Blue squares:     Take the elements from top and place them on the squares below to make new elements (place on green squares in top middle).

Earth + fire = lava

Air + earth = desert

Air + fire = energy

Middle squares:    Take results of the element combination from top green squares and combine them to make another climactic change.

Desert + energy = dust cloud.

Energy + lava = eruption.

Red squares:

Dust cloud + eruption = Volcanic winter.

See what is on Soren's tablet:

Discover the secret of the ship's wheel:

Go back to the dock and the ship.

Talk to Elisabet. She says she will fix what she did about her festival financial problems. She is healing now.

Original wheel:    Go to the helm by the wheelhouse.

Look close at the wheel.

Wheel word match:    Now that all 10 decoration pieces are collected; do the wheel puzzle.

Match the images to create a single compound word for each pair.

Turn the wheel and get access to other words that will match the outer disks.

Move-click the matching disk close to the matched word.

The sailor dictionary seen after finishing the touch screen puzzle at the cultural center has some of the words.

The center part opens. Take the fixed locator.

Figure out the sounding depths numbers:

From Magnus diary notes on his captain's desk, we know that 86 from the crow's nest is the total number.

We need 4 numbers that will add to get 86. One of them - 14 was seen after the pins-map puzzle at the captain's room.

Tide and barnacles:    Remember that Magnus made a comment that he needs something to remove barnacles.

Go back to Missti Skip and check the tide. It is high.

Go up the stairs to sleep and the next time, check to see if the tide is low.

Look for barnacles:    Go to the dinghy at the dock.

See barnacles on the posts left of the dinghy.

Use the hook on the barnacles - 26.

Tidal depth charts:    Go back up to the wheelhouse of the ship.

Look close at the left tidal chart for 1784.

Nancy says she has 2 numbers now: 14 and 26. Need 2 more numbers to make 86.

Place the fixed locator on the chart.

Move it around to place 14 and 26 in 2 of the circles. See if all 4 numbers in the circles total to 86.

The numbers are: 14, 26, 35 and 11.

Elisabet's song:    Exit the wheel house and hear Elisabet sing.

Talk to Elisabet about the song. It's an old family song her mother sang to her.

Find out the importance of the captain's bed frame:

Go to the captain's quarters. Look close at and click the bed frame.

Venn diagram:    Place the numbers so that the total shown in the overlapping sections is the sum of those circles' individual numbers.

If correct, the rings are grayed out.

A drawer is pulled out. Take the sketch pieces.

Dog bed-kennel:    Remember that Magnus commented about the dog kennel at the ship.

Examine the dog bed at the corner. Take the tiny key under the cushion.

Gear lock:    The panel opens. Some of the gears are missing.

Use the wooden gear taken from the crow's nest, metal disk Gunnar uses as coaster and and carved star from the langspil on the machinery.

More parts are needed.

Escape the bilge:

Exit the secret room. See the bilge cover is opened. Look close at the bilge. You cannot move away from here.

Nancy is pushed down into the bilge and grate closes. The water is rising.

Adjust the bilge pump:   

Recreate the numbers written in the corner on the big dial - 15-21-21 for amateur and 19-18-20 for master level.

Turn the dotted circles to change the numbers in the corners. The sums are seen on the bottom dial.

Amateur Master

The pump took care of the water but the grill is still down. Nancy cries help. Elisabet arrives and pulls her up.

At the deck, Elisabet says she heard a boat leave but helped Nancy first.

She gives a metal crank that the person dropped.

Talk to people:

Gunnar:    Go the pub at Missti Skip. Talk to Gunnar.

He doesn't know where Dagny is. He took the dinghy out looking for the treasure.

Gunnar:    Go back to the Missti Skip and see Elisabet throwing Gunnar out of the building.

Elisabet:    Talk to Elisabet at the ship. Gunnar says some hurtful things about Magnus and Elisabet.

Gunnar:    Go back to the Missti Skip. Talk to Gunnar standing in front of the pub entryway. He wants a box from the pub.

Enter the pub and go to Gunnar's corner. Take the box behind the large metal shield.

Open the red 1692 soap box. See a picture of a young woman. Nancy says she looks like her.

Read the newspaper clipping inside the box. The tragic drowning of Gunnar's wife Edda Snorisdottir and his daughter Edda is reported. Gunnar was piloting the dinghy. Read the card sent by Edda to Gunnar.

Give the box to Gunnar. He regrets what he has done and will apologize to Elisabet. He wants you to return when the tide changes and he will give you what he has.

Sleep:    Check the tide on the sign by the stairs. It's low. Go upstairs to rest. The tide is now high.

Gunnar:    Go to the pub and talk to Gunnar in his usual place. He gives the last of the sketch pieces.

Figure out what the sketches create:

Take the snowmobile to Magnus' cabin at left on the road.

Ned:    Get a cellphone call from Ned. That was very sweet. Say "I love you too, Ned."

If you tell Ned you love him, you will get an award.

Footlocker:    Open the footlocker and look close at the sketch taped on the lid.

Sketch pieces:    Using the sketch pieces seen at right and was taken from the crow's nest of the ship; arrange the overlapping pieces to make a full image.

Nancy recognizes it as a mosaic at the lighthouse.

Elisabet:    Exit the cabin and see Elisabet on a sled.

Follow up on the image created by the sketch pieces:

Go back to town. Take the dinghy to the lighthouse. If it is low tide, the dock cannot be reached. Go back to the Missti Skip and rest.

Climb up to the top of the lighthouse.

Find Dagny:

Hear footsteps. Dagny wants to explain her actions in town.

At the heater. Dagny describes why she faked the footsteps and her disappearance. She wanted time to crack the case. The whole ship is the map and she needs the key. She think Nancy knows the key. She gives a lion token.


Go back to the ship and Nancy decides to find out what is in the closet beside Elisabet.

Open the closet even though Elisabet stops you. Out comes Tumi, Magnus' dog.

She took Tumi during the festival so that Magnus will look for the dog and also Elisabet.

She gives the sheet music of the family's love song to the treasure.

Dog chew bone:    Look inside the closet and take the rawhide dog bone. It is a hiding place.

Use the tiny key taken from Tumi's kennel on the hole. Turn the key.

Read Magnus' note about the chart. The treasure is in the ice cave but needs Lawrence's journal to access it.

He describes the maze steps to do but need more.

Figure out what the token from Dagny is for:

Go to the figurehead at the bow of the ship. Look close at the panel on its back.

Lion heads:    Drop the token in the slots to turn all the lion heads upright.

Insert the token on the slots at: left, middle, middle, right middle, middle, middle.

Take the wooden wheel.

Rebuild the mechanical contraption in the hold:

Go back to the gear panel in the secret room.

Dagny:    On the way get a call from Dagny. She knows it is Nancy that took something from her luggage.

Place the wooden wheel on the gear panel at the door of the secret room.

Use the metal crank on the left gear. A compartment is raised up and reveals an ancient box.

Open the right side of the box:

Open the left side and see a sliding piece is missing.

Open the right side and see a puzzle.

Box-shapes pattern puzzle:    Arrange the pieces so that every row and column has one of each design.

Review the clue at middle right in Magnus' notes in inventory. "Intricate moving box pattern requires one of each shape in each row and column with no shapes repeating. Can place different pieces over board designs if the piece's design fully covers the board design under it."

Place the symbols that are already shown on the gameplay squares - one per row or column.

Then fill the large symbols with large pieces to cover them. From there deduce the rest.

Amateur Master

Contents:    Read the letter-confession of Captain Lawrence to his daughter. Lawrence became a pirate under John North. Later, he was North's navigator.

Click on the side of the last page to read a torn page titled - The Words I Couldn't Keep.

Fill in the numbers missing in each triangle that has the most preset numbers already.

Then work from there. This puzzle is similar to sudoku.

Lights turns on at the end when that row is correctly filled.

Take and read the journal page.

Discover the importance of the music box:

After reading the pages of the journal, go back to town and ride the snowmobile to Magnus' cabin.

Now that Elisabet gave you the sheet music of the family's love song, open the music box in the footlocker.

Use the sheet music on the box.

Review the Music Book taken from the lobby of the Missti Skip.

Arrange the tines to correctly play the song. Take a set of tines and move it to the correct place.

Make a trial run to see the sequence of the tines played first and the number of bumps on the roller (for example G is played 4 times). Then arrange the tines.

Pull the lever to start the music. If correctly done, the whole piece is played.

The drawer opens. Take the fish wooden tile and journal pages. Read how Lawrence and North got the ship at Cape Town. The pages are automatically added to Lawrence journal.
