In this adventure, your goal is to find and kill the evil vampire, Count
Dracula. This is probably the most boring of the Adams adventures because
you have to do a lot of waiting for some things to happen, and exactly when
they happen seems to be a random thing.
You start off in bed in Dracula's house. Get the sheets, then get up.
Go North into the hallway, then West into the kitchen. Enter the dumb waiter
and raise it, then go room. You are now in the pantry. Get the matches and
the garlic, then return to the dumb waiter.
At this point, you can do some exploring to waste time, because you're
waiting for the bell to ring (do a little mapping!). This will tell you that
the postman has delivered some mail to the house. Once you hear the bell, go
to the front door. You will find a postcard with a note clipped to it. Get
the paper clip and drop the note.
Now, return to the kitchen, get into the dumb waiter, and lower it to
the Work Room. Go into the room. Pick the lock on the closet door (with the
paper clip, of course), open the door, and enter the closet. Drop the stake
you're carrying, then get the vial and leave.
Back in the Work Room, close and re-lock the door, and drop the paper
clip. Now it's time to get a light source, so go Down to the dungeon. Tie
the sheets to the iron ring, then descend into the pit. Get the torch (it's
there even though you can't see it), and climb out again. You don't have to
bother with the sheets again for now.
Now go back up to the kitchen. Empty the vial (3 no-doz tablets come
out) then drop it. Now you have to wait until sunset, but you must be
careful here. Stop saying "wait" as soon as it starts to get dark outside,
and take a tablet. Then continue to wait until nightfall, at which time,
light your torch.
Wait a little longer, then enter the oven. It's a solar oven, so you
can never get in here during the day. Get the nailfile that's inside, and
leave the oven. At this point, you have done all you can, so you might as
well go back to bed. Remember to unlight the torch before going to sleep.
This night you will be bitten, and there is nothing you can do about it.
THE COUNT Part Two
The next morning, you will notice that the sheets are on the bed again. Get
them, then get up. Tie the sheet to the bed, then get the sheet (loose end),
open the window, go out the window, and drop the end of the sheet over the
Now climb down the sheet, go to the Window Box, then go through the
window into the room. Get the portrait of Dracula, then drop it. This will
reveal a secret passage. If you want to explore it, go ahead (light torch
first). Just make sure you unlight the torch before trying to climb back up
Well, here you have to do some more waiting, as now you have plenty of
time to kill until the mailman brings a certain package. So, just mess
around again until the bell rings. At that point, go to the front door
Open the package. Inside are a bottle of blood and a pack of
cigarettes. Get the cigarettes (make sure you say "pack"!). Now go back to
the kitchen and get the tablets. After that, go back down the sheets to the
room with the secret passage. You should do this before night falls.
THE COUNT Part Three
Now wait for sunset the same way you did the night before. Once the sun
sets, light your torch and go into the passage. Follow it along to the
crypt. Get a cigarette (you may have to drop something first), then smoke
it. Dracula's (empty) coffin will appear (this is the only way to make the
Open the coffin and go inside. Use the file to break the bolt on the
coffin, then get out again. Drop the cigarette, pick up anything else you
may have dropped, and leave the passage. Now, take a second cigarette from
night, it really isn't necessary, since you can take three bites before
succumbing. So, you might just as well put out the torch and go to sleep.
Once again, you wake up in the bed, with the sheets. Get them, and tie
them to the bed as you did the day before. Instead of climbing down however,
first go to the dumb waiter and from there to the Work Room. Use the clip to
pick the the lock on the closet door so you can get the stake. Also make
sure you grab the mallet on your way out.
Now that you have the stake and the hammer, go up to the kitchen again,
and from there to the bedroom and down the sheets to the secret passage.
Light the torch, enter the passage, and go to the crypt. Smoke the
cigarette, and the coffin will appear again.
Open the coffin, go inside (yes, you must!), and apply the coup-de-
grace to the vampire. TA-DA! You're a hero! (Hey, you're pretty good at this
stuff. How are you with voodoo...)
