Hints have made their way into the Monkey Island series over the years, and the special edition remasters of the first two games featured a comprehensive hint system to help players figure out exactly what to do when they get stuck. Return to Monkey Island refines this system with a clue book, and both newcomers and veterans alike will want to get their hands on it, just in case. Here’s how.

Where to get the clue book in Return to Monkey Island?
The clue book is easy to get; you just have to know who to ask. When you first take control of Guybrush Threepwood on Melee Island, your goal is to board LeChuck’s ship. Of course, this requires some puzzles, but once you’re denied, some of the shops in town will open. Go to Low Street and enter the voodoo shop on the right. Speak to the Voodoo Lady inside and after a brief reunion with Guybrush, she will hand you the clue book. This is permanently in your inventory, just like the to-do list.

The first few clues will be vague, but if you really need help you can ask for more until the book tells you the exact strategy for the current puzzle. Just note that these hints are based on the actions you’ve already taken. For example, it doesn’t tell you how to pick the lock in the Pirate Museum until you examine it yourself. If you feel like you’ve tried everything but are stuck, the clue book will always tell you what to do next.
