Super Mario Bros. 3
In Super Mario Bros. 3, mushroom houses appear across the world maps. When Mario enters, a Toad will offer Mario the choice of three chests each with a power-up inside. Once Mario has taken a power-up from a Mushroom House, the house will be void and can not be entered again until Mario gets a game over.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
There are 3 different types of Mushroom Houses. There are 2 ways to unlock one. The first way is to get through a course that will unlock the path to get to the house. The other way is to save a Toad (after having a message come from Bowser saying that Bowser would throw Toads into ? Box) by getting him out of a ? Box and carrying him to the goal.
Power-Up Mushroom House
Just like a Super Mushroom's color, this house is red and with white spots. When entering, a Toad welcomes you to a door. When you enter through the door, a game will start called "Power-Up Blast." Power-Up Blast is a game where you turn over many cards that are hanging on a net. Each card has a power-up item in it. You are supposed to flip over cards to try and find the match of a power-up item. There are about 2 to 4 cards with the same type of power-up item on the back of the card. The hard part is that there are 2 pairs of Bowser and Bowser Jr. cards. If you accidentally match 2 Bowser or Bowser Jr. cards, the game finishes, and the results are announced.
1-Up Mushroom House
The color of this house is the same of that of a 1-up Mushroom, which is green with white spots. After entering, Toad again greets you to a door. This door takes you to a game called "1-Up Blast." This game is all about trying to get 1-Ups. There are many yellow-colored bubbles that are hold 1-Ups in them. The bubbles move to make it trickier for you to get them. There are 4 cannons. You are to enter into one of the cannons and move the cannon to the position you want it to be in so that you can hit some 1-Ups. When you are ready, you must shoot the character out and hope he hits at least one 1-Up Bubble.
Star Mushroom House
This house is white with yellow stars covering it. When entering, Toad will be standing by a treasure chest, telling you that "This is a special item." When coming near the chest, it will open, and will release a star. After this, you will then have a Star Power-Up to use when you would like to use it.
