                The Secret of Monkey Island Unveiled
                    a walkthrough by SYNDICATE
  Well, after many hours of playing this game and replaying it, it's

finally right here on your computer. The complete walkthrough for the Secret of Monkey Island by Syndicate. Part 1 and 2 were typed by Baron Samedi. Part 3 was typed by Dynaster. If you get a little confused while reading this file, it's probably because you haven't explored the game enough before consulting this. This is meant to be a last-ditch effort for the hopelessly lost, not a bathroom novel, so please, try to finish the game with as little help from this text as possible. We left all the interesting but unneeded stuff out, so if you just print this out and walk right through you'll be missing 99% of the fun.

  Also included in this arc is a save just before the end.  If you're not

sure you wanna take the time to play this game, load up the save and check it out. Use the rootbeer on LeChuck while he's getting ready to punh you. The humor in the end is typical of what you'll find all through the game.

                     Part 1 - The Three trials

Open Scum Bar door. Walk in. Talk to the three important pirates behind the curtain. Tell them you wanna be a pirate. When you're done listening to them, wait by the door to the right. When the cook comes out, do NOTHING till he leaves the screen. Then, walk in the door. Pick up meat and pot. Use meat with stew. Pick up meat in stew. Open door to right. Walk out to the right of the dock and step on the board at the bottom 4 times, and after the 4th grab the fish before the seagull lands. Leave the bar. Go right through the archway. Go around the citizen and into the first door on the right. Pick up rubber chicken. Leave the room. Go back up to the lookout and to the pathway behind it. Go to the clearing. Go into the tent to the left. Get the bros' attention. Ask them how much they'll pay, then agree to do it. Tell them you have a helmet and give them the pot for proof. Grab your cash and go back to town. Talk to the citizen, and tell him you know Sven. Buy the map. Go thourgh the arch under the clock and into the shop. Pick up the sword and shovel. Talk to the storekeep and buy both. Leave, and go back to the path by the lookout. Go to the fork. Go to the path at the back of the screen. Pick up plants. Go to path on left side of screen. Go right. Go left. Go right. Go back. Go right. Go left. Go back. Go right and use the 'X' with the shovel. Go back to forest path, and go to the bridge. Give the troll the fish. Go to the house and knock. Ask the guy to teach you to be better than the swordmaster, and insist that you do, in fact, have what it takes (a little persistence overcomes his doubts). Give him 30 pieces and show him your sword. When the training's done, go back to the path. Go to a spot just to the left of the fork, and just wait around for pirates to run into you. You must be standing still to talk to them.

This is where you must learn the art of the insult. Tell each pirate to prepare to die. The battles start with your insult. Always use one you haven't heard a response to, if possible. If the pirate has no comeback, you get another insult. If he knows the comeback he gets to insult you (but you just learned a response). A fight ends when one of you 'decisively' insults better. You must keep getting fights until someone tells you you're good enough to beat the swordmaster.

Go back to the fork. Go back. Go back. Go right. Go right. Go left. Go back. Push sign. Go right. Fight the swordmaster.

When fighting the swordmaster, she will try to insult you. You must keep coming back with witty responses. Here's a partial but extensive list of her insults and responses we've found to work. These should be more than enough to win, but if you lose, try again. You might even want to fight more pirates to learn responses you need but don't have.

          Insult                                 Response

I will milk every drop of blood from How appropriate, you fight like a your body. cow.

My tongue is sharper than any sword. First you better stop waving it like

No one will catch ME fighting as bad You run THAT fast? as you.

I usually see people like you passed So you got that job as janitor after out on tavern floors. all?

I've got a long, sharp lesson to And I've got a little TIP for you, teach you today. get the point?

Every word you say to me is stupid. I wanted to make sure you feel

                                      comfortable with me.

My wisest enemies run at the first Even before they smell your breath? sight of me.

Now I know what filth and stupidity I'm glad to hear you attended your really are. family reunion.

My last fight ended with my hands I hope now you've learned to stop covered with blood. picking your nose. A

Now go back through the town, to the governor's mansion. Use yellow petal with stewed meat. Give meat to dogs. Go into the mansion. Take vase. Go into door next to vase, and watch the fun. Go back to town and talk to the prisoner. Go to the store and ask for a breath mint. Go back to the prisoner and give him a breath mint. Give him the gopher repellant. Open the cake. Go back to the gov's house and walk to the gaping hole in the wall. After more fun stuff, Shinetop throws you in the sea. Pick up the Idol, and you'll take a sword and get out of the water. Go to the fork and follow the instructions above to get to the swordmaster's house again. Tell her about the governor. Go down to the shore. Walk to the pole. Use the rubber chicken on the cable. Climb down and go into the house. Tell the tattoo guy about the governor. Suggest that you get a crew together to get her back. Open the small door. Touch the bird (any verb should work). Go back to the path. Go to the lights (Stan's Used Ships). Tell him you don't have much to spend. Go to the Scum Bar. Take any 2 mugs. Go into the kitchen. Use ONLY ONE mug with the barrel of grog. VERY QUICKLY run for the jail cell. After going through the second arch, use mug near death with the other mug. Go to the prisoner's cell, and use the mug on the lock. Go to the shop. Tell the shopkeeper you need credit. Tell him you have a job, any job will do.

This is VERY important. He will open the safe to get a note out. When he realizes you don't have a job he'll open it again to put it back. You MUST WATCH VERY CLOSELY. This part changes from game to game. The easiest way to remember is just keep track of where the handle changes direction. If you screw up, just leave the shop and come back in. He'll keep on doing it over for as long as you need.

When you're sure of the combination, ask him to get the swordmaster. When he's gone, go to the safe. Pull the handle for counter-clockwise turns. Push the handle for clockwise turns. If you get it right (eventually, you will), it'll open by itself. Go back to the used ship salesman. Ask for the cheap ship, and tell him you want it on credit. Make him an offer.

This next part really sucks, but what do you expect when you're dealing with a salesman? It seems the fastest way to get the boat is to offer 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000. Then start to leave but come back. Offer 5000 again then start to leave and come back. Offer 5000 one more time and he should give in. If not, just be persistent.

Go back towards town.

When you get to the dock you'll meet up with Stan and your Crew. Thus ends part 1. Solve for part 2 follows.

                        Part 2 - The Journey

Pick up feather pen and ink. Open drawer and look inside. Walk to rope ladder. Take the Jolly Roger. Go back down to the deck. Walk to hatch. Walk to door. Open cupboard and take cereal. Open cereal and look at the prize you get. Pick up pot below and to right of cupboard. Use business card in fire. Go up the ladder and down the next hatch. Open a keg on the left. Pick up rope. Open chest at bottom right of screen and look in. Go back to the captain's quarters. Use small key in cabinet. Take and open chest. Look in it. Go back to the kitchen. Use cinnamon, wine, gunpowder, key, cereal, Jolly Roger, dusty book, ink, pen, breath mints, both t-shirts, and chicken with pot. Peel yourself off the floor and go back to the cargo hold. Open the kegs on the left again. Go up to the deck. Use rope with cannon. Use gunpowder with cannon nozzle. Use pot.


Go to the shore of Monkey Island. On the shore pick up the bananna. Go an inch or so north-east to a monkey… give him the bananna. NOw, go to the beach to your far north (a little bit west also) and grab the message (from now on grab all the messages, they are not prereques., but they can come in handy!)… You will next go to the fort… Here you take the rope and spyglass. Push the cannon and gun powder and a cannonball will fall out, take them both. Now go east on the map to the "Riverfort" and go up the two clifsides… On the top you will take a rock and then roll it down the side, this will end up hitting the tree on the south shore… go back down and on your way out grab the flit (which appears with a note by the dam)… Then take the gunpowder and use it with the dam… use the flint with the magnetic compass or anything metal and it will cause the destruction of the dam… Go to the pond from here (at the river's end and get the rope)… Now go back to the south shore and grab the two bannanas… give them to the monkey… go to the crack and then use the rope on the rock… then go down the rope and use the second rope on the strong stump… now go down and grab the oars… go back up and then go back to the rowboat off the south shore… you will then go along the eastern coast of the island around the east side and up to the northern shore… get out of the boat here and go to the village… At the village you will take the two banannas… Let the cannibals put you in prision and once you are in there take the skull and pick up the hidden board in the floor… this way you can escape… Go back to the southern shore and go to the monkey… give him both banannas (hungray eh?), now that he is fulk he will follow you around… lead him northeast untill you come to part of the island that looks like a penisila… there will be a clearing in the center of the area… take him here and pull on the nose of the totem pole… move away and he will do the same… now you can go through the gates to the monkey face… you will see a "little wimpy idol", take this and go back to the village… before they lock you up again give them the idol and they will let you in the hut. Go into the hut and take the bananna picker… when you leave the hut you will see the civilian (again!) and you should give him his bananna picker… in return you will receive the monkey head's key (a cotton swab)… you now go back to the clearing (southern shore) and use the key in the huge monkey ear… ta da! it will open up…


If you dont like mazes do not go to into the monkey's face… instead go back to the village and talk with the cannibals… ask them about the navigator and they will tell you that they can't give you him… while they are chatting among each other give them the literature you have on navigation and they will give you their navigating head… you will *NEED* him in the catacombs (even if you can get through the mazes)…


Use the navigator and look at his head when ever in doubt (this can be tricky!)… He will lead you to the ship… To get aboard the ship you must ask the navigator 5 times (nicely! PLLLLLLEEEEEAAASSSSEEE…) to give you his necklace… He will break down and give it to ya… Go into the hatch and to the right and pick up the chicken… all you get is a ghost feather… use this on the sleeping drunk in the next room TWICE and he will drop this mug o' grog… then go to the captains room and use the magnetic compass on the key… (cling!) got it… Go downstairs and open the hatch with the captain's key… go down here and use the grog in the rat's dish… he will die off permiting you to take some of that grease… then take the handful of grease and use it on the squeeky door, it will now open and you can take the ghost tools… take the tools down to the glowing crate and use them with it, this will yeild the magical root!!! Go back to the village and it will (automatically) give the cannibals the root… they will make you the seltzer with it, but when you get back the LaChuck ship is gone and he is off marrying your hoe…

– The End: Ghostbusting –

You will then return to the first island and there will be a gost awaiting you at the dock… use the seltzer on him (Want some root beer?) and to the same thing to the ghost in the middle of town on your way to the church… once you are in the church you will stop the marriage of LaChuck and then he will give you a love tap that will send you flying like you did when you went out of that cannon… you will land in the grog machine, which LaChuck is nice enough to help you out of…then he will continue to beat you ass untill you pick up the root beer beside you and use it on him…

                                  The END....

I hope you enjoyed this adventure and make sure you get all the other Lucasfilm games… Also don't be afraid to do ANYTHING in this game— i was unable to find a way to die! Special Hi's to The Shadow and Lucasfilm (the only software company we'd miss school and work for so we could stay up all night and play their games)…
