Let’s Play the Secret of Monkey Island, Part 16

The Journey

All right! Guybrush has finally left Melee Island, on his very own bought too! With his crew he is on the way to Monkey Island and the rescue of the beautiful Governor Marley! Let’s join them:

This can’t be good…

I’ve got a feeling that if Guybrush wants to rescue Governor Marley, or even get to Monkey Island he is going to have to do everything himself.

Soft Mutiny

The ship isn’t the big of a space there’s this main deck, above it the crow’s nest, the aft is mostly made up of the Captain’s cabin, below the main deck are the crew quarters and galley, and below those is the cargo hold. Threepwood makes his way back to his cabin:

That goes without saying Guybrush. Let’s explore:

Next, the desk:

Let’s read it!

Okay, that’s vague. Anything else in this place? Some more looking around reveals a locked armoire, an empty chest behind the steps and the inkwell and feather pen. Guybrush nabs those last two. With that he goes back outside and up to the crow’s nest:

A true pirate steals even from themselves! Nothing else to do or see from up here so it’s down, down, down we go.


The kitchen! I mean the galley! There any food around here?

So true! Captain Crunch, if you didn’t leave it to soak up milk for a couple of minutes, tore your mouth up! Nothing much else in the kitchen. Down again!

There are a couple of things in here worth having:

Rope? Check. Gunpowder? Check. Fine Wine? CHECK! And with that the ship has been explored. Did we miss anything?

Oh yeah, that. Well, if there is nothing else to eat…

I love prizes! What’d we get Threepwood?

Only one locked thing on this ship…

Let’s open it!

The longer I play the less I feel that “the pirate’s life” is for me.

Directions? Great! I was running out of ideas.

*reads list*

Mint leaves? Live chicken? Monkey blood?! This is a recipe! And it sounds like it makes something that tastes awful.

What else is there though?

I mean it probably tastes better than something Sandra Lee would make…

With the recipe, I mean directions to Monkey Island, in hand Guybrush returns to the galley:

“Close enough!”

“Who’s going to be able to tell the difference between a rubber chicken and a real one?”

“I don’t KNOW that it doesn’t come from a squid”

“Sure, why not.”

“Oh hey! An ingredient I actually have!”

“Monkey blood? Maybe?”

“Why not?”

“That means it worked, right? I hope?”

I guess things could be worse…

And then good things happen? We’ve got to be getting close to the Secret of Monkey Island, right?

Find out next week!
