Mind Over Manor
Sat, 06/16/2018 - 12:00am by anonymous
It's a stormy night in Hampshire, England. The year is 1926. You're a detective who's been invited to a dinner party at the mysterious Tudor Manor. You take detailed notes of the grounds in your old notebook. You can never be too careful.
You are last to arrive and Ms. Scarlet, your hostess, introduces you to 5 mysterious guests who have been wandering the Manor, waiting for their meal. At last, dinner is served, one course after another. It is almost time for dessert when--EGADS! Ms. Scarlet takes a sip of her drink and falls dead asleep, snoring loudly in her dish. You know the signs of a sleeping serum when you see them. What's worse: Ms. Scarlet's priceless Ruby Candlestick is missing!
The crook has clearly hoped to distract you while they make their getaway, but the storm outside means now escape from the Manor is impossible! The culprit must still be here in this very room...

Wow that was hard! What a neat badge!!
Great badge that I really enjoyed!
can't figure out the last code
as in like what I should look up in the catolog
for me, it was a lot further into the results than I expected. maybe I didn't search the exact combination that was intended, though!
Was it at least on the first page of results?
did you use write four, fourth, 4, 4th, 4th course, course 4, course four, fourth course, or what?
I have tried every combination of four, trout, and library with no help. I must be missing something!
its not library, its west hall
But that isn't the person who said they left during the 4th course?
Just got it. Try the first two with the Study instead.
You're a lifesaver.
no it is study.
For the room: where is the piano?
For the number: I used the number (4). Just tried it again spelled out (four) and the same item was in search results, so either will work.
I can't find clue 3
I'm stuck on the third clue! I think I know who was closest but I can't find anything when I search the catalog for that part of the house.
Search for that person's name in the catalog
Name didn't work for me.
It worked when I looked up the person and the location together! Thank you!
what is the place???
This was so helpful. Thank you!
You need the name and the place
help with 3rd one
Did you figure out who was closest? Once you do you have to search their name and the room they were in together.
and the last one
I, too, am having trouble locating the final code. I went 30 results deep using both the numeral and the spelled-out word and haven't come up with anything.
Update: made it to 75(!) using the numeral and still nothing. I suppose I could have the wrong combination, but I've checked it several times.
I'm giving up after getting into the 100s.
you need 3 words: number - course - room. When you do this, you get 2 hits. Works for both numeral and spelled-out word.
I really hope I can figure this out, because up until that very last clue search this is the best badge I've ever done for the Summer Game and I want more like it! I really appreciate all of the work that went into it.
My wife figured it out! Hallelujah! The final clue seems to be written incorrectly- we got it by looking for the room the suspect snuck off to *DURING*, not before, dinner. Good luck, everybody!
the last clue is written wrong; it's where the culprit went during dinner, not before. I don't think it specifies where, so you just have to try each room until you get it. once you get the right combo the book w/ the code is right at the top
It makes a lot of sense if you think about it- where would you go to do the thing they said they did during the fish course? I hope they fix the clue, because it fits so neatly with everything else.
Great badge! I love logic puzzles.
I figured out what went wrong! I switched some things on the map, but never updated the suspect quotes! It should make more sense now. Hats off to those of you who powered through, it wasn't meant to be THAT hard!
I cant find the first one, I know it's white and mustard, but I've tried all the combinations, I just can't find it! Do you know what to search? Thanks, if you can tell me!
Okay, but isn't it the first 2? Do I search them, or just the first?
