Ergh! this Puzzle is so annoying! It would be easier if the person who wrote the numbers didn't have the handwriting of a box of shallots. I got it on my first playthrough, but on the second playthrough, it is extremely hard to read the numbers.--Dfskelleton 21:07, November 28, 2009 (UTC)
- Same, but I think that's what makes it a puzzle. If the writing were uniform, like what I'm typing right now, it would be too easy. Robert Orville Berkshire 22:18, November 28, 2009 (UTC)
The other annoying thing is that "a game of turning white to black and black to white" can be refered to Reversi (which is known as Othello). It misleaded me and spent few hours to realise that it's wrong answer... SagePtr (talk) 02:46, April 16, 2014 (UTC)
No, you were actually correct. The author of the page was wrong even if he arrived at the correct solution, by misplacing macbeth and then omitting it. The article is edited now. Zhnigo (talk) 18:46, May 1, 2015 (UTC)
Who solved this on Hard without internet back in 2003?
Replayed this game recently. I still have that same awful feeling when I arrive at this puzzle. Back in 2003, I had no internet and my closest connection was at the local library (yeah for real). And of course, I wasn't into Shakespeare at all. Imagine my face when I started the game on Hard Riddle and got to this puzzle. I actually re-explored the whole mall in attempts to find more clues but no, the clue were actually the books themselves and the god-awful cryptic memo by the door.
The next day, I went to the library and got the door code on gamefaqs. The day after, I went back at the library to get all remaining puzzle solutions for the game. I should have known it would only get worse from there (brookhaven keypad, crematorium, tarots).
So, who are the absolute madman/woman who solved these puzzles without using internet or going outside of their homes? I think the expression "over the top" doesn't really qualify here when I look at the solutions. "Hard" puzzles? Not cool at all.
