I hit a stand still Marian.

MAYBE you can give me a push. If not I will look at the walkthrough. I cannot open the roll top part of the desk in the tower. I did open the drawer so I have the last doll puzzle drawing, however, I don't have the last doll. I also don't have a key for the chest in the hut. I've come up with this as a clue "spun to q will do"?? I have extra cotton. Also, I have a drawing of the clovers where you figure out the numbers that each clover represents (which I've done but haven't figured out where/how to use that information).

So, what I know I need but don't know which I need first to proceed, is a key for a chest, a code for the desk, and a doll.

If this information doesn't help you to give me a push, just say so. No problem!

Thanks.

The paper from the coffee table has the picture of the desk lock. The desk lock needs 5 letters.

If this makes no sense or it is of no help, please let me know.

I have that picture and I've been to the rock and seen the "N5" there. I've also looked at all 4 books referenced on that paper. The book Ersatz Quidnuncs is what I was hoping was the clue to the 5 needed letters. Following the instructions in that book using that title is where I came up with the "spun to q will do". That was the only thing I could think of to do with the information from that paper. I have also been going through the lock trying all possible combinations but needed a break from that. Am I overthinking something or just plain not seeing something?

Thanks.

I am going to give you a little bit from the walkthrough - hopefully this will help.

The paper from the coffee table has the picture of the desk lock.

The desk lock needs 5 letters. There are 4 books in the list and the drawing of the island with the N5 etched on it.

Each of the 4 books an has inscription on the inside cover. These are the clues to the letter.


If you need more:

Based on the etching on the rock in the island, one of the letters is N and it is in the 5th position.

Let's check the inscription in each book for the first 4 letters.

Looked at the first spoiler. I'll try to see if that helps me out. If not, I'll check the second spoiler.

Thanks Marian!!

Got it! I was on the right track, just didn't carry it through with using ALL the clues. Thank you again. That gave me a push to get me focusing on the right spot! I'll see how far I get before I'm stuck again. lol

Thanks Marian but I am fizzling out now on the game. I'm done for the night I guess.

I wasn't looking forward to another doll puzzle so I went to the hut and unlocked the chest then was put down in the lab by Fiona. I'm not to fond of being stuck in one small area of a game unable to wander if I need a break, and not sure I like the rocket or chemical stuff. It may just be that I'm tired. I've been in the game for more than 6 hours today with some breaks here and there to come to GB and check emails, etc., so we'll see how it goes tomorrow.

I kind of enjoyed the rocket and chemical stuff once I understood what I was supposed to be doing, but I did find it rather daunting at first. Take a nice break away from the game and see how you feel about it tomorrow. wave

I found this a rather strange game in some ways but was not sorry that I played it, as it was quite different and definitely had its moments.

I don't think that will help. Is there anything you can tell me to get me started?

Have you looked around the desk in the lab? Have you picked up the clipboard hanging on the wall to the left of the elements chart?

Yes and yes. I've also put the top of the rocket on and the fin or whatever it is called and played around with the wires. Where the 3 switches are, when I flip the first switch up, I get a green light. I've pushed the red button and blown up numerous times.

I cannot make sense of the launching notes or the chemical chart and don't see anything else to interact with, and this is causing me to become bored quickly, which is why I don't like being stuck in a small area. If I could go play games at the inn while thinking and inbetween trying stuff it would be better. frown

Thanks. This may be where I need the walkthrough. Let me know.

I believe you need to complete the chemical sorting to continue (you'll need the key that the chemicals are all blocking) I have found the walkthough here to be the best (it'll tell you which chemicals go to which bin) If you try that and still keep blowing up (which can happen if you bump a chemical, have the grabber in the wrong position or something along those lines) and need a video walkthough, I can point you to a couple

Thanks NDLVR. I have tried moving each of the chemicals that I can reach and have tried with different grabber openings but still keep blowing up. I will, however, try that again to make sure I have tried EACH option as I may not have done that.

Well, this is helping me to get somewhere NDLVR, so thank you again. Did I already mention though, that I'm finding this game tedious??

I followed a walkthrough for this part, I remember that much. I think I only blew up once or twice after that. I think the game allowed me to save every time I binned something correctly too, which made things easier.

Did you see my edit Marian? I'm trying to do it without the walkthrough but am blowing up quite a bit. Saving also!

I found this part of the game tedious, too. Not one of my favorite puzzles.

I finished the game. Thanks Marian and NDLVR for the pushes I needed!

One thing I didn't like about the game was having 4 doll puzzles and the seating arrangement puzzle which was the same type of puzzle. Nothing wrong with the puzzle, just too many times. Well, the 4th doll puzzle did not have to be completed in order to finish the game but being me, I felt compelled to go back in the game to do that last puzzle anyway rolleyes. I did NOT replay the chemical puzzle afterward though.

Some of the puzzles in this game I did not care for, but I did like the seating arrangement and doll puzzles.

Congratulations on finishing the game! bravo
