    *****************************************************************************
     Walkthrough
     ___________ 
    
      1. House of Strong
     ********************
    When the game begins, you will be in the House of Strong, where Strong Bad,the
    game's main character,resides.In the opening song, you'll also see 3 secondary
    characters. The guy singing is Strong Bad.The yellow thing he kicks into his
    dryer is The Cheat, his abused partner in crime/ lackey. The big, blocky guy
    is Strong Mad, Stong Bad's hulky brother. If you played the tutorial like a 
    good boy, then you should know the grey guy across the hall from Strong Bad's
    room is Strong Sad. If not, I hate you for getting me to explain that he's 
    Strong Bad's depressed and abused (by Strong Bad) brother. Nice one, jerk!
    Anyway, following the cutscene, Strong Bad will be told in an e-mail to beat
    someone called Homestar up. As you can see, Strong Bad hates Homestar Runner,
    the hapless athlete who's constantly a pain in Strong Bad's rear. Strong Bad 
    says to go to the track, but don't do that yet, we have unfinished buisness
    here.
    
    Go downstairs (as seen in the cutscene), then go to the room left of the 
    doorway to the basement. There should be a drawing table, a TV/ video game 
    setup, and a metal detector with a skull on it, leaning on the wall. Grab the
    detector, then use the TV set to start a minigame called Snake Boxer 5. Play
    as much as you want. When you're done, Strong Bad will mention a cheat code in
    his manual for Snake Boxer 5, yet it is gone (see section 5.2). Likewise, the
    the drawing table launches the hilarious Teen Girl Squad minigame. Again, when
    you're done, Strong Bad says he made other funny ideas, but alas, they are    
    gone (5.2). Use your new detector outside to find that there's something in 
    the ground. SB will mark the spot with a tiny flag. OK, now head to the Track.
    
      2. The Track
     **************
    Upon your arrival to the Track, you'll see a guy with pinwheel hat and a star 
    on his shirt. This is Homestar Runner. Talk to him for a bit. Afterwards, 
    he'll talk to Marzipan, his occasional girlfriend. He'll then throw away his
    cell phone. hey, free phone! Call everyone on the phone, exept the one of the
    girl, that's Marzipan. We need to talk to her in person. You'll see a new
    character, the salesman Bubs. Afterwards, head right a little to see yet ano-
    -ther new character, Coach Z, who is in every way Homestar's mentor. Talk to 
    him. Use the detector to find a hidden treasure, then go to Marzipan's house.
    
      3. Marzipan's House
     *********************
    While going left to find Marzipan, note the poorly kept hedge. Then continue 
    to find a party in the making. A little too confident, maybe? Anyways, talk
    to Marzipan for a bit. She'll mention a hedge clipper. Go to Bubs' Stand (do
    not collect $200)  
    
    *Note*: If you talked to Homestar about Snake Boxer 5, so will Marzipan.You'll
    need to go to back to the Track to talk to Coach Z about it before going to
    Bub's Stand (see 5.2).
    
      4. Bubs' Stand and area
     *************************
    Head to Bubs' Stand and talk to him. You'll get Marzipan's shears. Now run to
    the right and don't stop, unless you see a box (observe to find goodies) or a
    hedge (use your new clippers!). You'll get a few bonus locales: Strongbadia,
    the Blubb-O's Whale, The Stick, Photobooth, and Cool Car. Use your detector 
    in Strongbadia. Now, let's crash a pwarty!
    
      5. The Track/ Marzipan's House
     ********************************
    Head to the Track and prank call Marzipan. She'll then leave her house. Fini-
    -sh all the calls and you'll unlock Homsar, the bizzare anomaly in Strong 
    Bad's world. Afterwards, go to Marzipan's House. Grab the balloons for future
    use, as well as an onion from the patch near the float. Then use the shears 
    on the float. Strong Bad will see to it that Homestar never will have a party
    that he isn't invited to, while getting a Homestar mask in the process. Now 
    go to the Track. Homestar humiliation isn't over 'till Strong Bad says it's
    over!!!
    
      6. The Track
     **************
    Head left into the locker rooms once you arrive at the track. Homestar has 
    just had a shower (thank god), so let's make him stink again! Use the onion
    on Homestar, then talk to him about showering. Homestar will then dash into
    the shower. Proceed to steal his clothes (in the middle locker). Ah, poor 
    Homestar. His clothes and the Homestar head automaticly combine to make the
    Homestar costume. Run to Coach Z. In a cutscene, Homestar, in the nude, is 
    forced to go outside, scaring everyone in the process. Note the guy in the 
    red robe, large mustache and crown. That's the King of Town. Oh, boy. Poor
    Homestar. Anyway, use the costume on Strong Bad, then talk to Coach Z. You'll
    start the Race To the End of the Race minigame.
    
    The first obstical in the race is the only one without a set delay, but can
    be the most devastating one as well. Point and run straight ahead. If Strong
    Bad slips, move the pointer in the opposite directon until he regans his bal-
    -ence. Don't worry if it takes you a while, as it's already impossible to get
    first or second. The next obstical is the pogo stick with the Heavy Lourd.
    Strong Bad will be unable to carry the weight at first, but he'll get back on
    his feet and continue the race. Press A when indicated to move on to the 
    final challenge: the 'hurdels'. Press A to jump over the turtle and curdled
    milk, but Strong Bad won't have enough energy to make the actual hurdle. No
    matter how well you do, you'll get dead last. But remember: YOU didn't screw
    up, HOMESTAR did! So, now you've destroyed Homestar's reputation, Strong Bad
    is happy, and all is well, right? Wrong.
    
      7.House of Strong
     *******************
    Great. Now Homestar's a criminal fugitive, a shamed athlete, and a brokenhea-
    -ted lover, AND THEY'RE ALL MESSING UP STRONG BAD'S STYLE. There are 3 Homes-
    -tars moping about in the House of Strong: The fugitive Homestar is taking up
    the TV, the ex-athlete is using the Teen Girl Sqaud table to fanisise about
    winning the Race, and the lost lover is uglying the kitchen. Aw, man! Go up
    and check the e-mails. Other than a few junk e-mails, there's one with a cro-
    -wn next to it. Open it up. Strong Bad will order a sample of Total Load, an
    illeagal (in competitions) drug to enhance performance. Before leaving, grab
    the crate on the table in the kitchen. Let's go get Homestar's record first,
    as you'll also get the useful shovel item. To the KOT's Castle!
    
      8.King of Town's Castle
     *************************
    Outside the actual Castle, there's a hedge and a buried treasure (remember 
    the detector!). Head inside. The place is guarded by the Poopsmith (who lite-
    rally has a crappy job) and Strong Mad (no, he won't help you). Get the shov-
    -el in the upper left corner, then hide behind (by observing) either the 
    privacy screen or the statue until the Poopsmith moves to the left pile of...
    well, you-know-what, then go to the room on the right. Grab the plunger, then
    either continue right to let Strong Mad throw you out, or hide behind the
    weird plant 'till the Poopsmith comes to the nearby pile. Use the plunger on
    the drain to the right of the statue, then hop on it by observing it. Wait
    untill the Poopsmith sees you, then quickly click on the vent above Strong 
    Bad. Strong Mad and Poopsmith will stand below you, dumbfounded at your vani-
    -shing. Continue right through the vent untill you see Homestar's Record.
    Grab it, then Strong Bad promptly escapes with record. You can now visit the
    House of Strong and show the fugitive Homestar your prize. The TV is yours!
    Next, let's get Homestar out of Teen Girl Squad's way!
     
      9.Bubs' Stand/ The Track
     **************************
    Head to Bubs' Stand and talk about Total Load. He'll give it to you. Unfortu-
    -natly, it has a nasty side-affect, so you can't use it on anyone directly,
    but we still need it. Now go to the track. Note a stack of coupons for free
    candy @ Bubs' Stand. Intresting. Grab 'em. Now, let's make the Race easier:
    Pour the Jello-ton (the stuff in the crate in the kitchen) into the pool.
    Then tie the balloons you stole from Marzipan on the Heavy Lourd. Now examine
    the turtle and replace it with the curdled milk, then replace the milk with
    the hurdle. The end result is (from left to right) HURDLE, TURTLE, CURDLE, or
    for short, HTC. Still, it will be impossible to beat Pom Pom's 5 seconds, so
    we'll have to *heh, heh* ELIMINATE HIM. Or disqualify him.
    
    As I said, Total Load is an RTER no-no, so plant some in Pom Pom's locker to
    show he's a supposed cheater. (You can also put some in Strong Mad's, but
    that just activates an easter egg. Funny if have the time, otherwise just put
    it in Pom Pom's.) Knock on Coach Z's office door and talk to him about Total
    Load. He'll then test the honor of his athletes (he even disrespects the tape
    on Homestar's locker!!!) and finds the Total Load. He then kicks Pom Pom out
    of athletics for good. Now, go outside and tamper with the camera. Like the
    KOT, Coach Z needs documentation on everything, so the Race To the End of the
    Race starts anew!
    
    The second round of the RTER is similar to the first, only now it's possible
    to win, and you have a time limit of 22 seconds. No problem. The log no long-
    -er moves, so just go straight. The pogo stick has no delay, and it only tak-
    es a few bounces to get to the hurdles. Strong Bad clears all the hurdles 
    easy, even the last one. You shouldn't take more than 15 seconds to clear it,
    and you- I mean, HOMRSTAR will get a trophy to prove it. If you want, go home
    and show the no longer 'ex' athlete Homestar the trophy (and hit him with it,
    for good measure). 2 down, one more to go! Teen Girl Squad for everyone!!!
    
      10. Bubs' Stand/ Marzipan's House
     ***********************************
    Okay, Dr.Phil, let's get these lovers back together! As Homestar suggests 
    upon asking about Marzipan, she should be given candy. Go to Bubs' Stand to
    get some crappy chocolates. PERFECT! Now leave them  at her door and... oh,
    no! The KOT comes and eats it. Go get another one from Bubs, then head back.
    Note loose dirt near where the KOT appeared. Dig a hole with the shovel. Now,
    if you use the chocolates now, he'll see the hole and sidestep it. Nor will
    he jump into the hole if you throw chocolate down it (however, that will fuf-
    -il a reqirement for the Strong Sad trophy, see 6.2). Shear Mazipan's hedge 
    if you haven't yet, then collect the clippings below it. Put the clippings on
    the hole to trap the KOT when he comes around again. Marzipan then get the
    chocolates (she's organic crazy) and leaves a message on Homestar's cell. If
    you haven't called up to Homsar yet, do so now. Now show the cell phone to
    Homestar. He then leaves the House of Strong for good. Homestar's out of the
    house, Strong Bad is the greatest athlete known to Free Country, USA, and all
    is well...
    
      11. House of Strong
     *********************
    It seems irony isn't finished with Strong Bad yet, as Homestar's victory par-
    -ty is relocated to the House of Strong. All pwarty-goers MUST be violently
    thrown out. Note the following : a CD player between the kitchen and a window
    (as well as the window itself), a bananna peel, guarded absent-mindedly by 
    the KOT, and an armchair called the Luxa-Lounger 5000. Click on the chair to
    block the left wall. Click on the CD player (or Jee Dee Spinner) until a con-
    -ga line forms. Grab the bananna. Now, when the conga line reaches the window,
    use the peel on them. Everyone is thrown out. Congradulaitions! You have won
    the game. 
    
    *Note*: Apart from the trailer at the end, you can actually find a hidden set-
    -up for the next game: At the KOT's Castle, the KOT himself waits outside. I
    won't spoil what he says, but you can bet your boots it's a premonition.
    
    FAQs/ Contact Info
    __________________
    
    Here are some FAQs that I know are circulating. If you have a question of your
    own, e-mail me at mattys4@msn.com- note that spam e-mails cannot reach me, so
    don't bother. EDIT: If you don't get an answer, my junk mailbox deleted it -_-'
    , so please be a persistant bugger!
    
    Q: Can I get into Strong Sad's room?
    
    A: No, aside from the tutorial. Whether it's a setup or an excuse, you can't
    get him to open the door. A rumor once said you could get in through a window.
    That is 100% fake.
    
    Q: Can I get the phone in extended play?
    
    A: Nope. You snooze, you lose, pal.
    
    Q: I put hedges on the KOT's hole, then threw chocolate down it. I put hedges
    back on it, and now I can't get the Strong Sad Trophy!
    
    A: There are 2 other loose dirt areas. Dig holes there and throw in chocolates
    to get the cutscene.
    
    Q: I did it with those ones, too...
    
    A: Niiiiice. Thankfully, you can talk to the KOT in his hole, then use the
    chocolates. Just be strong, as it may take a while.
    
    Q: Why didn't you mention the yellow shirt?
    
    A: Because I suspect it's a glitch. Prove to me that it's not, then I'll list
    it.
    
    Q: What is the yellow shirt? 
    
    A: Some determend players found a hidden shirt in the photobooth. Because it's
    not given a close-up, I call it a glitch. You can find out about it here:
