Genre: Puzzle/Adventure

Version: 1.0     2/3/00
Me: King Broccoli



You may have noticed that when you move your X-Shaped cursor over 
certain objects, it turns red. To interact with these things, move the 
cursor over the desired object until it turns red. Click and hold the 
left mouse button and the Verb Coin will appear.
There are three animated icons on the Verb Coin that take control of 
three different actions that can be done during the game. There's the 
hand the skull and the parrot.

THE HAND represents the actions "pick up", "push" or "use.

THE SKULL represents "examine"

THE PARROT represents the actions "talk to", "eat", "drink", "taste", 
"blow" and "bite"

The right mouse button brings up the inventory screen with the icons of 
all the objects you have. From this screen you can pick up or put down 
items you need to use and can combine the items as required.
To return to the game screen from the inventory screen click outside of 
the treasure chest.

That should be enough to get you started. Now for the walkthrough!


** NOTE **  Where it's written "Mega-Monkey" it's meant for the Mega-
Monkey mode in the game. If you're playing the easy mode, ignore it. 

You start your adventure as a prisoner in LeChuck's ship. Talk to the 
small pirate and find out that it's Wally. Talk to him some more and he 
gives you some pirate literature, Keep talking to him until starts 
crying and drops his plastic hook. Get the plastic hook and the ramrod 
off the wall. Use the cannon and shoot down the skeleton's boats. After 
you shot down all the boats, open your inventory and combine the plastic 
hook with the ramrod to get a gaff. Look out the window. Use the gaff on 
the debris to get the skeleton arm and cutlass. You can also talk to 
Murray the skull and use the gaff on him if you want. Go back into the 
room, use the cutlass on the cannon restraint rope, and use the cannon. 
In the treasure room get the bag and the ring. Use the ring on the 
porthole and out you go. 


Get the glowing ember that's on the ground. Travel to the swamp, talk to 
Murray the skull and get into the wrecked ship. Get the pin from the 
paper voodoo doll and use the nickels on the gumball machine to get a 
pack of gum. 

Also get the paste from the floor. 

Pull the alligator tongue and talk to the voodoo lady until you she has 
nothing new to say. You find out that Elaine got stolen and that in 
order to lift the curse you'll have to sail to Blood Island, and get a 
huge uncursed diamond ring. She also tells you that you'll need a Map, a 
crew and a ship in order to get there. 
Travel to Puerto Pollo and go to the theater backstage door, get the 
dandruff from the pirate coat and find out that it's actually lice, also 
get the glove from the coat. 

To get the dandruff, look at the pirate coat first. To get the glove you 
have to open the pocket in the pirate coat first. 
Get the magic wand from the table, and use it on the magic hat, get the 
book from the hat and look at the book to learn it's a ventriloquism 
book. Look at the worn travel trunk and look at the Blood Island sticker 
on it. Go right to the stage and talk to Slappy Cromwell especially 
about Blood Island. 
Go out of the theater and go to the barber shop, talk to everyone about 
everything you can. Get the jawbreaker from the floor. 

To get the jawbreaker from Cutthroat Bill hit him twice (hand icon on 
bill) and he'll spit out the jawbreaker. 

Put the lice on the comb that the barber is using when he puts it down, 
this will take care of Captain Rottingham and make place for you. Sit on 
the barber chair and talk to Haggis while he does your hair. Use the 
handle once and get the paperweight that's on the hairstyling book, this 
will make Haggis go away so use the handle of the chair until you're 
high enough to get the scissors, and take it. 
Travel to the mysterious flowers (it's near the lemonade stand, and the 
restaurant in Puerto Pollo). Cut the flower with the scissors and 
Guybrush will learn it's used as a purgative. Now use the scissors with 
the undergrowth and Guybrush will find himself in Snake Crossing. 
Guybrush will get eaten by a huge snake now, it doesn't matter what you 
do. Get all the stuff from inside the snake until there's nothing more 
to take. Use the ipecac flower on the pancake syrup in your inventory to 
get syrup of ipecac. Use the ipecac syrup on the snake's head and he'll 
barf you out. 
Great... now you're stuck in quicksand. Open up your inventory, and use 
the paperweight with the helium balloons, now blow the floating balloon 
(use parrot icon on it) and it should stop right above the branch 
(eventually...), get a thorn from the thorny plant that's right infront 
of you and get a hollow reed from the reeds behind you. Combine the 
thorn and the hollow reed in your inventory and you've just made a world 
class pee-shooter. Use the pea-shooter on the floating balloon, and 
you're out of the quicksand. Guybrush will now find a new place, but we 
will get to it later. 
Travel to Puerto Pollo and enter the restaurant, now you can enter with 
the reservation slip you got from the snake. Touch the quiet patron and 
get the serrated bread knife from his back, also get the club card from 
between the chicken bones. 

To get the club card, get a biscuit from the biscuit barrel, open your 
inventory and eat the biscuit (parrot icon on biscuit), you get maggots. 
Use the maggots on the gross chicken, and you got the club card. Also 
get the pie pan and the biscuit cutter. 

Talk to Captain Blondebeard and learn that he wants something crunchy to 
chew on so give him the jawbreaker, that will loosen his tooth a bit, 
now he wants something chewy, so give him the gum. When he blows a 
bubble, pop it with the pin you got and the gold tooth will fly out of 
it. Take the gold tooth from the floor. 

You can't leave the restaurant with the gold tooth so do this... chew 
some gum (parrot icon), use the gold tooth on the chewed gum, inhale 
some helium from the helium balloon (parrot icon again) and chew the gum 
with the gold tooth. The gum will just fly out of the window so exit the 
restaurant and use the pie pan with the mudpuddle and you got the gold 

Get out of the restaurant and go through the pathway near the mysterious 
door, that's near the theater (you'll should see a red arrow pointing 
up). You'll find yourself in the caber toss place, walk over to the 
grassy knoll and use the serrated bread knife on the sawhorse (the rum 
keg stand thingie...), this will make the rum keg fall and leave a trail 
of rum, use the ember on a stick on the trail of rum and KABOOM. 
Suprisingly the blasted log will fall right on the log pile. 
Go to the barber shop, and talk to Haggis. Accept his offer for a caber 
toss match and of course you'll win it now with the rubber tree log. You 
got one crew member, two more to go. Go to Edward Van Helgen in barber 
shop, and use the glove on him. He'll take you to the caber tossing area 
for a duel. When he lets you choose your weapon close the lid of the 
middle pistol's box and choose the banjo. Ok, now you're banjo dueling 
with Edward. The concept of the duel is very simple, Edward plays a his 
thing and then a special note, he does that a few times, on your turn 
you have to repeat the notes that Edward played in the same order. If 
you get it right, Edward will go crazy with his banjo, so go to the 
pistols, pick one and shoot his banjo. Now Edward is in your crew and 
you need only one more crew member, so go to Cutthroat Bill in the 
barber shop, and show him the gold tooth you got. 
That's it, you now have a crew, all you need now is a map and a ship. 
Travel to the cabana and talk to the cabana boy, show him your club 
card. Before you go in, take three towels and dunk them in the ice 
bucket. Go to the beach and try to walk on it, Guybrush will burn up so 
use the wet towels on the hot sand three times quickly before they burn 
out. Talk to the sunbather, and learn that it's Palido Domingo, Slappy 
Cromwell's travel agent, and that he's got the map to Blood Island 
tattooed on his back. Get his mug and leave through the gate. Travel to 
Puerto Pollo and go to the lemonade stand. Talk to the small pirate and 
learn about his bottomless mug policy. Order some lemonade and Guybrush 
will now understand the meaning of the bottomless mug policy. Use the 
mug in your inventory on the bottomless mug and order some lemonade 
again. Get the pitcher and fill it up with dye from the dye vat near the 
lemonade stand. Travel to the cabana and get a towel, dunk it in the ice 
bucket again and use the wet towel on the cabana boy so he'll go away. 
Take the cooking oil and go to the beach again (you don't have to do the 
towel thing again). Give the bottomless mug to Palido and pour the dye 
into the bottomless mug. Palido will turn over, now use the cooking oil 
on the map, and then get the map (yuck). 
Now all you need is to find Elaine and get a ship. Travel to Danjer Cove 
use the boat. 

You need to fix the hole in the boat first, so go to the caber toss area 
in Puerto Pollo and use the biscuit cutter on the second rubber tree. Go 
back to Danjer Cove, use the paste with the new rubber plug and use the 
sticky rubber plug with the hole in the boat. 

Travel to the pirate ship and board it. The pirates will make you walk 
the plank so cut it when you're on the rowboat again with the serrated 
bread knife. Climb the ship again, do something, and this time you'll be 
tarred and feathered. So now your back on shore and you look like a big 
chicken. Travel to the restaurant and Captain Blondebeard will 
eventually hit you in the head and you'll be taken to the monkey ship. 
When you're in the chicken bucket look at the book in your inventory if 
you hadn't done so by now, and learn that it's a ventriloquism book. Use 
the ventriloquism book on LeChimp. Get the treasure map and get out of 
the ship by opening the porthole behind the chicken bucket. 
Travel to Puerto Pollo and look at the treasure map. Go to the theater 
backstage and walk up the stairs, pull the handle in the control panel 
and you'll find the X. 

At the control panel you'll have to follow the instructions in the 
treasure map to find the X, for example when it says NorthWest you have 
to push the NorthWest button. Follow all the instructions and you should 
find the X on the grave on the stage eventually. 

Use the chicken grease on the cannon balls that are on the old trunk to 
get Slappy off the stage. Walk right to the stage and use the shovel to 
dig up Elaine. 


Sing along with the crew members until they get tired of it. When Haggis 
asks you what kind of a captain you are he's actually letting you decide 
on the difficulty level for the sea battles in this part. If you really 
want to work and have fun tell him you want full control, if you ask for 
their help the sea battle will be MUCH easier. Don't worry, if you 
change your mind later you can always talk to Haggis again and ask him 
for help, or regain full control of the battles. 
The goal of this part is to beat Captain Rottingham in sea battle and 
sword fight, to get back the map to Blood Island. In order to do that 
you'll have to fight other pirates and upgrade your weapons until your 
good enough to fight him. Use your navigation chart and meet other ships 
to fight with. 
In the beginning go for the really easy ships, if you beat them in sea 
battle, you'll board the ship and start sword fighting. The sword 
fighting has the same concept as in Monkey Island 1 only here the 
insults have to rhyme. In almost every fight you gain some new insults 
and the witty answer to the insult. You have to remember the answers to 
the insults and this is how you'll win those fight. Also, sometimes if 
you don't have a treasure on your ship, you might want to lose an insult 
on purpose, just to get a new insult from the other guy. 
Every ship you defeat in the sword fight, you take their treasure. Then 
you have to go back to Puerto Pollo and upgrade your weapons. The more 
fearsome the pirates are, the more treasure they have and the better 
fire power you need to defeat them. After you defeat a ship in sea 
battle, you don't have to defeat them again, you can just board the ship 
and sword fight them. You can also fight the same ship a few times after 
you got their treasure, just for practice, this is very recommended. Now 
here is the insult and witty comeback list.

Insult : You're as repulsive as a monkey in a negligee. 
Comeback : I look THAT much like your fiancee? 

Insult : I have never seen such clumsy swordplay. 
Comeback : You would have, but you were always running away. 

Insult : Every enemy I've met I've annihilated! 
Comeback : With your breath, I'm sure they all suffocated. 

Insult : Killing you would be justifiable homicide! 
Comeback : Then killing you must be justifiable fungicide. 

Insult : En garde! Touche! 
Comeback : Oh, that is so cliche! 

Insult : You're the ugliest monster ever created! 
Comeback : If you don't count all the ones you've dated. 

Insult : I'll skewer you, like a sow at a buffet! 
Comeback : When I'm done with YOU, you'll be a boneless fillet. 

Insult : Would you like to be buried or cremated? 
Comeback : With you around, I'd prefer to be fumigated. 

Insult : When your father first saw you, he must have been mortified. 
Comeback : At least mine can be identified. 

Insult : I'll leave you devastated, mutilated and perforated. 
Comeback : Your odor alone makes me aggravated, agitated and infuriated. 

Insult : Heaven preserve me! You look like something that's died! 
Comeback : The only way you'll be preserved is in formaldehyde. 

Insult : I'll hound you night and day! 
Comeback : Then be a good dog. Sit! Stay! 

Insult : I can't rest 'til you've been exterminated! 
Comeback : Then perhaps you should switch to decaffeinated. 

Insult : Coming face to face with me must leave you petrified! 
Comeback : Is that your face? I though it was your backside. 

Insult : You can't match my witty repartee! 
Comeback : I could if you use some breath spray.

Eventually you will fight Captain Rottingham himself. The Captain 
doesn't use the same insults as the common pirates use, so you have to 
think what simple insult answer is appropriate and make sure it rhymes. 
Or for those of you who are too slack, here's a list of 'em. 

Insult : My attack have left entire islands depopulated! 
Comeback : With your breath, I'm sure they all suffocated. 

Insult : You have the sex appeal of a Shar-Pei. 
Comeback : I look THAT much like your fiancee? 

Insult : When I'm done, your body will be rotted and putrefied! 
Comeback : Then killing you must be justifiable fungicide. 

Insult : Your looks would make pigs nauseated. 
Comeback : If you don't count all the ones you've dated. 

Insult : Your lips look like they belong on the catch of the day. 
Comeback : When I'm done with YOU, you'll be a boneless fillet. 

Insult : I give you a choice. You can be gutted, or decapitated! 
Comeback : With you around, I'd prefer to be fumigated. 

Insult : You're a disgrace to your species, you're so undignified! 
Comeback : At least mine can be identified. 

Insult : I can't tell which of my traits has you the most intimidated. 
Comeback : Your odor alone makes me aggravated, agitated and infuriated. 

Insult : I have never lost a melee! 
Comeback : You would have, but you were always running away. 

Insult : Nothing on this earth can save your sorry hide! 
Comeback : The only way you'll be preserved is in formaldehyde. 

Insult : You'll find I'm dogged and relentless to my prey! 
Comeback : Then be a good dog. Sit! Stay! 

Insult : Your stench would make an outhouse cleaner irritated! 
Comeback : Then perhaps you should switch to decaffeinated. 

Insult : My skills with a sword are highly venerated. 
Comeback : Oh, that is so cliche! 

Insult : Never before have I faced someone so sissified. 
Comeback : Is that your face? I though it was your backside. 

Insult : Nothing can stop me from blowing you away! 
Comeback : I could if you use some breath spray. 

Defeat him and you will find yourself with that horrible map again.

oily rope with the keg of rum. Go up the screen to the giant snow monkey 
and put the keg of rum under the snow monkey's arm. Go down the screen 
and wait for LeChuck to come. When he's about to burn you, use the 
pepper on him and he'll sneeze fire right on the rope that happens to be 
connected to the rum keg, that means that it's gonna be one big blast, 
and the end (hopefully not) of LeChuck and this great adventure.
