*** Gladys and the Strength Test ***
Hastings doesn't believe that any woman has the strength to strangle someone. He will get Poirot to give Gladys one of the bottles that you have collected to attempt to open - when she can't, he gets Poirot to ask her to try to get one of the other women to open it.

OPTIONS:
Correct response: Actually, you can choose any name from the list.

You will need to "walk" around for awhile. If you are gone long enough, she has taken it on herself to get all of the women to try to open the bottle - the only successful one: Emily Brewster.

(I found that if I went up to the Tower and looked with the binoculars in all four directions then went down and across to the other hallway off the balcony [on the side of the balcony opposite where I found Gladys], out the door to the veranda on the left, down the outside stairs, back in through the side door and back upstairs to where I found Gladys was plenty of time.)

Once you've learned the results of her test, this will trigger the end of the Act 5 - fade to Poirot's flat in London.

I am stuck on August 24th Afternoon - after returning to Poirot's room I am supposed to go into the bathroom and take the fresh towels, there are no towels anywhere in Poirot's bathroom. There also is no cleaning cart and the maid won't speak to him. I have tried retracing all my steps, but now everyone wants to be left alone. Most of the doors in the hotel are locked so I'm stuck and cannot advance. I don't have a lot of patience with games that don't work properly. I have returned to Poirot's office 3 or 4 times to do the magic finger thing but it just gives me the two cards and no power word, even though I know it's supposed to give me the word "lamp." Game appears to be stuck.

You haven't finished Act 1. The "Lamp" clue occurs at the beginning of Act 2 before you go back to the hotel. The towels are not available until you're given the Lamp clue.

So let's talk about what needs to happen in Act 1 before you can move on. If the Finger of Suspicion has two cards in it, then you need to go back to the hotel and interview or observe or assist those 2 people.

What's on your To-Do List in the notebook? Have you read all the documents? Reviewed the list of suspects? Read the Guest Registry?

Here is what needs to happen in Act 1 before you can go on:

Interview:
Gladys (outside Poirot's room)
Kenneth Marshall
The Gardeners
George
Linda Marshall
Arlena Marshall
Christine Redfern
Henry the hotel bartender
Rosamonde Darnley
Mrs. Castle
Stephen Lane - Monastery Ruins
Major Barry
Emily Brewster
John North

Observe:
Patrick and Arlena in the water at the bathing beach (after interviewing Christina Redfern)

Assist
Linda Marshall with the Blind

Collect:
Hotel Brochure
Rope
Case Files (Poirot's Office)
2 Stones
2 Fence Posts
Chicken Feathers

Read:
Guest Registry, Millie Parson's Case File

Timings:
Monastery Ruins to Cutter's Cove
Tennis Court to Cutter's Cove
Hotel to Cutter's Cove
The Ledges to Cutter's Cove
The Bathing Beach to Cutter's Cove
Sanctuary Cove to Cutter's Cove

The other two Agatha Christie games "And then there were none" and "Murder on the Orient Express"

There's a Dracula game on Big Fish which I'm going to try with my next game credit.

It's been a while since I've played And Then There Were None. I just finished Murder on the Orient Express, which wasn't as difficult as this game, but just as good. So I'd go with that first. They both play like Evil Under the Sun

I'm stuck in Act 2. Where is Mrs Castle. I've Poirot walking all over the place and into all the rooms I can find and access but with no luck.

Any suggestions would be a great help.

I am at a stand still. How do I get the "liquid courage for George" I go to the bar and the bartender tells Piort that he can't make the Planters Punch because George drank all the ingredients. Then Pirot wants to give him a bottle of cough syrup. What gives? I am totally lost.............

Thanks,

K

For the planters punch: find the empty bottle of grenadine in the bar wastebasket, fill it w/the cough syrup from the pharmacy, give these along w/the glass of rum from smuggler's rest to the barman and he'll make the drink which you can then take to the beach

Loving the game, although, just got to the search for the treasure and I've dug up the old barrel at the tennis court, been to see the bar man at the pub and then back to the area by the hotel where he says is the highest part of the area and then everything goes black. The following error appears, 'error: Access violation at 0x004102FE (tried to read from 0x01DBB8498), program terminated.

Can anyone please help?
Thanks

I am stuck on the part of the game where Poiroit is suppose to clean the points on Major Barrys car. I picked up the tools necessary but he did not get stuck on the metal splinter. He will not read the article to figure out to repair the car.....I have done everything else. How do I get him to fix the car so I can proceeed with the game???????
