71362 Guarded Fortress Expansion Pack is a Super Mario set released on August 1, 2020.


The ground level has three paths, all of different challenges. The blue path has a Piranha Plant in a Warp Pipe, and Mario has to hop on a nearby lever to flip it over, revealing a tile that Mario can scan to defeat it for ten coins. The central path consists of red bricks, representing lava, and a couple of grey bricks. It leads to a POW Block that Mario can hop on to open the fortress doors, revealing a tile that he can scan for a coin bonus. The door catch is a lever mechanism involving a few TECHNIC pieces. The green path has three earthy platforms ordered from lowest to highest, and on the middle platform is a lever that Mario can hop on to flip the last platform, inconveniencing whatever happens to be on it. After this is another green platform holding a tile that Mario can scan to raise a red flag and finish the round.

Unlike other Koopas, the one included in this set requires two scans to defeat, thereby giving Mario a couple coins. Scanning it after it is defeated only gives Mario a single coin. The Bob-omb in this set functions just like one from 71361 Character Packs: Mario is supposed to scan it as many times as possible before it explodes, and scanning it afterwards only provides a single coin.
