    How do I open the study or whatever it is upstairs? I cannot make the other gargoyle thing light up.

  • Ashlynn

    How do I unlock the downstairs wooden lock?

  • Winnie4

    Maybe I'm slow but all I have is a tuning fork, fish bowl, matches, and one piece of torn paper I have no clue where to go from here….

    • Tabby

      The tuning fork is to unlock the outside shed door…make sure you pick up a log out there. I Don't want to ruin the fun but my advice to you is to touch everything and try to remember the items in each room. Stick with it…you'll get it!

    • Gmc

      Go outside with the tuning fork and click the ear hearing piece on the shack wall.

  • LeeAnne

    I'm completely stuck, it's annoying me now, i've done the chess piece, got the falcon (that i havn't got a clue what to do with), can't find any more keys to the stairs or the other door by the stairs, clock doesn't work, nor the colours on the globe, can't find the key for the tree stump, there's no clues to any of it.
    RellaT what's that about a dog ? omg !

    • Disappointed

      I have completed the game and am disappointed that it ended so quickly. LeeAnne, the falcons have to be arranged in the same order of the picture of the car in the bedroom. The wheels will give you the pattern. The globe spells LOVE which you can find the colors of the letters on the refrigerator .

  • RellaT

    Someone please help…….Im to the point of figuring out the colors on a globe. But I see Lee and Cinderz discussing a wooden box thats to be thrown in the fire. What do you get from that process…..(box in fire and then water to extinguish?)

    • Lee

      You get a weight from throwing the wooden box in the fire (but extinguish the fire before getting it)…The weight is put on the scale in the study.

  • RellaT

    Someone please help…….Im to the point of figuring out the colors on a globe. But I see Lee and Cinderz discussing a wooden box thats to be thrown in the fire. What do you get from that process…..(box in fire and then water to extinguish?)

    Also if the color code is in the study…..does it have to do with the dog Daisy?

  • RellaT

    Where do I get the wooden boX?

  • Lee

    Cinder, throw the wooden box in the fire and then douse the fire with water in the fish bowl.

  • Lee

    The plug is in the clock…In order for the clock to work you have to open the well-like object out in the yard with the rod from under the locked stair. Then apply the combination found in the trunk in the attic to see the light rays focused on 5 & 8. Then set the clock for 8:25…

  • Lee

    Where do you find the colors for the globe???

  • karen

    How do you open the tree stump?

    • mart2015

      First you have to open the stairs, the key is in the study room upstairs, you have to find the fuse first to open the doors of the study can find the fuse under the falcons ( car picture on the wall of first room upstairs give you an answer).

  • Roquemac

    The stone table below the tree stump tells how to set the hands on the clock in the dining room where the gum-ball machine is.

  • girly07

    I dont know about other people but the big hand on eight and little hand on four or five did not work for me when i tried it

    • sam79

      have u tried the little hand on the eight and then big hand on five

    • Gmc

      it’s 8:25

  • Vicki24

    Hi did the time you said on the clock but nothing happened any ideas?

  • Sam79

    Hi firstly look under the bed and get the missing chess piece that will give u a key which unlocks the door upstairs. Then inside the big toy box which u use a blue butterfly jewel collected from a picture in a bedroom to open, get the magnet and use this when u pull the carpet back in the hall.

    Put the clock hands so the big hand points to 8 and the little hand points to either 4 or 5 and that will give u the plug for the bath.

    Fill the bath and put ya goldfish in the water I’m stuck after this so if u get far please help

    • enjoylife293

      Hey sam79 I tried putting the big hand to the 8 and the small hand on the 4 and then the 5 and nothing happened. Now I am puzzled
