As the KQ guide always says, "If it ain't nailed down, pick it up, if it is nailed down, use a crowbar." ;)

(Something like that, anyway. ;))

That is actually true !!!, i didnt see one item u couldnt pick up :o

My first KQ was 6.  Took me forever to get past the Catacombs. Who would have thought you could pick that brick up on the Isle of Wonder?
Don't you mean the brick on the Isle of the Beast?
I thought you couldn't enter the catacombs without it... Doesn't Alex tell them he's not ready to go in if you're missing any of the items needed there? if not, this should go in the "dead-ends" thread  ;)

Koko -
You don't really need that elf in KQ1 to complete the game ;)
About KQ5 in XP - I never tried it myself, but I heard you should use a program like Dosbox or VDMSound to run it  :-\

Actually, that only happens the first time you arrive without the necessary items. If you "get yourself noticed" a second time, you get tossed in the catacombs even if you still don't have all the necessary items.

Jason, just wondering if you know that Sierra came out with two KQ1's...the original, original, and then the enhanced original.  Then later, Tierra made their enhanced original.  I think what he's talking about is Sierra's enhanced one...am I right or wrong on that one?

Ok, just wondering...I thought you were talking about Tierra's remake!

My first one was “King’s Quest III” . A friend had loaned me “The Black Cauldron” and the box came with one of those famous Sierra catalogs.  I wanted KQI but they only had III at my local store.   To this day KQ3 is one of my faves…

I think KQ3 & 6 are my faves, but I also love 4&5...so I guess I just love them all!  BTW, I've downloaded DOSBox, but now how do I get KQ5 to run...anyone have any ideas??  All help appreciated...just PM me so we don't clog up this thread!
