Hellenistic Period 332-30 BC
Since there is a battle going on, the time machine will not go to this area, but gives a schematic view only. The object is to use the resources and blueprints from General Headquarters to get over to the fortified city and find the coins. You can read about the Hellenistic Period (332-30 BC) in display 9 of the museum.
From the General Headquarters, where decisions are made about utilizing the resources, put the axes with the lumbermen. Place the lumbermen on the trees, to get some logs. Put the logs in the mill. Place saws in the mill and then put the blueprints for the bridge in the mill. Move the bridge to connect with the little island. Place the woodcutters on both sets of trees on that island. Put the woodpiles in the mill. Put the blueprints for the ship in the mill. Put hammers and the blueprints for the battling ram on the ship. Place the ship near the iron ore mine.

Roman Period 30 BC – AD 330
Starting this section, you will be in the main room. In front of you will be a table with a round dish and to the left of that you will see a bench and past that a statue. Get a close up of the bench and look at the scroll. Back off and turn all the way around to your left. Go through the doorway and you will come to another doorway that will enter into a reddish room. Upon entering this room you will see a peacock painted on the wall above another long bench. Turn around and notice the tile floor.
There is a tile that resembles the picture on the scroll. Your cursor will change when you find that tile and you will be able to click on it. The tile will change color. Turn around and open the door of the birdcage. As you open the cage door the peacock picture will fade away. Open the cage door all the way and leave the room.
When you are back in the main room where you started, turn to your right this time about 90 degrees and go through this opposite doorway. Go forward through another doorway and you will be in a room with some large shelves that look like bunk beds. There is a little alcove near the floor with 12 holes in a row above it. Back away and turn to the wall with the peacock. Go closer and you will notice a basket of grain, plate, and a lever. Put 12 grains on the plate and pull the lever, which will empty the grains into the bird's mouth. Back off and go toward that little alcove area again. This time you will notice the holes are filled.

Medieval Kingdom of Cyprus 1191-1571
You come into this age facing an entrance to a walled city surrounded by the sea. On top of the entry is a framed stone carving Look close at the carving, a lion is seen. Enter the city. Let's take a tour and start searching for coins.
Turn right towards the columns. Look in the jug and pick up a coin. Turn left into the city and forward until the end. Turn left, forward across the fountain until the end and turn right. Forward until the dry fountain. Look closer on the dry fountain and pick up 5 coins. Take the upper right road, left on next road and then right. Enter brown house. Turn around and look inside one of the wooden cask by the door and pick up 4 coins. Take the upper left road and turn left. Take second road toward the city and get a close look at the camel. Check one of the jugs and pick up a coin. Go to the lower left road towards the wall of the city and go south. Take the first road towards the city proper and then the first left. Look at the palm tree. Pick up the coin inside the jug. Take the left road until you see the 3 horses. Pick up 2 coins from the saddlebag. Go back out of the city towards the wall enclosure and circle the perimeter until you reach the right wall enclosure. Take the second road from the corner tower and turn left and get a closer look at the church.
Checking the information on display 17 of the Museum, a legend was described about that for a brief period after midnight the lion opens its mouth and those daring to thrust their hand down its throat maybe lucky enough to secure a valuable treasure. Look close at the lion. Change your computer clock to 12 midnight. Wait for 15-20 minutes. It took me exactly 20 minutes. The lion’s eyes will flash. Another flash of light will come out when the lion opens his mouth. Take the coin from the mouth. WOW!
Ottoman Rule 1571 –1878
Arriving outside in the middle of a clear night, with stars twinkling bright in the night sky, turn around and enter the mansion. Based on the information from Display 18 of the museum, this must be the mansion of the famous Dragoman (interpreter) of Cyprus. You are in a courtyard, moon above and rooms on the left and right side. The rooms that can be entered on the left side are the green room, blue room, orange room and a yellow room. Each of these rooms has a cabinet and other furniture. The orange room has a picture of a man holding a paper. The yellow room has a clock with a picture of a girl. On the other side of the courtyard, there is the red room and the white room. Outside the rooms is a table with a telescope, compass and a star map. Looking through the telescope, you will see the night sky as it is seen from the naked eye while standing at the center of the courtyard.
Standing at the center of the courtyard, look above the entrance to the mansion and see a white cross at the intersection of 4 blocks of stone. Remembering the information from Display 18 in the museum, “in this mansion, the cross symbol with the abbreviated religious sign IC XC NI KA is found inscribed in various places.” Look down on the block of stones paving the courtyard and see 2 orange stones. A hotspot to the right and also below the left orange stone is seen. Click on both the hotspots. One is KA (above the stone) and the other XC (below). Click on them to light them up. Turning exactly 180 degrees from that spot and facing the left rooms, with the fourth arch from the end in the foreground, a hotspot is found on one of the stones close to the bottom of the screen. Click on it and click again on IC. Pan right and with the stairs at the center of the frame, look for a hotspot close to the bottom of the screen. Light up NI. Look at the 4 block of stones above the entryway and see that the inscription is now visible. Arrange the inscriptions to IC and XC on top and NI and KA at the bottom. The center white cross turns blue.
British Administration 1878 – 1960
You will start this section on the street with sounds of gunshots in the background. Turn to your left and find the hotspot below the Wanted poster. Pick up the matchbox and turn it over. Looks like a combination. Write it down since it may come in handy later. (35-25- 60-75) Turn and enter the library.
Go up the stairs and look at the notebook on the table. Use the pencil over that note to make it readable. The note tells you to identify yourself by transmitting your leader’s alias to H.Q. then the correct order for the combination will be sent to you. How do you find your leader's alias? Check in the museum. Go to the museum plan and read about the British Administration 1878-1960 in Display 19. It mentions the struggle Cyprus went through to become an independent republic and also gives the name George Givas (alias DI GENIS) as the leader. Go back to the game, turn about 90 degrees look up the stairs to the bookcases on the top level. Click on the hotspot and move the yellowish book to the right. Enter the secret room and you will find a telegraph machine and code. Type in the name DI GENIS using the code on the wall. As soon as you do that you will get the order of the combination (2 left, 3 right, 1 left, 4 right).
Exit this secret room and go down the stairs out to the main hallway. At the bottom of the stairs go forward into that first room where you will find a safe. With the numbers from the match box and the correct order from the telegraph message you will get 25 left, 60 right, 35 left, and 75 right.
This is not the combination, but the number of spaces you need to move the dial. There are a total of 100 spaces or numbers around the dial but 20 clicks, so each click is 5 numbers or spaces. With this the actual combination becomes 75 left, 35 right, 0 left, and 75 right. Open the safe with the handle and destroy the papers with the matches in the safe. Now you can collect your coins!
Republic of Cyprus 1960 – present day
At anytime during the game you can exit the time machine and try to leave your apartment, but you can't get very far because the gate is locked and out of order. Look through the keyhole of apartment #011. Interesting! Enter apartment #012 and notice all the piggybanks. Look through the telescope.
Turn to the left and click on that big freestanding closet. Bang away at it quickly with your fist until it moves all the way over to the left and stays there. Now you can enter apartment #011. You will see a table with laser lights positioned around it. When you try to move closer a huge crate will come down and cover it.
Turn around and solve that puzzle on the wall panel to raise the crate. The object of the puzzle is to select an icon (circles with lines) from #1 that when laid over the icon on side #2 at the same position produces an icon that will negate lines inside the circle. The end product should be a circle with no lines.
Go back to that table and you will be able to see 9 coins under a sealed cover. The object of the next puzzle is to light up all 9 lights to open that seal.
Here, we leave until you or we or somebody else solves this last puzzle. We hope that we have given you a head start so that the Museum of the History of Cypriot Coinage will have back the magnificent collection of coins that connects us to the early days of monetary history of a grand country.
