I didn't get the logic behind distracting the pirates on spoon isle. I first tried to distract them by telling to look behind them, but as soon as I tried to put something in the chest, they caught me. Then, by chatting a little bit with them, I tricked them into the staring contest. I thought I had the solution, but I could not end the dialog at this point. I have to say something before I can access the inventory. The three choices lead to the two pirates ending the contest. However, the last choice (look behind you) makes them break the contest and look towards the wood. But this time, they don't notice that you put something into the chest.
I don't get the idea. Why saying look behind you works, but only if they were doing a staring contest when you say it? So I solved the puzzle, but I am still puzzled:D
