Please check the thread 13th Skull ** FAQs ** Lots of SPOILERS But here's the relevant section:
My SCREWDRIVER won’t work on the PIANO/my KEYS won’t go in the CEMETERY GATE!
In older versions of the game, the game reads where you place your cursor, not where you place the tip of the screwdriver or key. While holding your tool focus on placing your cursor on the screw or keyhole. You will end up using your screwdriver or key about halfway down their bodies.

Hi Buffy! Welcome to the pond!! You have to beat Vinton at a game of checkers or hit "skip" (which will count as a win) to talk to him.

Get the birdcage from the balcony to capture the bird and bring him to the swamp.

It says to search the graveyard for clues, which I have, but I do not have another task popping up...am I missing something, or is it a glitch? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Hard to say exactly, Vee15, without knowing what you have already done in the graveyard. Did you check the walkthrough to see if you missed anything?

Hi blaize11! Welcome to the pond!
SPOILER:






The parrot is in the home of the guy that you deliver the gumbo to. Go to the left of the manor and past the cemetery. Good luck!

I'm having trouble trying to trim the weeds around the manor. I have garden shears. I am clicking with the clippers everywhere on the side of the manor close to the fountain and having no luck. Am I clipping in the wrong place?

Hi armadillogirl! You actually want to cut the flowers, and you want to cut them from slowest growing to fastest growing, so purple, white, orange. Some folks found if they turned off the custom cursor for this game they could move a little faster. You can also hit skip if they make you too crazy.

Can't seem to get that doggone coffin open. Tried the screwdriver, the hammer, and the shovel, but unless there's a really small gremlin holding it shut, I doubt the sleeping potion will help and I don't have much else in my inventory. Help?

I've hit a snag - a big one - in the graveyard, where you have to enter the 4 dates - birth, death, fire and re-build in order to get thru. I think I have 3 of them but the fax machine (which is supposed to provide the birth date) is bare. What have I done wrong. I tried every other combination, and one assumes that Phineas must have been born in 17 something, but nothing works.

ps I can't win that beastly draughts game either

Hi MorvaMarsh! Welcome to the forums! You should be able to find your answer in the thread 13th Skull ** FAQs ** Lots of SPOILERS.

Here's the relevant portion - sorry, it's the only known work around:
I’m using the HAMMER on the upside down COFFIN but it won’t open!
; with the HAMMER on the COFFIN – start over under a new player name and make sure you hammer the coffin as soon as you arrive in that scene, do not do anything else first.

Hi sedna2! Welcome to the pond! Sorry to tell you but you have to beat the guy at draughts (or checkers) to get the fax. The best tip I've seen on beating him is to keep your king line (the row closest to you) intact, don't move any of those pieces and he can't get kinged and will eventually give up. On the other hand, you can hit "skip" and it will count as a win. Good luck!
