@ Jaqc1: did you try the savegames - see reaction 3 on page 1?

Or give Sierramindy's solution a try:
About the tilting board puzzle, I'm not sure this is what you are supposed to do, but I just tilted that little board in the lower right corner all the way to the right side and the ball just went flying off to the right completely off the screen. I never did get to move it down to the bottom of the board, but it solved the puzzle ... or did it? Anyway, I was able to move along

If both don't work for you, you'll have to solve this on your own...
What worked for me was taking a lot of time between clicks on the arrowbuttons, as there is a kind of delayed reaction. That was the only way I could control the speed and direction of the ball

@ Bri - Nice work, this really is a nasty one!!

cry Hi, I was feeling really good about this game untill now. I'm up to the part were I have to place the gems in the head, but I do not have the aquamarine, according to the WT, I need to take the aqua out of the horned skull, I cannot remember doing it earlier, but Diamon will not do anything now to get it.Have I missed something? Thank you.

Did you get the horned skull out of the sarcophagus near the scorpions? Combine pry-bar with this skull in inventory and you'll get your aquamarine

I went back could not find the aquamarine, so I went back to a save and started again. Funny I didn't have the aqua and yet it wasn't there to pick up, interesting anyway I'm fighting a monster right now so wish me luck. Thanks. broccoli

Stuck in the dungeon. Put the seal in the raised platform, but can't get the figures to line up. Would somebody have a save after the puzzle? Thanks
I finally got the puzzle I won't need the save afterall.

I went into my name and there isn't any local settings. I haven't had any trouble with other games. I don't know why it isn't there. The saves are somewhere.

Maybe it's hidden - try this, see if it works:
From Windows Explorer choose "Tools" from the menu, then "Folder Options" then click the middle tab "View". You may have to scroll down a bit, but look for "Show Hidden Files and Folders" and highlight the button.

I have all the ingredients that are in the recipe, but I don't know how to put them together.

insane Hi, sierramindy,
After a dozen or more tries on my own, I have tried your suggestion...
but at what point do you begin the right side tilting???
This one is a hardwall

Hi kat,

Have you checked the Big Fish walkthrough HERE? It shows the correct route to take. It says that you can watch the degree of tilt in the inset box at bottom right of the game screen. Does that help? think

Talked hubby into doing this one for me,
whew...glad to get past that one.

Now, as Mary, I'm stuck trying to remove the
lockpick from the Limo.
Figured out to use the soap,
but can't seem to find the right hot-spot. headscratch
