Hi Marian and MaG - I'm baack!! wave2

Started this game last night. Have solved 3 puzzles and opened one door. I have two puzzles to solve, both giving me trouble. One is (I guess) the slider puzzle. It says that I've seen a similar sketch or something but I have not. I may be able to get this puzzle once I know what it is supposed to look like. We'll see.

But for now, I really need some help on the word cypher puzzle in The Main Sitting Room. I am really not good at these. I've been trying some things but need help. I know there are hint/solution walkthroughs but IF there is some type of hint that can be given, you know I'd appreciate it. Once I start looking at the walkthrough, it's all over. yes

Thanks!

The recognizing nudge for me are the middle and rightmost squares of the bottom row.
They look familiar. Then I remembered where I saw those "parts" in a picture.

If you want the location of that sketch, I can be specific.

Looks like a dollar sign which I have been able to make moving the squares but didn't know where to place it or what to do with the rest of the squares. The only place I see a dollar sign is on the map (just paid attention to it now, even though I saw it before). Is that the sketch?

Is there anything you can tell me about the word puzzle?

Thanks!

Yes - that's the sketch. The main page has the sketch.

As for the word puzzle - the hint for that is taken after the slider puzzle is solved. Good luck.

It might help if you finish the museum first before you proceed.

OK, thanks. Working on it but it's bed time. Work tomorrow after a nice week off. Can get the dollar sign but not the rest. I wish it did not reset on exiting the puzzle. A reset button would be better if you wanted to start over. I don't, but I'll have to.

There isn't anything else I can do in the museum (at this time) that I can see, other than this slider puzzle. I know the map shows three more red x's though.

joy Whoo Hoo!! Not bragging or anything, but I got the slider and then the word cypher.

Ok, that being said, I'll probably be back soon looking for help. wave2

I think I need your guidance again MaG.

On the 2nd floor west corridor, there is a door with red laser bars across it and a keypad for a 4 digit code. The panel opens to reveal green, blue, red, and yellow wires. If these wires are supposed to be giving me a clue, I'm not seeing it.

Other unsolved puzzles are: the workshop (blocked door), the winter garden (need an item), game room (need a card as well as a code), blue bedroom (need item), library (need item), loft (need item).

I have a small gold key and a triple key unused in my inventory.

I've already solved 3 of the puzzles by luck/trial and error. One of them I was still trying to figure out when it solved and I think I found the clue later; one was a 3 digit code that I just entered number until I got it - never found a clue, the other was the Polybius square. No idea what that is - just turned knobs until I got it right. I'd rather be solving them because I know what I'm doing but...

Laser door: Look at the individual wires. If you stare long enough - you'll see the clue. wink

Workshop: Is this a safe? There are 3 of them.

Winter garden: I think the item you need is in the snookers safe.

Game room: Open the yellow room and you will get the item and clue.

Blue bedroom: Get the item from violet bedroom.

Loft: There are 2 safes. You don't need items for them. Straight puzzles.

Gold key: Use it in Violet bedroom.

Triple keys: Collect all 4 of them.

Aye!

I'll stare at the wires some more then. woozy Seems like this is the one I need to get to move along.

The workshop is a door.

Don't think I've gotten into any yellow or violet rooms yet.

The one puzzle in the loft seems to need a handle or something. I did the other one.

Thanks MaG. I will let you know how it goes.

One colored wire at a time. Maybe it will help if you draw-copy the wire.

----------------

Are you trying to enter the workshop? If so, you need items for the keypad.

--------
Loft: One is a chess board and the other is made up of pipes. Which one?

Staring at the wires helped MaG. I did see the numbers. That got me into the yellow room.

I've been in the workshop and solved two puzzles. There is a door with letters on it that says "blocked" when I click anywhere on it. I'm sure I just haven't found something I need for it. I think a card.

I found the lever for the loft puzzle. It was in the puzzle in the game room. Is that what it is? A chess board? 6 squares by 6 squares. I believe I am supposed to press one square down per row and column with none of them in a row/column/diagonal with another. Can't get it tonight. Hopefully tomorrow.

Great on the wires. yay

Workshop: I think the card you need is the chip card taken from the Blue Bedroom puzzle.

Loft: This is the queen puzzle. Think queen movement on the chessboard.

luck

Thanks.

MaG - I used an excel spreadsheet to figure out the chess puzzle and then solved it in the game. I had done the same with the 15's puzzle (where you had to total 15 across, up/down, and diagonal) although that one was worse because you had to figure out how to move the numbers around once you knew them.

I am at the last puzzle in the secret room. I have not seen a clue. I went around the mansion a couple times again looking but not seeing anything. I have started entering numbers trying to hit it but with a four digit code this will take forever. It pains me to ask, where do I find the clue?

duh

Hi Marian wave

Thanks for the info. I hope these are not the 8's on the doors with some lines darkened. I have looked at them numerous times already also.

I will go take a look.

Yep, that was them. I had already drawn them but didn't really put them all together for a good study. I re-drew them and got it this time.

Thanks for your help Marian and MaG!

It was a fun game. ALMOST not too challenging for me lol

In Gremlin's review, he says he only spent a few hours on the game plus the time for the slider puzzle. What?? I spent 24 hours playing this!

Well done oldbroad. One of my favourite older games which I've played many times.
