Track down the key to the show poster's display box:

Go outside to the poster display close to the entrance of the museum.

Use the small key taken from the triangular vine puzzle at Tartarus on the display box.

She will connect with the authorities.

Authentication database:    Go to the computer in the office.

Open the authentication database. Enter Calliope as password. Press enter key.

To test gold, an unglazed pottery is needed. Rub the pottery on gold. If real, gold will rub on pottery, if fake, black mark.

To test for pottery, blacklight is needed.

To test for gemstones, a spectroscope is needed. The spectroscope was taken from the base of the tree by Charon's boat dock already.

Verify authenticity of the gold chain link necklace:

Get unglazed pottery:    Go to the workshop.

Go to the table left of the kiln. Take shard of pottery from the bottom shelf of the table.

Go back to the museum and the coins and jewelry display.

Look close at the necklace in the broken case.

Use the shard on necklace. There is a black mark - it's a fake.

Confirm if the emerald earrings are real:

Open the display left of the coins. Take the emerald earring under the gold wreath.

Use the spectroscope on the emerald. Nancy says the spectrum reading is not like that. It is a fake.

Melina:    Call Melina and she states that Nancy is wrong. She changed her tune. Something is wrong. She sounds scared.

Figure out who's behind the fakes:

Niobe:    Go to the workshop and talk to Niobe. She maintains she is keeping the real jewelries she copied.

Hardy Boys:    Call the Hardy boys. Talk about Niobe and Grigor's list. The boys wants Nancy to ask Thanos about Kronos.

Melina:    Call Melina. Melina tries to get Nancy to leave.

Thanos:    Ride the boat to the dock. Talk to Thanos. He scared Melina. He has friends in  the police. He is not afraid to be reported.

Ride the lift to the stage.

Hardy Boys:    Call the Hardy Boys and update them.

Open the letter box on Xiena's table

Go to the amphitheatre and the director's tent.

Grigor's notes states: The letters around the empty squares indicate which letters belong with what row or column. Place the letters into the squares in a continuous line alphabetically to unlock the box.

Click on an empty square. Then click on selected letter from left. That letter will be now entered in the blank square.

Start with the letter A already on the square.

Read the paper inside the box.

Learn that the activation code of the cage is 72914.

Amateur Master

Grigor:    Go backstage. Grigor is not here.

Read Grigor's tablet to see if there is anything new.

Read about the stagecraft people, Xenia's background and the casts' need for money.

More updates:    Call Melina and the Hardy Boys again.

Set up the light cues:

Xenia:    Go to the director's tent. Talk to Xenia. She wants Nancy to do the cue lights.

Ask about her dress and learn that it is a Niobe's original.

When told about the forgeries, Xenia went berserk and demands Melina's number.

Read the light cue guide that Xenia gave.

Select the Cue number. Read the description at bottom of the panel.

Look for that scene in the director's script.

Enter the light letter, the color of the arrows (shown by the first letter of the color) and the dimmer level (shown by number of dots above the color).

Press the "save cue" at bottom right when done.

Figure out what Grigor is up to (part 1):

See Grigor come up from Underworld on the lift. He is checking Greek vases.

The vases need to be tested.

Get blacklight:    Go to the workshop and then to the Cerberus by Charon's boat.

Look close at - click on the blacklight focused on the door. Nancy needs a tool.

Go back to the workshop and look for a tool.

Take the hex key beside the orange can on the work table at right (has to be triggered).

Go back to the blacklight by Cerberus. Use the hex key on the blacklight.

Easter egg:     Go to Charon. Use the blacklight on his lantern to get an Easter egg.

Test the vases:    Go back to the museum.

Use the black light on the vases. The vase with the 4 women is fake.

Grigor:    Go backstage and talk to Grigor about the swapped copies.

Thanos is the problem now - not Grigor. Thanos is always watching.

Figure out who is behind the fakes:

Go to the workshop via the museum entrance.

Hear an upset Niobe and a threatening Thanos. Niobe breaks the pots she created. Thanos leaves.

Automatically talk to Niobe. It is not about money but about survival. Thanos knows that Nancy knows about the forgeries.

The real art will be taken before the show is over.

Niobe left something that will help Nancy but she dropped it on stage.

See what Niobe left on stage:

Go to the stage. Check the stool behind the 2 stone column left of the lift door.

Pick up the narcissus flower. Take the key inside the flower.

Thanos walks towards Nancy. Nancy falls down the lift. <Evil laugh>.

Escape the cage:

Nancy wakes up in the cage at Tartarus.

Grigor walks in and Nancy asks him for help. Learn that he was offered 10 grand per week to do this production. The money was too good.

Grigor and Niobe are both in over their head. He doesn't want to be seen helping Nancy.

Nancy has to escape the cage on her own. Grigor left something on the boatman's hand.

Black panel:    Turn around and examine the black panel on right wall.

Use Niobe's key from the flower to open the black panel.

Free spider from the web:

Make a path for the red spider on the web above to get to the wheel at the bottom.

Click-hold the black tiles to move left or right to make a path.

Moving the tiles also turns the spider web made up of green and yellow ring.

Select the arrangement that will make a path on the 2 rings.

As shown by the yellow number on the left and green number on the right; the number of tiles on the right-green should be 7 and the number of tiles on the orange left side should be 9.

Pull the lever to drop the spider. The cage is opened.

Workshop:    Go back to the workshop. It is locked.

Tartarus:    Go to Tartarus and to the Fire room.

Seeds panel:    Check the panel right of the door. Nancy says she need to find the missing seeds.

Exit the Fire room.

Trap Thanos:

See Thanos walking towards you through the cage path.

Keypad:    Use the keypad at left. Enter the activation code seen in Xenia's box: 72914.

Thanos is trapped. He says he is like the Cerberus that has 3 heads. He says he will not be caged for long.

Exit Tartarus.

Look around the judges thrones.

Find the judges eight stones:

Cage:    Go back to Tartarus. Thanos escaped!

Pick up the marbles from the ground close to the light fixture.

Figure out what's inside the 3 judges' trunk:

Scale puzzle:

Look close at the scale. This is the first line of Grigor's seed note.

Place the 8 marbles on the slot at left.

One of the marbles weigh more than the others. Find out which one.

There are only 2 tries.

Weigh 3 black and 3 whites on each pan.

Press the judge button.

If equal, weight the other kept 2 marbles.

If the 3 marbles are unequal. Weigh the heavy 3 marbles. Keep one of the marbles and weigh the other 2. If the 2 weighed stones are equal the third kept one is the heavy one.

Place the heavy marble on the slot at right.

The judges' trunk opens.

Letter:    The letter talks about Niobe and her debts; Grigor and his connections. Looks like Thanos and Xenia are in on this together. They have Niobe and Grigor controlled. They plan to place the missing items in Melina's office.

There's an empty box of Grigor's seal.

Blueprint:    Look at the plan of the item delivery during the show.

Judged:    Nancy is judged by one of those on the throne. He turns his head and hits Nancy with his spear.


Nancy wakes up chained. Xenia sitting on Persephone's throne says that she is the brains of the heist. Grigor will take the fall.

She alludes to Persephone becoming the Queen of Death but that she has always been the queen.

She raises the bridge and walks out. The bridge goes back down.

Escape the chains:

Look at the shackles on Nancy's ankles. Turn the rings and form words. Use the blood or red stains to help you.

Review Grigor's seed notes.

The colored circles indicate the colors of the adjoining tiles. All tiles must be filled.

- Tiles with one hint color mean all adjoining tiles are that color.

- All adjoining tiles must share a hint color.

- Continue working around the clues and empty tiles.

If you make 6 mistakes, the step you're standing on is removed and you fall in to the river of fire.

Fill up the empty spaces first.

Then fill up the ones with seeds but surrounded by a hint color.

The seed colors inside the hexagons are not important but the seed colors of the adjacent hexagons are.

Start with red seeds, then yellow, pink and lastly brown.

The door opens.
