Find your way out from Mendeleyev's office. Note that the year is 1882 and you must think like the scientists back then. Have fun and good luck!

So far I have pestle, 8 out of 9 plates, salt peter, tongs (used), coal (used), recipe (using) and a match

I just don't get the "checkerboard" clue

@ slerk
I'm assuming you got the recipe from the paper - but how?
I have 8/9, pestle, salpetre, lit match, paper, coal (cooled)

I am right with you slerk. I did use the pestle though... you have all you need to use it as well.

where is the checkerboard clue though?

The checkerboard clue is in the music sheet by the violin.

Any luck on the codes?

I have gunpowder! (and fire, yet I can't blow up the door!) The clue for the 8 number code is found in the newspaper

EDIT: I now have a ball which I assume is a "bullet" for a gun

EDIT: Now I'm googling periodic tables. Yuck

EDIT: That paid off. Got the letter code.

EDIT: KABOOM and out!

For number code: think roman numerals

I'm so lost on the checkerboard!!

Scissors: The note sheet is separated into 4 sections. Each section has 1/8 notes, those are the squares you click on the checkerboard. I think it was 4th, 2nd, 3rd, 3rd and 4th - top row to bottom row.

@Corttana, you need the last plate to move any further. You will also need to find a blank piece of paper.

Did you solve the number code?

I can't seem to get anything done here.
I have solved both codes
I have salpetre, paper, lit match, pestle, coal (cool), ball, sulphur, gun
I have read a few things on what I'm supposed to do but it isn't working.
I can't put paper into fire to get recipe, can't get the burner to work, can't use the match
I am soooooooooooooooo Stuck.....

:laughSMILE: POP

I don't know how but it worked now
Finally out

my checkerboard too small - just 4 by 4 .. read clue/hint. that requires 5 by 5. no quaver on mine.
have recipe and items for it, did 8 space code, have 9 of 9 and noted missing items on it, have pestle, .. Evidently web search needed. Hate that. Think I'll pass on this one after getting this far.

I seem to be missing something.

I have all ingredients but I can not use them :frustrated:

Edit: HAHA, never underestimate the power of posting!

Turned out I had to cool down the coil first ^^
