Elaine has moved away from governing, and Melee Island is run down. There are 39 Steam Achievements, all documented in the walkthrough below. This assumes you are playing on Hard Mode, with the Writer's Cut option enabled.


Talk to Chuckie. Try to open the outhouse door, but it is locked. Enter the shop to the right of the Scurvydogs sign. Look at the key on the pegleg, then take it.

Go back outside and into the Scurvydog shack. Put the outhouse key back on the hook Pegleg, then give the slug to the vendor in exchange for some Scurvydogs.

After returning outside and eating, head right through the floral archway. After meeting Dee, examine the anchor. Click on the starting line at the racetrack to challenge Chuckie to a race, then double-click on the finish line to beat him. Continue right and examine the picnic basket, then while the couple are talking, pick up some bread from the ground next to them. Use the bread to feed the cute duck in the middle of the pond.

Examine the poster on the side of the building (and remember what it says), then go right and enter the Scumm Bar. Head to the table to the right and talk to the new pirate leaders, making sure to mention the Secret of Monkey Island (2/15). Keep talking until you automatically leave the bar again. Go back inside and talk to each of the pirates near the entrance to mention the Secret of Monkey Island (5/15). Head along the jetty towards LeChuck's ship and look at the job openings board - you will automatically talk to the quartermaster. Make sure you try to get a job, but you will be recognised and blacklisted from the ship.

Return to the dock and you will see the Voodoo Lady go past. Follow her to the right towards Low Street. After talking to Elaine, read the plaque beneath the statue on the right (and remember what it says), then enter the International House of Mojo. Talk to the Voodoo Lady about everything including the Secret of Monkey Island (6/15), and you will be given a hint book. Look at the bag of disguises to find about a magical eyepatch. Buy the ceremonial knife and forgiveness frog on the shelf at the bottom of the screen, and the shrunken head on the shelf along the back wall. Leave the shop.

Cross the road and enter Wally's Maps-n-More. After talking to Wally and mentioning the Secret of Monkey Island (7/15), examine every item in the store Cartography Nerd. Now take the monocle from the table. Back outside, talk to the men of low moral fiber to mention the Secret of Monkey Island (8/15). Go through the archway towards High Street.

This will start with one card - click on it and answer it correctly. Now you need to keep an eye out for another 99 cards throughout the game. See the separate section on Trivia Cards below for more details. Next head through the right door into the kitchen. Talk to the cook about the Secret of Monkey Island (14/15) and about making your own mop. While you are here, go out through the door to the right and pick up the string from the end of the dock.

Leave the bar and head to Low Street, then come back to the docks and enter the bar again. Talk to the clean-looking pirate, who wants you to bring him a dish he recently had at the Governor's mansion. Go to Low Street and visit Wally, asking him how to find a mop-handle tree. Go back to the Governor's mansion. Try to borrow the book "Ingredients", but Carla first wants an apology. Use your pen on the forgiveness frog and write the following:

  • Dear Carla,
  • Sorry for losing the book I borrowed.

Pick up the sea sponge on the right, then leave this area and go to the forest in the middle of the island map. Go along the path into the deep dark forest. Open the map you received from Wally, which is different for each game. You just need to pay attention to the plants drawn at the exit from each area. As you make your way, make sure you use your knife on one of the carnivorous plants. Once you eventually reach the tree, use your knife to get a mop handle. Do not make a complete mop just yet.

Leave the forest, then head right at the forest entrance and enter the Museum. Talk to Conrad about the Secret of Monkey Island (15/15) Bragging. Examine the display case.

Walk past the quartermaster and stand behind the crates on the left. Use your eyepatch here, then go out and talk to the quartermaster, who just says you need your own mop. Save your game. Combine your mop handle with each of these items to make a mop, then show it to the quartermaster to get hired.

  1. String
  2. Stuffed animal

Load your game again and repeat so you have used all 4 possible mops Mop Top. You will end up on the ship to commence your journey Part Two.

Part 2: A Dangerous Journey

LeChuck's Ship

Open the crate to meet Murray. Pick up the pamphlet and some ghost chicken feed, then pick up your mop to start working. Swab the grease 20 times Super Swabbie. Now swab the 3 screws on the porthole in the far wall. Use your knife to remove all 3 screws, then try to squeeze through the porthole. Grab your mop again and swab up some grease, then swab the porthole. Repeat this 3 times, then you will be able to squeeze through. Also make sure you put some grease elsewhere on the floor (you will need it later).

On the outside of the boat, go left and save your game. Climb down to check out the rudder and wait for the 8-minute timer to expire. Repeat this with a 6 minute timer, and then a 4-minute timer Dead Dead Dead.

Load your game again. Go right and then climb up over the railing by using the ladder. Use your monocles on the shackles to the left and you will get another serial number. Head right and LeChuck will ask you to get a flattened skull. Go right and down into the ship, then go left to be thrown back into the hold. Pick up Murray. Go out through the porthole, up over the railing and down into the ship again. Examine the laundry machine and it will fall apart. Use your 3 screws to repair the machine, then put Murray in the machine to flatten him. Return up to the top deck and put flattened Murray into the cauldron.

After the cut-scene, go right and climb up to the crow's nest. Use the spyglass and pan all the way to the right until you see the other ship. After formulating your new plan, go back down to the top deck and talk to Rose near the cauldron - everyone will vote against the idea. You now need to convince everyone to vote in favor of it. Head back up to the crow's nest to find out that Flambe's favorite dish is a scorched Alaska. Go down into the ship and head left to the galley.

Talk to Putra about everything, then pick up her request for promotion. Also look at the pepper shaker on the left end of the table. Leave the galley and go right into LeChuck's cabin. After being kicked out, go back in again. Try to give LeChuck the promotion request, but you will instead end up receiving a swabbie report to complete. Save your game. Go around the ship and use the swabbie report on a total of 8 messes, loading again after finding the first 5 of them:

  1. The ghost rat on the right outside LeChuck's cabin.
  2. Any item in the galley.
  3. The greasy porthole in the hold.
  4. The grease on the floor of the hold (where you placed it earlier).
  5. Give some chicken feed to the small ghost chicken in the right of the hold; leave and come back to find some chicken splat.
  6. The spilled potion on the middle of the top deck.
  7. The empty crates on the left of the top deck.
  8. Gullet, stuck on the rudder underwater

You will get an achievement for finding all 8 messes Neat Freak. While you are down with gullet, take the knife from his back. Up on the top deck, give the swabbie report to Iron Rose to get her to initial it. Combine the stack of papers you receive with the promotion request. Go back and give this to LeChuck. Leave his cabin and go left, giving the knife to Flair Gorey. Enter the galley and give the signed promotion to Putra. Now get her to make a scorched Alaska, then pick it up. Go up to the top deck and use your knife on the glowing flare next to the cannon, then put the burning tip on the scorched Alaska. Try to eat this 4 times Hot Headed. Climb up to the crow's nest and give it to Flambe. Pick up the joke book that he drops.

Back on the top deck, give the joke book to Apple Bob. Now give the instructional pamphlet to Iron Rose (if you can't, keep talking to her until you can). Go up the stairs to the right and ring the ship's bell once - this time the vote will be in favor of your plan. Ring the ship's bell twice to call LeChuck out to the top deck. Go down to his cabin and swap your map with the map on his desk. Go back up to the top deck and load flattened Murray into the cannon. Light the cannon Part Three.

Part 3: Return to Monkey Island

Monkey Island

Walk right 3 times to get to the beach. Examine the tree on the left with the love heart 3 times, then kick it 5 times Not Bitter. Go further to the left and pick up the skull (1/6). Now head into the jungle to see the island map. Look at the map to the secret in your inventory. For the first step, go to the red berry bush. Go to the right past the stone monkey hand, then up past the wooden chicken, and right past the bees. Pick up the shovel to get caught in a trap.

After you are free, return to the map and go to the top of the brown mountain to pick up a skull (2/6). Next go to the beach on the right with the shipwreck to pick up another skull (3/6). Go to the giant monkey head and pick up the skull (4/6) from the path. Continue along the path and talk to your teammates at the giant monkey head, and continue right to talk to Murray. Pick up the arm bone from the ground here. Leave here and go to the volcano beach to the left of the map. Pick up the next skull (5/6), then enter the water. Go left past the anchor to pick up the final skull (6/6), then climb up the anchor chain.

Go left and down the rudder to see Gullet again. Talk to him about poetry, answering his questions:

  • Germs
  • Roses
  • Snack

Now give Gullet the business card and you will receive his poetry book. Go back to the giant monkey head and talk to your teammates about the book - they will transform it into a disguise book. Go back to LeChuck's ship. While you are on the side of the ship, recite the poem from the book. Now climb up the ladder to reach the top deck. Talk to Apple Bob to get some clues about the 3 things you need to find.

Go down into the boat and enter LeChuck's cabin. Take the book from the shelves on the right. Examine this in your inventory and read it carefully to find LeChuck's catchphrase on the page dated February 17. Next head to the galley and talk to Putra, making sure to call her a chef when given the opportunity. You will find out that LeChuck's favorite meal is "tentacles with daisy sauce". Go up to the top deck and ring the bell once, then go below deck and take the sheet music from the barrel on the left where Flair was standing earlier. Go back up to the top deck, then over the railing and down the anchor chain. Head right to the shore, where you will see a dead squid on the beach. Use your knife on it to get a tentacle. Return to Putra in the galley and give the tentacle to her so that she makes you LeChuck's favorite meal.

Head back to the giant monkey head and talk to your teammates again, telling them that you know everything. Over to the right, put the 6 skulls on the 6 poles near Murray. Use the arm bone on each of the skull and pay attention to the notes that are generated from each one, including Murray (random with each game). Look at the sheet music in your inventory, then conk the skulls to make the tune "Do Do Mi Sol Fa Fa Re". In the next section, say the correct words to complete LeChuck's catchphrase (random with each game, in LeChuck's diary).

  • Inside it was like walking on soft cheese, with rivers of pea soup that stank like a landlubber's baitbox.
  • I made a fishing line with my own hair!
  • Then we stuck an umbrella jighead in the beastie's mouth and reeled it in from the inside!
