Use your crab on the crate of squid. The crab will frighten the squid and a fountain of ink will go spraying out of him! Then, mop up the ink with your sea sponge to make an inkpad. Use the inkpad on Arthur?s hand to make his hand all inky. Place the library card on his fingers and get the fingerprints.

04-25-2006, 17:41:02
It wont let me pick up the fake crab, he just keeps saying "there's something funny about this crab.."
is there something I should have done first?

This is how you get rid of the rat
Use the fake crab with the cheese. It will become a trap, then use the trap with the rat.

08-17-2006, 17:37:15
where did you get the cheese?
ok got it now
Finished it.good game

Eternal Becky
08-17-2006, 17:46:24
You will get the cheese at "The Blue Crab Cafe" in the kitchen.

But to my knowledge there is no 3rd part planned for Nick Bounty.

Great game! A bit easy tho

08-23-2007, 06:04:41
Hmm... the game isn't working...

08-23-2007, 09:04:00
For me it loads fine :)

08-23-2007, 16:56:06
I think im on a slow computer that's why. :)

05-26-2008, 23:00:53
ughh im stuck at the finger printing when i try to finger print the gut nick says "maybe but not yet" what do i do?

05-26-2008, 23:08:38
Hmmm, you might miss a step, but it's difficult to judge for me which one :hmm:

You can find links to hints and walkthroughs in the first post if necessary :)

06-16-2008, 07:27:03
god! some of those lines he says are REALLY cheesy! but kinda funny.
one thing that didn't make sense was at da end wen da man falls out da window. he screams for a while but da window was like five inches off da ground. how on earth do u die from dat?

08-21-2012, 19:52:14
Really frustrating... I can't get Nick to pick up the fake crab. I've looked at it, commented that it was fake, and still, he won't get it. I even followed the walkthrough to a T in case I missed something. :( Is it a glitch? He just says something like, "I dunno. There's something funny about these crabs." And I look at them and he comments that they're counterfeit. Help!!

EDIT: Weird... Now it's working???
