    Hiya. This is my third or so FAQ, the first one made for GameFAQs. The others
    weren't actually FAQs, so they don't matter. Anyway, that's done with. Now I'm
    trying my hand at something that might be useful, depending on who you ask.
    This is a pretty old game, so updates are few and far between. Yep. It's been
    almost a year since the last one. Sorry. Hopefully that won't happen again.
    But eh. I'm probably gonna be done after this one, save a few more updates to
    correct typos and such. Yay for older games.
    The Secret of Monkey Island was released way back in the days of old (a.k.a.
    1990) by LucasArts Entertainment Company. It's the beginning of a series of
    humorous adventure games that has spawned numerous fan sites, hopes for a
    movie, and one of the strangest newsgroups that I've stumbled across:
    alt.games.lucas-arts.monkey-island (AGLAMI). Stop on by if you some free
    time. You probably won't find me there, though. I don't have time to sit
    around and wait for 15,000 new topics to load.

    Somewhere in the Caribbean...
    A not-exactly-strapping young man arrived on Melee Island, determined to be a
    mighty pirate. The lookout was useless, but the not-exactly-strapping young 
    man, Guybrush Threepwood, found three rowdy pirate leaders, who assigned three
    tasks to the wannabe swashbuckler. Here, our story begins. Actually, it began 
    right after "Somewhere in the Caribbean..."
    Guybrush Threepwood
    Guybrush is the hero of the Monkey Island series. His main goal in life is to 
    be a mighty pirate, but of course he also wants to get rich, marry Elaine 
    Marley (the governor of Mle Island), and be captain of his own ship. Should 
    be easy, right? I always find it so. But Guybrush is kinda wimpy, and he gets 
    nervous around the ladies. Mrrfl.
    Elaine Marley
    Governor of Melee Island, owner of some rather violent poodles, and Guybrush 
    Threepwood's one true love, Elaine is the 'damsel in distress', or would be 
    were she not perfectly capable of taking care of herself. Her plans are usually 
    ruined by Guybrush, but she loves him nonetheless. I can't see why... He's not 
    a big talker, he's lacking in looks, and he's a pansy. His personality isn't 
    great, and he probably can't even make a decent omelet. And I'm betting he's 
    bad with children. But hey, we can't all have great taste in men...
    Ghost Pirate LeChuck
    He's dead, he's into voodoo, and he's allergic to root beer. He also happens
    to be Guybrush's archnemesis. He really digs Elaine, but rather than trying to 
    make her fall for him, he takes the classic villain approach and just kidnaps

    As in most of the LucasArts adventure games of the early '90s, the controls
    in this game are fairly simple. On the bottom of your screen, there's a large
    black area. On the left side, you can see the actions you can use. A diagram
    of this is shown above.
    You use these commands by moving the cursor over the command you want to use
    and clicking it, then moving the cursor over the object, person, or thing you
    want to use the command on and clicking on it. You can see what command or
    item is in use, and what your cursor is over, by checking the command line
    above the items and commands. 
    Of course, those aren't the only commands. They're just the basics. There are
    others. These are used just by pressing the key or button necessary to use
    them. Quite simple. They are as follows:
    On items or people, this will cause Guybrush to use the 'Look at' command. On 
    doors, it will be 'Open' or 'Close,' depending on the  current state of the 
    door. On handles, it will be 'Push' or 'Pull.'
    Hitting F1 on your keyboard will bring up the menu. From here, you can save or 
    load your game or quit. To get out of here, just press the 'Play' button.
    Hitting the spacebar while playing will pause your game. Hit it again to 
    unpause it.
    The escape key will skip over cutscenes and credits so you don't have to watch 
    them every time you want to play the game.
                                   Saving and Loading
    To save your game, go into the menu (press F1) and select Save. Choose which
    drive you want to save your game on by clicking on the button on the top
    right, then click on any of the empty slots on the left side and type in a
    file name. Press the OK button to save the game, or the Cancel to go back to
    the menu without saving. If you click on a file that you have already used to
    save a game, the file will be replaced. After pressing OK, the menu will
    To load a game, open the menu and choose the load option by pressing the
    button labelled Load. Click on whichever file you want to load by clicking on
    it or pressing enter when the cursor is over it. The game will be loaded and
    the menu closed. Again, you can select which drive you want to load from, or
    go back to the menu by pressing cancel.

                                Part 1: The Three Trials
                                    Getting Started
    Hello. Meet Guybrush. He introduces himself to the blind lookout atop the 
    mountain. They'll talk for a bit. The lookout tells Guybrush to go talk to the 
    pirate leaders in the Scumm Bar. When they finish, you can go two different 
    If you want to explore a little bit, head off to the right side of the screen
    to the island overview. Most of the locations are shown here in colored
    spots, and those that aren't you'll either run into later or you can just
    move your mouse around until you see something. There's nothing you can do
    here now, so you might as well head back to the village or the lookout point,
    which are in the lower left corner of the map. Either one will take you to
    the lookout point, so it doesn't matter which one you go to.
    After exploring, or if you choose not to explore at all, walk to the stairs
    on the lookout screen. Guybrush will go down the stairs and down the mountain
    path and onto the dock. On the first building you encounter, you can see a
    poster. You can look at it if you want to, or just walk away. You can't pick it 
    up. When you're finished, walk to the right side of the screen. Doing this 
    twice will get you to the Scumm Bar, which is where the lookout advised you to 
    go. Open and walk to the door.
    You will be faced with a room full of drunken pirates in blue suits. You can
    also see a dog, and occasionally, the cook. Talk to these pirates if you
    wish; some of them have interesting things to say. Well, not really. But talk
    to them if you're bored. When you're done, head over to the curtains on the
    right side of the room. Seated at a table here are the important-looking 
    pirates. Talk to them, or wait for the cook to leave the kitchen and go in 
    When you talk to them, they'll tell you how to become a pirate. For more 
    details, ask them what you need to do to become a pirate. Or just look here.
    The three tasks are as follows:
     - Mastering the sword: Track down and defeat the Sword Master.
     - Mastering the art of thievery: Steal an idol from the governor's mansion.
     - Mastering the art of treasure huntery: Find the Lost Treasure of Melee
    When you finish talking to the important looking pirates, or if you choose to
    do this before talking to them, wait for the chef to come out of the kitchen.
    When he passes the curtains, walk to the kitchen door. If you open it while
    he's in there, he'll kick you out, and if you try to go in while he's still
    on the screen, he'll tell you not to go in there. Anyway, just wait for him
    to leave and then you can go in.
    Once in there, the first thing you'll want to do is grab the pot under the
    counter. Well, maybe not want. But it's the first thing you _should_ do. Then
    you can pick up the hunk o' meat on the counter. Toss it into the soup if you
    want. Then pick it up again and you'll have stewed meat. Actually, it doesn't
    really matter if you do that now or later, but you should probably get it
    done now to save any extra trips to the kitchen. That done, open the door on
    the right side of the kitchen and head out to the dock.
    Back outside, walk to the end of the dock and move around until you hit the 
    loose board. Walk on the board until the bird flies away, then run in and pick 
    up the herring. Walk back into the kitchen, then back into the bar. Leave the 
    building. You'll see a little cutscene at this point. Watch it. Or press the 
    escape key to skip it. Either way. Your call.
    Walk to the left and back up the mountain to the lookout point. Walk to the
    right and go to the overview. Go to the clearing (the colored dot in the
    approximate center of the island). Walk to the left then head on over to the
    circus tent.
    When you enter, you'll see two guys in ridiculous outfits arguing about
    cannon testing. These are the Fettucini brothers. When you get a chance, say
    something. Any of the options you're given will work. They'll dash over to
    Guybrush and offer him a job. Ask how much they'll pay you (the answer is 478
    pieces o' eight), then take the offer. Tell them you have a helmet. When they
    ask for it, give them your pot. Watch Guybrush get launched into the pole. Fun!
    It doesn't matter what you say here. They'll go back to their bickering. For 
    those of you not in the know, the line about Bobbin is a reference to the old
    LucasArts game Loom. Look it up if you care to know more.
    Now, move your cursor around until you find the fork. Click on it. Take the
    upper left path. Pick up the yellow flowers on the right side of the screen,
    then go back out.
    Go back to the overview, then back to the lookout point, down the stairs, and
    back into town. Or just click on the village and you'll automatically end up
    going down the cliff.
    Walk to the right until you reach an archway, then head through it. Guybrush
    will find himself in the main part of town.
    You can talk to the citizen of Melee, but you'll only get something out of
    him if you tell him that you once had a barber named Dominique (this will be
    back later in the MI series). Then he'll offer to sell you a map, which you
    should buy.
    Across the street, you can see three men and a rat. Talk to the men. If you
    insult the rat then move the cursor over it, they'll tell you not to touch
    it. If you do this enough, the rat will run away. If you talk to them about
    the guy across the street, they'll call his maps cheap and try to sell you a
    real map. Then they'll confess that they're selling the minutes to the last
    Melee Island PTA meeting and ask if you still want them. Say you'll take one
    if they give you 2 pieces o' eight. Easiest money you'll ever earn. In this
    game, anyway. Except maybe the cash you earned letting two guys launch you from
    a cannon into a big pole. 
    Now, head up the street and open the first door on the right. Walk in. You'll
    find yourself in a shop full of chickens. The only thing you can pick up in
    here is the rubber chicken sitting on the trunk in the lower-right corner of
    the room. Grab that, then walk over to the right side of the room to meet the
    voodoo lady.
    She knows everything you're going to say before you actually say it. Ask
    about everything you can, and when she asks if you're sure you want to know
    the future, say yes. She'll tell you a bit, then disappear in a puff of
    smoke. Leave the shop.
    Walk through the archway under the clock to get to the back part of town.
    Head into the first building. Once inside, pick up the sword (it's on the red
    and blue boxes behind the counter) and the shovel, which is in the top left
    corner upstairs. You can try to leave, but the shopkeeper will yell at you and
    you'll have to go back and pay. So just talk to him. Ask him about the
    sword and shovel and buy both of them. Then leave.
    Ignore the sounds coming from the alley (or go investigate... nothing really
    changes). Walk past the church and the jail and through the the other
    archway. Then walk to Governor's mansion.
                             Mastering the Art of Thievery
    If you want to get into the Governor's mansion, you'll have to get past those
    deadly piranha poodles firt. Use the yellow petals you picked up in the
    forest on the stewed meat. Give the meat with condiment to the deadly piranha
    poodles. Open the door to the mansion and walk in.
    Open the door at the top of the screen and walk in. Enjoy the next scene.
    And pay close attention to the actions Guybrush is using. Quite amusing.
    When that's over, walk out of the mansion and back down to town. Walk into
    the jail (that's the building on the left) and talk to the prisoner. Guybrush
    will make a comment or two about poor dental hygiene, then refuse to talk to
    the prisoner until his breath improves. Walk out of the jail and over to the
    Talk to the storekeeper and tell him that you could really use a breath mint.
    He'll give you an entire package of Grog-O-Mints for only one piece o' eight.
    Go back to the jail.
    Give the breath mints you just bought at the store to the prisoner. Ask him
    if he's got a file. He'll offer to give you his only possession, the carrot
    cake his Aunt Tillie made him, if you give him something to get rid of the
    rats. Give him the gopher repellent you picked up in the mansion. Use the
    cake. Walk back to the mansion.
    Walk over to the gaping hole in the wall where the painting used to be. Watch
    some more as Guybrush gets the idol.
    It doesn't matter what you mumble here. The sheriff will go away, leaving
    Guybrush alone with Elaine. Again, whichever option you choose, there will be
    no changes whatsoever in the storyline. Open the door so you can leave.
    Your escape will be cut off by Fester Shinetop, who will tie Guybrush to the
    idol and huck him into the ocean.
    Remember when Guybrush was talking to the pirate leaders and they asked if he
    had any special skills? Guybrush said he could hold his breath for 10
    minutes. And it's true. You've got 10 minutes to get out of the water. Ignore
    the sharp objects lying everywhere that you could use to cut the rope if they
    were close to you. All you have to do is pick up the idol. Guybrush will grab
    the sword and climb out. Or you could stay for 10 minutes, let Guybrush
    suffocate, and read all the conversations going on overhead and admire the
    nice colors Guybrush will turn. This is the only way to die in Monkey Island.
    Savor it.
    When Guybrush reaches the dock, Elaine Marley will show up. They'll talk for
    a minute, call each other a few names (Plunder Bunny?), then make plans to go
    back to the mansion for some... happy time. But first, Guybrush has to finish
    the trials.
                                  Mastering the Sword
    Walk to the right, then head up the mountain and over to the path. Go to the
    house on the right side of the island.
    Halfway there, Guybrush will be stopped by a troll on a bridge. Just give him
    the fish you picked up in the kitchen, and walk past. The troll will make
    sure nobody is looking, then whip off his mask, revealing a guy looks strangly
    like George Lucas. The guy eats the fish, then puts the mask back on. Go
    to the house.
    Open the door to the house. Guybrush will knock, and a big guy with a smoking
    problem will answer, insult you a bit, and ask what you want. Ask him to
    train you. He'll laugh at you some more, but insist that you do have what it
    takes until he tells you that he likes your spirit and say he'll train you if
    you give him 30 pieces o' eight. Tell him you've got 30 pieces o' eight, show
    him you sword, and he'll let you in.
    Guybrush will wave his sword around a bit, then the trainer will bring
    out... THE MACHINE! After a few hours of this, you'll learn the true secret of
    sword fighting.
    He'll teach you a few insults, then send you out to learn some more at the
    hands of the pirates that are wandering around the island. Head out to the
    path, stop somewhere on the island (anywhere that isn't an actual location
    will do), and wait for an opponent to show up. Check the sword fighting guide
    for more information.
    Run around fighting until you have all of the insults and their responses
    (there are 16 of them), then you're ready to fight the Sword Master. Or you
    could just wait until the pirates say, "Wow! You're good enough to fight the
    Sword Master!" when you defeat them. You'll still be missing a few responses
    when they first start to say that, so you might want to hold out for a bit
    and get the others.
    When you're ready to fight the Sword Master, head back to the village and go to
    the store. Talk to the storekeeper and tell him that you're looking for
    the Sword Master, then follow him. Go to the island overview.
    Try to keep up with the storekeeper. If you can't, the correct way to go is
    to take the following paths:
     - Top-Left
     - Top
     - Right
     - Right
     - Left
     - Top
     - (Push Sign)
     - Right
    Guybrush will evesdrop on the conversation between the Sword Master and the
    storekeeper. When the storekeeper leaves, walk to the Sword Master and talk
    to her. Challenge her to a fight. See the sword fighting section for more
    information concerning her insults. If you defeat her, you'll get a 100% 
    Cotton T-shirt. Otherwise, she'll go into her house and you'll have to walk 
    away then come back before you can challenge her again. Once you've defeated 
    her, head back out of the forest, then click on the fork.
                         Mastering the Art of Treasure Huntery
    Look at the map you bought from the citizen of Melee and follow the
    directions found within. If you can't do that, take the following paths:
     - Top-Left
     - Left
     - Right
     - Left
     - Right
     - Top
     - Right
     - Left
     - Top
    Go right and use the shovel on the X. Guybrush will dig up a T-shirt. Head
    back to the village. 
                                   Assembling a Crew
    When you reach civilization, Guybrush will see a ghostly ship sail off into the
    distance. The lookout will come up behind him and tell him that the Governor
    has been kidnapped by LeChuck. Tell him that you'll get a ship and a crew
    together, and he'll tell you where they went and give you a note. Walk to the
    left or to the right and head into the Scumm Bar. 
    Pick up the 3 mugs in the first half of the tavern, then grab the 2 beyond
    the curtain. You can talk to the cook, or you can ignore him and go into the
    kitchen. He's too busy mourning the loss of the Governor to stop you. Fill
    one of your mugs with grog with the barrel and head out (go ahead and grab
    the meat).
    Head back to the prison. As you walk, the grog you got from the barrel will
    eat it's way through your mug. After your mug has reached 'near death' stage
    (move your mouse over it every time its condition changes), use it on another
    mug. Do this until you reach the prison, then use your grog on the lock. It
    will melt, and you'll free the prisoner, who will tell you his name is Otis,
    offer to do anything for you, refuse to save the Governor, then walk off.
    Watch the cutscene, find out Fester's true identity, then head out of town.
    Go visit the Sword Master again, and tell her the governor's been kidnapped.
    Two crew members down, one to go. Visit the island in the upper-right corner of
    the map, and use your rubber chicken on the cable. Walk to the house, open the 
    door, and go on in. Tell Chrome Dome that the Governor's been kidnapped, and 
    run the idea of getting a ship and crew together by him. He'll make you touch 
    the monstrosity that bit off his hands. Open the door, and do something to it. 
    Anything. Frightening, isn't it? Meathook will then join your crew.
    Go back to the island map thingy, and from there to the lights. As soon as
    you enter the shipyard, you'll be bombarded by Stan's sale offers. When he's
    done, tell him you don't have much to spend, and he'll show you the ship of
    your dreams: The Sea Monkey!
    Well, you've just gotta have the ship, right? But you still don't have that
    much to spend. So tell him you want it on credit, and he'll send you
    scurrying to your old buddy, and the neighborhood credit supplier, the
    shopkeeper. So tell Stan you'd rather go think about it some more, and go see
    the shopkeeper.
    The sign says "Ring bell for service." Ring the bell for service. The
    storekeeper will show up, moan about idiots and the stupid bell, and get his
    bum behind the counter. Tell him you're after a credit slip (claim to be
    employed), and he'll go up to his safe to get one. Watch him, and write down
    the combination. After he opens it and gets out the slip, pick any answer
    choice, and he'll put it back. Worry not--we'll get that slip another way.
    Ask him to go see the Sword Master, and open the safe. Guybrush will take the
    credit note. That was easy, wasn't it? Thought so. Go back outside, and hike
    on over Stan's.
    As soon as Stan jumps on you to sell you something, ask to see the cheap ship
    again, and offer him your credit slip. Ask to see the extras, but each time
    he offers something, tell him you don't want it. When that's done, say you
    don't want it after all, and as you're walking away, Stan will call you back.
    Go back. Make an offer of 5000 pieces o' eight. He'll take it.
    Congratulations. You gots yerself a ship. Go back to town.
    When you get there, Stan will be waiting with the Sea Monkey. Short after,
    you'll be joined by Otis. Tell him you thought you'd never see him again, and
    say anything you want to Carla. After a bit of chatting...
                                  Part 2: The Journey
    Well, you've got a relatively useless crew on your hands now. But at least 
    we're on our way. Sort of. In the cabin, open the desk drawer to find the 
    Captain's log. Snag the feather pen and the ink it's sitting in, then leave the
    cabin and climb up the rope ladder. Take the Jolly Roger and climb back down.
    On the deck, head for the hatch beside the mast. It's a bit hard to see at 
    first, but it's there. Downstairs, go through the door (rather than the second
    hatch) and open the cupboard in the kitchen to find an impressive cereal stash.
    Take a box and open it to find a prize. Open this as well to find a key. Go
    back to the previous room and go down through the hatch. 
    Open the chest in the lower right corner and look inside to get some wine. Pick
    up the rope draped over a barrel to the left of this chest, then open one of 
    the kegs on the left side of the hold to find some gunpowder. Go back to the
    captain's cabin.
    Use the small key you found in the cereal on the cupboard on the right side of
    the screen to unlock it. Pick up the chest inside. Guybrush will take it out.
    Open it to find a piece of paper and some cinnamon sticks, then read the paper.
    Let's have a look at the ingredients. 1 Cinnamon stick... Check. We found 
    cinnamon sticks with the recipe. 4 Leaves of Mint. A package of Grog-O-Mints
    should do it. 1 Human Skull (pressed). That would be the Jolly Roger. 1 squirt
    Squid Ink. Yep. We've got the ink from the cabin. 2 pts Monkey Blood? That wine
    is a pretty deep shade of red... We've been carring around 1 Live Chicken since
    we took it from the Voodoo Lady during the Trials. 3 oz. Brimstone? Gunpowder
    has brimstone in it. And we've probably got most, if not all, of the other 
    stuff listed at the bottom. Head for the kitchen.
    Put everything listed into the pot, then add whatever else you're toting around
    that the game will let you part with. When you're done, the pot will start 
    emitting funny green smoke. 
    When Guybrush wakes up, walk somewhere to make him stand. Pick up the pot near
    the cupboard, then go to the hold and open the kegs to get more gunpowder. When
    you're done, go back to the kitchen. Use the map you brought from the Citizen
    of Melee with the red-hot fire to make it burn, then return to the deck. Use 
    the gunpowder in the nozzle of the cannon and the rope on the cannon itself,
    then use the pot. Guybrush will light the fuse, wear the pot like a helmet 
    (just like earlier), and launch himself to Monkey Island.
                              Part 3: Under Monkey Island
    After Herman Toothrot goes away, walk somewhere to pull your head out of the
    sand. Pick up the banana lying on the ground and walk to the jungle. Head north
    and west, then look for the fort near the top of the moutain thing. Go there.
    Pick up the spyglass and the rope lying on the ground, then push the cannon and
    tell Herman to leave you alone. Take the gunpowder and cannonball that fell out
    of the cannon and go back to the jungle. This time, head for the fork where the 
    dry river bed meets the running water. Take both the note and the rock weighing
    it down from the boulder. 
    When that's done, put your gunpowder on the dam and light it using one of the
    following methods: You could open the spyglass and use the lens with the sun, 
    or you could use the noteworthy rock (which is actually flint) with your 
    cannonball (which is made of steel). Either way, a rock will fly off, starting 
    a cascade of water. Head for the pond at the end of the new branch of the 
    Pick up the note, ignore Herman, and grab the rope near the unhealthy-looking
    guy. Return to the jungle and go back to the river fork. Cross the bridge here
    and use the footholds to reach the next level. Pick up the note and take a look
    at the sculpture there. Push it around a bit, then climb up the next set of 
    footholds. At the top, push the rock on the edge of the cliff. It will fall 
    down, hit the sculpture, and end up being catapulted over the jungle. 
    Go back down and adjust your aim so it hits the banana tree on the beach. You 
    can also use it to hit your ship if you want to. There is a different note next
    time you go near the sculpture. Every time you need to launch a rock, you'll 
    have to pick up a new one from the heap. When you hit the tree, go back to the
    beach and pick up the bananas on the ground, then head for the jungle and go to
    the crack.
    Tie one of your ropes to the strong branch at the top and climb down, then tie 
    the other one to the sturdy stump to get to the bottom. Pick up the oars and 
    climb back up. Go to the beach and use the oars with the rowboat there. Ride
    your boat around the island to the part past the mountains that you couldn't 
    reach before. Land on the only beach on this part of the island and go to the
    The village looks deserted, so head to the west and steal the bananas from the
    bowl of fruit. As you try to leave, you'll be confronted by the cannibals. They
    have a fruit fetish of sorts. Watch for three-headed monkeys and try to talk 
    your way out of this one...
    When you're given the chance to offer something, wait it out. They'll toss you
    in jail. Grab the note and the skull on the floor, then pull up the loose floor
    board and leave. Get back into your boat and return to the beach with the 
    banana tree.
    Go into the jungle and look for the monkey. When you find it, give it your
    bananas. All of them. When you leave the screen, the monkey will be trailing
    you. Take it to the northeast side of the island and visit the clearing. Walk
    to the right until you reach the totem poles, then pull the middle nose on the
    one in the back. The monkey will latch on, and you'll be able to enter the 
    gate. Go on in. 
    Look around on the ground and pick up the wimpy little idol, then go back to 
    the jungle. Head back to your boat and row to the other side of the island, 
    then go visit the cannibal village again. 
    Walk all the way to the left, then turn around again. The cannibals will try to
    keep you from leaving. Give them the wimpy little idol. Now that you're free to
    roam around the village, go back to the prison hut and take the banana picker,
    then leave again. Herman Toothrot will be standing around muttering to himself.
    Give him the banana picker to get the key to the gigantic monkey head. Looks 
    like a Q-tip to me. Leave the village, then return. Talk to the cannibals to 
    learn about the root and the Head of the Navigator, then offer them your 
    leaflet. They'll give you the Head. Leave the village.
    Get into your boat and go to the beach near the clearing. Grab the bottle lying 
    on the ground and go to the gigantic monkey head. Once there, use your key to
    clean out its ears, which will open up the head. Go in. Use the head and follow
    the way it points. When you reach the Ghost Ship, talk to the head. Ask for the
    necklace, then threaten him until he gives it up. Then climb aboard. 
    Go to the left and open the door. Walk in to find yourself in LeChuck's cabin.
    Use the magnet from Stan on the key on the wall to get it, then leave the cabin
    and go back to the right side of the deck. Go down the hatch and walk past the 
    sleeping guy to the hold. Pick up the ghost feather lying on the floor, then 
    go back to the previous room and use the feather to tickle the sleeping ghost's
    feet. Do it again, then grab the jug o'grog and return to the hold. Use the key
    from LeChuck's room on the hatch, then go down. 
    Use the jug o'grog with the dish to distract the rats and walk past them. Pick
    up some cooking grease and go back up to the deck. Try to open the door near
    the hatch. It will squeak. Add some grease and try again. Open the door and go
    in, then pick up the ghost tools hanging on the wall. Go back down to the hold.
    Use the ghost tools on the crate and look inside to get the voodoo root, then
    leave the ship and walk back into the cave. Guybrush will take care of the 
    rest, and you'll end up back at the cannibal village. The cannibals will run 
    off to make the potion, and you'll be left alone with a three-headed monkey.
    Say whatever you want, then the cannibals will come back with the root. Go back
    to the jungle...
    Threaten the first mate with your root beer, ask him where the ghosts are, and
    promise not to hurt him. He'll tell you about the wedding, so go to stop it. If
    you sunk your ship, Herman will show up at this point to offer Bob a ride. He's
    nice enough to lend it to you, too.
                            Last Part:  Guybrush Kicks Butt
    Head right and walk into town. Spritz every ghost you see on the way. The 
    church we're headed for is between the general store and the prison. Go, stop
    the wedding, and try to zap LeChuck. He'll knock Guybrush all over the island.
    You'll end up at Stan's. When you get out of the machine, pick up the root beer 
    lying on the ground and use it on LeChuck. Finish off the game with whatever
    makes you happy. Note that the credits include Chocolate Supply Supervision.

    When someone's path is blocked, you'll be taken to the fight screen. The pirate 
    you stopped will say something, then Guybrush will be given a chance to speak. 
    Choose the challenging option ("My name is Guybrush Threepwood. Prepare to 
    die!") to initiate a fight.
    The basic chart of a fight:

    Q. What to these Minutes do?
      They serve as a nice ingredient for the secret recipe. Other than that, 
      they're completely and utterly useless. Kind of like underpants.
    Q. What's with the guy with the LOOM badge?
      Loom is another LucasArts adventure game. It's cheap advertising. Why 
      shouldn't they take advantage of it, eh?
    Q. I died! Now what?
      Liar. You're given the option to retry in the only situation that can kill 
                     .:*~*:.  < 6.  Secrets/Easter Eggs >  .:*~*:.
    Loom References
    In the beginning of the game, before all the pirates flee from the Scumm Bar,
    one of them is wearing a pin advertising Loom, another LucasArts game. Also,
    after being launched out of the cannon, Guybrush can say something about being
    Bobbin and looking for his mother. Another Loom reference.
    Kill Guybrush
    In order to kill our valiant hero, you'll have to leave him underwater after
    the Sheriff chucks him in. In 10 minutes, Guybrush will run out of air
    (turning pretty colors before doing so), and bye bye Guybrush. Worry not. You
    can retry.
    Sink your Ship
    If you shoot your ship while aiming for the banana tree, Herman will give you
    his boat to get back to Melee Island near the end of the game. 
    Sam and Max
    There's an idol in the shape of Sam and Max near the Monkey Head.
