The World of Oz Book

A little machine oil can get those rusty parts moving again.

This is just one hint for one of the many puzzles in book titled The World of Oz. If you have questions, hints or comments about any of the puzzles in this book, please post them in this discussion thread.

Use the magnet. It will pull the Tin Man in a new direction.

Hey Gina, not positive ... but I think there is one square to left of center that has only one opening. You need to move the chicken into that square. I think all the others have more than one access.

I'm using the tin man with the magnet, but I am STUCK... ok, not me, but the tin man. He is stuck between the grass wall and a hole. I accidentally clicked the magnet at the wrong time and he turned toward the wall and now I can't get him out!! I have an image if there is a way to post it?

PLEASE HELP!!! Is there a way to restart the book? I've got a whole 30 minutes left on the timer!

Thanks!

I have chopped down the trees, but can't get the tin man over the hedges - How do I do this?

I'm having the same problem with the tin man being stuck. I have tried magnet in many places, he won't move. Can't seem to find a way to start book over either.

Nice to know I'm not the only one having this problem!!

Anyone know what can be done please?? I restarted the game and don't want it to happen again!!

edit Never mind... I restarted the whole game and finished it already. I'm surprised that a tech or mod didn't help...

Same thing here, Tinman is stuck and I cannot get him out, figure I will just let the timer run out and start again unless anyone has a solution. Thanks and happy game playing.

I'm stuck too with the tin man. I'm really close to the shoes but there is one tree in my way. It says I can't use the ax or magnet here. I honestly am stuck. I really love this game though! There are not enough of these type of games!

jamary - I don't know if there is a way to start an individual puzzle over or how to proceed if the Tinman is actually stuck. You may need to skip that puzzle, which you can do a limited number of times by clicking on the spheres on the left side of the portrait of the "Hint Man" as you called him. (I can't remember his name )

Hey, sorry you had to move on but glad I helped. I am playing the game a 2nd time on relaxed mode and I did discover (which would have solved your problem I think) that there is a "reset" button at the bottom which resets the current book. Letting the timer run out leaves your progress where it was, but reset starts you over on that book. I don't think you can restart *just* the mini-game, but you can start over on any given book.

Make sure you put the axe down by the roots of the tree. If you try to chop with the axe on the top of the tree or even the trunk, it says you can't use the axe in that part of the maze. Good luck!

Thank you so much Penhar!

That was exactly my problem. Apparently, I chopped the first tree down correctly but not the second one.

You have 2 boards, and will use them again on the maze. Once the Tin Man has moved across a board (plank), you can pick it up and move it to a new spot.

Magnet: as long as it's on the same row as the Tin Man, he will move towards it. If you watch his path, you can get him to move over by puttiing the magnet on a square next to his path. I did notice the magnet "times out", but you'll figure it out.

He doesn't go through the hedges. And trees can be chopped down.

I'm having the same problem. I got the shoes. But turned the tin woodman the wrong way and he's now trying to walk thru the hedge. No matter where I put the magnet I'm told either I can't do that there or nothing happens.

I also would like to start that book again, but can't find a way to do it w/o starting the whole game over.

Thanks Penhar, I was not using the axe at the base of the tree. It got the shoes and Dorothy is on her way home. LOL
