Classic Mario music:
Go to the third house in Koopa Village (a Koopa is
sunning himself inside). Stand in front of the radio
and press A to switch between stations. Listen to the
Golden Oldies station to hear classic Mario theme music.
Go south in Toad Town until you get to the area with
the Li`l Oink Farm. Go left immediately after you enter
this area (there is a narrow passageway that`s not fenced
off). Hit the tree with your hammer and a pipe will appear
on the right. You can now enter the playroom, but need
either a Silver and/or Gold card to play the games.
Go to the alley right next to Toad`s house in Dry Dry
Outpost. Jump forward over the left box and the camera
will swing around to reveal a hidden area. Talk to Merlee
to learn about her special spells. Depending on how much
money you spend, she will help you during and after battles.
The spells do wear off after a certain amount of time, but
until then, it provides you with additional attack power
during some battles and more coins after battles.
