For the clock go to the clock in the hall which has lions all around it. When you stand on it and have the clock face directly in front of you, you have to turn the hands to the correct time. Look at the riddle. There is a beaker half full. that beaker is past the apple core, and the apple has been eaten, or in the past tense it's been ate. So that gives you Half Past Eight.

By mentioning the spider I assume you mean the Peacock puzzle that is contained in the same room? If so the answer to that is above.

Norya, to do the game properly I wouldn't worry to much about the wheel house at the top of the stairs just yet. Turn your attention to the locked door with the dial which is the first door on the right that you come too when going through the double doors. From this it is obvious that you need a combination. Try talking to Popov and learn about ESP. Using her cards, test the guests to find out which one has the best ESP rating. They should be able to tell you the combination to the door. Once you know the combination go to the door. Now I must emphasise that the combination is not enough, you have to turn the dial in the right directions. This is where you have to cheat as there is no information available to suggest how you turn it. For this reason click the word Cluedo in the bottom right hand corner of the screen three times and that should give you the answer.

Robin, from what I can remember so long as you have the red beams coming from the lions eyes then everything that should happen has happened. Follow the Red beams to a small statue on the other side of the room and select Scarletts Jewel. As for the pieces, when you click on the eyes they should come out and float to the ground. Then you turn the foot. When you click on the nose it should make a puffing noise come out and float to the ground. Then clicking the ears will make them float to the ground as well. That is when you should have the beams.

Sorry Norya, got the wrong end of the stick. Here is how you get into the Wheel House.

1. After masque is killed the puzzle box is left on the floor, but you can't touch it. Go to the door that Green took Masque through. Once through the door turn right. To get through the door use the following combination.

Turn dial clockwise to 31 and stop. Turn dial anti-clockwise to 12 passing 31 and stop. Turn clockwise to 38 and stop. Then click handle.

2. Head towards shelves and pick up gloves. Then turn right, open the chest and remove the gear. Then head back to the Puzzle Box and pick it up using the gloves. NOTE: You'll also see a small pin in your inventory bar.

3. Go to Sabata, then Urfe. Ask him to show you a trick. Then head back to Sabata and ask to show him the trick. He will give you a drawing. Look at the drawing and then head to Mrs White. Pick up the two pins from the broken vase off the floor.

4. Head to the Wheel House (that room at the top of the stairs).

5. Go to the Inventory Bar and click the pin to the immediate left of the puzzle box. Then click the puzzle box with it. You should now get a large version of the puzzle box on screen.

6. Select the same pin again and click on the puzzle box. Remove the piece of paper and then select the pin on the far left and click the puzzle box. Then using the remaining pin click the puzzle box again. remove crank from puzzle box. Then click the screen when you get the yellow arrow pointing right. Select crank and open door.
