The Peaceful Woods was once the friendly home of sprites and other gentle forest creatures. Wario and his band of monsters invaded, though, and spoiled the serenity of the woods. The quiet, wooodlands community has now been turned upside-down by these horrifying events. Wario has now named the woods after himself, and the peaceful creatures are not welcome.
Toad, the Mushroom Kingdom hero, has decided to travel to Wario's Woods and put an end to Wario's evil reign of terror. Toad knows that, with the sprites help, he will be able to rid the forest of Mario's twisted nemesis. Thankfully, the sprites are able to create bombs. It's Toad's job to line up the bombs with the enemies of the woods, thus defeating those evil creatures. By clearing more and more of the woods, Toad steps ever closer to the ultimate challenge of facing Wario.

Why a shrine to
Because I have a totally irrational love for the game. It's a strange, quirky and unique take on the falling blocks genre of puzzle games, and despite being a Mario game, it's host to all manner of distinctive one-off characters, giving it a lot of unique charm.
Plus, having a shrine means I've got a good dumping ground for my manual scans and music and whatnot.
