  1. Note: This is indeed, a beginner route, which will be assuming that you will not be doing loading zone storage on the cards, or blue house skip. If you wish to do loading zone storage on the cards, but not Blue House Skip, the route will alter very slightly later on, only if the chapter 3 lzs is used.
  2. World Record Video: http://www.twitch.tv/gigadb/c/4504347
  3. Even though the world record route will be a bit different than this one it will still be very helpful in learning, such as dodging enemies and etc. Dodging enemies is very crucial to this category, so if your beginning practice dodging enemies as much as possible and during runs save often.
  4.  
  5.  
  6.         ~~~PROLOGUE~~~
  7. Note: This route is strict on coins for safety at first i suggest picking up 2 sleepy sheeps on your path through prologue and chapter 1. You will require 50 coins at the end of chapter 1 to buy speedy spin. One sleepy sheep is in an item box on the bottom left corner on the screen after the goomba king fight in prologue, and one is very easy to find after hitting the 1st bridge switch in chapter 1. You can sell the sleepy sheep for 4 coins each after chapter 1 if you are short.
  8.  
  9. Please watch the all cards world record for a general direction of what to do/go this route will not be completely descriptive of every detail of what to do, if you have no idea where you are going please just watch the video (excluding chapter 4 and 5 those will be a bit more descriptive since they will differ greatly)

  202. Be VERY careful here you have one health, do NOT jump on the pyro guy on the way to lanturn ghost by accident.
  203. A quick note about the fights in chapter 4:
  204. If you are playing on virtual console (VC) you WILL experience HEAVY lag in these fights especially, you will need to hit action commands a bit earlier then you may expect. Also sometimes the game will try to compensate for said lag by speeding itself up which is actually a very bad thing, because if this happens when you need to hit an action command you WILL miss it, and probably die.
