    What, no magic word?

    • say "XYZZY"

    Update: The definitive guide to pronouncing 'XYZZY', 'plugh' and 'plover'.


    The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

      Don't forget plugh

        plove

        edit: re plove vs plover. The dictionary worked via the first 5 characters of the word. So it always was plove to me even though it was the "plover's egg" room.

      What, no magic word?

      Poof! A new option appears before you.

    If I recall Infocom's Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy correctly, the required action is

    • open eyes

    Update: seems I have confused it with another of these text adventures, as the command in the hitchhiker is turn on light. I played (too) many these times...

      Personally, i was satisfied with light torch, but, it's a choice as good as any. Added.

      Update: Changed to "open eyes" based on pm.
