Game day

This puzzle is incredibly difficult, but I actually finished it. If you get stuck, leave a comment and I'll give you a hint.

Here's something a whole lot easier: Harry the Hamster is an adorable beat-the-clock game.

Doing well on The Impossible Quiz requires a seriously warped sense of humor. I made it to Question #42 before I decided to let it go and get on with my life.

Have a great weekend, everyone.

I collected everything, got the butterfly to appear under the table, and now I am stuck...hint?

I usually am interested in these types of games at first, but get frustrated and give up....

I'm guessing you haven't yet examined the blue wall and found the secret panel. There's still lots to do, and this is where the game gets really hard....

And have you noticed that little smudge on the pot the big plant sits in? You'll have to wet some toilet tissue in the bathroom sink and wipe it off.

Argh! More help needed, Brilliant Brenda!

I am lacking a yellow ball for the see-saw thing in the drawer. I've opened all locked areas and both boxes.

Thanks...it is rather fun to play with, even if I can do it all by myself...

I'll admit that I nearly gave up because it's very hard.

You should have ten balls--and none of them are gold (yellow). What you have to do is find out the value of the gold ball.

Haven't you noticed that the "see-saw thing" is a scale? Weigh the others colors against each other and note their values. (For example, a white ball weighs twice as much as a pink ball. So pink=1 and white=2, and so on.) You're going to have to solve an algebra problem to win the game. That problem lies behind the secret panel. Have you uncovered it yet?

Sorry--the secret panel I'm talking about now is not the one on the blue wall, but the one behind the tulip picture. You need the frog to open that. (Hint: You have a glass and you have water. Use them to wash the mud off the frog.

Kris said...

What mud? What frog? I have the glass of water and have been clicking all over the darn picture of tulips. I also have something that looks like mud in my possession, but when I try to pick that up and put it in the picture, nothing happens....

About to tear out my hair in frustration!!!!!

Fill the glass with water, then click on the glass to magnify it, then drop the mud in the glass. Now pour out the muddy water, look at the glass again, and you'll see the frog. Click on him.

Hmm, I thought I tried that, but maybe I didn't get it in just the right spot...glad you are so willing to guide me through this. :-)

Kris said...

Lordy that was a killer. I almost lost it with the scale thingie...until I realized that I had put a pink, green, and gray ball in place like the diagram showed and left them there. At first, I thought I was missing balls. Duh!

Thanks for the help. It was fun, even if I pulled my hair out a couple of times.

But it was a good game, wasn't it?
