So...Trilobyte Games, the creators of The 7th Guest and The 11th Hour, is holding a contest in celebration of the fact that they're finally making the third game in the series. In this contest, there is a series of 9 puzzles that they are releasing on an every-other-day schedule. These puzzles are spread out through Trilobyte's FB page, their official website, the FB pages for T7G and 11th Hour, and a few other places (Twitter, Google+, etc).

At the moment, I have puzzles 1, 2, and 7 completed. Puzzles 3 and 6 are almost done, and I'm completely stumped on 4 and 5. Of course, being that this is all about the new game, the puzzles all tie into the two previous games somehow. For example, puzzles 3 and 6 are crosswords that take their clues from T7G and 11th Hour respectively, and the answers to puzzles 1 and 7 were direct quotes from T7G.

I guess what I'm trying to say is: :help:?

Sorry about that. :lol: I knew I was forgetting something.

I've only played 7th guest not the 11th hour, I remember in the nursery it showed a doll covering the mouth of a baby so 6 down is probably doll.
Hamilton used to be a magician and illusionist fits
9 across, 6 guests die, so my guess is "guests" which fits with the s from illusionist
wiki searching turns up julia being a drunk
10 is probably edward as he teams up with Martine Burden instead of his wife
the rest no idea

puzzle 4 I have no idea but looking at other puzzles they put up it is the same kind as puzzles 2 and 8 how did you solve those. I mean I have no idea how this kind of puzzle works.
puzzle 5:
if you've already unscrambled the words what are the letters?

the phrase looks like it starts with :you can't give up be

Ahh! The doll. @_@ I forgot about that scene and thought they were talking about the friggin' wolves. As for the others, you're right (though 'Illusionist' for Hamilton took me a while). 8 is really freakin' obscure to the point where I kinda facepalmed when I realized the answer, as is 4 unless you know the backgrounds of the characters.

The first puzzle and the eighth puzzle actually go together in a way that I found pretty clever (Note- If you can remember it, think of the poem from The 7th Guest). Which, since they're of a similar style, I guess 4 must relate in there as well, but I can't think of the solution.

2 was a bit more complicated. Took me several hours to put the letters into the right sequence, though. As for 5's letters, they are as follows: Y, D, E, A, I, S, O, P, A, Y, E, T, A, L, U, A, C, Y, P, O, R, T, O, T, E, U, R, Z, E, H, T, E, H, L, T, O, N

7 was, by far, the easiest. Almost laughably so.

now you've got me going on this. I managed to track down the 8 clues.

:angel: You're welcome.

so for those other ones is it just straight plug in letters until you unscramble them or is there a trick to it? does it have something to do with how the letters are arranged?

Well you know what they say about how helpful it can be to be insane while working retail, but this is play instead of work

solution[You donít have to be crazy to play here, but it helps!]

You mean 1, 4, and 8? Yeah, it's pretty much plug in the letters and try to guess where they fit. Each one has to do with that poem (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/VideoGame/TheSeventhGuest?from=Main.TheSeventhGuest), though, I've just discovered, which makes it easier. So look for clues there.

*squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee* Thank you. :eek: I never would've figured that one out.

well I need to sit down and do out the crosswords and then I'll have everything from 1-7 solved. the fill in the blanks were easy in that they were just from the poem directly but I'm not sure how this will all come together to give the final clue

When it comes to adventure games you've come to right man. I am willing to match my adventure game resume against anyone.

If you figure out 2 down and 3 across from the first crossword and 5 across from the second one, let me know, because those are the ones I'm still stuck on. Also, if you need help with the others, I'd be more than happy to assist because I have all the answers filled out except those previously mentioned.

5 across the fat man is the name of the guy who did the music for the game, musician fits the number of letters

The answer isn't musician, but you were on the right track and I didn't figure it out until I looked at Sanger's wikipedia page. It's 'composer'. And, I have to admit, I did not even think about that until you said it. I've been watching a Let's Play of The 11th Hour, looking for a portly gentleman whose name might've been the answer to the clue.

I know him because of savage empire and 3 across is faustian, anagram and the type of deal he made. which makes 2 down _I_U_ for stauf's invisible killer which becomes virus as that's how he killed the kids.

alright I give, second crossword 2 down and 8 across. in the meantime I'll work on puzzle 8

which I see is again just from the poem. so I have the solutions for all of them except those two clues.

reediting next post to gather all solutions together

Awesome. Also, the two answers you're missing from 6 are chuck (2 down) and skeleton (8 across).

The last puzzle makes my brain hurt. @_@

1. First letter of the last word of solution to puzzle #1
2. First letter of the 13th word of solution to puzzle #4
3. First letter of the last word of solution to puzzle #2
4. Last letter of the word at "Across #3" in solution to puzzle #3
5. Second letter of the last word of solution to puzzle #5
6. Last letter of the word at "Down #7" in solution to puzzle #6
7. Last 4 letters of the 16th word of the solution to puzzle #7 with 1st vowel traded for 1st vowel in word #6.
8. In the solution to puzzle #8, trade the last letter of word #2 for first letter of word #10 and add letters #4, #5, and #2 of the entire sentence.

I can't tell if my letters are right or not, because so far I have two actual words and one that's just...nonsense

Wow. :doh: Once again. I failed to read things. That's only the first bit of it. The rest is as follows:

Divide the result into 3 words, and twist into the final two word answer which is wicked crazy, like Stauf himself!

putting the letters into the exact sequence gives Tanned love mammal which is three words, now it needs to twist these letters into two words.

Wow, did I totally screw that one up. XD I got one of the words wrong on puzzle 8 and it messed me up for this entire thing. Anyway, the final words are: Malevolent madman. Best of luck, if you're entering the contest. :D

gremcint
09-19-2013, 01:11 AM
so I have the answer, I just put the letters in an anagram solver and honestly I probably would have got one of the words not both. Malevolent Madman I never would have got that first word.

The first word, back when I had an error on puzzle 8, was the one I *did* get. :lol:
