This is the only walkthrough I could write,so I'll try to cover everything
that I can.I must tell you that Grim fandango is a great game,but the Lucas
guys missed on graphic effects.Before you start doing anything from this
walkthrough make sure to explore the entire location.Kudos to Lucasarts for
making this extraordinary adventure.

bone,then use it on the web.Use your scythe on the web then go to Glottis
and use the heart on him.Drive to the rightmost exit,then use the wheelbarow
to syncronize the pumps (move the wheelbarow back and forth to block the
pumps.Release the pump when the pump on the blocked pumps side is about to
pump.The solution should look like this:
First <- <- Second
First <- <- Second
First pumps push out ,second pull in.Both pumps on one side should pull
in,and the other pumps should push out at the same time.The tree will rock
back and forth.Release the wheelbarow (by pushing ) and pull the
lever.When Glottis climbs the tree pull the lever.Exit the Bone wagon and
pick up the sign,then go to the leftmost upper exit.Set your monitor's
lightning to maximum.Try putting the sign in all the spots and it will keep
showing the way to Rubacava.If you get the right spot a secret way will
open.Go in to the Bone wagon and drive through the secret way.Read the sign
and you will get a key.Board the Bone wagon and you should end up in front
of a big gate.Open the door and you will get chased by demon beavers.Go back
in and take three bones from the dam.Go in to the side way and use a bone on
the tar,then quickly use the extinguisher on the tar (push Keypad number 2
for the extinguisher).Repeat the proces untill you used up all the bones and
extinguished all three beavers.Go back out and use the key on the
padlock.You are now in Rubacava.Step in to the fog and Velasco will save
you.Go up in to the automat-restaurant and talk to Celso about
everything.Use the picture on Velasco and say :

get Velasco to believe that Naranja is dead and
find tools for Glottis.
Go to Calavera cafe's bar,pick up the liqueur bottle,talk to Chowchilla
Charlie and say:
"Right.So what are you doing in it?"
"How did you print fake betting stubs?"
"What else can you counterfeit?"
"Can you make reasonable union cards?"
Now that you have a ticket printer and a VIP pass go in to the bar and use
the pass on Glottis.Go to Max's cat track (if you see a folding bridge pull
the lever and go across) and head in to the litter room (open doors next to
the cat)and pick up the can opener .Go to the VIP lounge (stairs next to the
window with the guy braging about kitty hats) ,go in to the kitchen,steal

hookah water.Go to Toto's shack (cabin next to the cat track) then open the
fridge,open the crisper and run to Naranja's bottle.Pull out your baster and
wait for Naranja to get distracted then use the baster on the botlle.Search
him and you will find his tags.Go over to the blimp (go over the bridge and

stairs next to the stairs of the VIP lounge) ,go up the stairs and you will
find Carla. Step in front of the large metal detector and drink your

Lupe to get Lola's jacket,then exsamine it and you will find a peace of
paper.Go to Toto and use the paper on him.Now that you have the photo go to
the betting window from the cat track use the printer without facing
anything.Set the printer for:
Print the ticket and use it at the photo counter (the guy will ask for a
betting stub,if the guy brags about kitty hats you're at the wrong
window).If you do it right you will get another photo with Nick and Olivia
kissing so go to Nick and use the incriminating picture on him.Glottis won't
go out of the VIP lounge so go to Manny's ofice in Calavera cafe,use the
desk and you will start the roulette cheating sistem.Wait for the rightmost
light to turn on then press .

come along.Qiuckly talk to him before he goes away (if you don't talk to him
,and he goes away then you have to wait untill he goes around the ship once

He will come close to Glottis so snatch the lamp and turn towards the spirit
of the land,I mean...Glottis.Wait untill you get close to the pearl ,then
walk to the other side of the ridge.You should see a rock with some fealer
thingies sticking out. Well,walk around that rock cunterclockwise (start
walking through the fealer thingies,THEN around the rock)...poor Chepito.Go
in to the elevator,then choose the bridge that leads right,start down the
hall and in to the ofice.You will se another door so go through and you
found Meche...and Domino.After the cutsene you will find yourself in Manny's
third office (not what you expected from an office) with some kids making
light bulbs.Talk to the kids,and say:
"Why do you want to bite me?"
"What are you two doing in this cage?"
"Listen,children,I'm here to help."
"I'm here to help you get out of this cage."
"My hands are not too big to make light bulbs."
"I just don't have any of those litlee, tiny tools,that's all."
Pugsy will throw his hammer on you,then say:
"Okay,back to work."
Take the hammer and go to the little office where Meche is.Use the ashtray
so Manny moves it before Meche ashes.If you get it right Meche will burn her
stockings and throw them in the thrash,so pick them up from the thrash
can.Go down the elevator and head to the leftmost bottom of the screen where

make this one easy ,so do this:
pull the lever which will cause the conveyor belt to move downwards,
climb the belt and run to the leftmost top of the screen.
Now you will see a giant crane,so board it,
move it to the oposite side of the island,
lover the chain,
and get off.
Use the Bust-all on the claw,
board the crane,
lower the chain and raise it so the grinder gigamajigs will fly out.
Drive the crane to the opositte side,
lower the chain on the belt,
get out of the crane,
and down the belt.

safe's door jamb.Use the wheel and turn it left/right so you open the top
tumbler,then open the 2rd tumbler (from top to bottom),open the 3rd,and
finaly open the 4th tumbler.To check if you did it corectly,exsamine the
tumblers.If they are "ligned up,flush with the door jamb" then you did
it!When you line-up the tumblers,DON'T DO ANYTHING ELSE!!!Just use your
scythe on the tumblers,and turn the door knob.Go inside and close the safe
doors... Oh,Raol,Is this how you payed me back...Sorry,I got carried
away.Grab your scythe and use it on the yellow peace of metal above the
doors.Go in to Meche's cell and use your scythe on the home-plumbing
sprinkler system.Turn the wheel.Do you see that the water drained through a

Bruno,and get his "complimenary mug".You will hear Meche shouting ,so go
back up to the Gate.You will see that Virago got a one way ticket to
hellsville. Go downstairs and the Gate will give you a note.Read it.Go to
the small room under the train tracks.Talk to poor , sick Glottis.Say:
"What can I get you?Will anything help?"
"Can't we make a new hot rod?"
Go in to the kithchen and use Bruno's "complimentary mug" on the mug
rack.Open the Drawer and take a rag.Go outside and use the rag on the oil
container next to the tool cabinets.Go back in to the kitchen and use the
oily rag on the toaster and you are on your way!Now that you know that
Domino booby-trapped your car , go to the docks (don't tell me that you
forgot where it is) an talk to Velasco.He will go to Puerto Zappato so take
the bottle and go to the Blue Casket.Go in to the back and in to the
kitchen,then use the bottle on the big barell (or keg, as some people like
to call it).Go back to Glottis and use the botlle on him, then talk to

cabinet.Go to where the Bonewagon is and ose the liquid nitrogen on the
gelly.Walk across and use the bomb.Pick up the soldier's arm,then talk to
Meche,then go out of the LSA hideout.Go up the ladder,then the other ladder.
Take the coffe pot and climb the ladder behind the Thunder boys.When you get
above ,pour the coffe on them.Once they're gone, go back down,and put the
pot where you found it.Go in to the dressing room,and you will get a pretty
sleazy mask. Go back up the ladder and use the soldier's arm on the grinder
from the snow-making machine.Get the grinder and go down in to the casino.Go
down to the slot machines and talk to the chopped soldier twice (he is
wearing a trench coat), or three times,just to be safe.Once you find out
about how he is cracking the machies, talk to Meche twice.She will give you
a sheet,so use it on Chowchilla Charlie.When you "sheet" Charlie,quickly
talk to the machine-cracking soldier.Once Charlie gets out of the bathroom
wearing a toga,go inside the bathroom and you will look like a new man.Go
back in to the LSA hideout and take the photo from the trash can and use the
note from Hector on the pidgeon,and then use the photo on him (it).Go out of
the HQ and go to where Bowsley fell and you will get the Bonewagon's
suspention controls.Go in to the tunell where Bowsley ran.Go in front of the
cave and use the grinder.When the bone shreds fall,they will sprout.So, use
the grinder,the shreads will sprout,so come closer to the cave.Repeat those
three steps from the last sentence untill Manny finaly desides to go in the
cave...Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!A SEWER GATOR!Ok,don't panic,pull out
the remote and use it.Drive forward,then get on the platform on Manny's left
side.Get on the ladder and climb half way down.The sewer gator should
turn.when the gator turns climb up,pull out the remote and use it.Go down
the ladder and in to the florist shop.Do you see the ball of tape above the
door?Use your scythe on it and Manny will get thrown out by Bowsley. Go back
in and you will get a gun...oh, and some sproutella seeds.Go back in to the
casino.Look at the big Keno board and remember the latest number.Talk to the
big pink demon and you have to answer one of his stupid questions.They are
always different,but the answer is the same: the latest number from the Keno
board.If you loose track of numbers,wait for a new one to pop up.You should
end up in Hector's waiting room.Talk to Celso and his wife,say:
"Actually,I work for Hector.He sent me to answer your questions."
"The real question is,don't you feel thatyou guys are worth it?"
"What exactly are you saving your money for?A rainy day?"
"Well,enough about you guys,let me tell you about my problems."
"I just got back from the worst vacation I had."
Now you will find Hector and reveal your true identity,but still he will get
away.Climb the ladder behind the sign's leg and go over to the arm.Get on
the border and use the grinder on the cracked statue.When the soldier's arm
is gone,use the seeds on the statue,which will fall down.Climb the ladder
you first saw when you climbed behind the sign and you will get driven to
the murderous meadows.Go inside the greenhouse and you will get
half-sprouted by Hector.Once you are lying in pain,pull the liquid nitrogen
and use it on the flower (use it on yourself).Look it to the back seat of
the limmo and talk to the HEAD of LSA.Olivia will get sprouted,so open the
suitcase and then take Salvador's ticket.Go behind the greenhouse and walk
left or right at the bottom of the screen while holding the ticket.The
ticket will get agitated if you turn the right direction,so walk towards the
signal the card is picking up.The ticket will fall and you will find
Salvador's body.Search him and you will find the keys to the trunk of the
car.Go to the car and use the key on the trunk.When you get the gun, run to
the water tower and use the gun on it.Go to the doors of the green house and
