Furnace Fun


[edit] Summary

A picture of the game board and it's various panels in Furnace Fun.

Gruntilda's own game show-like game in Banjo-Kazooie is a trivial game in which Gruntilda quizzes you with various facts on the game. This event is the last challenge given by Grunty before you are prompted to defeat Grunty in the final battle before the sequel, Banjo Tooie.

[edit] Panels

  • Banjo-Kazooie - This is the main panel that will appear on the game board. By landing on this panel, Grunty will ask you a random question about the game worlds. To proceed, you must answer the question correctly, otherwise Grunty will take away one of your honeycombs.
  • Blank - Blank panels can be found all over the game board and sometimes contain extra honeycombs or lives. There are a total of four extra lives on the game board.
  • Eyeball - By landing on this panel, Grunty will ask you a question by showing you a screenshot from a various world within the game. To proceed to the next panel, Banjo will have to correctly answer which world the image is from, otherwise, Grunty will remove one of Banjo's honeycombs.
  • Grunty - When Banjo and Kazooie land on this panel, they will be prompted to answer a question solely related to Grunty's life. Most of the questions asked are awkward questions. The only way to know the answers to these questions are to have been talking to Grunty's kinder sister, Brentilda. Because of Brentilda and Gruntilda's feud, Brentilda will always tell Banjo three of her secrets when he approaches her to talk. Brentilda can be found all over Spiral Mountain.
  • Joker - When Banjo lands on this panel, they will receive a random question just like the Skull panel. If they answer the question correctly, the two will receive two Joker Cards, which can be used to skip two of the panels if used.
  • Note - When the duo land on this panel, Grunty will immediately play a tune from the game. The tune can vary from the voice of a character within the game, to the tune of the world it is from. To proceed, Banjo must select the tune which Grunty plays.
  • Skull - This panel is the most dangerous. The category of this panel can be anything (Eye, Banjo-Kazooie, Grunty, etc...). The penalty for answering Grunty's question incorrectly is much more severe than any of the other panels. Instead of losing one of Banjo's honeycombs, instead, the panel will drop into the pit of lava (furnace) below.

[edit] Dialog

Banjo-Kazooie Panel: "A little answer's all I seek, About this game you furry geek!"
Blank Panel: Nothing
Eyeball Panel: "A visual challenge you stupid bear, To tell me who is it or where!"
Grunty Panel: "I think it's time, so let me see, How much you know of little old me!"
Joker Panel: "Just one chance to get this right, Win a joker and help it might!"
Note Panel: "A question on the sounds I play, Get it wrong to make my day!"
Skull Panel: "Get this wrong for Grunty's sake, Then a lava bath you will take!"

[edit] Common Categories Of Questions

  • The amount of notes to unlock doors
  • Names of popularized characters in certain worlds
  • Questions of Grunty's personal life. Almost all of these questions can only be answered if you have talked to Grunty's nicer sister, Brentilda, as she tends to tell a lot of Grunty's most embarrassing secrets to Banjo and Kazooie.

The first, second, and third prizes of Furnace Fun.

There are three different prizes that can be obtained after completing Grunty's gameshow. Banjo will receive the prize corresponding to the amount of times he got answers correct/incorrect. The third place prize is large Grunty doll that is human-sized. This doll makes a few appearances in later games, one of which in Banjo Tooie's, Jolly Roger Lagoon. The second place prize is a washing machine. Finally, the first place prize is Tooty, yet you will still have to beat Gruntilda in the final battle to complete the game.
