Do this for all the symbols’ snippets as you will need this information to solve three mini-puzzles. For the top row, write the numbers down based on how their map snippet appears from left to right. For the two side rows, write the numbers down based on how their map snippet appears from top to bottom. Click on the map to zoom in to take a closer look. Note: you don’t need to know what the Roman numerals are; you just need to write it down exactly as it appears.

Click to turn the coin so its pointer points to where the piece of gold was.
  • To pull the chain all the way down, click on the top of the chain and pull your mouse downwards, as far as it will let you. When the chain starts to retract, click on it again and pull downwards. Continue until you’ve pulled the chain all the way down.
  • Do these steps for all four coins.

  • Click on the steering well to trigger an objective hunt; you have to find the steering wheel pegs. Click off the vignette. Click on the barrels to start a hidden object hunt.

 13th Skull

  • Find all the objects. A cannonball is added to your inventory. Return to the main deck (south).

 13th Skull

  • Use the cannonball to break the grate. Drop it on the grate, then pick it up to add it back to your inventory, then take it again. It takes about three drops to break the grate. Once it’s broken, go down into the hold.

 13th Skull

  • Take the two wheel pegs. Click on the murky water.

 13th Skull

  • Move the debris around to find the remaining four wheel pegs. Return to the steering wheel (south twice, then up the stairs).

  • Click on the steering wheel. Add the six wheel pegs. Click to turn the wheel. Click off the vignette. Click on the barrels to start a hidden object hunt.

 13th Skull

  • Find all the objects. Rope is added to your inventory. Return to the ship’s hold (south then down the grate) and go forward towards the harpoon gun (if you can’t, go back up to the upper deck and turn the steering wheel).

 13th Skull

  • Click on the chest to start a hidden object hunt.

 13th Skull

 13th Skull

  • Click on the ledger.

 13th Skull

  • Mini-puzzle: Each number is surrounded by four pegs. The number of pegs to be pressed down is determined by its number. For example, 0 can have no pegs pressed down, 1 can only have one peg pressed down, etc. Start at 4 and press all its pegs down. Once the ledger opens, click on it to trigger an objective hunt; find all the ledger pieces. Click off the vignette. Click on the cannon.

 13th Skull

  • Take a cannonball, then add it to the cannon. Move the cannon (click and hold your mouse and run it towards the tip of the cannon) to aim it at the crow’s nest (see screenshot). Use the piece of flint to light the fuse. If you don’t knock down the debris blocking the crow’s nest, keep trying. Go back to the main deck (south twice).

 13th Skull

  • Take the ledger pieces from the second ship’s main deck and upper deck. Return to the first ship (south twice) and take the ledger pieces from the storeroom, main deck, and upper deck. Then go up the crow’s nest (click north twice). Take the ledger piece. Place the telescope on the base. Look through the telescope.

 13th Skull

Eventually it will reveal the bottom of the boat and you will see the name written. Click off the vignette. Return to the main deck (south three times). Move towards the cabin door.

 13th Skull

  • To solve this puzzle, you need to have used the telescope to see the name on the other ship. By clicking on the letters, spell the name of the ship backwards. Before the track resets, take note (or write down) the letters it scrambled. When you respell the name, take into account the letters it scrambled. For example, in my game, the name was RUBYLEE. By pressing E-E-L-Y-B-U-R, the track scrambled it to read R-B-U-Y-E-L-E. I adjusted accordingly by switching the E-L and the B-U. When the door opens, enter it.

 13th Skull

  • Click on the chest to start a hidden object hunt.

 13th Skull

  • Find all the objects. A treasure chest key is added to your inventory. Return to the hold of the second ship (south, through the hole in the floor, north twice, then through the hole on the floor). Click on the ledger on the barrel. Place all the ledger pieces. Go to the main deck (south).

 13th Skull

  • Click on the cabin door. Solve the same puzzle that you did to open the ledger. Go inside the room.

 13th Skull

  • Click on the chest. Use the treasure chest key to open the padlock. Look inside the chest at all your insignia cards. Leave and return to the first ship’s cabin (south four times, then go through the door). From the treasure room, go east to the captain’s table.

 13th Skull

  • To properly place each skull, open the Case Report and take note of the description of each pirate. Starting from the bottom left and working upwards in a U shape, place:
  • 5 – dandy (rings), 3 – duel (pistol), 2 – drunk (slumped over), 4 – double-crosser (back stabbing), 8 – enfeebled (hook hand), 7 – astronomer (stars on coat), 10 – minstrel (lute), 13 – nurse (the woman, I’m not being sexist, they’re pirates), 6 – cook (don’t know why, powers of deduction), 11 – chronicler (plume in hand), 12 – dwarf (shortest), 9 – wealthy veteran (officer’s coat), 1 – gambler (card).
  • Once you’ve correctly placed the skulls, a video starts and the game is over.
