7th Guest Walkthrough

7th Guest Solutions to various problems encountered.

Telescope in the Library:

OBJECTIVE: Spell out the sentence by clicking on the letters. After selecting a letter the next one selected MUST be connected to the last via a canal on the map of Mars. Click on the Letters starting with the T at the bottom to spell:

THERE IS NO POSSIBLE WAY Spiders on the Star:

OBJECTIVE: Cover all the purple circles around the edge of the star with spiders. NOTE: The puzzle is won when all but one circles have been covered with a spider. The spiders will move alone one of the lines from the starting circle to the ending circle.

SOLUTION: OR Click any purple circle to start. Click on either purple circle connected via the lines to the one from step 1 to have the spider move to there. Pick a purple circle so that after the spider moves he will be on the circle from step #1 above. Click on the circle from step #1 above to have the spider move to it. Pick a purple circle so that after the spider moves he will be on the circle from step #3 above. Click on the circle from step #3 above to have the spider move to it. Continue this way around the star, picking a spot so that the spider can move to the place you CREATED the last spider on. Skulls and Headstones in my cake:

OBJECTIVE: All 6 guest's need to receive an equal share of cake. The problem is that the pieces given to each guest must touch on a side. The final shape of the pieces for each guest doesn't matter. The S's represent sections with a SKULL, the H's sections with a Headstone. The section without an H or S are just icing. Solution: Click on all 5 pieces with the number 1. After they fly from the cake click on all 2's, then 3's, 4's, 5's and finally 6's. All 6 guests received 5 pieces total consisting of 2 skulls, 2 headstones and 1 icing. Eight queens that do NOT get along:

OBJECTIVE: Position eight queens on the board so that no queen can capture another queen. NOTE: Queens can move in any direction including diagonals for as many squares as they want. Solution: Blood flow:

OBJECTIVE: Open/Close gates so that the blood can flow from the heart to the end. NOTE: Click the heart to get the blood flowing when you think you have it. The easiest strategy I found was to start from the end. Click the gates and you will notice that the end with the little ball is fixed. Click the gates open and closed so that there is a continuous path for the blood to follow. By staring at the end this path is obvious.

OBJECTIVE: Find your way through the maze to the basement. Another puzzle awaits you there. NOTE: The room with the Bishop puzzle has a maze on a carpet. This is also the map to the basement. The maze is recreated below. The lengths of sections in the actual maze seem different than the map indicates even though the overall relationship of openings etc. seems correct. Can's in the pantry:

OBJECTIVE: Rearrange the can's so that they make a complete sentence. The only VOWEL is Y. Here is a hint from the game: Bashful nomad, craftily, agilely, meet secretly near my underground vault. And here is the final solution: Shy gypsy slyly spryly tryst by my crypt Letter Flowers on my bedspread:

OBJECTIVE: Make a sentence from the letters on the bedspread. Notes: From the last selected letter the next letters that can be used are either 5, 3, 3 or 5 letters away. NOTE: The STARS are used as spaces. Here is the flow for the answer: KEY: Spaces to move Letter Grating Ain't it?

OBJECTIVE: Move the grate parts around so that the circle cut in two of them is over the opening. The bottom one protects you from the spikes. I've numbered the six position's of the grates like this: 1 2 3 4 5 6 Click on these position's to arrange the grates so that you can get through: 5 (You should now have a completed circle) Coins on the Briefcase:

OBJECTIVE: Turn over ALL coins. Once a coin is turned over only the coins along the column above/below or on the row to the right/left of it can be flipped. There are two puzzles in the sequence. Solution: Bishop's needing a change: OBJECTIVE: Swap the bishop's out, white to black. Notes: You DO not have to move White/Black/White/Black etc. You can start with Black or White AND can move multiple Black or White Bishop's in a row.

SOLUTION: By numbering the board as show follow the moves in the numerical order under the #'s columns.(IE: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 etc) Crypt in the basement: OBJECTIVE: Get the lid's all closed before the dead escape. There are 9 coffins arranged like this: Notice that clicking 2,4,6 or 8 has no effect on 5. One more thing: Several times while trying to click on #9 I managed to instead click while the right beckoning hand was displayed. This exits the puzzle early. Be sure you have the EYE before clicking in a coffin. Although I am sure there is a nice algorithm for this solution I still have not found it. I have managed to solve it by brute force only. By resetting the puzzle I usually find a fairly easy one to solve within a few minutes. Continue to 7th Guest Walkthrough Part 2.
