status screen or the HP/PP box; and feeling strange, uncontrollable crying and inability to move can't be cured by the hot springs because they're automatically cured once a battle ends.

Clanker, EBsessor, King Banana, Lucid Faia, psychic ness and Trae Graves won this set.
