I'm dumbfounded. I have no way to pass through it.

So...help?

    1. I wonder why Mr. K doesn't want to try beat the Challenge by himself?
    2. That Mole Woman dropped something...
    3. That Can O' Nuts looks kinda interesting...

    I am so embarassed that I am also stuck at this point, but I can't for the life of me figure out what to do next. The three points you raised were all things I know I need to think about, but I can't figure out what to do.

    I'm pretty sure the lady dropped the newspaper, but i can't get anyone to read it.
    I've talked out everything for everyone right now.
    I've looked at the other 3 reels, but I need to know how to read the hieroglyphics to get any farther on 3 or 4, and I can't figure out what to do with 2 -- the ticket seller keeps on kicking me out of the train. I'm thinking I should hide us all in the can of nuts I assume I have, but I can't leave the dialouge to activate it without the guy busting in on me.
    The hints are telling me to follow the mole lady, but I can't get anyone to tell me where she is, so I can't leave the theater.

    I tried to bribe people with the cookies or get them to read the paper (over and over again, in the hopes something would change), but none of it works. I know there must be something obviously simple I'm missing. Please help!

  • You have to search Kringels Bag while he's on stage. Now you know where he Elves (and the Molewoman) lives. :cool:

  • Getting through the gate is a multiple part process:
    1) Get Kringle up on stage so you can search his bag for the elf address
    2) Take some cookies from Kringle
    3) Stand on the tongue at the front of the gate and place cookies into the nostrils
    4) Darn you can't read hieroglyphs
    5) Go to the exit to head to elf street, the elves will trade the can for a toy concept but you can't do that yet. But look! the mole lady who was reading the hieroglyph paper went into the building. Perhaps you can ask her how to read them?

    At this point you cannot get any further in reel 1 as you cannot get the can of nuts. However reel 3 requires you to read the hieroglyphs to exit, which will place you on the train. There's more puzzles to be solved here but most notable the elves are working on an amazing toy, perhaps discovering what will give you the concept for reel 1? and Baby Amelia is sleeping, perhaps finding out what made her sleep will help progress reel 2?
