Don't touch the
beer in the refrigerator
or its game over

So far I

got a key(used), 2 coins, a battery, and a hammer. Also put a code into the key pad that seemed to work, but I don't know what it did.

10-08-2008, 05:20:31
So far, I have a key and a hammer. I found a box where a code goes, but not sure what the code is. I think it's the dates on the wine, but not sure. Oh, and I unplugged the computer. Still stuck, though.

Ok, got the code. It's 1341965 (the date on the sixth bottle of wine.

10-08-2008, 05:25:50
Ok.. I'm in.. and Purp.. I'm where you're at.
oh and i've found a battery, and i screwdriver??

10-08-2008, 05:26:36
Where'd you find the battery and screwdriver?? :?: Enquiering minds want to know.

Never mind. Got both of them.

Ok, I've gone further. I got the screwdriver, undid the back to the tv set, got a light, undid the clock with the key, got the battery, hooked the battery to the light, and a line opened near the code box, and I have another key....Hmmmm....:hmm:

10-08-2008, 05:27:01
I am at the same place as u Jack

Purp-get the battery from the clock and the screwdriver is in the fridge

Opende the tv and got something and now short circuited the wires :D

ohh so its an bulb :D

10-08-2008, 05:29:45
Battery behind clock (use key to unlock). Screwdriver in fridge (somewhere in shelves, not door).
I've unscrewed back of TV and gotten a bulb??

10-08-2008, 05:32:49
Connected the battery with bulb now started the bulb and it gives out very bright light but don't know where to use it

10-08-2008, 05:33:39
I edited my post. You all should have a look at it. Usually, I'm the one stuck and asking for help, not giving it.

Ok, I just turned out the lights with the screwdriver and the electrical box, and am now using the light from the tv with the battery

More sage advice. Jack said don't touch the beer. Purp says don't hit the hammer against the pipes. "You aren't wearing your floaties and you have drowned. Try Again?

10-08-2008, 05:38:25
Is there more than one battery?

I also have two sticks(?) whatever they are, kinda look like french fries :S

10-08-2008, 05:43:54
Ok.. i'm stuck ... stupid work got in the way.

I have lit light bulb but that's it... nothing appears... heeelllpppp!!

10-08-2008, 05:44:29
Purp I don't get what you mean by the line opening near code box :S

10-08-2008, 05:46:17
I think they are wax for the surfboard, Rhiannann. I'm not sure, though.

How far are you, Rhiannann? Did you find the wine bottle with the sticker on it, and put that code in the little box on the far wall?

10-08-2008, 05:48:42
I have two stick things, hammer, screwdriver, and my light is working. I made some electricity come out of the stuff in top right corner. Haven't used sticks or hammer.

Edit: Yea I put the code in the box. Nothing happened :S

10-08-2008, 05:50:34
Ok, you need to enter the code from the wine bottle with the sticker on it into the code box on the far wall, just a little to the left and down from the electrical box.

10-08-2008, 05:52:00
I got light out but died because of water

I put the coins on top of the water heater using the bulb for lighting the room :D

yay got one more key and inflated the yellow things it looks like a lifesaver not coins :P

10-08-2008, 05:53:22
Ok.. I can't get the lights to go out. I've disconnected the wire so that there's sparks but that's where I'm at.

10-08-2008, 05:55:54
I think your coins might be my "sticks" :haha:

Stuck where you are Scambo.

10-08-2008, 05:56:49
yay i am out very nice game :panda2:

10-08-2008, 05:57:06
ok.. i restarted. This time I see the line and got a second key. Lets see if I can turn out the lights

10-08-2008, 05:57:52
Scambo, you need to take the screwdriver and wiggle it on the electrical box, too

Good for you, Pratik. How'd you do that? Also, I can't get my coins on top of the water heater, either. How'd you do that?

10-08-2008, 05:59:50

are u out

10-08-2008, 06:00:30
ok.. now i've got two blown up yellow things and stuck now.

Yay... i'm done.... phew.. was driving me crazy. I had to restart though

10-08-2008, 06:01:17
Drag them on the ground and then use the second key to get out

after breaking the pipe with hammer;)

HAve u first placed them on the water heater and then after they inflate u can drag them on the ground

10-08-2008, 06:01:36
Ok, thanks, Pratik. Gooberknuckles, it isn't working. I can't get them on the ground and open...Grr...

10-08-2008, 06:03:35
I restarted three times. There is no "line" by the code box.

10-08-2008, 06:06:01
@ Rhiannann... after you get the light bulb out of the back of the tv it just turned up.Actually i think i connected the battery and then it showed... oh i'm not sure now.

10-08-2008, 06:07:22
Yea I have done all that. I even zoomed in.

10-08-2008, 06:09:35
For me it showed up after i putted the yellow thing on the water heater

10-08-2008, 06:12:13
Ok I managed to put one yellow thing on the heater, the other won't go.

Still confused about using screwdriver on electrical box. Where exactly? It doesn't seem to do anything.\

Ok I have to give up. The game just doesn't work.

10-08-2008, 14:08:31
yay....i am out..:leb: but yeah this game is buggy nd quite pixel hunting...which is really frustrating :S

I found that you shouldn't touch the electrical wire w/ your hand. Need to touch it w/ the screwdriver. But before u do that, need to get the other key from the wall next to the code box by putting the key into the clock before you take out the battery.

where did you find coins

10-11-2008, 15:50:57
Do this in order or it won’t work.

Walkthrough originally posted by Mayhem_king on Dagohbah

1. There is a brown box on the left of the basement. Click on box. There is a hammer on the far left of the box, take it. The date on the black wine bottle with the large sticker is the code for the code box. Enter the date as the code in the code box. This must be done before you touch the clock.

2. There is a key under the brown box that the TV sits on. Get it. Click on the clock, put the key in the bottom right corner of the clock, then click on the far right side of the clock. At the back of the clock click on the black square until you see the battery. Take battery. If you do this without the key (it is possible) you won’t be able to finish.

3. Click on the fridge. Open the fridge. There are red cans at the top and one of them has a bit of a space. There is a screwdriver there. Really, there is.

4. Unplug the TV. Click on the back of the TV. Use the screwdriver to open the TV by click on the screws with the screwdriver, once inside open the next thingy with the screwdriver. Take the light bulb. Combine battery with bulb.

5. There should be a lighter grey line on the wall to left of the code box. Click it. It should open and reveal a key. Take it.

6. Pick up yellow thingers from behind the banana shaped surf board. Put them on the water tank on the left of the room. They are water wings that are not inflated. If you leave them alone, they will inflate.

7. Above the TV is the circuit breaker/fuse box. Drag the screwdriver to the top part of grey box. It should make sparks. Keep doing this until the room goes black. Then click on the little switch on the light bulb. This should illuminate the room.

8. Once the yellow things have inflated, drag them to the floor in the middle. This will mean you are wearing them.

9. Use the hammer on the water tank pipe. There is a tiny yellow part under it that you can break with the hammer. You will have to click several times. Water should start gushing into the room.

10. You will float to the window, there you use the second key (the one you didn’t use on the clock) and unlock the window. YOU ARE FREE!

10-12-2008, 15:30:08

10-13-2008, 17:48:32
due to my extremely inconvenient curiosity..
i touched the beer to see wat happens despite the warnings.
&& it restarted !!

10-14-2008, 22:04:39
I tried everything (or so I thought) but could not see that darn line with the key....until I read Elektra's walkthrough - now I'm out!

Bless you Elektra! :pop:
