Hello!

I've come to a glitch and can't find a work-around. As soon as you win a game of Fanarona (sp?) with the Chief, the game locks up. He says something about thanks for ending the curse, here's the stone piece.....then no way to exit from the game board back to the Chief's hut. I tried to save and resume, but it took me back to the beginning of the Fanarona game. I played on from there and it locks up mid-game (it glitched so bad I had to reboot the 'puter). Any work-arounds or patches out there?

Thanks

Hi,
After the Chief gives you the stone a video should start. This seems to be a technical issue. (it's possible to save during the board game but your position on the board will not be saved). But in fact, what is left is the final video (very nice video!) so you have solved all the tasks.

Use the left mouse button only. Hold it down while turning in horizontal or vertical direction. In the water tower you might need to turn downwards for the arrow to appear where the ladder is.

But you're doing very good if you made it to the village

Just do what you would do if you were left alone in a remote village, waist deep in the snow. Try to find some people to talk to. There must be some people in those cottages...

Pratikm87,
They aren't deaf, just not really talkative
You can see that the dog is sick. Maybe if you do something about it they will be friendlier to you. You've pinched something from the station which might help now. Look around if there's anything around there to make it work

Do you mean the Fanorona in the Madagascar episode? (Anyway, this applies to Tablut as well in the Lapland part).
The rules are accessible from the menu which changes in the board game view and now you get an R button (for Rules).
If you have problem playing it you can set the difficulty level to Easy in the Main menu of the game, under Game options.
If this doesn't help check out the WALKTHROUGH topic for this game which contains suggestions where to find WTs.
But if you use the walkthroughs make sure to set difficulty level to Normal because those solutions will work only in that mode.

I love this game. Try to find the Inn where you'll find a girl and man. It's a couple of clicks forward and to the right. Down by the wood fence at the end of the city. Once in the Inn talk to the Man and Girl and try to help their pouch (he's so sick) poor little guy.

What a frustrating game. I spent so much time trying to follow the Lemur I had to give up and take a rest. I finally found the clearing and the tree, now I'm trying to change posts around Dodd's grave. Even with the walkthrough I can't seem to get it. Headache time. Why would they make the game so frustrating? It is supposed to be fun! Sorry I wasted a credit on this one.

The grave is a complex and challenging puzzle indeed.
But its absolutely logical. You just need to be aware there is an empty space somewhere in the row.

I'm very new to 360 games. I tried AGON: London and thought it was too short. Nonetheless, bought it. Now I have the second game. I am having a good, if frustrating time. I have looked everywhere but cannot find the episodes 4-14. Have they ever been issued?
BTW: regards the Morse code message. There is a printed copy from Gameboomers' walkthrough; I saved it, otherwise I would never have gotten through that part.
Thanks for the information on slowing down the rotation. The first time I tried, I promptly "got most unwell,big-time. I knew I had balance difficulties, but never thought a game could trigger that. I now know better. ICK!

Finally, by accident, discovered that if I held the left mouse button down and swung my arm to the left or the right that suddenly I was in motion. The same principle applies for up and down.

That being said, I am not good enough at this type of game, at this moment, to purchase it without some more practice. However, it has a great deal of potential for me. A year ago I would just have thrown up my hands in despair and quit cold. Now, I am provisionally quitting, but with hope.

Hope this helps! (Hope seems to be the key word here)

Thank you for your tip. I am just learning, Nehmah

Good move on my part as it was just the right speed. You also have the option of difficulty. I am usually not very good at Adventures so I changed it to Easy.

Since I have a vertigo-related problem and found out the messy way that games can trigger an episode, I really appreciate your "Options" suggestion. I love this frustrating game. Nehmah
