Final Solution


Use the wooden figures on the whiteboard to help you translate the ones on the shelves.

The message you get will start with “I like…”

“I like to play jump rope.”

The board fills from bottom to top.
The first column is filled with black, except the last move is red’s.
The second alternates between black and red until filled.
The third is like the seventh.
The fourth is like the first.
The fifth is just red.
The six is half black then red, black, red.
The seventh is like the fifth.

You will need to have unlocked the doll before you can solve this puzzle. Listen to the audio of the file you get from the doll unlock and use it with the four-in-a-row game.

Draw out how the board would look if filled according to the doll’s instructions. You can use colored pens or use the letters R and B to represent the colors.

Once you have the board filled, you should see a three-letter name.

Fold and tear out the pieces and use them with the stacking puzzle.

Since each stack can not have any repeating colors you can place the small blue (#4) in the third stack.

Next, since no sizes repeat in the stacks you can place the small-medium yellow (#7) in the third stack.

You will need to have the stacking puzzle unlocked to solve this puzzle. The hint you need is on the matching board “I don't judge a person by the color of their skin or shape of their body, but by the points they make with their words.”

Don’t look at the shape or color of the shapes. Instead, look at the points. The numbers on the board relate to the number of points on the shapes you find in the stacking puzzle unlock.

So 0 = circle, since it has no points, 3 = triangle, etc. The message you get will start with “Call…”

“Call me Abe”

You will need to have Mr. Snuggles unlocked first.

Watch the video you get from the Mr. Snuggles unlock and compare what you see to the board with faces.

The video is telling you:
No glasses
No facial hair
No patterns on shirts
No artificial hair colors
No accessories

Look at the student art show brochure to find the date you need.

You are looking for when the University started.

Look at the red acrylic painting carefully. There are nine shapes hidden in the painting. Where else have you seen this same grouping of shapes?

Look through the brochure. Look at the name of the different art pieces. You will notice there are shapes beside certain words.

Pull the words out in the order they are in on the painting. The message you get will start with “My work was…”

“My work was never given the recognition it deserves.”

The letters on the ink painting create a clue. The diagram of letters read X = E

Use X = E and create a shifted alphabet. So X = E, Y = F, Z = G, A = H, B = I ...etc.

Use that to translate the letters and read them from left to right. The message you get will start with “I was never…”

“I was never good at this art medium”

The back of this painting has the directions you need. For each column change the location of the letters based on their colors

So the red and blue letters switch places, the yellow and green letters switch places, and the pink and orange letters switch places. The first column would then look like this

I (Green)

C (Blue)

M (Red)

I (Yellow)

O (Pink)

N (Orange)

Once each column has shifted according to its color, read from left to right. The message you get will start with “I want to…”

“I want to create a masterpiece before I turn thirty”

Look at the painting carefully to locate 16 hidden words.

Read from left to right.

The message will start with “I have been…”

“I have been here for more than three years and this is how they treat me.”

Nick’s Final Thoughts


There are 6 rooms you have been tasked with investigating (Kitchen, Library, Chapel, Game Room, Music Room, and Greenhouse).

These can be explored in any order.

As you explore each room and solve the puzzles within, take note of the following information:
a. The medium asks you for the 6 characters that make up Killian’s license plate number.
b. You will find one instruction in each room that, when lined up correctly, will tell you how to navigate through the house to a specific location.

In order to determine where you should go on the map, you need both the starting point and the correct order to place the directions you received in each of the six rooms.

Solving the license plate puzzle will provide the medium with enough information to help her visions become clear. After unlocking the license plate file, you will obtain both the starting point on the map and the order of the rooms. You will need to know the temperature of each room to know what order to place the directions. Order the directions obtained in each room unlock according to the temperatures (as instructed by the medium).

Using the starting point on the map that the medium provides, travel across the map according to the six directions that have been placed in the correct order (by the temperature of each room) and reach your ultimate destination in Part 1 of The Cleansing of Killian House. Use the name of the room to unlock this file.

After you’ve obtained the directions provided in the brick wall unlock, you can apply them to each of the eye coins.

Travel around each eye using the directions provided to ultimately spell several words that can be used to fill in the blanks on the door card.

Once you have filled in the words, take the letters underlined in green and form a word. Use this to unlock the door and leave the catacombs.

Translated message: I hacked off one of my fingers. The word you pull from this message is: anger

The back of the large gravestone has a coded message.

The front of the gravestone has an epitaph that displays those same characters. Determine what each character represents and use it to decode the message on the back of the gravestone.

Note: Some of the symbols can stand for 2 different letters.

I worked for a family of maniacs. I was killed with a spade. Look in shed. The word ‘shed’ will unlock “Where In The Cemetery Should You Search?”

Once you have found the notebook left by the caretaker, you are instructed to use the house number from the Killian House address.

This is found on the map.

There are four gravestones that are used to answer this question. Match the numbers of the address up to the quotes on the gravestones and pull out that specific word (example: 1 equals the first word on the gravestone). You will be directed to a specific room in the house.

playroom

Once you have determined where the notebook leads, the unlock provides a series of columns, each of which has a specific image at the top

Nick’s EVP mentions three of those images.

Take the columns beneath each of the images mentioned on the EVP and write them in the order they are mentioned. Once you have all 3 columns written side by side you should be able to read from top to bottom, left to right and get the final answer to help you solve the investigation.

The statement under Lacey Grund’s name is the key to this puzzle.

Notice that the letters A and Z are under the first and last letters of this statement. There are exactly 26 letters in the statement that begins with “Mr.Jock…”

This puzzle will require you to transpose every letter on the back of the card using the key you are given on the front of the card. Write out the alphabet A through Z and match them up with the letter above in the 26-letter sentence. Use this to decipher the message.

Oswald will rig cameras. He is the head of the crew.

There is a note taped to Oswald’s door.

At the end of each string of numbers there is a question mark. This is what you are searching for.

Lacey decides to give you the street name where the diamonds are hidden.

She provides 4 words that supposedly contain the clue. She also says “We thought everything out from beginning and end.”

Examine the beginning and end of the four words she provides. Use what you find to consult the birthstone chart to see what corresponds. That is the name of the street.

sapphire is the word-provides the name of the street “September”

Helen mentions a sheet of numbers that will help you obtain the locker number where the diamonds are hidden

She also gives you a 6-digit number that will provide help as well.

Examine the sheet of numbers and count how many of each number there are. The 6-digit number she provides on her card gives you the order. (Example: The first digit Helen provides is 6. Use the number from the sheet that appears 6 times as the first digit in the locker number. You will end up with a 6 digit number.

491237 is the locker number

To answer this question, you will need the answers to Lacey and Helen’s puzzles.

Once you have both, put them together in the order they are requested and gain access to the locker.

491237september

In order to know what’s important here, you will first need to unlock the Where are the Diamonds card.

The Ventriloquist talks about a special location that he visited with his dear wife.

The clue you are looking for comes from the line that talks about the interval in which he and Trudie visited their special place. Use the number mentioned to find the appropriate letters from the string of letters. This will be part of the final password to solve the box.

gazebo

To solve this puzzle, you will need to solve Oswald, Wayne, and Brent’s puzzles first.

You will need the ringleader’s title and full name. It may be easiest to write these three words together with no spaces.

Use the decoder to convert the title and full name to a five letter word. Take note of The Ventriloquist’s true first name. This will provide half of the final password.

felon

The solution requires two pieces of information.

One of those pieces of information is obtained by unlocking the “What is the ringleader” card.

One of those pieces of information is obtained by solving the Beech Town Park card. Once you have both solutions, you should be able to finish the box.

This looks very much like a simple connect-the-dots pattern. But there is a note that says, “Until certain, I wouldn't recommend connecting any of these dots.”

The orange legal pad will be helpful in providing information on the correct dots to connect.

Solving this puzzle will eliminate a suspect.

Take notice of the rope and the order of the trees that it touches/wraps around. The yellow legal paper, found in the file folder, mentions the case being like mature trees. Pay close attention to what it says.

The clue is telling you to start at the bottom of each tree and work your way towards the top. Use this information with the rope. Start with the tree that has the metal hook on it “E O D R V S…”

Take the letter from the bottom of the first tree. Then, notice the tree that the rope goes to next. Take the letter from the bottom of that tree. Then, notice the tree that the rope goes to after that. Take the letter from the bottom of that tree. Continue this process going through that order of trees until you have used all letters. The message you are given will eliminate a suspect.

You should notice that there was a piece of paper attached to a pencil via a rubber band. Take a look at the blue legal pad note and recognize that there are two references to pencils
a. “Pencil me in…”
b. A graphic of a pencil
In the graphic of the pencil, notice the graphic of what the pencil is in. The piece of paper that was wrapped around the pencil

Take the piece of paper that was wrapped around the pencil, and position the pencil over each of the graphics on the paper. Pay close attention to what you are forming – “…the formation of character” “When in Rome…” – with the inclusion of this statement and the chart of roman numerals, you are being told that you will be forming roman numerals with the pencil. The grid on the blue legal paper corresponds exactly to the grid of formations on the piece of paper that was attached to the pencil. Use the squares of the grid that are circled on the blue legal paper. This will give you four numbers

The final comment is about a chest with no handles. This is telling you to use the four numbers you now have to unlock the chest. Use the information that you receive from the chest unlock with information from the orange legal paper to eliminate a suspect

There is a statement about horror movies on the opposite side of the paper from where the movies are listed. The statement you are given matches up with a list that can be found on the back of the yellow legal pad note.

The times are very important. The hours mean one thing for this puzzle and the minutes mean another thing for this puzzle.

Take each time in the list. The hours are telling you which movie to take from the list. The minutes are telling you which letter to take from that specific movie. a. Example – 1:01 (This tells you to take the first movie and then take the first letter from that movie)

You will need to unlock the Shakespeare card before trying to solve this. In the Shakespeare unlock you see the same triangle as you do on the orange legal paper. This unlock also reveals the identity of the informant. Therefore, another suspect is eliminated.

The unlock gives you specific instructions about doing things in groups of three. Take the rows of letters (next to the triangle) on the orange legal pad note and break those into groupings of threes. Example (L C O…O E M…N C G…) Continue this process working your way through all the letters.

The unlock gives you specific instructions on which letters to use within the groups and when. When it mentions “The First”, this is telling you to take the first letter from ALL groupings. And then continue that process for the other instructions. Solving this will eliminate a suspect.

See if you can find a hidden message in the note.

Examine the capital letters carefully

Use what you get to eliminate a suspect.

I wait for no one

Use only the capital letters at the beginning of each sentence. This statement eliminates Milos, the waiter.

Use what you obtained from the “Sailing the River Styx” book for this. You will notice from the note found in the book that air, earth, fire, and water have different values.

You should also notice that they either point up or down. Using the values for each elemental move the correct number up or down, starting at the water symbol.

Note: Since “air equals two” this means that air x 2 would equal moving up 4 from the water. Use what you get to eliminate a suspect.

I hate critics

Identify what each picture represents then add, subtract, or substitute the letters beneath.

Example (nose - se = no)

Use what you get to eliminate a suspect.

no tools in my hands

This eliminates Joseph, the carpenter.

You are trying to find the values for the letters embedded in the security camera code. Examine the logo for The Apollo Room (sun image)

Take each letter from the security camera message and find the letter at the opposite of the sun that corresponds.

Do this for each letter in the code and use what you obtain to unlock the cameras

Read the dinner conversation and the “Questioning of the Staff” interviews.

The information you need is given by Kona and James.

levupistachio

Read the dinner conversation and make note of the odd behavior of one of the staff members. Lauren mentions seeing a staff member tapping on door frames. Harrison confirms this and says the person he saw doing this is Chanelle.

If you look at the brochure you will see that the cover has a doorway design. Some of the symbols from the doorway on the brochure match the symbols on the spa door.

Combine the information about the doorframe tapping, the door frame image on the brochure, and the spa door to solve this puzzle. You are trying to get a four letter word. I.e When Chanelle taps the right side bottom once, she is tapping the guitar symbol. This symbol is on the spa door with the word “contentment.” Use the first letter of this word, which is C. Now finish the rest to get the word you need to unlock the spa.

calm

You will need to have the spa unlocked first. Read Chanelle’s interview. She has the clue you need to unlock the surf shack.

Use Chanelle’s clue with the beach ball and the towels found in the spa. Match the colors on the beach ball to the towels. The beach ball is the order you need and the number of each color of towels are what is used in the code to unlock the surf shack.

If you follow Chanelle's clue on the beach ball “start at white, end on red and around we go.” You will start on white(3), then move round the ball to end on red. So the second color you path through is green (2). Keep going to get the rest of the colors/numbers. Hint: (blue isn’t used since you end on red and there are no blue towels)

32761

Listen to the parrot. Pay special attention when he starts talking about a secret place. The parrot mentions love birds, that is a hint.

Look at the wall with all of the names on it. One set of names should easily tie to the idea of “love” birds.

These two names also show up together somewhere else. Look at Jeff and Alex’s review. This is where you will get the words you need that the parrot mentions. Solution: coconutgrove

“Jack is lazy. Arcck! Jack is lazy. Arcck! Jack is lazy. Arcck!
Crystal is a know it all, know it all.
Kona's smile is so fake.
Chanelle sucks at cleaning. Yes, she does.
Thomas is so shady, so shady.
Malosi needs some new recipes, so tired of fish.

There is a secret place, but this bird won't tell, won't tell.
Ask the love birds, they know. Arrrcck!
Just pay heed to their second and last word and then you will know the place.
Yes, you will. Yes, you will. Arrrck!
Just pay heed to their second and last word and then you will know the place.
Yes, you will. Yes, you will. Arrrck!”

You will need to have found the 4 missing scuba tanks to complete. You will need to have unlocked the surf shack and the “Where is the secret place?” first. The gauges on the scuba tanks can be read as a fraction of 12. Using the 4 tanks you start with you have 0/12, 10/12, 3/12, and 1/12.

No combination of these tanks will give you exactly one full tank without overfilling. You will have to find the 4 missing tanks. Once you have them you will be able to get a full tank of air.

You will use three tanks in total. One from the start four, one from the surf shack and one from the secret place. The order is from least to greatest based on the amount of air in the tank.

c6g2l8

The note on the kitchen door about knowing the VALUE of good ROOM SERVICE is your clue. Find the value of a single pineapple, mango, and coconut.

It will be easier if you start with finding the value of a mango. The Sweet Treat bowl has 5 mangos for $10. So a single mango costs $2.

You can use this fact to help you find the value of the other two fruits.cCompare the Tropical Balance bowl to the Paradise bowl. If you remove the two mangos from the Tropical Balance you will be left with one pineapple and two coconuts for the total cost of $6. The only difference between this bowl and the Paradise bowl is the Paradise bowl has one more coconut and costs $7. With that you can determine that the cost of the coconut is $1. Finding the cost of the pineapple should be easy.

4212

You will use the symbol on the sunken ship door, the old diver’s helmet image, and The Drunken Octopus sign for this puzzle.

Use The Drunken Octopus sign to determine the value of each symbol. Pay special attention to see how the legs of the octopus are numbered.

The 4 legs on the left are numbered from left to right based on where they connect to the octopus’ body. Hint: The weird sun-like symbol is 2. Use the symbol from the sunken ship with the diver’s helmet to get the order.

8352

You need to determine what items, when combined, have the total weight of 10 lbs.

You are looking for four items.

One of the items is the life preserver.

35910

Use the broken sign pieces with the signpost to determine the distance.

Match the broken edges so you can know the distance to each location.

Now follow the directions to determine the correct distance.

2949

You will need to have the “Where Are Your Friends?” unlocked first. Count the number of times the grouping of letters
“the” “she” “sea” appears in the poem.

The word seashell has both the word, “sea” and the word “she” in it.

Compare the wall of computer monitors to the review mentioned. Notice that there are only three screens that are not crossed out. Also the monitors make a 3x4 grid.

One more step to the prize!

These girls are this color, but the location on the map is not.

If you want to go for a drink where everybody knows your name, don't go to this reunion location on the map.

P.I.'s Ferrari, Knight's KITT, and Marty's DeLorean won't be found in the same location as the prize.

Instead, look where the first movie listed has 3 of these that are all the same, the second word's second letter of the last movie listed, and then finally the beginning letter of the second movie listed.

You have to do what's right for you. In here, it's your time. It's your time in here! That's all over the second the reunion is over. Hurry and get the prize before you end up like One-eyed Willy and the rest of his crew!

You will need to have the phone unlocked to solve this puzzle. The audio mentions how to get three letters.

The letters are found in the movie section of the pamphlet. Use the three letter word for the location.

You will find the murder weapon in this unlock.

lab

Marshall Bradshaw - The puzzle on the skating poster reveals that the person being blackmailed (the killer) had good grades in school, so it couldn’t be Marshall since he had a 1.5 GPA.
Minnie Franks - When you solve the message on the back of the coupon and answer the question “Who left and where did they go?”, you find out that Minnie was at a bar during the time of the murder.
Heather Hilton - Heather is eliminated when you unlock the “Where is the first piece of evidence?” card. The message on the sticky note mentions the killer being a good athlete and Heather didn’t play sports so it couldn’t be her.
Wilma Datlow - Wilma was playing an arcade game during the time of the murder. You find this out once you have the survey box and arcade game unlocked.
Burton Fitz - Burton is eliminated when you unlock the “Where is the second piece of evidence?” card. The message on the sticky note mentions the killer wanting to learn an instrument back in the day. Since Burton is the drum major and knows how to play an instrument, this eliminates him as a suspect.
Harold Park - Once you have completed the map puzzle and unlocked Heather’s information, you will find that Harold was in the teachers’ lounge during the time of the murder.
Carrie Ann Conroy - Carrie Ann is eliminated when you unlock the “Where is the third piece of evidence?” card. The note found with the evidence mentions that the killer doesn’t like horror films. Based on Carrie Ann’s favorite memory you know that she likes scary movies so you can eliminate her as a suspect.

You will need to have every suspect eliminated and have the “where is the prize?” card unlocked.

Read the message on the music from left to right.

The message will start with, “This is the…”

This is the church I was married in. The past holds so many memories. I wish I could turn back time just one hour to be with her.

Read the paper that mentions the history of St. Benedict's Cathedral.

The first paragraph has three words that stand out. Match those words to the symbols on the sundial.

You will also need to read the message on the music sheet. There is a hint in Walter’s message. You will need to go back one hour for each of the three symbols you found.

You will need to solve the sundial puzzle first. The paper you find inside the sundial is describing one of the people in the mausoleum.

Read the descriptions carefully and eliminate people until only one is left.

Hint: the part about “This person was neither the eldest nor the youngest” has to do with when that person was born, not how long they have lived. Example: you might live a longer life than your parents, but you wouldn’t say you were older than your mom and dad. Remember to use what the message in the sundial mentioned for the unlock

You will need to solve the mausoleum puzzle first. The message from Walter in the mausoleum unlock is your hint for this puzzle: “I have always marched to the beat of my own drum. I don’t follow conventional wisdom nor do I use the common standards. Just look to my words to understand what I mean.”

When you go to translate the music notes into letters do not use the standard ABCDEFG. Instead use Walter's own words from the music sheet you read earlier to help you translate the notes

Notice that the letters on the music sheet show up on the same line each time. The message will start with “look…”

Read the message Walter wrote on the back of the shooting gallery poster carefully.

Walter mentions three animals his wife loved. What was on her hair clip? What animal did she jump into the river to get? What kind of person would she be if not for her allergies?

Also make note of Walter’s comment “I could never harm something that my wife held dear.” This means don’t shoot those animals, shoot what is left. What word do you get?

You will need to solve the shooting gallery puzzle first. Use the directions you get from the shooting gallery unlock with the Ferris wheel.

The message found by the Ferris Wheel has three hints to help with this puzzle. "Where you get on is where you start. Now enjoy the ride as the Ferris wheel turns. Where you stop is what you get." Start at the bottom (where you get on), the directions you get are about the wheel turning, not you moving (Ferris wheel turns), and each turn will get you a letter (where you stop is what you get).

So if the wheel were turned six places counterclockwise, what letter is now at the bottom? Hint: the first three letters are “USE”.

“Use only even numbers.”

You will need to solve the Ferris wheel puzzle first. The Axe Throwing booth and the toys on the shelves go together.

If you count how many numbers and toys are in each row you will find that they match each. So each number goes with a toy. Using the answer from the Ferris wheel, “Use only even numbers”, take note of which animals on each shelf would be left.

Now find the letter for each animal and read the message you get. The message will start with “take a…”

Read through the 48 true/false statements on the back of the “Help!” note.

Use the cork board as a reference for any questions you are unsure about.

Using the Hemingway Heights map, eliminate any houses that have a false statement with their number. Example: on number 4 the statement is false since New York’s nickname is the Big Apple, not the Big Orange. This means you can mark out house number 4.

Joshua Ridgeley needs some help with his geometry homework. He has mentioned it has something to do with the sum(addition) of each row and column. If you look carefully at the grid you will notice that the top row of numbers does not have any question marks. Use this as a starting point. Find the sum of the top row. This will give you the value of the triangle.

Once you know the value of the triangle you can figure out what number needs to replace the ? in the first column, since it will have the same sum as the first row since they are both marked with triangles. Hint: triangles = 17, so the total for each row and column marked with a triangle needs to equal 17. That mean that the ? in the first column needs to be replaced with a 3. Use this thinking to complete the rest of the grid. Use the four numbers that replaced the ? to access the QR code. The information you get from Joshua will help you eliminate some houses.

Amber mentions that this puzzle has something to do with the little league poster. Look at the top of the little league poster.

The icon with the 4 letters is what you will need to use with the letter grid on the back of Amber’s card. Use the line as a path and trace out the path on the letter grid to get a message. Start at the letter U.

The first word you will get is “unlock.” The information you get from Amber will help you eliminate some houses. Use the information from Amber with the HOA’s list of homes.

Scan the QR code on the back of the Vet Clinic card and listen to the audio.

“We found one of those microchips that some owners get for their dogs. We called the number we pulled from the scan. The number was for a company called VetTech. They were able to get us the dog owner's contact information. Unfortunately, it is against the clinic's policy to give out the owner's information. I don't want to lose my job. At the same time, I understand that this is a bit of an emergency. I have an idea. The owner’s phone number is a local number. So, it should be pretty easy to figure out what the first six digits of the phone number are. To get the last four digits of the phone number, take the year the clinic was founded and multiply that number by the number of animals in our logo. Finally, add in the total number of barks that you have heard during this conversation. The total should give you the last four digits of the dog owner’s phone number.”

There are 17 barks.

1954 x 3 =
5862 + 17 = 5879

You will need to listen to the Animal Clinic worker to solve this.

The worker mentions that the phone number you need is a local number so the first six digits are the same as other local numbers. Look through the items you have to find a local number so you can get the first six digits.

To get the last four digits listen and follow the directions given by the Animal Clinic worker. The information you get from this will help you eliminate some houses.

Read through the “Help!” note to figure out which Mary wrote the note.

In the note she mentions things like her family status, her hand, and her name.

Mary Diana James

Based on the information in the “Help!” note you can determine that the Mary that wrote the note is married with children, right handed, and has Mary as her first name.

1. Use the information Mary provides about the exterior of the house and the HOA list to eliminate some of the houses based on their exterior.

Use the list of true and false statements on the back of the help note to eliminate some houses based on their house number.

Use the information you get from Amber and the HOA list to eliminate some of the houses based on their tree type.

Use the information you get from Joshua and the HOA list to eliminate some of the houses based on their grass type.

Use the information you get from Charlie’s owner and the HOA list to eliminate some of the houses based on their flower type.

You will need to have solved all previous puzzles before you attempt to unlock this.

The letters you need for the nodes are on the notebook paper that has Eddie’s notes.

Like the notes about door one say, you will need to figure out which nodes you need to move to make a clear path for the current to pass through.
Example: Moving this metal circle up will unblock that part of the path beneath-the-surface-hint

The letters you get from the nodes the current passes through will spell a word.

dangerous

Use the image of the two gears with the notes about door two and the “HEADACHE” message in Eddie's notes. Use the word HEADACHE with the letters on the gear.

Starting with H you should see that H corresponds to the number 8 on the numbered gear. You are told that the numbered gear can spin. The direction under the H on Eddie’s notes has a 2 with a clockwise turn. If the numbered gear was turned 2 moves clockwise the 6 would now correspond to the H. So H gives you 6. (See the first image below)

Remember Eddie’s hint about always coming back to the beginning. This means the numbered gear will reset back to its starting point each time. The next letter is E. After you turn the numbered gear 3 click counter-clockwise 8 is now where the 6 was located. So 8 corresponds to E. (See the second image below). So your first two numbers you have gotten from the H and the E are 68.

Use the notes about door three to help you solve this puzzle.

The notes have a few hints. The amount of each color is not useful, so don’t count. Rearrange your thinking, so you will need to move some stuff around.

There is a tracing feature over the dots, so you will have to trace something, after you have rearranged them. The # with the arrows is your clue on how to rearrange the numbers. Rearrange the numbers from least to greatest. Then write out the dots with their adjacent numbers. Example: the first two rows would look like this beneath-the-surface-hint3

If you don’t have colored markers or pens you can always use letters to represent the colors.
Example: instead of make Red, Red, Green, Green circle/dots you can write out
R R G G

You will need to have solved the first 3 doors before attempting this puzzle. As you unlock the first three doors you will find a pill in each room.

You will get an identification number for each pill. Once you have all three, follow the directions on the paper under the pill organizer. The references about Morning, Noon, Evening, and Bedtime are each connected to one of the 4 parts of the pill organizer.

The first clue states “The letter found in between the two letters at the center.” In the first section there are three pills, two of which have letters. Using the letters A and K what is alphabetically in between them at the center?

A B C D E F G H I J K

As you can see F is at the center between A and K.
Follow the other directions to get the rest of the code.

You will need to have solved the first 3 doors before attempting this puzzle.

f859 You get f from the morning section by using the letters A and K and finding what alphabetically in between them at the center?
A B C D E F G H I J K

As you can see F is at the center between A and K.

You get 8 from the Noon section by adding the 2 and the 6.
You get the 5 from the evening section because it is the only odd number.
You get 9 from the bedtime section because it is the largest single digit.

You will need to have solved the first 3 doors before attempting this puzzle. Use the answer you got from the pill organizer puzzle to unlock this door.

Make sure to look at the keypad when you enter the code.

Use the record log for the ankle monitor that is normal to translate the encrypted logs.

The message at the top of the page that has the company's name, slogan, and phone number is the same for both pages. So you can use this to help you translate the rest of the document.

Compare dates to the time and date in the chat transcript. beneath-the-surface-hint4

Mentally piece together the torn up piece of paper.

Compare dates to the time and date in the chat transcript.

You will also need to look at an item from part one to know who to eliminate. beneath-the-surface-hint5

“Helena” sent Eddie a secret message on March 8th that she said he would have to decipher.

Fill the letters and words as you decipher the message. What you see with: eye=I

13th letter in the alphabet: m . Opposite of far + shortened word you say when hanging up the phone: near +bye = nearby. So the message will start with, “I’m nearby…”

“I'm nearby, not house with two odd digits.”

Read through the chat transcripts to find Helena’s username.

Use this on the Night Out website.

The web address can be found on the drink koozie.

Jake Blecher coaches the Bear Cubs little league team. Based on the little league poster from part 1, Jake would have been at a game on March 8th during the time the catfisher was talking with Eddie.


Michele was at the courthouse on March 4th during the time “Helena” was talking with Eddie. So she could not be the catfisher.


Jacqueline is eliminated when the catfisher gives out information about themselves in the chat transcripts about their house number. “Not house with two odd digits” Since Jacqueline’s house number is 31, you can eliminate her.


Chad can be eliminated as a suspect when you piece together the torn-up letter. The letter reveals that the HOA vice president, which you know is Chad based on the HOA letter from part one, is out of the country without technology on March 9th. So he couldn’t have talked with Eddie on that date.


You will need to have all suspects eliminated and have completed the search on the Night Out website.

Final solution card

The scratch marks on the letters can be found in another place.

Look through Allison’s planner. On February 3, Allison made a note about finding scratch marks on her door.

The marks on her door are the order you need to read the letters on the stalker’s note. Start by reading the letters that have 3 scratches. The message will start with “I love to watch…”.

“I love to watch you work. You looked so beautiful in your new blue suit during your meeting.”

Start with the doodles. The stalker copied Allison’s doodles from her planner. Look through the planner and see if you can find anything that would connect the doodles to the list in the card. Each doodle is on its own day

What is the day’s date for each doodle? The rose is on the 1st so it would be 1. Use the planner to assign each doodle its number, then compare the numbers to the list in the card.

Use the first letter in the words from the list to translate the doodles. Since the rose is on the 1st it is one and the word that goes with one on the list is “Noble.” So, the rose should be translated as N. The message will start with “I love…”

“I love watching you jog in the morning.”

The text message has numbers and letters that stand out. Each sentence has one letter and one number that go together. In the first sentence you will get T8.

Use T8 with the grid on the purple paper. You will get “I”

The message will start with “I didn’t…”

“I didn’t know you liked to play frisbee.”

Allison's stolen ID badge was returned to her work desk along with a note. This is the note on the Product Rise paper. There are two red letters written by the stalker on Allison’s ID badge. There is a hint about the start point in the P.S. message on the Product Rise paper.

It mentions going from empty to filled. Start at the empty circle and work your way to the filled circle.Starting at I, use the path on the ID badge as a guide to navigate the letter grid on the Produce Rise paper.

You will get a readable message if you follow it correctly. The first I on the second row is the one you need to start at. The message will start with “I liked…”

“I liked watching you paint last night.”

This puzzle has two hints. One is on the paper itself when the stalker writes “I will remove anything that comes between us.”

The second hint can be found in Allison’s planner on February 15. Allison found the image of a man and woman holding hands and the words “Nothing Between Us.” Use these hints to remove certain letters and read what is left.

Remove all of the letters that are in between a man and a woman icon and read what is left. The message will start with “Who did you…”

“Who did you meet at cafe torrefie noir for coffee?”

Use the information that Zach Farris gives you with the symbols Justin Harris found around the door. The letters and symbols are broken into two groups.Make sure to keep them as two groups.

Follow the instructions about shifting the letters for the top section. If A shifts 5 to the right and then 2 the to left then A goes with the globe symbol. Make sure that all of the letters in the top section stay in the top section. This means that the K, L and M would just cycle back to the front.

Follow the instructions for the bottom set. So if N shifts 7 to the left and 2 to the right N would be on the empty vial symbol. The message will start with “Speak the…”

“Speak the words art and craft to enter.”

Code: artcraf

James mentions that the gym owner has a strange way of setting the locks for the lockers. Read Sebastian Ballard's interview which is found in the case notes. Use the numbers from the coupon Sebastian gives you with what is written on the locker.

Each of the weights in the coupon have a color and a number. In the message on the locker match the things to their traditional colors and use the numbers from the weights to complete the math.

Ex. “What is the difference between a clear sky and the sun?”Difference means subtraction and the sky is typical blue and the sun is yellow. So you should get 10 - 2 which gives you 8.

Code: 8248

Israel mentions that he specializes in weird designs. Use his business card with his door to get four numbers

The business card gives you the order you need. Count the number of times each design is used on Israel’s door.

Ex. The first design mentioned on the card is skulls and there are three skulls on the door. So the first number is three.

Code: 3721

You will need to have unlocked Israel’s apartment first. Look carefully at the album sleeves. There is something subtle that each one has in common.

The first letter in each of the band’s names is underlined. In the notes that Israel has about his neighbors he lists out the songs that Douglas is always listening to when he gets home from work.

Match the songs to the albums and use the underlined letters. The first three letters you get will be O, N, and E.

Code: 1905

In Leonard’s conversation he talks about his favorite superheroes.

The initials TS, GT, and MG are for Thunder Speed, Giga Titan, and Mighti Gal.

Use their names to answer the four questions in Leonard’s email hint to get four letters. The first letter you get will be P.

Code: path

The sticky note on Antonio’s safe is a hint.

Read Allsion’s description of Antonio.

Code: adonis

You will need to have the Anontio’s safe unlocked first. Inside Antonio’s safe you find a paper he has stolen from Ryan Knox

On the paper the phrase Carpe Diem is broken into three parts. Use the image of the phone keypad page to find the numerical value of each letter. Ex. C=2, A=2, and R=7

Then add up the numbers in each section. The first section will equal 11.

Code: 111016

You will need to have solved all puzzles up to this point and have eliminated 6 of the 9 suspects.

Match up the image of the painted fingers and toes with the wooden blocks. There are ten blocks in the top row and ten on the bottom row. The top row corresponds to the fingers, and the bottom row corresponds to the toes.

The numbers on the blocks give the order for which letters to pull. Ex. the number 1 is on the first block on the bottom row, so use the first letter from the toes, which is I. Then the number 2 is on the fifth block on the top row, so use the fifth letter from the fingers which is S.

The message will start with “I saw…”

“I saw u dance.”

The backs of the Polaroids have two configurations. Arranging the Polaroids so that you can read the message made with the larger letters will give you a hint on how to solve the spiral in the eye.

The hint, “My love will always surround U” emphasizes the U. The letters in the spiral are in groups of three. Starting on the outside, work your way into the center

Pull out and use any group that has U in the middle. Read just the letters to either side of the Us. The message will start with “Hey…”

Jeff Berry mentions something about the crew hands writing messages to each other using shorthand.

Use the vowels that Jeff gives you with the letters found on the napkin to create words. The letters are already in the correct order.

The first message will start with “Who keeps eating all of…”

Who keeps eating all the pizza?

I think it was one of the ladies

Ya, my guess is Luz, her manager won’t let her eat most of the time,

I agree, I have seen her sneaking food to her room.

Man I feel sorry for her, must be close to starving.

Hey do any of you know what happened to the safe? The password changed again.

Someone must have opened it. One of the producers has it set to change the password every time it is used. Try the next one in the sequence. I believe it is the seventh one.

First, untangle the wires by following each path from the number to the letter. Make note of the order of the letter you get from 1 through 6. The first letter is E.

Second, look on the circuit board and pay attention to the grouping of letters.

Since E was the first letter you got from untangling the wires, look at the group of Es. Notice that they are around the word RIGHT. That is the first word in the message you are trying to get. Once you have the whole message follow the directions and enter the code.

You will need to have solved the messages on the second napkin before you can complete this puzzle. The message on the second napkin mentions that the safe password is a code that changes. The message also mentions that the code follows a pattern

The numbers on the sticky note form a pattern. Examine the pattern in the first digit of each sequence. Examine the pattern in the second digit of each sequence.Continue with each additional digit, determining the pattern.

010880

010880

034575

050870

094565

110860

??????

??????-This is the number you are trying to determine.

Example

First digit-If you examine the pattern, you will notice that the numbers are increasing as 10,880 goes up to 34,575, etc. So when you get to 1 for the number 110860 the next logical number in the chain is also 1.

Second digit-The numbers go from 1 to 3 to 5 to 9 and then back to 1. So the next digit in that sequence is 3 and so on.

You will need to search the east suite in order to work this puzzle. Check the kitchen to find the clue you need.

The message you find on the counter mentions the recipe is as easy as A,B,C, which is a hint that this relates to the alphabet. The message also mentions you should number using the odds.

Write out the alphabet and then number the letters using only odd numbers. So A=1, B=3, C=5, etc. The first part of the recipe will read “Cook on…”

Cook on the stove for thirty minutes stirring constantly.

Sarah: “Rob, what do you mean it is a fake?”

Rob: “Just that Sarah, this isn't the real McClain medallion. I would know, I saw it enough times growing up.”

Sarah: “That means someone else got to it before me, but how? Your father finished his speech at 9:10 and I went up there around 9:40. That leaves only a half hour window.”

Rob: “Don’t worry about it. I will think of something, for now let’s keep this to ourselves.”

You will need to read the information on the back of each of the suspects’ cards. Use the family tree to help you see how the different families are grouped.

Rebecca’s family is “the family that has the mother’s name.”

The family member you can eliminate as a suspect is the youngest in the family of three.

Lindsay

Try to picture what each box would look like if you placed them on top of each other going down.

Each column of boxes will form a letter.

The symbols are above and below each letter they represent. Use this to fill in letters on puzzle number 4. Once you have, you will notice that there are still a few letters missing.

Fill in the letters for each symbol so that the message makes sense. The message will start with “Why would the…”

Why would the man stuck in second despite his age be chosen?

You need to have solved the recipe and listened to the whispered conversation from the east suite to unlock this.

rebeccasarah

Compare the oil from the fingerprint to the list of oil types.

Then compare the fingerprint to the list of fingerprints you have for each suspect.

This, paired with information found on Stephen’s card, will help you eliminate a suspect.

The oily fingerprint matches Kyle’s fingerprint.

Compare the list of suspects’ phone numbers to the call logs you have from the cell tower.

Make note of the time.

This information, paired with information found on Lindsay’s card, will help you eliminate a suspect.

Joshua’s phone number matches a number on the cell tower log list.

You will need to have unlocked the forensic envelope first.

Use the information found in puzzle number 5 and the blueprint to find the correct room. The clue about “eliminate the rooms that start with 11, 4, or 7” is referring to a numbered alphabet.

So eliminate any rooms that start with K, D, or G

pantry

You will need to have the “Wealth and Fortune” envelope unlocked first. Use the ice cream card with puzzle number 6.

Notice that the colors of the rectangles match the colors of the ice cream scoops. Place the card in each rectangle in order of the ice cream scoops

There should be a letter that lines up with the hole on the card. The first letter you get is N

Not Nick

You will need to have the “Wealth and Fortune” envelope unlocked first. Puzzle number 7 mentions a queen. Do you have an item that would go with that?

Solution Card (Who Killed Sinclair LeCompt?)



One of the first objectives that Sinclair instructs you to complete is to determine which game piece and Secret card corresponds to each suspect.

Colored Game Pieces: The back of each suspect card contains information that will identify which color of game piece represents them. Read carefully.

Secret Cards: Assigning the correct secret to the right suspect involves playing the game (see next page).

Once you know who corresponds to each color, you can play the board game.

Sinclair has provided what each player rolls for their first 4 turns. Determine what the final number each color lands on

Take note of the rule in the bottom right hand corner of the game board. Example: Red rolls 3, rolls 2, rolls 5, and rolls 3. By moving the red piece along the game board according to the number of each roll, you will land on 13. However, the second roll landed you on a gift which is worth an additional 2 points. So Red ends with a final score of 15, complete for all colors. Once you know what color corresponds to each suspect you can use the information Sinclair provides on the hotel stationery to also determine what their secret is.

Scores/Secrets:


Red-15 (mobster): Harlan McAllister

Green-20 (drug-dealer): Lucy Vu

Black-35 (kleptomaniac): Mona Allegra

Blue-32 (ex-con): Jackson Ellis

White-36 (smuggler): Diego Murillo

Yellow-33 (assassin): Frederick Ellsworth

Notice that opening the briefcase requires 6 digits to unlock (3 digit combination on the left and 3 digit combination on the right)

Once you know each player’s total score for the game you can use the 6 digits to gain access to the briefcase

The note on top of the briefcase tells you which players and the order to use their scores.

361520

Once you have opened the briefcase, you will get a very helpful piece of information that will tell you how to access the safe.

Pay special attention to what colors need to be added together to make other colors

This indicates that you should add the values of the two colors to equal the value of the colors drawn on the safe. Ex: yellow + red = orange (so add yellow and red’s scores to get the value for orange). Pay special attention to Sinclair’s note at the bottom of the color wheel.

464764

Once you gain access to the safe, there is a note from Sinclair with instructions about a secret he discovered behind the wardrobe.

He lists 4 very specific locations that you should search. Scan the Search Sinclair LeCompt’s room and click on each of the places he instructs in his letter.

Enter the numbers in order according to the letter. Proceed and pay special attention. This unlock eliminates a suspect

8274

Start by reading Rosemary Clark’s thoughts, the newspaper article, and Sinclair’s notes.

Sinclair mentions a secret in the piano. Accessing this is the first goal of the Envelope #2.

This puzzle is designed to be completed 5 different times (one for each mobster)

Each gangster has a set of directions on the back of their photo that should be used to navigate the grid. Begin at the star each time. The first and last letter for each gangster’s puzzle corresponds to their specific color.

The same colors are attached to each last name as they were in the tabletop game from Sinclair’s hotel room. (Example: Lucy Vu corresponds to the green game piece in part 1 so Harold Vu’s directions begin at the green letter.) You should end up with two or three words for each gangster that are formed from letters from the grid using their specific directions. Example: Harold’s directions say, “Can move diagonally in any direction one space at a time.” Begin on the star and go to the green letter which is an F. Using the rule and moving around the grid, you can create the words “First Black Key” which ends on the green letter Y. Repeat this process for all 5 gangsters. First three steps for each gangster below

Harold Vu: “First Black Key”

Carmine Allegra: “White Four”

Len Murillo: “Sixth Black”

Bert Ellsworth: “Fifth White Key”

Sonny McAllister: “Last Key”

*See below for a diagram on how each was solved.


Once you have successfully gotten the message associated with each gangster, you will notice that it refers you to a specific piano key

Example: Vu from the previous step’s puzzle says, “First Black Key.” The letter on the first black key of the piano is E.

Find the correct letter that corresponds to each gangster. Use the order of the names at the bottom of the piano keys to tell you the correct order to use the letters. You will be spelling a 5 letter word. Once you have the word you can use it to unlock the secret hidden in the old piano.

booze

When reading the back of Emerald Carter’s photograph, her handwritten note mentions a secret elevator

The combination requires a specific set of ingredients. You should have found the recipe for this drink inside the piano (see previous step).

Note: pay special attention to what Emerald says about diluting the ingredients. Consult the ingredients listed on each of the 3 drink recipes and reduce those specific numbers by the amount Emerald tells you in her note. Unlock the secret elevator, eliminate another suspect by what you learn. You then open the envelope sealed with the Elevator Symbol

1525330

Sinclair’s last communication to you talks about a poker game and instructs you to determine who won

There are 3 hands of poker (one on the back of each book cover). Play out each hand using the mini deck of cards and the poker hand rankings guide to see which gangster is the winner of each hand. One of the gangsters wins 2 out of 3 and would be considered the winner of the game

Use the full name of the gangster who won the 1931 poker game to unlock the card. You should be able to eliminate two additional suspects after unlocking the file

Round 1: Allegra wins

Round 2: Vu wins

Round 3: Allegra wins


Allegra wins the most hands in the poker game.

After determining the winner of the card game, you will receive one part of the information needed to unlock this card.

The second part can be found by consulting the Will Street Detective Agency business card and going to their Facebook page

On the note from The Helper, you will notice that he mentions three different shapes and a snowflake. Take a close look at the three Polaroid photos with the rings of letters surrounding a triangle, circle, and star. Using the notes from The Helper, lay the snowflake across the Polaroids to get the correct letters that you need to get the hidden message.

Note that on each ring of letters there is an underlined letter, this is the start point for each photo. If you lay the snowflake across the photo with the top of the snowflake (where the hole is) pointing north it will cover six of the letters. Use the letters that remain, starting with the underlined letter

You should get the letters “I T I S N O” The message you get will help you eliminate a suspect

“It is not Bob Cratchit.”

This eliminates Timothy Butler.

On Victor’s dressing room door, it reads “Which list…” What item in the box could this be referring to? Notice the “Naughty and Nice List” has all the names of the cast and crew members and the door also lists different groupings of cast and crew members.

There is a hint on the door that mentions the word trace. How could you use this hint with the “Naughty and Nice List”? Trace the names on the “Naughty and Nice List” that you find on the door. Think of it as connecting the dots.

You will be creating four numbers when you trace the names. This will unlock Victor’s dressing room door

6352

Need to have Victor’s dressing room door unlocked. The symbols drawn on the mirror in Victor’s dressing room should remind you of something else that relates to Christmas. Match the symbols on the mirror to the 12 days of Christmas.

You should have two simple math problems that will help you complete the message. The first math problem you get should be 12, divided by 4, then minus 2. The second math problem you get should be 1, plus 3 plus 7, then minus 8.

This message will help you eliminate a person if you look carefully through the “A Christmas Carol” cast list

“Not the one with three faces.”

This eliminates Mark Phillips since he is the only actor with three roles.

You found some letters painted in various colors. Where else have you seen all of those colors? On the note left from The Helper, notice the row of different colors across the bottom.

Using the order of the colored lines from The Helper’s note, fill in the painted letters to get a message. (Black = space) The message should start with “The murderer…”

This message will help you eliminate a suspect after you’ve completed the secret Santa puzzle

“The murderer is not Victor’s Secret Santa.”

Need to have Victor’s dressing room door unlocked

Use Chloe Davis’ interview with the gift tag from Victor’s room.

Focus on filling in the Secret Santa list using the ones that you know for sure based on the interview with Chloe and the gift tag found in Victor’s dressing room. Once you have done that, filling in the rest should be a little bit easier.

Victor -> Rachel

Rachel -> Timothy

Timothy -> Joanna

Joanna -> Bethany

Bethany -> Mark

Mark -> Hannah

Hannah -> Nicholas

Nicholas-> Victor

Need to have Victor’s dressing room door unlocked first.

You will need to finish the Secret Santa puzzle to get what you need to unlock Abigail’s information. Use Chloe Davis’ interview, with the gift tag from Victor’s room, to fill in the names of who is who’s Secret Santa

Focus on filling in the Secret Santa list using the ones that you know for sure based on the interview with Chloe and the gift tag found in Victor’s dressing room. Once you have done that filling in the rest should be a little bit easier

vrtjbmhn

Need to unlock Abigail Wilson information first. Abigail mentions that to get the case open will take a little bit of math. She also gives you the order needed for the numbers.

To get the numbers look at the Christmas decorations on the shelves. The numbers at the end of each row and at the top of each column represent the total value of each row and column.

If you are having trouble with the puzzle, try focusing on the bottom row and second column.

3411

The keys you find in the storage case have a message on them along with several letters. How many letters come between each set of letters?

The numbers you get here will help you unlock the car. Once the car is unlocked you should find something that will help you eliminate a suspect.

Make sure you remember who the key belongs to in order to know which suspect to eliminate.

456211

Need to have the storage case unlocked.

You have two things that relate to a Christmas tree. Pair them up and see what you get. Use the Christmas card with the blinking lights video

The letters you get from this will spell out a message that will help you eliminate a suspect after you have gotten the storage case opened. The message should start with. “Not the…”

“Not the writer of the love note.”

Need to have Abigail’s information unlocked. In the soundbooth, you found a few different things, one of which was “Joanna's playlist.” It would not play properly and kept skipping at certain times. Pair this with the information that Abigail gives you.

Pay special attention to the note from The Helper that was found in the sound booth. It is a hint on how to work this puzzle. “I can’t get the lines and words …”

Use the minute marker as the number of the song in the list Abigail gives you and the second marker as the word in the song title. The message should start with “Hark is…"

“Hark is first, cold comes after hark, last is night.”

Need to have Abigail’s information unlocked. You will need to have solved the first part of this puzzle which is Joanna’s playlist.

In the soundbooth, you found a wall that was crumbling and had words written on the bricks. Pair this with the message he leaves about the presents and you will notice that the numbers in each row and column for the bricks and presents match

Using the words you got from the song, which should be three words, match them up to the bricks and then match them up to the presents. This should help you eliminate a suspect.

Hark = Killer

Cold = Is Not

Night = Joanna

Find the value of each decoration.

The numbers above and to the side tell you the sum of each row and column.

Nutcracker = 1

Christmas Tree = 3

Snowman = 4

Santa = 7

You will need to have eliminated all but one suspect to do this puzzle.

The robot has a riddle for you.

Here is a transcript of what he is asking: Number two: I am the first in everything but the second in death. You can only see me once in a year, but I can always be found in the middle of the sea. What am I?

Answer the riddle for the second component to The Hall of Cursed Toys solution.

(number 2): the letter ‘e

Cuddle Bear is one of the most popular exhibits at the museum.

Kids love him but don’t realize how dangerous he really is. You should have a cuddle bear coloring sheet from the gift shop.

The History of Poisons brochure contains a website that you should visit. Go to the section for Museum Nocturnus and be sure to use the crayons.

Use the key to transpose the correct letters and get the information about which of the murderers in The Hall of Murderers couldn’t possibly be responsible

the dever ancestor is not a woman (rules out The Scarlet Lady)

You are given the name of the pen’s owner.

Notice how his name is spelled at the bottom of the card. This isn’t a misprint. It’s a hint to how the puzzle works

“From the desk of Fane Uichards…” Given that the writer’s name is Cane, this misspelling tells you the number of spaces to skip along the alphabet.

Hannah’s killer isn’t found in the stars (rules out Gemini)

The key to this puzzle is in the last sentence

To be a member of the inner circle you must be willing to take one step to the right.

Rotate the inner circle one step to the right. Use what you end up with to decode the message.

Mephisto isn’t the killer (rules out Mephisto)

After you’ve solved all of the haunted item puzzles, you have excluded all of those featured in The Hall of Murderers except one

This is the name you should use here.

Pay special attention to the underlined content.

mrnothing

You are asked for two things to solve the box: the last name of the suspect who killed Father Casey and what was used to kill him.

Part 1

1. By taking all three underlined components from the three hall unlocks, you should learn something very specific about the person who killed Father Casey.

2. Examine the actual name of the murderer from The Hall of Murderers that you couldn’t eliminate. You should find one of the suspect names that corresponds with what you learned from the underlined message.

3. Something else that will help narrow this down is to examine the time of death determined by the Death Watch and use the S.T.A.L.K. document that lists people who had access to the museum. You should be able to eliminate several suspects based on this


Part 2

1. On the S.T.A.L.K. website, the boy left two messages. One of them related to Cuddle Bear you should have already used.

2. The second message relates to the poisons listed on the History of Poisons brochure.

3. This should give you the second part of the final password

Solution


John Smith’s initial note mentions a map and lists 4 places in Valley Falls.

He then goes on to mention the point where everything converges. This is a clue about what to do.Find the place where all four locations converge.

The mention of “picking up stakes” is important because it literally means to pick your pencil up from the map and relocate it. Draw lines between points 1 and 2. Then pick up stakes and connect locations 3 and 4. The place where they meet provides a portion of the computer password.

Rich Botanical Gardens

Locate the half sheet showing various framed pictures.

Count the number of each item listed in the notebook. You are asked for the following:

Victims with more than one eye. This means actual eyes, not eye sockets.

Single eyes and open flames. Again, eyes not eye sockets.
-Half the amount of vacant human eye sockets. There are 5 skulls with two sockets each in one photo (the broken skull should be excluded from the count) and one skull with two sockets in another photo. Take the total number of eye sockets and divide by 2.
-Total number of eyes and sockets (human or otherwise). Use last digit only. If you count the eyes and sockets of the skulls, the pumpkins, the doll heads, the victims, and count the single eyes as well you will get a two digit total. Use the second digit of that number.
You will get a 4 digit passcode that can be used to open the blue door.

2667

You are asked for the following:
-Victims with more than one eye. This means actual eyes, not eye sockets. There
are only two people shown with more than one eye.
-Single eyes and open flames. Again, eyes not eye sockets. There are three single eyes shown in the frames and three flames on the fingers of the hand. This gives you 6 for the second number.
-Half the amount of vacant human eye sockets. There are 5 skulls with two sockets each in one photo (the broken skull should be excluded from the count since it doesn’t show any eye sockets) and one skull with two sockets in another photo. This gives you a total number of 12 vacant human eye sockets. Take the total number of eye sockets and divide by 2. That gives you 6 for the third number.
-Total number of eyes and sockets (human or otherwise). Use last digit only. If you count the eyes and sockets of the skulls, the pumpkins, the doll heads, the victims, and count the single eyes as well you will get a two digit total of 47. Use the second digit of that number which is 7

John Smith tells you that the other half of the computer password is found in the room under the stairs.

When you open the blue door, you will see 4 words. In the notebook, John Smith tells you that all you need to do is say the words out loud.

Say each word aloud and determine what phrase he has written in an unconventional way. Note: if you’ve ever played the game Mad Gab you may understand this better. When you obtain the phrase, pull the word out that could be used to describe John Smith.

Devil in Disguise (word you will use is devil)

By completing #1 and #2 in the notebook you should have both words needed to unlock the computer (see previous if you don’t have these).

When you unlock the computer, there is a file folder in the center of the page.

Click it and watch the video that John Smith has left behind.

richdevil

John Smith mentions a specific starting point.

Find it on the map of Valley Falls. He tells you that the intersections are all that matter

The video taken from the computer should have given you a series of directions obtained from the way the knife points in each frame. Begin at the starting intersection and go the direction that the video tells you to. You will end up on a specific road. Take note of this location. It will be used later.

cheshirerd

The first line refers to the red door card that is in your box.

“Everything connects if you look hard enough” is a clue. You should also have a sheet with a variety of taxidermied animals.

Connect each string of numbers listed on the back of the sheet and see what letters you form. You should end up with a 4-letter word. Use the word you obtain to unlock the red door. Follow the directions on the unlock and obtain a second 4-letter word.

kill

The ending to the first portion of the box asks you to use the name of the location where John Smith felt most alive.

You should have gotten this from following the directions provided in the knife video on John Smith’s computer.

The unlock also asks for the word behind the red door. Use both components (no caps, no spaces) and unlock the end of part 1 of Lair.

cheshirerdprey
Cheshire Rd is taken from puzzle #3 in the notebook and prey is taken from the video behind the red door

Examine the victim card with the heart locket.

The notebook contains a clue about this and mentions that two hearts joined together are like “mirror images of each other.”

Imagine how the letters on one side of the locket would correspond to certain letters on the opposite side of the locket if it were closed. To decode the message, take each letter on the left and find its corresponding partner on the right.

Examine the circular drawing in the notebook.

Find the victim who was discovered wearing a bracelet.

Each number corresponds to a specific bead on the bracelet. Decode the message.

Member Number Two Three Four Eight

Find the victim with the watch.

The clue in the notebook mentions “going by the numbers.”

Rewrite each line of letters in numeric order. Read from top to bottom.

I have enjoyed our times together Sara. From Alistair.

Notice the different colored X’s on the skull.

Notice the last written page in the notebook has those same colors.

The beads on the back of the victim card correspond to the squares in on the notepad drawing. Stars denote starting places. Find the correct letters and write them in order using the colors to help.

Pw is agony

Phil Herbert assisted you before on the Easthaven Forest case and is willing to do so again if you can solve the riddle he poses.

Answer the riddle and unlock the computer.

The information found on the computer will help identify Victim 5.

fire

Once you’ve unlocked the VFPD computer you should gain access to a report of the most recent missing persons.

Find the name and identity that seems to match the picture of the victim.

Use her last name to unlock.

westerhouse

To complete this step you will need two pieces of information. The first piece you gained from solving the puzzle with the different lettered beads.
2. Enter the password as directed and meet Ellsworth.

Ellsworth is the gatekeeper at The Cerberus Club, and he isn’t going to let you pass until you have provided a full set of initials and a member id number.
2. The killer has provided all of this information in clues he left with the other four victims.
3. You will need 3 letters and 4 numbers to get past Ellsworth and into the club.

Password to gain access (part 1): agony
Password to get past Ellsworth (part 2): aex2348

Notice that all 3 of the medical drawings you have are numbered.

The first one requires additional information on the blood-stained letter from the killer. Examine his last paragraph.

Locate each of the places on the skeleton mentioned in the letter and obtain the corresponding letter from the skeletal chart. You should end up with a 6 letter word.

letter

The killer has written two notes at the top that say ‘It’s as easy as A-B-C” and “the body thrives when everything is in order.”

Both of these are clues.

Find out which letter of the alphabet each number corresponds to (A=1, B=2, etc). Arrange the letters in the correct order to make a 5-letter word.

after

Several letters are circled.

You are told to add up the letters and see what you get. This uses the reverse method from Medical Drawing #2.

Determine which number (1-26) each letter is represented by (1=A, 2=B, etc, add the numbers up, then determine which letter of the alphabet you end up with.

20 which corresponds to the letter t

In his letter, the killer has tasked you with determining who his next victim will be

To do so, you will need the answers to all three of the medical drawing puzzles.

Put the answers you’ve gotten in order and you will be directed to a specific letter of the alphabet.Alistair’s letter has an underlined portion that says “When you’ve learned the identity of the next victim be sure to spell it out.” The identity of the next victim is a three-letter word.

you

The 3 medical puzzles say: letter after T (which is u). Alistair tells you to spell out what you find. So u spelled out would be ‘you.

In the last bag you open, you should have a basement image with a series of numbers at the bottom.

2. The rules for how to use those numbers with the chessboard are the last two sentences on the page.

Determine the right letter that goes with each number (using the chessboard) and you should end up with an 8-letter word.

headache

The note by the phone says, “Use what ails you to dial for help.”

The 8-letter word you got from the chessboard is an ailment.

Translate each letter to a number using the phone’s keypad. This series of numbers will unlock the QR code.

85141385

The solution card asks you to provide the killer’s real name.

When you unlock the phone QR you should notice a label on the bottle.

Consult the list from The Cerberus Club for the favorite drink of every member and find the member who favors that particular drink. Use the name to solve the box.

Part 2 – Given to you by Dante Fratesi

sorceryfratty

This is accessible only once you have been instructed to open the feather bag.

There are multiple symbols on this sheet that appear on another item that you get from the feather bag. You should see this symbol or a version of it on the red/black/white voodoo priest card.Notice where the red skulls are in relation to this symbol.

One of the red skulls should be in the middle of two of these symbols. But the second symbol is flipped in the opposite direction. Look on the sheet with the red skull in the background. Take the letters that appear in between each group to form a statement.

SETTHEDRUMMERFREE – SET THE DRUMMER FREE (eliminates the suspect who plays the drums)

Notice that the song list is numbered and the first letter of each song is in bold. Use the numbers from the vision of Jean-Pierre and the bold letter that corresponds to those numbers to form a statement.

NEWGIRLISPURE – NEW GIRL IS PURE

This is accessible only once you have been instructed to open the feather bag. Unlock The Path of Madness

You are provided with candle locations. Notice that the diagram matches up to the modern day seating blueprint. Read the personal account of Terry Hebert and pay attention to the underlined statement. This statement is telling you that the candles are in their FINAL location AFTER a ritual had been performed.

Listen to the arrowhead audio from Jean-Pierre. This audio gives you the instructions of the ritual START TO FINISH. Jean-Pierre had more to say, “determine who corresponds to the location of the orange candle before the ritual instructions were performed and be assured that they are innocent.” So, you need to figure out who had the orange candle BEFORE the ritual was performed. You know the FINAL location of each candle AFTER the ritual was performed (The Path of Madness diagram). And you know the ritual instructions START TO FINISH from the arrowhead audio. Take the candle diagram from The Path of Madness and work the ritual instructions backwards. You work them backwards because you are needing to do everything in reverse to get them back to where they were at the beginning. So, start with the last ritual instruction and work your way towards the first one. Also, make note that if an instruction was counter-clockwise that in order to go in reverse you will need to go clockwise. Once you have done this, compare the candle locations with the modern day blueprint seating and see which suspect corresponds to the orange candle.

Orange candle corresponds to Tamika

To bring back the life, you must give the life.
Two spots counter-clockwise all colors must go
Then one for the other, only swap black and yellow
With just one color straight across, the red must be changed
From orange, two spots counter-clockwise swap only that color with orange
One spot counter-clockwise all colors must go
To bring back the life, you must give the life.
Give the life of the one holding onto the black.

Follow the directions from the audio you get from Charles White.

Green connects to 4. So the 4 is the first number since green is the first color from left to right.

This will implicate a person.

Just scan, it is not locked. There is a card with Xs on it that gives a hint on where to search.

One part of the room is clickable. Once you find it you will be prompted for a password.

You won't be able to open it until you have opened the envelope.

Click on the picture behind Albert’s desk.

Does anything else you have go with WW2? Try looking through the museum brochure. Take a close look at the code machine photo.

The dots on the back of the WW2 poster match the dots with letters on the code machine. The arrows show how the letters are swapped. So A=W and vice versa.

The message should start with “Tyrene…” This will implicate at least one person.

Tyrene meet me at the side door tonight I can't wait to see you Daniel F

You will need to have unlocked the security login to proceed.

Noah gave a hint to the locker combination in his interview. Look again at the security login file.

Note that one of the codes used is not like the others.

The phrase “it will be magical” is a hint. What else do you have that relates to magic?

Use the “Magic Throughout History” poster with the number number message you have on the card. The numbers indicate what letter you should pull from the message on the poster.

So 1 would be C, 2 would be O, 3 would be M, etc. The message should start with “Hey…”

“Hey Slim, break into McCains office find details of artifact shipment.”

Pay close attention to the height and weight mentioned.

Use the employee records to find out who climbed in through the window.

This will implicate a person.

Craig Zinkiewicz is the only person that meets the description.

Some people may be implicated more than once. What you find on the phone from the evidence room will implicate at least one person. What you find from the security login will implicate at least one person.

What you find from the security camera will implicate one person. What you find from the coded message on the back of the WW2 poster will implicate at least one person.

What you find from examining the crime scene will implicate one person. Noah’s nickname is on the card you find in his locker. You will need to translate the number message to get it.

Just scan, it is not locked.

Search the office carefully.

Click on the books that are on the desk. You should find a message written on a post-it note.

You need to search Tyrene’s office first. Where else have you seen the 4 things written on the post-it note you found in Tyrene’s office?

Take a look at the 4 paintings. Count the things in the paintings. And use the order of the post-it note.

You should be able to eliminate two suspects.

Follow the direction from the horoscope and pair it with the crossword.

The words in the crossword puzzle are the roads and streets the horoscope is referencing. When you stop to pick up something you are picking up a letter.

You should get 5 letters all together. The first letter you get is U.

union

If you use the word you get from the crossword and horoscope puzzle, what would you type into the keypad? Use the numbers not the letters.

So the first number is 8 since U is on the 8 button.

You should be able to eliminate a suspect.

The password hint has what you need. Look over the list of tools that is on the cork board.

Notice that there are letters for each tool. So Mallet would get you D.

You should be able to eliminate a suspect.

The items in the pouch will be used to unlock the circus, the bar, the tattoo parlor, and the arcade.

Blow up the balloon so you can read the words on both sides.

“Under the big top you’ll find one…”

Count what you have on both sides and make an easy association to come up with a word that would make sense in The Collector’s twisted game. Use it to unlock the circus. Take note of the symbol that you find and its meaning.

foot

Examine the bottle opener in the pouch.

Use the arrows to determine which way to move along the alphabet. Shift each letter in the correct direction.

Use the word you obtain to unlock the bar. Take note of the symbol you find there and what it means.

finger

Pay special attention to the name of the arcade and the slogan.

Also take note of the words with stars above them. Examine the arcade token and note that stars and an eagle’s head are both featured on one side.

The slogan refers, in part, to the direction the eagle’s head is facing. Move in that direction from each of the stars and use the word you obtain to unlock the arcade. Take note of the symbol you find and what it means.

eye

Examine the sticker you have in your pouch.

Notice the graffiti message on the side of the tattoo parlor wall. Do what the graffiti message says literally with regard to the letters on the sticker

Take the remaining letters and use them to form a word that would be significant to The Collector. Use this to unlock the tattoo parlor. Take note of the symbol you find there and its value.

tongue

The beginning brief gives you two places to start: the business card or the pouch of items.

If you start with the business card, it mentions giving The Collector a call and says maybe you’ll Get Lucky (there is a card with this at the top). Notice that the grid on the lottery ticket and the grid of apps on the phone correspond.

Use the numbers from the lottery ticket to give you the correct order for the apps. *Note: Pay special attention to the last sentence on the business card. It is important. **Note 2: Also pay special attention to the person who owns this phone (phone background). This information will be needed to move forward.

Message 1: Start at library (taken from the app letters)
Message 2: Go to the start point. Enter student id number and last name to access.

The messages you get from the cell phone provide specific information on how to gain access to the library

The map of Valley Falls University and the ID card belonging to the owner of the phone will be needed for this.

Make sure to keep up with every location on the map you find.

2563766drake

When you unlock the library, you obtain this book and find a message taped to the back.

The Collector instructs you to “use the name of the building you end up with to talk to my puzzled lady friend.” You should have a sheet in your box that features a series of puzzle pieces that says “I’m puzzled.”

Count the number of each puzzle piece shape on the ‘I’m puzzled’ sheet and use that to complete the equation on the taped note. The number you end up with provides the location to location number two on the map and also provides the answer to unlock the card featuring a woman’s face made entirely of puzzle pieces. Note: To get the correct answer, you may have to rotate or flip some of the pieces for an accurate count.

shelleyhall (location 10)

You should have a maze with a skull at the top.

Work this as you would a normal maze and obtain a fact that will be useful. Once you’ve unlocked the puzzle piece woman, you will obtain a notepad with the same skull at the top as the one on the maze.

This puzzle will give you two different message (one from completing the maze and one by substituting the words from the notepad with the words in the maze that lie on the correct path). Substitute the words from the notepad with the words on the correct path of the maze. This will give you location number three and tell you how to unlock the self portrait. Make sure to take note of these.

Message 1: What a coincidence that one victim and location three both share the same name.
Message 2: Use identification number to unlock my self portrait and learn about location number four.
Location 3: Paisley Hall

Use the information gained from the maze puzzle along with the information from the correct ID badge to unlock this.

(taken from Paisley Hall’s id and gained by information learned from completing the maze puzzles): 3157382

When you unlock the self-portrait (see previous step) you will obtain a card for the Valley Falls Computer Science Program.

One side of the SD card corresponds to the left side of the Computer Science Program Card. The other side of the SD card applies to the right side of the Computer Science Program Card.

Left Side-find that letter on the Computer Science Program Card that matches up to the numbers (in order going from 1-20). Example: 1=H, 2=A, etc). Do this for all of the numbers and obtain a message about location 4. Right Side-use the flip side of the SD card to determine the order of colors. The first color mentioned is red. Find all of the red letters and use them to form a word. (First word = Ali’s). Repeat this for the additional colors, going in the order they are mentioned. You will find out something useful that will be used with the Movie poster.

1. Left Side Answer-Harris Hall is Stop Four
2. Right Side Answer-Ali’s Major Opens The Cinema

One of the messages gained from the SD card puzzles will provide the information needed to unlock this.

You will also need information off of one of the ID cards. Once you’ve unlocked the file, you will see a message that is difficult to read.

There is a hint in the upper left hand corner of the Horrors/Cinema poster that will help with reading this. If squinting doesn’t help reading this, try tilting your device and reading this from the side.

accounting (gained by solving one of the SD card puzzles and using Ali’s major from her ID card to unlock)
The unlock to this gives you: location 5 Carlton Building

Once you find all 5 locations, you need to determine what to do with them. The directions on the back of this card should help.

Each step is numbered and written in a different font

Read each step in the correct order and use the location numbers you’ve found to determine how to gain access to the eye in the sky. Use what you learn to unlock the card that says “The Eye in the Sky Sees All!”

1. Take the numbers of the five locations and add them together.
2. You will end up with a two digit number.
3. Add those two digits together rto find the location that will give you information about who I am.
4. Use the name of the building to gain access to the eye in the sky.

The number of each location is as follows: library (5), Shelley Hall (10), Paisley Hall (7), Harris Hall (32), and Carlton Building (18)

Add all the location numbers together and you should end up with 72. Add those two digits together and you obtain the number 9. Location 9 on the map is security.

When you unlock the Eye in the Sky card, the security guard not only tells you The Collector’s real name but also says that he left some information for you on one of the security systems. It involves using the year Rhonda was born and the hidden message on her picture.

You will need the Polaroid photo for this and Rhonda’s ID card. You should notice that in the Polaroid The Collector has left some of his symbols on the chair that Rhonda is sitting in.

Note: These symbols don’t correspond with the same letters that The Collector used in part 1. Locating the four victims will be required to learn the value for each symbol (see unlocking the circus, the bar, the arcade, and the tattoo parlor). The security guard also mentions things running like clockwork. That’s a hint on how to read what you unlock.

luvlri2000

When you gain access to the Valley Falls University security system, you discover that The Collector has patched you in to the locations where all four victims have been found.

He has left you a message that is read by going in a clockwise direction.

The message provides the password to unlock the 345 location.

patchwork

When you unlock the 345 Eagle Street address, you obtain a fingerprint and a set of handprints.

Determine which fingerprint on the card matches the one on the unlock. Take note of the number of the fingerprint. The handprints on the unlock provide the way to decode the numbers associated with that fingerprint.

Determine which fingers the fingerprint value matches up with on the card and translate that number using what you’ve unlocked. The Collector also tells you to use Paulina’s special number. Use the translated number you find along with the number found hidden on Paulina’s ID card. Take note of the information found on The Collector’s word badge.

36325

Once you unlock the handprint card and rescue Rhonda, she gives you a clue about how to decode the card featuring Prometheus.

Her clue involves moving backwards and forwards along the alphabet.

Once you have the answer to this, you will have part of the answer to the final solution.

up on roof

The components for the final solution will be found on the Prometheus puzzle solution and the Handprints unlock.

Take note of the blanks on the final solution card. This tells you how many characters you will use.

Listen to all messages. One message tells you the answer.

april

When you look in the chat transcript you see that (TheKoolAidMan) says “Umm password??” The response by the original poster is “What music is IN cognito?” This is telling you that you are looking for something hidden inside of the word cognito. Find the word cognito on the page.

Look at the screen name of the person that started the chat.

The letters in italics spell the word cognito. So, look at the letters in between or “IN cognito” and that will be the password to unlock the Feel the Music code.

techno

Read the note carefully. You are provided instructions within the note on what to do with the note. The instruction you are given is “take the words here made with 4 and appear only one time”.

Look through the entire note and pull out the words made with 4 letters that appear only one time in the note. You should find 4 words that have 4 letters that appear only one time.

The last line reads “Can you feel it?” and this information is with the victim Amanda Limoges. Notice that on the Den of Thieves sheet that the post reads “Can you feel it??” c/o Amanda L. These items connect.

wish, take, made, only

Make sure you solve the Thornmire County Evidence note. Once you have unlocked the Den of Thieves, the first image you see gives you instructions on what to do with the information that you gained from the Thornmire County Evidence note.

Take the words that you found in the note, in the order that you found them, and spell them. With the graphic you get for each letter in the video, combine all 4 graphics (4 letters) for each word and see what you create.

Since you have 4 words, you will end up with 4 new creations. The result will be 4 numbers. *Note – these numbers might not be used immediately.

Take notice of the text message that mentions tracking a package. This is a website that can be accessed. Visit the website and take note of what is needed there. This will be used at a later time. Back to the Mom Text Messages. There are 4 texts that come through with what looks like random letters. There is a piece of Evidence found with this case that can help you decode those texts.

Exhibit B. Notice there are letters in each statement that are underlined. In each statement, these are the letters that are to be swapped. For example, U is D means U=D, I is O means I=O, etc. The final line reads “Part of the key is here. Figure out the rest.” Notice the pattern that you have been given with the underlined letters and use that pattern to figure out the remaining substitutions.

Once you have decoded the messages, you will be given instructions for the office photo. You will end up with 4 numbers. *Note – these numbers might not be used immediately.

Text 1- Count what is red and that is the first
Text 2- For the second you need all of the tools for marking
Text 3- Third is obtained with eyewear plus food
Text 4- Finally the fourth you get when you count all the notes
Solution 4735

Reference “Mom Text Messages” here.

Unlock the “Will Street Detective Agency Login card” first. This was not in the envelope but was initially out in the box. Use the information from Exhibit D on the Evidence sheet with the information that Benjamin gives you on his yellow legal paper note about the CD.

Notice that the center of the CD fits around the black circles on Exhibit B-1. Also, notice that on the back of Exhibit B-1 is a compass. The audio file from the “Will Street Detective Agency Login card” gives you directions for the CD and for Exhibit B-1.

The first audio clue says “From I look W.” Place the center of the CD over the I. You are told to look W (W=west). The first letter that is to the west is the letter “O”. Continue this process until you have found a letter for each audio clue. You will end up with 4 numbers. *Note – these numbers might not be used immediately.

Post-It Note


Marjorie Garcia drew a diagram of the homes in the area of Fairmont Estates (Where Each Suspect Lives)

Use her descriptions of each suspect (Marj’s Thoughts From Behind The Wall) to connect each symbol on the home diagram to each suspect.

Percentage - Sandra St. Laurent
Question Mark - Lloyd Faulkner
Tree - Matt Parrish
: ) - Mark Gavit
Hat - Cynthia Jahs
Fire - Charles Payne
Red F - Donna McNeil
Asterisk - Jonny Lee

In her “Help!” letter the second thing Marjorie instructs you to do is access the root cellar. She provides a set of instructions that should be useful.

She tells you to “match” things up which points toward the match puzzle. She also tells you that Jack might be able to help (he has additional instructions on how to work this particular puzzle).

Use the instructions that Marjorie and Jack provide to determine a numerical combination for the lock that will allow you to access the root cellar. Remember that opposing directions cancel each other out so you can eliminate those from consideration.

223142

To play and see if you are an instant winner enter the last 4 digits of the transaction number from the receipt to unlock the file.

In a note that she left, Marjorie says, “I recommend a burger and a good book when taking the red eye.” Use the red lens from the 3D glasses to view the hidden numbers in the burger unlock. **Note: Do not wear the glasses. Hold the red lens over the image like a magnifying glass.

These numbers provide the correct order for the list of books she provided on the “More Thoughts From Behind the Wall by Marj” sheet. List the books in the correct order. Read the first letter of each book title. ***Note: If you are unable to see the numbers for any reason, you can watch a video of how this works here:

Numbers Found In Hidden Message Contained In Burger Card Unlock: 2, 10, 1, 4, 6, 5, 11, 7, 3, 9, 8

The little library has a placard hanging underneath that says “What is here?”

The question is one that you answer from the previous puzzle involving the burger instant win card, the burger receipt, the 3d glasses, and the list of book titles.

Take the answer from the previous puzzle solution and use to unlock. This is a two word answer (no caps, no spaces).

acult

Jack mentions a door with a chain fastened in a star pattern with a strange lock at the end of the tunnel beneath the wishing well.

You have another strange diagram with a riddle at the bottom that begins with “Make a wish…”The word ‘wish’ is the key to link these two. The riddle tells you that you are looking for a name (“name the one”)

It also says “Use most once, use one twice.”Notice that two of the Roman numerals are circle once but one is circled twice. Match up the Roman numerals that are circled with the number that corresponds to them on the lock that is pictured on the back of the Star Door card. Use the letter that matches up with that particular number. Remember that one of those numbers is used twice which means the letter is used twice as well. You should end up with a 4 letter name

baal

When you unlock the Star Door there is a strange circular diagram on the floor with bull symbols scattered throughout.

You also have a maze that reads Family First at the top. Find the letters in the maze that correspond to the bull symbols.

The bold lines from the Star Door unlock match up to the breaks in the maze. You should obtain a word. Use the word that you obtain to unlock the flash drive with the maze symbol on it

Notice the maze symbol on the flash drive.

The password gained by solving the maze/sigil from behind the Star Door puzzle is the unlock for this.

worship

When you unlock the flash drive you will be given a newspaper clipping with several words that have letters underlined in red.

You should have a card in your box with an audio recording that is labeled ‘Play Me.’ In her recording, Marjorie Garcia mentions all of the words or phrases from the newspaper clipping.

Use the order that she mentions each of them to provide the correct order for the underlined letters. You should end up with a word from this. She also mentions at the end of her recording that “where there’s smoke, there’s fire.” This means to use the word that you obtain to unlock the fireplace.

Use the word that you obtain from the previous puzzle with the newspaper clipping and voice recording to unlock this.

Take note of those houses that are marked with a red x and note which suspects those correspond to.

Marjorie has denoted that these are members of the cult.

induction

When accessing the little library, you should have gotten a moon chart that featured values for each moon phase.

You should also have a strange sheet with these same moon symbols. Notice that the shed is locked with a rotary dial lock. Jack provides some insight on how these locks work and even tells you the order.

Use the numbers that correspond to the moon phases marked L, R, and L. Enter them in the correct order to access the shed. Take note of those houses that are marked with a red x and note which suspects those correspond to. Marjorie has denoted that these are members of the cult.

31913

In the unlock to the root cellar, Marjorie leaves a strange message behind that begins, “Oh, and there’s one more thing,”

You should have a document in your box with various images that match up to the things that Marjorie mentions (key, all-seeing eye, etc). You also have a sheet of numbers that, when placed, over the sheet of images should correspond perfectly to the images. Identify each image from Marjorie’s message and find the corresponding number in the order that she mentions them.

Use this to unlock the box beneath the tree. Take note of those houses that are marked with a red x and note which suspects those correspond to.

76193

Jack mentions helping Marjorie Garcia break into the property manager’s office and provides details on how to access that.

By now, you should have unlocked the box beneath the oak tree, the shed, and the fireplace. Each of those unlocks feature two numbers in the upper right corner.

Consult Jack’s notes to see which one to use (upper or lower). Use the numbers in order to unlock the office. This should be a six-digit number.

342911

When you unlock the property manager’s office you are given a grid with a note from Marjorie.

She instructs you to determine the plots that no one owns. Consult the Fairmont Estates Lot Ownership document.

Determine which plots on the map aren’t owned and list them in order. It may be helpful to draw off a recreation of the grid map and mark the plots that are owned. There will be four plots left that have no owner. These are the plots where the four missing girls are buried. Use the plots in alphabetical order to unlock the “Where are the Missing Girls?” card.

The answer to this puzzle comes from the information you’ve gained from the grid map/lot ownership puzzle.

You are looking for four plot coordinates in alphabetical order.

b3d5f2i6

After unlocking the “Where are the missing girls?” card you should have noticed a specific word in all caps. This is the word used to describe the killer.

You also have been told that the killer isn’t a member of the cult you’ve been tracking.

At this point, you should have determined all of the members of the cult and are left with one who is not. Use the first name of the killer and the word from the unlock to solve the box.

Read the interview with Allen Potts.

He tells you “Did you know that the thumb is special because it can help you grasp things? If you try hard enough you can grasp things with the other fingers, but it can be tough. That's why the thumb comes first as far as I'm concerned.” Take the column of letters that relate to the thumb as the first column and then from there go in the natural order of the fingers for the remaining columns.(Thumb, index finger, middle finger, ring finger, pinky)

It might be helpful to re-write the columns of letters in the correct order. Then read through each row of letters in order to find the message. The message starts with “The guards…”

Pay attention to what it says about having two eyes and being able to look at two different things at the same time. “Left eye one letter, Right eye next letter”

Start with the first letter ( L ) and pull out every other letter and see what message that you get

Repeat the process and start with the second letter ( R )and pull out every other letter and see what message that you get. The first message should start with “Lukas get map…”.

“Lukas get map from co and visitor log from lawyer give bother to sonny” “River Bend Blues would be a nice song given our circumstances haha”

Solve the yellow postcard (addressed to Lukas Stark) to see what goes with this.

Once you know what goes with the map, go through the list of states and find the state on the map and pull out the word that goes with that state.

After you have pulled out all the letters, read the message that you get.

“When working your laundry shift get a second pair of socks soak one sock in first chemical and the other soak in bleach then put those on your feet over socks give to Scott when he comes by on book duty”

Calculating the total points to determine the winner of the duel is one of the main objectives of the box

The scorecard should be used to keep a running total of points and updated with each new victim found.

The duel begins with the murders of Daniel Jernigan and Carrie Mendelay.

Consult the Duel Rules that Anubis has provided and calculate the point values earned for each victim. Read the Serpent card and the Red Bishop card to learn how each one kills their victims.

Assign the points to the correct killer and record the points on the Scorecard (you will use this throughout the entire box)

Victim #1 (Daniel Jernigan) is worth 50,000 points for The Serpent and is a rapist.
Victim #2 (Carrie Mendelay) is worth 50,000 points for The Red Bishop and is an arsonist.

This involves determining which witnesses are telling the truth about seeing Daniel Jernigan’s murder

The Detective Notes sheet, detailing Daniel Jernigan’s murder, has accounts of several homeless people who all claim to have pertinent details. Only three are being truthful. You are given information that indicates one of the witnesses is known and has been truthful in the past. Use this as the baseline to determine which of the other two are being truthful.

The statements they make about each other are what you use to determine their honesty. Based on what they say about each other you can figure out which 3 are telling the truth. Hint: Freida is obviously lying since her statements about Ezra and Andrew cannot both be true since Ezra and Andrew make opposite statements. Once you have all three names, use them as the unlock password.

bobdaveezra

When you unlock the VFPD Search Bar, you are given access to a Valley Falls Motor Vehicle Registration report.

Examine the statements of the three witnesses who were telling the truth. Two of these give you specific bits of information to help you determine which vehicle’s registration to examine.

Once you’ve found the vehicle that matches the witness statements, use the license plate of the victim to gain access.Determine which killer is responsible for the murder you uncover as a result and record the correct amount of points on the Scorecard.

scrmom

Note: puzzle uncovered by entering the correct license plate number of victim.Examine Sal’s Exotic Fish and Pets Card and notice how the groups of numbers correspond to the groups of letters in the puzzle.

Start at number 1 and work your way up, matching up those numbers that are highlighted in red and pull the corresponding letters from the card found at the scene of victim #3.

When finished, you should have something that can be read and will provide access to victim #4. Make sure to calculate the correct number of points for victim #3 and add to the scorecard for whichever killer earned them.

fishownerisvictimfour
Solution to unlock victim #4: sal (name of fish owner taken from business card) Victim #3 is worth 100,000 points for The Serpent because the victim was guilty of being a drug dealer and thief. The Serpent also receives 50,000 points that are taken away from The Red Bishop because of the rules Anubis has established for the duel (see rule 2 on Duel Rules).

Note:puzzle accessed only after solving puzzle from Victim #3. There is a grid of numbers and letters at the bottom of this unlock and an Egyptian symbol in the upper left hand corner.

You should have another card that features that same Egyptian symbol. Focus on the word that is in all CAPS.

Spell the word on the grid, making sure to take note of the specific letter and number coordinates where the letters from the capitalized word appear. Use the coordinates to unlock the Thornmire County BAU file. Make sure to calculate the correct number of points for victim #4 and add to the scorecard for whichever killer earned them.

b3d1b2a4c3
Victim #4 is worth 50,000 points for The Red Bishop and the crime he was guilty of was animal endangerment.

Note: puzzle obtained after unlocking victim #4. At the bottom of the description of victim #5, you have a series of images and letters in 4 columns. Take note of what these images are

Look at the quote by William Shakespeare and find the column that features the two images mentioned. Look at the arrows. They are telling you to swap two of the letters in the correct column.

Listen to the Breaking News report to get additional help for the solution to this. The code you get will just be 4 letters,use what you obtain to unlock the flower card. Make sure to calculate the correct number of points for victim #5 and add to the scorecard for whichever killer earned them.

wtvf
Victim #5 is worth 50,000 for The Red Bishop, and the crime he was guilty of was domestic abuse.

Note: obtained by unlocking flower card. Make sure to calculate the correct number of points for Victim #6 and add to the scorecard for whichever killer earned them.

You are given the popular vote totals here as well. Record them on the scorecard. Examine the last paragraph of the reveal. Anubis has provided another bit of necessary info based on the types of victims that have been killed in the duel.

Take a look at the list of crimes on Anubis’ Duel Rules sheet and determine which of the crimes he has listed were not represented amongst the six victims.Use the numbers for each crime not represented on the keypad card. (Note: There should be five digits to this code). You will be given the first names of both The Serpent and The Red Bishop. Take note of these names. You will need one of these later.

67810
Victim #6 is innocent and causes The Serpent to lose 75,000 points.

One of Hypnos’ lieutenants, Chief, provides some information that you must decipher.

You will need to find numeric values for the six blanks.

Focus on the words that are capitalized. (Example: In the first sentence, the two words are Count and Sentences. This tells you to count the total number of sentences which provides the first value of 7). Einstein’s quote about mathematics indicates that some simple math may be required here. Follow the directions in each sentence with abnormal capitalization and determine all six values. Read Chief’s interview to determine what to do with these numbers.

795867

In his interview, Chief talks a lot about a series of dead drops that The Scourge uses to make exchanges of information amongst its members.

He mentions running into a member of The Scourge that talks about the classifieds (see the ad from the Will Street memo) and repeats something that the Scourge member keeps repeating. “The numbers connect. Name what you find.” Take the six numbers you obtained from the classified ad puzzle and connect them in the order them appear.

You should end up with a familiar shape. Use the name of the shape to unlock the file.

star

When you unlock the Dead Drop file, you find a previously unknown dead drop in a specific part of Valley Falls. This dead drop is a group of mailboxes. One of the mailbox numbers is starred. This same star is shown on Igor’s interview.

The statement beside the star says “The twelve Scourge mantras each contain a necessary word.”

There are 12 statements listed below. You will need 12 words obtained from these mantras. Use the number pulled from the Dead Drop unlock to determine which word from each mantra to use. The 12 words will provide a simple set of instructions.Follow those instructions to get the first part of the address where The Scourge meeting is being held.

To find the scourge, count the Team Serpent stars for house number

Examine the words and letters in red. When read together, these provide a simple set of instructions to use that will tell you how to manipulate the alphabet.

Change A to N, B to O, etc - Convert the alphabet accordingly, and use the modified alphabet you create to decode the message at the bottom of the Duel Poster.

The information will provide you with a vital clue about how to read the sheet of hieroglyphics. Once you know how to read the hieroglyphics you can use them to decode the message on The Red Bishop’s poster. This will provide the second half of the address to where The Scourge meeting will be held.

(duel poster) the eye of horus is the beginning of alphabet
Red Bishop Poster hieroglyphics translation: maple street

Use the information you gained from Igor’s interview/The Serpent poster and the information you gained from the Duel Poster/Hieroglyphics decode to unlock the file.

When you find the location of The Scourge meeting, you will discover that you just missed them. However, you will also discover they took a vote of their own to award points.

Use the directions provided to calculate the points each killer earned from The Scourge vote.

Record the point values for each killer from this vote on the Scorecard. Don’t forget to record the bonus points awarded to the winner of The Scourge vote on the Scorecard.

The Red Bishop receives 55 points from the Scourge votes. Serpent receives 40 points. The Red Bishop receives the 350 point bonus.

By now, you should have all values listed on the Scorecard. Calculate the total for each of the killers and determine the winner

The total for each killer should be a six-digit figure.

Enter the point value for the winner to unlock the code. Obtain the loser’s last name.

The winner (The Red Bishop) accumulates 511,591 points at the end of the contest.

You will need the loser’s first and last name to unlock this. The first name was given to you by unlocking the keypad card. The last name was given to you when you entered the winner’s total correctly

Note: We are aware that there is a misspelling in this puzzle for the second word. Apparently, even serial killers make mistakes! This should not affect the outcome of the information you obtain.

The first thing you are told to do in The Pretender’s text message (on the back of the Beginning Brief) is to watch a movie. You have a video tape (Play Me) that has been left for you. Scan the QR code to play the video. You should notice in each segment of the video that a particular color is featured in what you see.

You also have 4 different colored notes (blue, white, red, yellow) by The Pretender. Use the video to obtain the correct order of the notes (by color). There are letters underlined in each of the notes. Now that you have the correct order of the colors (gained from the video) you can read the letters in the order they appear. Example: The color orders from the video are yellow, red, blue, and white so the letters would be I (taken from yellow), W (taken from red), O (taken from blue), U (taken from white), L (taken from yellow because you continue to repeat), and D (taken from red) which gives you the words I WOULD. *See above disclaimer on this second word. Continue this process until you run out of underlined letters on each of the notes- Read the message that results. You will be able to eliminate a suspect

I would never pretend to be a jerk like Sawyer

The Connected Home card says, “For rules to the grid game, ask Connected Home.”

Scan the QR code to have Connected Home give you rules for the grid puzzle. Connected Home will give you four rules that you will use to rule out squares on the grid based on the numbers in each square

The first rule says “One digit is even and one digit is odd.” Disregard any square on the grid that doesn’t fit this rule. Do the same for the other three rules,eliminating squares based on those that don’t fit the rules. You should end up with a single square that meets all 4 rules. Note: The first few prime numbers are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11.

Look for the words between question marks

Read from top to bottom.

Use what you obtain to link one of the suspects to their questionnaire answers on the scantron results.

You should have a document that depicts a skull that is made out of puzzle pieces.

Notice the pattern of dots on the skull’s forehead. The pattern matches up with one of the sets of scantron answers on the questionnaire.

Essentially, this puzzle requires you to figure out which suspect corresponds to which set of answers and rule out the one whose answers match up to the pattern on the skull. This will require you to read every interview on the back of each suspect card and use the classified ad

The suspects will tell you things like which Bradley Raymond novel is their favorite or which story they love the most. These bits of information correspond to the questions listed on the questionnaire. The classified ad also contains some information about one of the suspects. Scan through the classifieds until you find words that are between two question marks. You should end up with a sentence based on those words (reading top to bottom) that helps match up one suspect with their question answers.

Scantron F is the one that matches up to the pattern on the skull. Morgan is the guest who corresponds to F.

In order to complete this word search, you have to first determine what words you are looking for.

Each clue at the bottom of the page should help you determine the correct word to search for (example: past tense of am is the word ‘was’ so ‘was’ is the word you will find.)Once you have determined all the words you are looking for, find them in the word search above.

The Pretender also tells you to “read all to find out a fact about me.”Take all of the words you have gained and read them together as a single sentence. This sentence should be used to interpret something essential about a time when The Pretender was at the lodge (meaning anyone who wasn’t there at that time couldn’t possibly be considered a suspect). Take special note that the word ‘hands’ from the word search results is plural. That means think of both hands, not just one when interpreting The Pretender’s message. Each suspect tells you when they arrived at the lodge. Read the back of each suspect card and pull out all needed information to develop a timeline of when each suspect arrived and eliminate the one whose time of arrival falls outside of when The Pretender says he or she was there

(part 1): was here when clock hands were bound in prayer at Roman V

(part 2): This means that the clock hands were both pointed at the 5 which means The Pretender was present at the lodge at 5:25. The one who arrived after that couldn’t be the killer

(part 3): The number gained from letters where words intersect is ONE.

This should be tied to the word search results because the word ‘search’ is underlined.

To unlock the QR code it says to use the three-digit time (this should be obtained from correctly interpreting the word search result). The additional instruction tells you to add a number at the end made from the letters where words intersect

There should be three places in the word search where the words you have found intersect at a single letter. Use those letters to spell a number and add that number at the end of the sequence. Password to unlock should be four numbers (the three denoting the time mentioned in the word search and the number made from intersecting letters). The unlock will be used with The Machinery of Infinity.

5251 (see word search puzzle for details on how this was obtained)

When you unlock the floppy disk, you will see a schedule for Bradley Raymond’s Inagural Campout

Notice that some letters are highlighted in red. Also, notice the strange times for each event

The times on the schedule match up with times on the clocks on The Machinery of Infinity. The aerial photograph of the lodge can be linked to these two things because it mentions the crime scene game (which is one of the events on the schedule) and the infinity symbol (The Machinery of Infnity). The arrow pattern on the aerial photograph shows the order that the clocks should be read in (the lodge corresponds to the square clock). Starting at the lodge, follow the path of arrows and determine which clock they correspond to. For each clock, find the time on the schedule that matches up and use the red letter that corresponds. Read all of the letters together at the end and eliminate a suspect based on what you’ve learned.

I am not Grant

This one is simply based on correctly solving 5 other puzzles in the box (The Machinery of Infinity/Aerial Photo, Grid Puzzle, Video Tape/Colored Notes, Word Search, and Puzzle Piece Skull Puzzle).

Each of these 5 puzzles should eliminate a suspect. Use the first name of eachsuspect that corresponds to each of the 5 puzzles and obtain the letter from the name that you are told to pull out.

The five letters should spell a name that relates to The Pretender’s true identity. Use this name to unlock the QR code on the card. What you obtain from this unlock will be used in conjunction with the “From the Desk of Bradley Raymond” document you have

pryor

Bradley Raymond gives you quite a bit of information about The Pretender. He also tells you that he is preparing the panic room at the cabin in the event The Pretender shows up

The last paragraph contains the essential information you will use. He tells you that “the key to opening the room is there.”

You should have a limited edition Bradley Raymond chapbook called “The Fourth Key.” Bradley Raymond also mentions “any page, any line, or any word he has ever written.” Notice that the code is written with 3 numbers. These correspond to page, line, and word. The document provides half of the code. The other half should have been obtained from the Hand QR code unlock. Using both pieces of information, determine the full set of numbers that you will use along with “The Fourth Key” story. Find the numbers that correspond to each page, line, word coordinate and use those digits to access the panic room.

Use the information obtained “From the Desk of Bradley Raymond” and the Hand QR unlock. (directions for both are in the previous two pages of this document).

221350

When you encounter Bradley Raymond in the panic room, he tells you about a spy camera that he hid and how to access what’s on it.

Preston Ingalls should have the information you need.

crawlspace

The spy camera should provide a specific word that you will need to unlock this.

At this point, you should also have one suspect left that you have been unable to eliminate

Use the two together, to solve the box.

This involves unlocking the computer which has been locked by a virus. The fax from FLUK3 holds the key to opening the computer. Each letter of the alphabet at the bottom of the fax is represented by a series of 5 characters (* and B)

The letters in the message from FLUK3 are underlined in groups of 5. Some of them are in bold print. The * represents characters in the message that aren’t in bold and the B represents characters in the message that are in bold. Take each underlined group of numbers, determine the pattern of * and B that make up that grouping of letters, and match it up to the appropriate letter below

Example: ABCDE would be represented in the alphabet by ****B because the first four characters aren’t bold and the fifth is. When we look at the alphabet supplied by FLUK3 that would give you the letter B. Apply this approach to each grouping of underlined letters until you have the passcode to bypass the computer virus. Once you have done this, you will know which suspect matches up with which photo.

vfpdsux

Reggie has some important information for you that will help you determine what is going on and tells you to visit his blog. At the bottom of his interview card, he gives you a coded link that will lead to his blog.

Right before he gives you the encoded blog link, he provides a hint when he says, “But I can’t be the only one left. See what I did there?” What this means is to take each letter of the coded link and shift one letter or number to the left.

Example: The letter C would become B, B would become A, and so on. Once you have the correct link to Reggie’s blog, he gives you the key to getting Katy to talk to you. He also provides one of the criteria for how the suspects have been chosen (one thing they all have in common).

Deciphering Katy’s bracelet is the key to getting her to talk to you. The message on Katy’s bracelet at first glance may look like some sort of substitution code. It isn’t.

What’s written there is more of a rebus than a code (think about the way license plate messages are written). Each part of the message provides a certain sound. When combined, these sounds will form a common saying

For instance X would become Ex. Once you have figured out the message and are able to gain information from Katy she gives you information that is used to help eliminate a suspect.

excuseme

Katy says she can confidently eliminate one of the suspects because of a tattoo on his arm that matches a hidden name in verse two of the Red Fang song.

The tabloid article contains the entire song

Take the first letter of each line of the second verse and use the name you gain to eliminate a suspect based on Katy’s interview.

cora

The CSI in this case has information that should help eliminate a suspect. The only problem is she gives you a test that will help you access her briefcase. This puzzle is simple in theory but a bit tougher to execute: simply count the number of triangles.

Obviously, you begin by counting the small triangles. Then, from there, count all the larger triangles inside the shape. The total number you end up with is followed by a zero and then used twice. The combination you should end up with should be in this format: _ _ 0 _ _ 0

Once you have the correct answer you can open the briefcase and gain access to a list of some of the suspect’s tattoos. On the interview sheet, Nick tells you something about the killer’s tattoo that you can use in conjunction with the tattoo sheet you obtain from the briefcase to eliminate a suspect.

the puzzle contains 27 triangles and the briefcase unlock is 270270

This puzzle is used to gain access to Murray Chemical. Fogerty Reynolds thanks Katy for teaching him to write this way. Think about the way the bracelet was decoded and a similar method applies to the message written on the back of the Leads sheet.

Look at each line and try to understand what it means. The translation should fit perfectly into the blanks on the other side of the Leads sheet. Those blanks marked with a red X are the ones you will use to gain access to the chemical company.

Example: Line 1 reads STAND which translates into I understand.

I

Use what you obtain from the red X’s to unlock the chemical company.

You are directed to tell Sharlene at DeGarmo Dental what kind of food you’ve discovered and she will provide some helpful information.

Examine the photo of what you find inside the chemical company and provide the correct answer to get Sharlene to talk.

duck

When you talk to Sharelene at DeGarmo Dental she mentions Creature Features Makeup Studios, the City Council motto, a game, and she provides a series of numbers. You will gain access to Creature Features by using the City Council motto, the Bingo card, and the numbers.

The letters in the City Council motto match up perfectly with the Bingo card numbers (5x5) Find each number that Sharlene gives you on the Bingo card and match it up to the letter in the same position in the City Council logo.

Use what you obtain to unlock the Creature Features card. What you learn not only gives you a lot of information about what’s really been going on but also provides information that eliminates a suspect.

ruse

Before he was killed, Fogerty Reynolds made a final paranoid post on social media. He mentions burying some information in a lock box under a willow tree near the pond inside Easthaven Forest. He tells you Nietzsche contains the key to unlocking the box

Find the card with Nietzsche and use all of the capital letters that are not supposed to be capitalized to unlock the box.

murray

The last entry on the Leads sheet tells you that the key to reading the SD card can be found in the locked box beneath the willow tree. Once you’ve unlocked the box (using the Nietzsche clue) you will find 4 sets of numbers

Each set of numbers contains a pattern of sorts that you must figure out to accurately predict the next number in the series. There are 4 patterns to figure out (one for each line). Determine the next number in each series and use the entire number you obtain (next numbers in each series placed side by side) to open the SD card.

Pattern 1: double the number plus 1, Pattern 2: times 3, times 4, times 5, etc, Pattern 3: plus 2, plus 3, plus 4, etc, Pattern 4: multiply by two and subtract 1. The contents of the SD card give you information about each of the victims including the date of their death. Cross-check the dates of death against the dates that each suspect was incarcerated. You should find that one suspect was incapable of committing the crimes because they were in jail at the time.

953602265

At this point, having completed all the above puzzles, you should have the information needed to unlock this.

Use the killer’s first name and the reference number from the suspect card to unlock.

david48296

In order to solve the box, the directions instruct you to use the first initial of each person implicated in the case in the order they are mentioned by the killer.

When you answer “Who Killed Fogerty Reynolds?” the killer gives you a list of five people who were implicated in the plot. Use the first initial of each name in order.

Unlock the box’s final solution.

A crumpled up note was found at the feet of the victims. Smooth out the note and read what is on the back of the office memo.

The note mentions climbing the corporate ladder. Start at the bottom of the snakes and ladders puzzle and work your way upward, using the order of the colors mentioned in the note (red, green, blue). Read all letters in red first from bottom to top. Read all letters in green second from bottom to top. Read all letters in blue from bottom to top.

Use and interpret what you decode to eliminate a group of people based on their +1 status. Depending on what order you have solved the puzzles this will eliminate up to 15 suspects.

I exist alone but I live for the king’s entertainment.Use this to eliminate everyone who is coming to the party with a +1

This card has several scrambled words at the bottom.

Unscramble them

Put the words in an order that makes sense. Notice there is a chess board on the card,match the message with the larger chess board. Notice that all of the people are said to be part of the king’s court i.e. royalty.Depending on what order you have solved the puzzles this will eliminate up to 8 suspects.

plenty of royalty here but no jester

You should have a chessboard flyer from King’s Court Technology with several people’s photographs. You can use the solution from The Fool message to eliminate these as suspects.

This document is filled with rows of numbers and letters and has a jester’s cap in the background.

The back contains a message that says: “The things I would do for the king are without number.”Remove all numbers from the columns and use only the letters.

If you have trouble telling the Os and zeros apart then then treat them like Os and remove them at the end if the don't make sense. The message will start with “I always ...” Depending on what order you have solved the puzzles this will eliminate up to 16 suspects.

I always make sure the table where I sit I’m fully surrounded by people that I trust. If there are gaps that creates weakness and if I can’t trust you then you are literally dead to me.

Use the seating chart to determine which tables have empty seats. Eliminate those people at tables with empty seats.

In one of the interviews, someone mentions that the waiter speaks in pig latin when drunk.

The interview is transcribed exactly as the waiter spoke it (in pig latin). The rules used by Pig Latin are as follows:

If a word begins with a vowel, just as "yay" to the end. For example, "out" is translated into "outyay".

If it begins with a consonant, then we take all consonants before the first vowel and we put them on the end of the word. For example, "which" is translated into "ichwhay". Use the rules to understand what the waiter is saying.

You should be able to eliminate a suspect with this info.
