Ring Scramble

Level 1

Ring Scramble
Ring Scramble

*Puzzle gets scrambled randomly!!!

Level 1 can be completed entirely by turning rings - you won't have to slide tiles in and out whatsoever. You'll have 4 moves to solve this.

Level 2


*Puzzle gets scrambled randomly!!!

You'll have 7 moves to solve the level 2 puzzle.

Try to focus on aligning the buildings and tower first. You'll have 6 moves to get this in place.

Race 'n' Place

Competitors And Ranking Are Random


From the tests we've done on multiple game files, it seems that both the racers and the final result are random each time. This means there won't be any way to easily do this. However, we do recommend taking a screenshot at the end and consulting it before you make your decision.

Ninji Skills

Ninji Patterns Are Random

There are many possible variants for Ninji Skills puzzles in each level. The following images are just a few examples we encountered.

Level 1


You'll need to keep track of 1 Ninji out of 5 characters. Compared to higher levels, the puzzle moves relatively slowly.

Level 2


This time you need to keep track of 2 Ninjis. It might feel silly but if you're having trouble, try using your fingers to follow along with the two Ninji boxes on the screen!

Level 3


There are more Ninjis than other characters in this level. The puzzle gets much easier if you just keep track of the non-Ninji characters instead!

Bath Math

Bath Math Goomba Number Is Random

The number of Goombas in each category appears to be random. This means we can't really show you the right answer. However, there is one easy method to solve level 1 and 2: take a screenshot right before the round ends. For a brief moment you'll get to see all the Goombas in the hot spring. Take your time in the Switch menu and count the Goombas before answering!

Why would Nintendo think this type of thing is "fun"to put into the game. I buy Paper Mario for an RPG experience… not some stupid eyesight, and memory test

Did you know that if you hold down the screenshot ****on on your Switch, it'll make a recording of the last 30 seconds of gameplay?

Sadly, Bath Math level 3 and Ninji Skills level 3 take longer than 30 seconds, but this works wonders on the other challenges.

Ninji answers are wrong. Or they are randomised. Please recheck
