OK...I KNOW I got all the clues, however, I can't get the coffin for Plum's jewel to open. I get the star, but it doesn't open.

Did I miss something?

Help...Our game will not run after the boat docks the game will lock up. We have returned it twice. Has anyone else had this problem?

Eben Moore - 12:19pm Nov 29, 1999 PST(#185 of 4060)

Help. Now I'm having an impossible time figuring out how to get White's gem from the skeleton drawer. Anyone with hints. Also, that maze is driving me crazy!!!! Eben

Jennifer Reposh - 07:59pm Nov 29, 1999 PST(#186 of 4060)

Okay, I have gotten all but one gem. Of course, I still CANNOT get Plum hypnotized. Is the pendant supposed to be in front of his face? Do I have to swing the pendant lower and then raise it? PLEASE HELP!!! I have been stuck on this way too long! I have tried everything everyone has told me. I just can't get it working. HELP!

HI .. this is really embarrassing - I just started the game a week ago and can't even get past the beginning. I seem to be stuck on the boat and nothing is happening. I have spoken to everyone - can't get the door to unlock and none of the characters have anything new to offer. I can't even pick up the puzzle box. Help.... thanks.

Eben Moore - 10:25pm Nov 29, 1999 PST(#188 of 4060)

Hey, can anyone help me figure out what i'm supposed to do with the jewels and the coffin? Is there a specific order that I'm supposed to place them? Is each symbol related to a different characters gem? Help!

Lauren Geller - 09:57am Nov 30, 1999 PST(#189 of 4060)

Does anyone know if there are any websites with hints or anything. I am on the boat and have just opened the door with the New Years Eve combination, I have spoke to everyone and do not know what to do next. If anyone know of any hint guides could you email me at

Thanks very much!

A.A., you must click in a star pattern(just like you would draw it on paper), start on the top right section.

Jennifer, keep trying to get the pendant swinging real good...then click once and leave it alone-it should do the rest. have you hypnotized anyone else yet?

D., before you get the box you need something. interview scarlet, listen carefully....does she "SEE" anything?

Eben, yes the symbols are related! you should have a piece of paper in your inventory that coincides witht the jems. try the process of elimination. good luck this is a tough one!

Lauren, looks like you are stuck with us....havent found a place on the web for hints. did you talk to scarlet? right now you should be looking for "someone" on the boat!

Lauren Geller - 12:02pm Nov 30, 1999 PST(#191 of 4060)

skirvin, I have talked to Scarlet and opened the combo door then talked the green, what else should I do? Thanks

Jennifer Reposh - 04:10pm Nov 30, 1999 PST(#192 of 4060)

I have tried to hypnotize Kell, but my pendant keeps disappearing. That is why I went to Plum. Do I need to have the pendant in front of his face or off to the side? I can get it swinging, but nothing happens, that is why I want to know where I should have the pendant. THANKS!!!!!!!


Christine Z. - 04:53pm Nov 30, 1999 PST(#193 of 4060)

I feel like and idiot. I have been playing for 5 days now and I cannot even get past the beginning. I went into the room with the combination door lock and took the gear and the gloves. I see a hook and a wrench, but I can not seem to pick them up. Also, I go to the top of the stairs but I am unable to open the door. I am totally stuck. I have tried everything I can think of. Someone please tell me what to do before I go nuts. Thanks.

Deborah D - 06:47pm Nov 30, 1999 PST(#194 of 4060)

If you have the gear and the gloves, you still need to get some artifacts which will help you open the puzzle box.

Have you gotten Sabata to draw you a picture yet? If you have, and what was pictured occurred, then take a close look at the debris for those artifacts.

Once you have those, you can use them with the puzzle box to open it up.
