Test Your Mario Knowledge!

To celebrate the release of Super Mario Galaxy 2, we're throwing a Mario Party here at Chez Escape, and you know what that means: It's quiz time!

This isn't just any old quiz, though. For something this special, not only did we supersize the quiz to a whopping 20 questions, but we're also doing something brand new. You'll get a badge for completing it, but your score will determine what badge you get. You only get one shot at a badge, so be careful! Unless, of course, you actually want to be a goomba. (Hey, we don't judge.)

As usual, you can take as long as you like on the quiz, and take it as many times as you like, but the score you get the first time you finish the quiz is what will determine the badge you receive.

Ready? Then let's-a go! (Take the Quiz [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/quizzes/view/82])

For more Mario fun, be sure to check out our Mario Party! [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/editorials/misc/7593-Welcome-to-The-Escapists-Mario-Party]

Lol at first I was like "Oh Yeah Mario bring it on!"

And then the first question was about the movie.

:(

Nice quiz. I really liked that one. Although one of the questions is a little misleading I'll PM you with the issue.

70%... Not bad, considering I haven't played any Mario games since the SNES era apart from Superstar Saga.

Well, it is ALL things Mario. But there's only one movie question. Suck it up, sunshine. :)

55% isn't too shabby, considering I have played only Super Mario Bros. Deluxe on the Game Boy Colour.

Calumon: Your a fanboy!

It's not that I didn't understand why it was in the quiz, but I just simply have NO IDEA as to the answer. It demotivated me in the extreme :)

100% with 19 questions answered...hmm. I'm not sure how that works. However, I'm apparently a bigger Mario nerd than I thought, even though I never really played Bros. 2 or 3, or even Super Mario 64 that much.

Curses! 95% I would have gotten 100 but the not allowing you to fly question was misleading!
I wasn't too happy about this question either. Great quiz though.

Phew! That was a though one!! I had some trouble with the "no fly" question, but apparently, I'm too late for the "whine" party... =D Great quiz, and thanks for treating us on a Friday!
I don't see my badge though... *scratches head in puzzlement*

Do we get another shot at the 100% badge then or is it too late?

Well, the badge for 20 right and 19 right is the same badge, so if that's the only one you got wrong, you're still ok.

Wow... That was hard. Much like the older mario games...
Well, I fluked through some of the questions, including the movie one!

The internet isn't in the USA, so unless you are intentionally trying to alienate readers from every other country in the world, you should refrain from phrasing questions like the one in the image below.

Are these badges temporary? It's just, I'm positive I can ace the quiz so I wouldn't mind deliberately jeopardising my own score to get a cooler badge :)
