Tips and Tricks for Hidden Mysteries: Buckingham Palace ™

[Post New]by bfgErie on Nov 4, 08 10:33 AM
Hint Credits – An interesting twist on hints, you can earn hint five hint credits for each of the two crowns found in every scene. Credits can be spent to get either a silhouette of an object on your list (1 credit), show you the exact picture of an object (3 credits) or point out where the object is in a scene (5 credits).

Relaxed Mode/Timed Mode - When you start the game, you are asked if you would like to play in Relaxed Mode or Timed Mode. If you select Timed Mode, you will have twenty minutes to locate all of the objects in each scene. Select Relaxed Mode if you would like to play without the timer.

Random Clicks – In Timed Mode, clicking on objects not on your list too often will result in the loss of thirty seconds off the clock. In Relaxed Mode, there is no penalty at all for random clicking.

These a just a few tips that will help when you are playing Hidden Mysteries: Buckingham Palace. If you have any tips to share, please post them in this thread.

If you click multiple times on one of the hidden crowns, you get multiple hint points.

I love being a member of the Bid Fish Club. This game was a good evenings enterinment and worth the 7 dollars I paid. I am much more excited about the new 7 wonders. I will be happy to do trial runs for HO and match threes. The only time I was asked ir was for a game I don't play. But try me again O'Great Fish S

I am at the same spot and all I have in my inventory is a hammer and a "jewel" I think, I used the riding whip and no longer have anything else. Any idea of how to open the box? thanks

I dont see a crack opposite the jewel box. This is way too frustrating and usually I have no problems with these games. I dont think I will buy it.

To say that I am a little pissed is to say the least. I played the first 60 minutes free, got frustrated at how long it took to get the jewel out of the crack. Can anybody tell me an easy way or does it take everybody a long time? I obtained 2 more jewels and then my time was up. Thought, I think I will buy the game because I won't have to get by the riding crop and jewel in the wall again. How wrong was I, when the purchased game came up, I was back at the wall with the riding crop and jewel again. I have been now attempting for an hour to get the jewel out of the wall with the riding crop and still it will not come out. I feel like asking for my money back on the game because that is how frustrated I am at this point. Can anybody tell me the easy way to get the jewel out of the wall with the riding crop, I have tried everything. Thanks.

Sorry you are having trouble. Once you pick up the riding crop from your inventory, ignore it. When your cursor is in the correct position, click.

I am at the same place and decided I will NOT purchase this game unless they put in a hint or maybe when you are stuck a way out!

Hi I am stuck in the garden trying to get the bluejay out of its nest. I am wondering if there is a glitch in the game. Has anyone figured this part out? Are you stuck as well? I will conact tech support to see if indeed it is a glitch.

I do enjoy these games. Really love the hidden picture games.

I'm having the same problem in the garden. Bird feeder is hung, but bird needs "more incentive". Where and what is it? Please post if you find it's a glitch.

You are right - a jewel does go on it

On the wall opposite the box - there is a small crack running lengthwise - put your riding crop in here - this will release a geode (I think that is the spelling) - It is a plain-looking rock which has crystals inside

The geode will go into your inventory window - work in the inventory window - pick up the hammer and place it on the geoid - this will crack it open - a purple gem will now be in your inventory window

Go to the box - put glue in the space for the gem - then put the gem on it - & presto you have solved the puzzle

Hope that helps - it can be frustrating
