hello and welcome - your first post - WONDERFUL!!

hate to give you my bad habits but I just skipped this one - there are some styles am so terrible at.

at least you can then go forward in the game; however am sure someone will read this and tell you exactly what to do to reset.

not as much help as would like to be but will check in out for you nonetheless.

Happy gaming!!

Not all of the mini games can be reset, which is kinda frustrating! Perhaps you just mis-clicked!! I solved it with help from the guide.

I can't get this game to reset or skip. Once I tried it for a while I went to the strategy guide to get help but it is no longer in the original position! VERY FRUSTRATED! I can't move past this. Please help

I didn't follow the strategy guide on this puzzle, I just kept clicking until it finally worked, lol.

If you click on Gears, the owl (bottom left of the screen) you can skip the puzzles.

Good luck!

ohai....
It would be nice if Mad Head would put a reset switch on all their games.
Heck...It would be more than nice if ALL the devs put reset switches on all the games.....hint, hint, hint Big Fish Big People!

This game I found only succumbed to the patience of scattershot chaos technique.
but.....it does eventually turn to a very satisfying all zeros.

What ended up working for me is ... I went thru the strategy guide's answer ... then added the last click on G. That worked for me. This was after I closed and reopened the mini-game. Hope that works for you. Or I might have just got lucky. I didn't have the option to skip with the owl, not sure why.

If you change the difficulty to "easy" then the solution in the Strategy Guide works. Then go in and change your difficulty back to whatever you want it to be.

Just swimming by to say that mini games do have a skip button. Not Gears, the little owl helper, but a small icon at the left top of each mini game scene. I don't remember if this applies to all of the minis, forgive me about that, but I'm pretty sure it does to most of them. If someone wishes to skip one of course.

Thank you Sheilas2a. This did work, but I had to exit the entire game and go back in (same profile; just changed the difficulty).

So frustrating not to have a reset button.

Can't remember who said it above about the the little red circle in top left hand corner to skip the tick-tac-toe puzzle, but many many THANKS!! It was staring me in the face and I overlooked it. I thought I was going to jump off the roof until I found the red circle to skip the puzzle. Thanks again whoever reminded me of the red circle!!

Happy Gaming!!

Little button upper left as someone said does work. On easy, we couldn't get the strategy guide to work either. However, just by random clicking, I got the Xs in the upper rows, lower rows & center piece, I clicked the center piece & it went all Os. Stupid to pay for a collector's edition where the strategy guide doesn't work though.

Exit the game & restart it. The barrel will be reset. You don't have to start the game over. It will return to where you exited.
