I'm joining in after abandoning AGON ; I have to say that after that one, I'm finding the navigation in Rhiannon absolutely a dream!

I've come close to deleting it so many times, but my need to finish games stops me.
I'm trying to conquer the Tablut game without resorting to a walkthru, and I've been close but not close enough!
I'm taking a break to play Rhiannanon and some nice easy Snarkbuster...........maybe I'll come back fresh in a few days!

Continue on to the web page checkout; the correct $2.99 price will be there (there may be a note at top of page that says "code you attempted to use is invalid"---ignore that. It's just telling you that you can't use the sale code on a $2.99 item)

I got that also when I hit the "buy" button in the game manager; but when I went to the web purchase page, it came up as the correct $2.99.

I'll be playing, also. I've heard that the puzzles in this one are difficult.

After I read this, I realized that I thought the arrows were indicating the + and - signs, and didn't know the middle of it were also separate it solved right away when I got that! Thanks! ( and "duh" to me!)

I've got the Viva Adventure Anthology one labeled "The Mysterious Codex". That covers London, Lapland, and Madacascar, right? I'll probably continue on with Lapland after a few days rest with some other games!

Can't get in to any of them. Guess I will keep looking cus there aren't that many places to look. Maybe a flashlight or lightening will strike?

****Look on the boxes in the basement hallway****

Holy Mackeral!! SHORT is the word, all right! I'm a plodding player, and I don't often use that word. I would really like this game better if it had a journal; of course, I ended up keeping my own hand-written one. My boxed set game continues on in Lapland. Should I keep going? I'm not seeing any stairs yet........

This is a game where as soon as I finished, I wanted to go back and play it again.
For me, it was such a "feel good" experience. Also, since there was 'no skip' on the puzzles, I was forced to finish them...a first for me, since I tend to give up easily and go for the 'skip' button. I did the arcade puzzles with a laptop touchpad (my excuse for being slow), and I found that on them strategy was actually more important than speed. In order to be successful, study them and see what you need to do and where you need to go.

I couldn't see that at the time!
Another thing I never noticed until the end: I never knew what that blue bar on the right hand side of the inventory page meant. Getting near the end, I accidently put my cursor over it...........and found out it was my "pride level"!

Find me a hammer, and I'll forget about eBay!

13 days.........
32 'saves'.........
683 mediocre points.........


(Wishing for a 3rd option to the ending; and I'll be putting my ocarina up on eBay)

Are you still there?
Please let us know if you need help.

HA! HA! Some of us are beyond help, LOL! I did a major faux pas last nite:
I put the gas in the wrong bottle (the violet one), and then couldn't undo disassembling it, and didn't have materials to make another bottle (no more charcoal anywhere. I had been playing 1.5 hrs, and didn't do any 'saves' during that time, so I really had a lot to do over. I decided to go to bed and sleep on it.
Hopefully, I'll finish today!! (Thanks for the 'help' offer, anyway, CFG)

That puzzle didn't turn out to be as bad as I anticipated...more in the tedious category than difficult. I'm all calmed down, now!! (and moving right along).

A hearty congratulations to anyone who is getting towards the end! It's been 1 step forward, and 2 steps back for me, but I keep slogging along. I'm at the "language puzzle", and trying hard not to scream!!

It was *** the hole in the rock face; haven't found the one in the palm, yet.****I guess I'll just go back; I'm missing something somewhere!

Question for those who have completed the game: I had my ocarina stolen, and it wasn't in the cache when I got there; will I be able to complete the game without it?
Or should I just go back to a previous save and do it over?
