    General important stuff
    First of all, this game is really great and shouldn't be solved only with
    this walkthrough. There are a lot of other things to do and explore. The
    walkthrough just shows the minimal things you have to do in order to finish
    the game and this could ruin a lot of the fun. When you get to a new place
    explore everything you can, you'll need it to know the names of the places
    so you know where to go to with the walkthrough. When it's written to talk
    to someone, really talk to the character and get as much information as you
    possibly can. This is also very important because sometimes certain things
    the characters say, trigger Guybrush to do certain things later and not to
    mention the valuable information you get out from them. 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. Contact me: zig@a-vip.com
    Part 1: The Demise of the Zombie Pirate LeChuck
    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.
    Part 2: The Curse Gets Worse
    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.
    Mega-Monkey: 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.
    Mega-Monkey: 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
    Go out of the theater and go to the barber shop, talk to everyone about
    everything you can. Get the jawbreaker from the floor.
    Mega-Monkey: 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
    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.
    Mega-Monkey: 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.
    Mega-Monkey: 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.
    Mega-Monkey: 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.
    Mega-Monkey: 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
    Part 3: Three Sheets to the Wind
    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.
    You gain levels and fight stronger pirates, until you 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. Good Luck.
    Part 4: The Bartender, the Thieves, his Aunt, and her Lover
     Talk to Haggis about everything, especially the lotion. Get the bottle from
    the shore and bite the cork to open it (use the parrot icon on the bottle).
    Travel to the cemetery, walk down and get the mallet and chisel. Get some
    smelly dog hair and the dog treats, give the old dog some dog treats so
    he'll bite you.
    Mega-Monkey: There are no dog treats in this mode, so give the old dog the
    maggoty biscuit so he'll bite you.
    Travel to the hotel and enter the bar. Talk to Madame Xima, ask for fortune
    telling and get the five "death" tarot cards also Get the cushion from one
    of the bar's stools, get the recipe book, and get the brochures.
    Mega-Monkey: Madame Xima won't give you all the five "death" cards at once,
    you have to ask her to tell you your fortune five times so you'll have all
    the five.

    mallet on the tree. Travel to the windmill and get the pepper from right

    hair to the bartender, he'll wake up and give you a hangover remedy. Talk to

    Mega-Monkey: Before you order the grog, order a big fruity drink with an
    umbrella in it to get an umbrella.

    on the Head-B-Clear bottle to open it. Get the jar from the counter. Use the

    the warning in the recipe book?).

    portrait. Get the book from the skeleton and look at it. Go down out of the
    room and downstairs to the bar.

    portrait in your inventory on the closet door (from the outside). Use the
    scissors with the portrait, enter the closet room and look through the
    porthole. This will make the bartender believe you're a Goodsoup relative.
    Talk to the bartender about why you haven't been buried with his aunt. Tell
    him your a member of his family, and finally talk about the Goodsoup family
