Stuck on Chessboard tricksters scene with Hole in the Wall
« on: February 17, 2011, 10:55:38 PM »
Are you totally clueless on how to make the tricksters toss the seashell toward Hole in the Wall?  The solution came from CalmLunatic.  Read his reply near the bottom of this webpage.

The first part is to block the white checker from moving back towards the other two reds. Learn how the checkers move.

Someone is not paying attention to what I post.  I MADE IT AS FAR AS THE WHITE PAWN CLOSEST TO THE CASTLE EXIT (pawn = chess piece with the sphere on top of an upside down cone)!

Try figuring out where he's going to move to and then do something to prevent that in advance.

It's impossible this puzzle, Whenever I try to block the red pawn to throw to the other red pawn, if I block the path It throw back at the white checker piece

The puzzle is actually not that bad once you figure out the patterns, but figuring them out can take some pretty major effort. It does sound like you're blocking the wrong pawn. Also, remember that

Currently the red piece in the back has the shell. I've figured out I'm supposed to block them from passing it around, but I'm not sure how.

Below is a fairly explicit spoiler. So only use it if you are very stuck. And I mean VERY stuck. It's very entertaining to figure out.
