      Hi Stuck, have u figured which squares to push on the coffee table yet? Vie looked at the red book and tried and tried to see which ducks to push.

    2. Mach

      Hi Stuck. How did you figure out the light code next to the lion statue ? I tried every orders but nothing works.

      1. stuck

        Theres a switch under the bronze hand statue and the bust figure. Somewhere underneath between those two. Flip it, itll change the colors of the lines where the glasses are. Seven glasses seven buttons on the color code. Ull get it once u flip the switch.

        1. Mach

          Thanks Stuck for your help. I was really silly, I didn’t see there were other colors than red. How do you get the mirror ?

          1. stuck

            Havent got it yet. Still trying to figure out the code on the coffee table.

  5. Mach

    I’ve finally got to the second room.But, I’ve put the yellow plate on the picture behind the pillars and I figure it has to do with the 325 code in the picture of first room. I put the 325 in the lock by the glass doors and it doesnt work. Am I missing something before I do that. Thxs…

    1. Alessia

      How can I go in the second room? Ive tried lots of time with numbers on the bronze statue but i can’t open it.. I can’t do anything now.. Please give me some hints..

  7. Empty

    Hi Stuck or Mach, It finally worked. Have either of u got to second room that u can tell me how to get the blue boat to surface?? I’ve got the other two. Thxs…

    1. stuck

      Still trying to figure out the pencil/valve contraption. Without telling me the answer, is it just that im not tapping the right spot?

  8. Alessia

    I dont’ know how to do with the pencil and the valve together.. I can’t open any door.. Uff I can’t go on.. Need help..

  9. Andy

    Can anyone tell me where to get the pencil? Thanks

    1. Alessia

      You can find pencil under the little table under the picture on the left corner!

  10. Alessia

    Finally I escape!!

  11. Mach

    I’m totally stuck. Now I’ve got only three plates and a pencil/handle. Is it anything to do with the light in the floor? How can I get the second room ?

  12. Andy

    Thanks Alessia, now can I have some hint as to how to get to the 2nd room?

  13. stuck

    Come onnnnn. Please, just a hint? Stuck with valve/pencil and plates in the first room.

  14. Andy

    Stuck, I figured it out. You see the bronze statute is shaped like a hand. You see that the code for it obviously have to do with the shelf with 9 compartments. You see pics of sports, some played with feet, …
    After you have opened the statute you will get a key and you will know where to put the valve.
    Hope this helps.

    1. stuck

      Aaaaah. Thank you so much Andy. I was thinking the hand was pointing at the black screen. Thanks again.

  15. rekaerB

  16. Andy

  17. L

    AHHHHHHH! I can’t picture of these shows with the birds is being transparent I can’t figure out where I’m supposed to put them or how many I’m supposed to put. I can’t picture transparent boxes with birds and I’m I don’t see it I don’t know how many birds where to put the birds I can’t figure out the bronze statue something about feet and how many feet and is it all feet or hands and feet I can’t get it. I may go crazy now please help me

  18. julie

    Okay seriously – how did you get the boats to float?! I’m in the second room, but all I have is the glasses with red lenses… What now?

  19. julie

    Oh and I have the three boards with holes, I have put them over the letters… But no Idea what to do.

    1. Empty

      Use the yellow plate on picture behind the pillars,u should see s m l. In first room u use the glasses on picture with 325 and they are in small,medium,large circles. In second room there are glass doors to right is like safe it should open once u put in that code.

  20. Empty

    Julie, I think I kinda remember the ships in tanks.
    Have u got the glass doors open yet? (behind pillars to the right). the code is 352. Once open u see 2 boxes,open tap one with diamond. Turn right and the right one should have floated to top. Take key go back to boxes open left one,see stopcock with spade,tap it- go back to tanks and mddle one should be at top,take key,open right box,see stopcock with club go right the last boat is at bottom. Open cupboard below tap chess piece so star symbol matches the pipe. (NOTE: if u opened any of the chess pieces in cupbord behind pillars u have to go back and play with it and boat should end at top).. It took me hours to get that to work. LOL…

  21. julie

    Okay thanks!! I don’t know that I would’ve gotten that without help!

    Finally figured out the 3 digit code for the hand statue. You just look at all the pictures that have a ball in them. There are more than 3, so it’s hard to know which numbers and which orders, but the paper in the red book shows you the first three numbers and where to start counting from.

    I can´t find the third coin, it´s not where you say and I know it should be there. There´s nothing at the suitcase but the book with the animals and the code.
    Could it be that you only get the third coin if you play the game in a “right” order?
