- A Basic WalkThru - by Mary McBride
Note: This walk-thru is written from my notes, after playing the game
just one time thru. I did *not* play it again to de-bug walk-thru (so I
may have missed a detail) or to see if a more efficient approach were
possible, i.e., if more could be done at a location at one time. This
walk-thru reflects the way I played the game and the way I made
discoveries, as I played.
