Monkey Island™ is © 1990 LucasFilm, and is the best game ever™. :)






Welcome to my guide for Monkey Island™ 1! The 5th, and best SCUMM out of the
first 5, this is a great game. Its funny, fun, not to difficult but not too
hard, and its got Monkeys in it. And its designed by Ron Gilbert. Monkey 
Island™ is the best game ever™ and its fact. So then, lets get on with the
guide and I hope you find it useful, and enjoy the game (you most probably will
well you better do).




Deep in the Caribbean, The Island of Mêlée™.

Guybrush Threepwood, pirate wannabee washes up on Mêlée Island™ and decides he
wants to be a pirate. He finds 3 pirate leaders, and must do the trials to
become a pirate. His special skills are holding his breath for 10 minutes. The
trials are to master the sword, master the art of thievery, and master the art
of treasure huntin'. So then, are you ready?




The hero of the Monkey Island™ series, Monkey Island™ 1 sees him trying to
become a pirate, on the island of Mêlée™. He meets LeChuck though, and must try
to kill him to get Elaine back, who he loves (awwww) and for some reason, she
loves him.

The Governor of Mêlée Island™ is kidnapped by the evil ghost pirate LeChuck,
who loves her, but she doesn't love him. She falls in love with Guybrush, but
she gets kidnapped, so Guybrush goes looking for her.

In the form of a Ghost pirate in Monkey Island™ 1, he loves Elaine, and decides
to kidnap her though. He is the arch nemesis to Guybrush as well, and his ass
gets kicked by Guybrush quite a couple of times.





After the introduction, and talking to the guy, you will appear on some sort of
dock. Walk to the right, and right click on the Scumm bar door (In MK1, right
clicking on an object does the obvious thing, like right clicking on a door
OPEN it, without you having to click on OPEN, then on the door). Go through,
and then walk to the right, and talk to the pirate leaders. Say the lines in
this order, 2, then 5 for a explanation on GROG (flashing) then say the last
line, to start the trials. Now, wait for the chef (fat slob) to come out of the
kitchen, then run inside. Make sure he is past the curtains before you can get
in without him noticing. Whilst inside, he won't come in, so your alright. Once
your in, PICK UP the HUNK OF MEAT. Then USE the HUNK OF MEAT with the pot o'
stew, then PICK UP the pot o' stew to get the STEWED MEAT. PICK UP the POT that
is hiding under the table you got the HUNK OF MEAT from. Walk out onto the dock
and then step on the end, at the bottom. The bird should go flying, do this a
couple of times and you will have enough time to PICK UP the FISH. Now exit the
scumm bar. Before doing the trials, we need the equipment first. So lets go get

Once your out of the scumm bar, go back to the lookout you started the game on,
then go right to see an birds eye view of the island. Now, you should see a
purple dot in the middle of the island. Click on it, and go to the clearing.
Enter the circus, and when you get the chance, say anything, the 2 people
fighting will come over to you. Ask how much you will be payed, then say that
you have a helmet. When hey ask you to show them it, GIVE the POT to either of
them. Then, after the cut-scene, you will be outside with 478 Peices o' eight.
Now you can buy some much-needed stuff! Now, go back to the right, and onto the
view of the island. To the left of the path your on, is a fork, click there.
Once you arrive, go through any of the paths, and you should see some yellow
flowers. PICK UP the YELLOW PETAL off them, then go back to the village. If you
click on the village itself, you will appear at the cliffside. Anyways, go past
the scumm bar, then TALK TO the guy on the street corner. Buy the 'map' off him
for 100 pieces o' eight. USE the MAP to find out they are actually a dance
lesson! But they will actually help. Then, go left and talk to the people here,
and then ask them about the guy across the stret. They will say that they sell
minutes, so say you will take them if they give you 2 pieces o' eight. You
should have 380 pieces o' eight now. Then, see the first door to the right?
OPEN it and go through into the vodoo ladies shop. PICK UP the CHICKEN from the
chest, then go to the right and TALK TO the vodoo lady. Talk about everything
and make her read your future. Once shes done, walk outside. Go through the
archway you see just above you. Then, enter the first building you see. Inside,
buy the shovel and the spade, to do this, pick the items, then talk to the
guy behind the counter. Ask him about them, then buy them. You will have enough
money. You should of 205 Pieces o' eight now. Exit the shop, and then go down
the alley way if you want, it doesnt really matter. It just helps the story
line. After going left, you appear at a big mansion. Once you reach the dogs
there, use the YELLOW PETAL with hte STEWED MEAT and give it to the dogs. After
the important notice that the dogs are asleep, enter the mansion.

Here, go through the first door you see. After the scene, you will need a file
so you can get the idol. Go to the prison, which is the building to the left of
the church. Talk to Otis, and Guybrush will complain and won't talk to him
because of his bad breath. Well, go to the shop, and buy some of the guy. Now
head back to the prison, and give Otis some breath mints. After this, ask him
if he has a file. He mentions that he does have a heavy carrot cake though.
He will give you it if you give him something to get rid of the rats. So GIVE
him the GOPHER REPELLENT and he will give you the CARROT CAKE. USE the CARROT
CAKE and you will then get the FILE. Perfect. Head back to the Mansion. Jump
through that hole in the wall, and wait. When Fester asks you to give him an
explanation, just say that the Governer gave it to you. She will come along and
say that this indeed is true. After the cut-scene, head outside. Well, try to
head outside, Fester will stop you. He will take you down next to the SCUMM bar
and try to drown you. Once your in the water, PICK UP the IDOL, then Guybrush
will pick up the SWORD (your last one was taken) and then head back onto the
dock. Elaine will come, after their talking, you will need to finish the three
trials. Head to the left, and onto the big map of Mêlée Island™.

Now, you will be able to see on the very far right of the island, a small house
so click on it to go there. You might be stopped at a bridge if you haven't
already passed here. Once the Troll stops you, just GIVE him the FISH and he
will let you continue. Once you arrive at the house, try to OPEN the door, and
the guy will come out and talk to you. He says he won't train you. Just keep on
saying that you do have what it takes, and he will eventually let you train,
for 30 pieces o' eight. Show him your sword (just use the conversation option)
and he will start to train with you. After fighting with THE MACHINE, you will
be taught about insults, the main point of sword fight. After learning two, he
suggests that you go out and learn some more insults and come backs. Go to the
map of Mêlée Island™ and then stand around, and wait for some pirates to come.
Walk into them, or past them or whatever, until you start a sword fight with
them. You won't be able to comeback to every single insult thrown at you, so
you have to learn them. Look at CHAPTER 6 of this guide for all the come backs
to insults. Once you have gotten enough and have beaten three pirates, go to
the town, and into the shop with that old guy in it. Make sure that the last
pirate you beat says that your good enough to fight the sword master though.
Some times you might just get lucky, I once beat a Pirate with just those two
starting insults. And sometimes, they won't know the comeback for an insult
your trying to learn the come back for. This can take awhile sometimes. And
losing is never bad. Once you have enough insults, which is just about all of
them, go to the shop, and ask for the Sword Master. He will say he will go and
ask her if you can see her, but he will only go once. He actually goes as many
times as you want him to do. Anyways, you have to start following him if you
want to find the Sword Master, so exit the shop, and start, well, following!
Once you arrive at the house, wait for the old man and the Sword masters
conversation to end, before approaching the Sword Master. You might want to
save your game first, because if you do you won't have to trek through the
forest again. Talk to her, and tell her that your here to kill her. Theres
nothing like being honest you know. Anyways, this battle is a bit different
then the rest. Basically, she will always insult you, but they are different.
So for example, she will ask if you have an escape boat ready instead of have
you stopped wearing diapers, so you just use the same comeback. Some of them
are obviousl, some aren't, so check the Sword Fighting insults chapter to find
them all out. Once you beat her, you recieve the 100% COTTON T-SHIRT! Once you
have this, exit the forest.

Head strait back into the fork, because you will still need a hidden treasure.
Once your inside the forest, USE that dance lesson paper, these actually are
the directions. You should go Top-Left, Left, Right, Left, Right, Top, Right
Left, Top and you should see some red flowers in front of you. If so, go to the
right (go anyways) and you should find a big sign, and a big X on the floor.
USE the SHOVEL with it, to get yourself, a T-SHIRT! Head back to the village.
Once you arrive, you are told that Elaine has been kidnapped by LeChuck, so
Guybrush decides to chase after him. You will need a crew and a ship though.
First off, head into the SCUMM bar picking up all of the mugs you can see. Then
go into the kitchen, and USE the MUG with the barrel. Then, take it all the way
to the prison. But if your mug turns into near death mug, make sure to USE it
with another MUG so you don't lose the grog. Once your inside the prison, USE
the MUG with the lock to set Otis free. But he won't help you and decides to
piss off instead, using the THREE HEADED MONKEY trick on you. Guybrush says
that you have to admit its a pretty good trick. And proves to be quite funny
later on. Anyways, once you leave the prison, your treated to a nice cut-scene.
Anyways, head back to the Sword Master now, and get her to join your crew. Now
head to that small house on that island by itself, and USE the RUBBER CHICKEN
on the cable. Then enter the house, remember to open the door though. Once
your inside, ask the guy to join your crew, then open that small little box.
Touch the little bird, then exit out and USE the RUBBER CHICKEN on the cable,
wow, it works both ways! Now its time to get us a ship.

Go over to the ship yard, which is the lights, and Stan will just bombard you
with his ships. Sheesh, calm down. Anyways, say you don't have much to spend,
and he will show you the Sea Monkey. You can't afford it though, say that you
wanted to get it on credit. He will say that if your employed, you might be
able to get one of the shop keeper, so head over to the village and his shop.
Ask him for some credit, and say that you do have a job. Once he goes to open
his safe, write down the combination, you will need it. Tell him you have what
ever job, it doesn't matter, then ask him to go and talk to the Sword Master.
Once he is gone, open the safe, and head back to Stans. Now, ask him about the
cheap boat again, then ask him about extras. Say you don't need it until he
starts repeating himself, then offer him 5000 pieces o' eight. He will refuse,
so say you don't need the boat. When he says wait, say, ok, then offer 5K again
and this time he will take it. Head back to the dock at the village, and then
say that you thought you would never see Otis again, and anything to Carla.


Wow, you finally finished PART ONE, which is most probably the longest one, it
depends really. Anyways, this part is really short, so it won't take very long.
Your crew though decides to get a tan, so you will have to get to Monkey Island
yourself. Whilst they lie on YOUR deck, you will need to get some items. You
will gain control in the captains cabin. OPEN the drawer, and LOOK AT it and
then PICK UP the DUSTY BOOK. Also PICK UP the INK And the FEATHER PEN. Now
head onto deck, and go up the rope ladder, and then PICK UP the JOLLY ROGER.
Now head back onto deck, and then go down the hatch which you can barely just
see behind the mast, I couldn't find this and it took me ages when I first
played. Go through the other door, and OPEN the CUPBOARD, and PICK UP some of
the CEREAL. OPEN the CEREAL to get the PRIZE, OPEN the PRIZE to get the SMALL
KEY. Now exit this room, and go down the next hatch. OPEN the chest, and LOOK
AT it to find some FINE WINE. To the left, PICK UP the GIANT PIECE OF ROPE, and
then PICK UP one of the Kegs to the left to get some GUN POWDER. Now, head back
to the Captains cabin, and USE the SMALL KEY with the cabinet. PICK UP the
CHEST then OPEN it, and LOOK AT it to get the PIECE OF PAPER and CINNAMON
STICKS. Then, go to the kitchen, and put everything you can into the big
CINNAMON STICKS, CEREAL, FEATHER PEN, INK can all be put into the pot. Once you
have put what you need into the pot (any items you need later cannot be put
into the cooking pot) a strange green smoke will come out after an explosion.
This is actually a spell and will make the ship set sail for Monkey Island™.
Once Guybrush awakes, click anyway to get him up, then PICK UP the POT from the
shelf to the left. Then, USE the MAP with the red hot flames, which are just
underneath the cooking pot. Get some more GUN POWDER from the KEGS, then go
onto the deck. USE the GIANT PIECE OF ROPE with the CANNON, and USE the GUN
POWDER with the NOZZLE. Stand next to the Cannon, and USE the POT. Guybrush
will then light the GIANT PIECE OF ROPE because you have the flaming mass, and
then climb into the cannon, to be blasted off to Monkey Island™.


Wow, your actually on the legendary Monkey Island™! A monkey will come along,
and then Herman Toothrot. After he goes, click anywhere to get up, and then
PICK UP the BANANA. Head to the jungle, then go up to the left a bit. You will
see some giant circle mountain, along it is a fort, go there. Here, PICK UP the
ROPE and the SPYGLASS, then PUSH the cannon and PICK UP the CANNON BALL and the
GUN POWDER. Herman might come, just say anything to him, and he will go away.
Now, leave the fort, go to the right, and go to the River Fork. PICK UP the
NOTEWORTHY ROCK, and you will also get a note. The people of Monkey Island™,
well, the cannibals leave messages to LeChuck and Herman, whilst they both
leave messages too, some can be funny as well. Anyways, USE the GUN POWDER with
the dam to the right, then USE the CANNON BALL and NOTEWORTHY ROCK to set it
alight, blow it up and refil the river. OR, you can USE the LENS off the
SPYGLASS, OPEN the SPYGLASS to get the LENS, then USE the LENS on the GUN
POWDER. Now, head to the pond that has just filled up, and PICK UP the ROPE.
Now head back to the river fork. Climb up those foot holds, and then PULL the
primitive art TWICE and then head up some more foot holds. PUSH the small rock
you see at the edge of this cliff, and it should fall down onto the art, and
then send the rock flying. With any luck, it SHOULD hit the Banana tree on the
beach, if not, then try pushing/pulling it some more, although im almost sure
from the default posistion, your better off using PULL twice, but make sure you
are standing to the left of it. You can also hit your ship for fun, so you can
have even more explosions. Head all the way back to the jungle, and go to the
crack found near the beach. USE both pieces of ROPE with the rocks to climb
down to the bottom, and PICK UP the OARS. Go back to the beach, and USE the
OARS with the boat. Don't forget to PICK UP all of the BANANAS from the banana
tree though. Now use the boat to travel to another part of the island, stop at
the beach, then go into the jungle, and head for the village. Go to the left,
and then PICK UP a banana. Go back to the right, and the Monkey Island™
cannibals will stop you. Say Look behind you! A three headed monkey, and they
will say that they won't fall for it. Soon enough though, a three headed monkey
comes up behind them and starts eating bananas! Wow, never expected that to
happen. Anyways, soon they will offer you to offer them something so they don't
lock you up. But you don't have anything, so wait to be locked up. PICK UP the
SKULL, then PICK UP the loose board to get out. You can't take the BANANA
PICKER because its too big. Anyways, after you escape, head back to the boat
and back to the starting beach. PICK UP the BANANAS if you didn't before. Now
head into the jungle and to where the monkey is. GIVE all of your BANANAS to
the monkey, and he will start to follow you. Head to the clearing past the pond
and then PULL the nose of that totem pole that is right near the gate. Try to
walk through the gate, but it will close, so the monkey will jump on keeping it
open for you! Now, go through, and walk to the Giant monkey head, and PICK UP
the WIMPY LITTLE IDOL. Also, if you look careful enough, you can see Sam and
Max as a little statue near the bottom of the screen, Sam and Max is another of
LucasArts adventure games. Anyways, go all the way back to the cannibals, and
offer them the WIMPY LITTLE IDOL. They will accept it, so go and PICK UP the
BANANA PICKER from the prison. Head outside, to find Herman talking to himself.
GIVE him the BANANA PICKER, and he will give you the MONKEY HEAD KEY. Now head
out of the village, and then back inside. Tell them that your looking for
LeChuck, and eventually they will start talking to each other. GIVE the LEAFLET
to them, and they will give you the HEAD OF THE NAVIGATOR and the NECKLACE ON
NAVIGATOR. Awww, the head likes you. Now head all the way back to the giant
monkey head, and USE the MONKEY HEAD KEY on the ear, and go inside.

Now that your inside the Giant Monkey Head, its time to find LeChucks ghost
ship. USE the HEAD OF THE NAVIGATOR and its face will spin arround, facing a
particular direction. Then you need to follow this direction, and keep on going
until eventually you find the ship. Also, to make his head move, just stop
moving and it should spin around. Once you see the ship, TALK TO the NAVIGATORS
HEAD and ask for the ask for the necklace, you might need to USE it first
though. He won't let you have it, so just threaten him, which is the third line
down. Eventually, he will give it to you, so USE it, and walk onto the ship.
After watching the ghosts dance, walk to the left into LeChucks cabin. Don't
get too close to LeChuck, instead, USE the MAGNETIC COMPASS with the KEY on the
wall to get the KEY. Go back out, and go down the hatch. Go into the hold, and
then PICK UP a GHOST FEATHER. Go back a room, and USE the GHOST FEATHER with
the sleeping ghost pirate to make him drop his JUG O' GROG. PICK UP the JUG O'
GROG, then go back into the hold, and USE the KEY with the hatch, and go down.
USE the JUG O' GROG with the bowl, and go to the right and PICK UP the GLOB OF
GREASE. Now go back onto the deck, and try to open the door to the right. It
will squeak, so USE the GLOB OF GREASE on it and go through. PICK UP the GHOST
TOOLS, and go back to the hold, and USE them on the glowing crate. LOOK AT the
glowing crate to get the VOODOO ROOT. Now, go back off the ship, and back to
the cannibal village, Guybrush does this automatically once you leave the area
in which you can still see the ghost ship. Soon, a three headed monkey will
come, so say anything to it, and get the MAGIC SELTZER BOTTLE from the cannibal
people. Walk away, and you will appear back at the ship, which has gone. Bob,
the ghost, will tell you everything, then your crew will come back, if you
didn't blow your ship up that is. If you did, Bob will offer you a ride back to
Mêlée Island™ so you can stop this wedding.


First off, head to the right, and then select the line which would make
Guybrush use the root beer to kill the ghost, then carry on, and then kill the
next ghost. Head into the church, and stop the wedding. After the cut-scene,
LeChuck will start to beat Guybrush up and punch him all over the island. Soon
you will land inside the grog vending machine, once LeChuck gets you out, PICK
UP the ROOT BEER and USE it on LeChuck to kill him, and get a instant replay!
WOW! CONGRATULATIONS for finishing The Secret of Monkey Island.
