Stable Boy is a charming little retro throwback to the good old days of adventure gaming, featuring some great pixel art and humor that's more Monty Python than King's Quest. The controls are simple, as is the premise: get out there and explore, try out different endings, and try to help out villagers, and don't forget to chuckle at all the Ren Faire tropes.

I'm stuck. I've gotten endings #1 and #3 but can't find a connection for #2:

I've found the horse (#1 ending) and burned the witch (#3 ending). I've dug up the bones and freed the ghost. I have 4 gold coins and a poopy hand with a lasso, shovel, bow and cabbage in my stash. I can't dig up the "Looks like dry grass" and I think I've talked to everyone.

Huh, I've gotten #1 and #2 but not 3.

Stachey, it sounds like you need to get the second poopy hand. I can't recount the entire line of logic, but you need to get a stick and a string (the string comes from trading away your sword), then the Rod Master makes you a fishing pole; get a fish from the lake, give it to the cat, and now you have two poopy hands.

With that, the farmer will give you a sickle. That weapon will let you cut the hay and the cucumbers.

But all you REALLY need to do to get ending #2 is kill the horse :)

It seems that getting the bow and arrow locks you out of ending 2, but getting the fishing rod would keep you from getting certain items.

Is anyone else having trouble with the controls? Half the time I press A then click to use my weapon it doesn't work. If you have any advice as to what I can do to improve this? I've tried it on google chrome and firefox

I figured it was something like that, Emergent, but I can't figure out a way to

transform my bow into a fishing pole. I went to the wishing well that asks me if I want a bow or a fishing pole and I can't interact with it. The Pole Master isn't doing anything for me either.

I am just plain stuck. Got back to the village, got a poop, bones of Marcus, shovel, and a token. Am now stuck. How do I deliver the cucumbers or find the stick?

Any idea how to slay the dragon? I've gotten endings 1 and 3 and I currently have 4 gold coins, a skull, cabbage, a sickle, fishing pole, bow and arrow, shovel, and a lasso.

52/50 items is the max I've gotten so far

includes fire badge for lighting the fire in the cave and dragon's tooth

4 total endings max?

Dead horse, live horse, burn the witch, slay the dragon... anything else?

After I got ending 1 I couldn't get ending two, but it's kinda weird how you can get more items than the total.

Score: 0 (0 votes) Vote up Vote down Report this comment Reply

But can you get all the endings by hitting "Continue" or do you have to restart from the beginning? I don't see how, if you've already had your stick and string made into one of the items, that you can get the other.

There's only one ending totally incompatible with the others, but order matters to get them all:

Obviously the horse can't be both alive and dead, so you can only get one of those without having to start anew

As for the others,

Get the rod first instead of the bow. If you find everything there is to find, at some point you'll get a new stick and string so you can end up with both the rod and the bow. That way each of the other three endings becomes available.

Stachey - you HAVE to get the fishing pole first. If you get the bow, you can't get the pole.

Does anyone know where all 5 tokens are?

I dug one up, and I think I got another from delivering cucumbers.

And where is the musician's lute? I just got the horse and am at 86% completion. Haven't killed the dragon yet.

Whoops, found a token.

Dig up the revealing potion and use it on the 'Old Man'. It's Marcus' ghost. Give him his bones.

I know on a previous playthrough, I got another token, so I should know the locations of 4. But I can't find the two I didn't list.

collect 3 wolf pelts
dig up in the fairy-ring-ish formation
free marcus
collect hay for the farmer?
return the lute? - it's behind a bush ~NE of the refuge cave, don't know if it's always there or if it's triggered by something

Tough to remember which actions had which results specifically, but I think those are the ones...

Trade the

sack you find with the man talking about sacking for another token.

I need one more. 90% and all I have are the tokens I mentioned and my stash has

cabbage, shovel, pole, sickle, bow, and lasso.

Well that accounts for 52 items, but you also said 53. What's the 53rd item?

Score: 0 (0 votes) Vote up Vote down Report this comment Reply

Ending #4, 51 items. No burn.

Digging spoilers.

There's a token in the ring of bushes, or fairy ring, south of the walls.

The lute is behind a bush near that (probably appears as the story progresses.)

In the mud flats to the east, there's a little bump with the potion.

And of course the middle grave to the north has the bones.

There's a bug where if you die while killing an animal, then there's a live and dead animal there. Using that I was able to get a dead and live horse, 4 foxes and 5 wolves. I had a total of 55/50 items.

Ending 4 with 52/50 items :P If you kill an enemy at just the same time it kills you it will drop an item and respawn, allowing an extra. Still trying for ending 2 though!

Just won with ending 1 and 43 out of 50 items. This game badly needs a walkthrough, but the gameplay is so wrought with problems that making one would be an extremely difficult undertaking.

Fun little game, I also got >50 items and the 4 endings.

BTW there is 1 instance of "rating-r (red)" language after the #4 dragon ending.

@anna - loosing controls

You can loose targeting ability when you switch items in your stash or go between a cave and the world (and visa-versa).

To fix it just hit the key then click back in the game window. Warning where you click in the game window is where the character walks to so be careful.

For killing dragon:
- get 5 tokens (the fifth one): use shovel and dig upper left in the graveyard to get bones, and dig under the cave in dirt (located up right) to get revealing potion)
- take the scroll in the cave down left to get magic scroll, so you get fire scroll to take it to the wizard,
- you will now learn magic and now kill the dragon

I'm confused...

I think I have all 5 tokens and I went into the refuge cave ("cave down left") like plutko said but I don't see any scroll?
I've also got endings #1 & 3 if that matters.
