I've just entered the Big Surf Lodge. I've walked in, closed the door behind me, examined Slades's clothes and hung them back up, looked at his wallet, put it back on the table, got the letter chart from the sofa and moved the pillow back, picked up the bible, closed the drawer, and then picked up the vial, closed that drawer, and went to hide in the closet, closing the door behind me.
I get killed, every single time, and believe me, I've tried this a dozen different times now.
What in the world am I doing wrong?
The answer is....chocolate! Who cares what the question is.....

Mary, what I didn't make clear in my first post is that you should try leaving either the chart or the bible behind. I took the bible and got a comment that Slade wouldn't notice, then left the chart. If I took the chart first, Tex said the same thing about Slade not noticing. If I took both items I died. Take one or the other. You get to come back and get whatever you left behind. Give it a try, see if it works.

One other thought, the time that I succeeded was the fastest that I completed doing everything. Possibly there is a time factor.

Good luck, Nancy

HI Mary......... smile

Nancy could well be right about the approach to this and because you can do things in different order, there are lots of variables to the puzzle. I was stuck here for a long time. Last night I remembered that the second or third time I played the game, I made a check list of the moves I made to get through this. I dug it out of my notes last night, for what it may be worth to you, as follows:

1. open slider
2. enter
3. shut slider
4. get clothes/shut door
5. "examine" clothes, key will drop out
6. return clothes
7. find wallet
8. "examine" wallet (believe the contents stay in your inventory.)
9. get chart under pillow
10. put chart back
11. get Mickey Finn vial
12. put vial back
13. get Bible
14. Don't put Bible back
15. get in the closet
16. phone rings and Slade comes to answer
17. As soon as he comes to answer go to bathroom.
18. Search Slade's jacket behind door.
19. put it back.
20. move shower curtain
21. get behind it in tub
22. wait there till Slade goes back to kitchen, you will hear the television come on.
23. get out and go to bedroom and use the handcuff key (from Slades' jacket) to take the suitcase on the bed.
24. Don't try to go out the door to escape...go back to Tex's office. Be quick!

This worked for me, Mary, but I still had to go through the steps outlined here several times. Save your game as often as possible. smile

Love, Witchen =O) smile

SUCCESS! I finally didn't get shot dead in the closet. I tried all different combinations of actions until I hit upon the solution for me: I didn't pick up the letter chart. I don't know why that would make a difference, but it did.
Now I'm in the bathroom hiding out. Well, at least I'm making progress!
