This is it, folks: the season finale of The Great Retro Quiz! Don’t fret, though; it will be back for an even better “Season 2” after a short break. I just need to tweak a few things -- maybe hire twenty-five beautiful women to hold some metal cases -- and, I don’t know, install a Plinko board or something. Yeah, the Great Retro Quiz! definitely needs a Plinko board.
In the meantime, start studying up on things like Final Fantasy VI, Super Mario Bros. 3, and Super Metroid. These games may be making an appearance come next season (hint hint).
To celebrate the grand finale and the strangely coincidental release of Mario Kart Wii, this week’s quiz is all the original Super Mario Kart for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. How well do you remember it?
Just leave your answers in your comments and check my community blog tomorrow (5/1) for the dramatic results.
Start your mental engines and ... good luck! The Great Retro Quiz! misses you already!
