Cluebox – Hints

This is a tutorial to open the cluebox.

Please don’t read this tutorial if you want to open box independently. Please read the last part of the tutorial if you want to place a gift into the box.

When you are stuck at a certain step, you can refer to the information below.

 

    

Version 1

When you look closer, you will see the starting information on the left side: there are 4 sliders. One is labeled with the word “Start”. The arrows will lead you to the 5 keys.

Version 2

When you look closer, you will see the starting information on the left side: there are 4 sliders labeled with: “Take”, “out”, “5 Keys” and “to start”

The 5 keys are on the lower surface of the box. They are blocked. It is not possible to rotate or pull them out individually. They must all be rotated by 90 degrees together.

The keys have different openings in their bits. There are keyholes on the sides of the box. The number of the semicircular recesses next to those keyholes is equal to the number of the openings in the bits.

When all keys are placed in the appropriate order, a hidden slider on the front of the box will be pushed out. Sometimes it is not necessary to put the fifth key into the keyhole, when the box is held horizontal.

The keys can now be removed, as they are not longer required. Now take a closer look at the hidden slider. The symbols on the slider appear on the cryptographic gearwheels.

The (red) arrow points to the first gearwheel. Besides the arrow (on the box) you see the same symbol (like a torn-off sheet of paper), which corresponds to the symbol on the slider.

This suggests, that those 2 symbols on the slider must be adjusted on the gearwheels. The last symbol on the slider corresponds to the one on the lower surface on the box. Now you know the third symbol.

Now you look for the puzzle piece, where the edge corresponds to the other side of the symbol (you find it on the upper surface). Follow this principle until all gearwheels are turned into the correct positions.

Now you can take out the sideward lock.

The large gearwheels are no longer blocked. You can see the digits In one of the small window besides the gearwheels(in the other side opposing letters). To assign the digits to the letters, you have to know the cryptography.

It is located on the movable object inside the eye.

Now follows the explanation of how to decode the first 4 symbols using the secret code. First you can see the symbols: △5=7. It is best to write them down.

On the gear wheel with the numbers you put the number △. This corresponds to the letter S, which you can see in the window on the opposite side. The digit 5 gives the letter T. At the end you should get the word “STAR”. This is the clue for the final step.

Now you should put the upper slider at the front of the box in the appropriate position. When you have decoded all 4 words, you will see those words

Version 1: “Star”, “Ring”, “Lamp” and “Magnet”

Version 2: “Nut” (female screw), “Key”, “Lamp” and “Gear”

As soon as the 4 sliders are placed according to these symbols, the central lock can be removed.

Now we have opened the box and reached the empty compartment.

As soon as the box is open, you will find a magnet inside, which you can stick at your refrigerator (as a reminder of your experience!). You will find an inscription on the magnet: “another step” or “Solve another riddle to join the club”. It means, that you can use the QR-code printed on the magnet to perpetuate your name on the roster of the famous cat saviors.

The game can be reset by reassembling the box.

Please close and fix the lid and put the lock back (the 4 sliders have to be in the correct position).

Then the symbols on the cryptographic gearwheels have to be recovered, so that the sideward lock can be put back.

The hidden slider is still pulled out.

To hide it, you have to put the keys in the relevant keyholes. Then you can push it back into the box.

Lastly, put the keys back into the holes on the lower surface and turn them by 90 degrees.

Now the game is reset.
