I'm in K2 and have done the Defend the Village Quest, but have not yet left the village. I want to do some more exploring. In the south there is some sort of ruin with a plate in the middle on which you usually have to drop a heavy stone in order to let something happen. But I just can't seem to find anything to drop on it. No dark grey stones on which you can let a quarry work. Not anything heavy. I can't believe it is there without a purpose, everything in this game has a purpose. Has anyone had the same? Or knows how to find a heavy stone or something?
I'm having problems on k1. I can't get a second rope. I keep cutting down vines, but I've only gotten one rope.
My liege! In K3 has anyone been able to access the area to the east of the knight's lair with the scholar and all the books? I finished the main part of the game, but I've been trying to get into that area to no avail.
Shoot, I totally forgot to include that bit in the walkthrough. My bad.
To get into that area
Just click on the scholar behind the gate. Keep clicking on him. A lot. Not open yet? Click more. It too me 144 clicks on him before he opened the gate.
This sounds really dumb but I in K1 I built the Archery and have >level 2 soldiers, I click employ and move them there and it doesn't work. Something so basic...help!
Thanks Mme, I'm going to try that right now. Great job on the walkthrough as well. I was browsing through it earlier, just to see if I had missed anything in the game and I marveled at the amount of time and effort that must've taken. Thanks again :)
I can not get the blacksmith to talk to me. I have bought 3 rings from the merchant I have 3 blacksmiths and have tried every one of them. I only had 2 before this quest. I built a 3rd one after I couln't get the first 2 to talk to me. any suggestions?
who needs to pick up the ring from the merchant? every one that I have pick it up including the my hero it just turns to a very reduced amount of coins
hey I found out my problem, I hadn't found my diamond yet just found it. lol
I am having the same problem as Tea - can't get a baker to talk to me and give me the recipe for the dragon's pie. I've built a second bakery, but no luck. Is this a glitch or am I just missing something? I really don't want to start over...
Dragon scales...I found one behind the locked gate in the dragon lair...I have not found a 2nd set and have been slaying the dragon for close t a week now. What am I missing? thx in advance
I am in kingdom 2- I have all my villager rescued except the one that is south of the castle near the entrance road. Villager 7 according to the walk-through. What dridge do you have to destroy to be able to walk through the water to save him? I can't find one, and the 3, I have built and destroyed did not work....UGH!!! I am frustrated here...
This is my second play-through and this time I can't unlock sunflowers for the life of me. Strange thing.
Debbie, did you get the blacksmith opened yet?
This might seem obvious but just in case... you know to use a craftsman or scholar to build the higher level structures and to click on the next level build tab?
Another "feature" or "glitch" on my second play through that I didn't have the first time...
Can be employed at the towers as long as they're not on horseback. I'm not sure if this is because I'd met a particular requirement for number of knights, buildings, or whatnots... or if it is a feature of completing the game... or simply a glitch. But like MmeT, when I first played, knights wouldn't work at towers either.... yet now they do.
I finshed the game and almost all of the side quests. But there's one thing I don't know what to do with. In K3 besides the black knight area in the north east is a gate behind wich sits a alcamist or someone. He's surounded by books and life potions and treasure. But I can't figure out how to open the gate. I've sent everyone up to the gate an no one even says anything out it. Its not listed as a goal. How do you open that gate?
to get to the marble where it says to blow up the bridge you have to walk into the water and follow it to the end you have to blow up two bridges to get to the marble. look at the walkthrough and click on the marbles and it will have a screenshot you can open up and see where the marble is.
I am stuck in K1... I dont know how to start the quest for the kings crown and I have no idea how to find the Mason scrolls to unlock the Masonry. HELP PLEASE!! Anyone have a screen shot of where the scrolls are? That would be most helpful!
Kingdom 3: Opening the Dark Alchemist's Locked Gate
You must simply click on him a LOT until he gets so annoyed that he finally leaves. For these purposes, clicking means holding the cursor over him until he's highlighted then left clicking, then moving the cursor off of him, clicking elsewhere, then returning the cursor over the alchemist and clicking him again.
You'll know you're doing it correctly when you get messages from him along the lines of "Leave me alone, I'm busy here."
You do not unlock the masonry until Kingdom 2.
Since not all quests have to be completed in a particular order, and several are optional, just go about finishing as many quests as you can. Often one quest will pop up after you've built a certain number of buildings or have a certain population or visited a particular area.
Hi there i cant get the recipe for the love potion. I have 2 alchemists and i cant get them to talk to me to give me the list of items. Am i missing something???
Hi there i cant get the recipe for the love potion. I have 2 alchemists and i cant get them to give me the list.....Am i missing something, or is this a glitch?
I cannot find the kings crown in kingdom 1. I can't trap the giant either. Is this what I need to do to get the crown....HELP!!!
Is it possible to have more than 50 people in a kingdom? If so, how?
Me again, no one responded to my first post. I am stuck in K1 at the Boar's Quest. I know I need an archer. I built the archery and have +2 level soldiers. I have tried moving them to the archery and employing them at the archery but they won't be employed. What am I missing? Please help, I want to keep playing.
In Kingdom 1 I was stuck on the drawbridge and had to start the quest again because the wheel had disappeared. I learned that you have to get the 4th peg (retrieved by the giant near the boar forest) last or else the wheel disappears. Hope this helps someone.
Thanks for that pointer, Dee!
Once you have built the archery, you need to wait until a level 2 soldier is has enough experience to level up. At that time, you can choose to upgrade to level 3 -OR- to make them an archer. That is the only time you can make an archer.
If you are impatient, find a level 2 soldier who has the most experience toward the next level, then put them to work hunting animals and reading knowledge tombs... before you know it, they'll be ready.
Once you have upgraded a level 2 soldier into an archer, you can then employ them at the archery so they will continue to gain experience. Archers cannot be employed at towers (unless there is a secret yet-to-be-discovered trick to doing it).
Hope that helped!
OK got it from another website. I needed to upgrade the soldier first.
Please, I cannot pass the door next Black Knights, where a scholar is trapped. If there is a key, I acnnot found it. Any idea? Thanks
See my spoiler a few posts up about Opening the Dark Alchemist's Locked Gate in Kingdom 3.
Cathy - I found out it was a glitch and had to start over.
I had a baker and alchemist employed before going near the dragon, and it worked.
Kingdom 1 - How do you destroy bridges. I cannot get past them to collect the last marble? I just cannot figure this one out. I clicked on the bridge but there isn't a "bomb" to destroy the bridge. Please post me a clue, thanks :D
I'm in Kingdom II and can't get back to Kingdom I because the map button is greyed out. Any ideas?
How do you unlock the last building and upgrade?
The ones with the ? mark.
ok I cant get the level 4 craftmen to cut the tree down he keep saying that the axe is not sharp. I have bought the upgrade for the weapons and still nothing, I have employeed the blacksmith and I have weapons and armory standing on the side now what????????/
How do you trigger the Bard appearing in the third kingdom? I have done everything except storming the tower and he never showed. The red dragon, however, did appear without the bard showing up and since I didn't know there was a quest related to it, I let the army kill it. What now? Anyway to get the bard to show up now?
So, the Brad finally showed up in Kingdom three for me. I am now doing the last Village Defense Quest and seem to have hit a bug. I finished six round of enemies and then the seventh didn't come and the time reset for the next batch. Well, I got the message that this was the last groupd to defeat and then they never came. So, I am sitting and hoping that after so much time that the quest will automatically think I defeated group 8 like it thinks I defeated group 7. Don't really have much hope, though, so I am wondering if anyone else has encountered this problem and if there is a solution on how to trigger the last attack. I'd hate to have to replay the entire quest again, especially not knowing if it will work again.
I figured out the issue in the last Village Defense quest, so for anyone else that had the issue that I did, here is why. Attacks 7 and 8 are dragons. For me, they never left the edge of the screen, so there was never an actual attack on my town. I happened to glimpse one of the dragons when panning the screen like 15 minutes after the 8th attack was supposed to start and sure enough there was a second one at the top of the screen. So, just move your army to each dragon and kill them and the quest will finish the way it is supposed to.
In one moment, a bomb needed for mining a bridge just disappears and it's impossible to mine the bridge, and therefore I can't finish the quest ''Lost Marbles'' kingdom1 or to free the peasant in kingdom2.
Hi, I'm in K3. I have entered the strong hold with the knights (one on horseback) and defeated them. There are three cages with people in them. However, they do not light up, no craftman can open them and my quest list still says find the black knights stronghold. Wasn't this the strong hold? Any ideas what I have done wrong? Also I got into the locked area next to it and leveled up one of my knights to a horse with the books. Any help will be greatful.
The reasons you wouldn't be able to blow up a bridge include:
* A working civilian (such as a tavern keeper or a baker) has crossed the bridge to get resources to sell or use at their shop; in this case, you cannot destroy the bridge until they have either crossed back to their building of employment or they become unemployed.
* A soldier has crossed a bridge to fight an enemy; in this case, you cannot destroy the bridge until they have returned back to their tower or training camp.
* Any employed civilian or employed soldier has crossed the bridge to run an errand that you sent them on (to pick up an item, etc); in this case, you cannot destroy the bridge until they have returned back to the side of the bridge in which they are employed.
* An animal is standing on the bridge; in this case, you must kill the animal or otherwise chase them off the bridge.
* An enemy or other NPC (non-player controlled character, as shown by a yellow highlight circle) is on the bridge or about to use the bridge (either to exit or enter the seen); in this case, you have the wait until that person is gone to destroy the bridge.
* Sometimes, if a piece of gold, food, or other item is on the bridge, that would make it impermeable to the bomb.
* If you would be unable to rebuild the bridge as needed for completion of a required quest; make sure you have an upgraded lumber mill and, perhaps, a masonry if the case may be.
It can be frustrating with animals like bunnies or pieces of food or animal hides... they sometimes blend into the color of the bridge and you won't know they're there. Time to pixel hunt in that case.
I experienced that same glitch with the triggering of the black knight hideout quest. Hopefully you saved your game before you started that quest. If there is another way to fix it besides re-doing it, I haven't found it yet... you can try checking on sandlot games' forums, too.
I went back to a saved game prior to starting the quest... I was careful on how I gathered the clues at the outpost and I waited to specifically be told to find the black knight hideout before I began mining the stone wall of their stronghold.
Next, I brought a big army with plenty of health potions and made sure that my hero did not die during the fighting...
It worked the second time... the only thing I am sure I did differently the second time is I didn't let my hero die. So, maybe there is a glitch in the quest with that?
HELP. I am doing kiingdom 3 the blight qwest.
I am not getting any frogs. I have got 1 frog in 4 hours. I have tried logging, reloading, changing kingdoms. Al to no avail.
Yes I am in the river.
The wheel to the drawbridge in Kingdom 1 disapeared. I have tried dragging craftsmen 2-4 to where it used to be, and it doesnt work. I dont want to start all over again, are there any other things I could do? HELP!
i can not unlock my masonry
HELP PLEASE!!!!!!!! Kingdom 2
I am on the Magic curse quest that requires me to have a wizard.. I already read the spioler above that was added about getting a wizard..But when I travel back to K1 the king isnt playing chess with anyone, he wont even talk to me. I build an alchemist shop plus employed a scholar there in K1 and K2.... But I still cant find the wizard hat in K1 or trigger the chess game between the king and the wizard... Any suggestions?
Thank you Amy
Marina, I also had a problem with bridge destruction. I'd built two bridges that were blocking me from getting to the last marble. One of the bridges showed the little bomb icon but the other didn't. I finally realized that the one I couldn't destroy had to rabbits standing there. As soon as I had a soldier kill the rabbits who had hopped onto said bridge and picked up the meat, I was able to destroy the bridge. Hope this helps!
Okay I'm trying to remember how to get the Hatchery...I saved over the wrong game and had to start over. Help!!!
if you pick up the dragon scales in k2 early is there anyway to get more scales? i cant finish merchant or get the ring.
It is NOT necessary let the green giant kill somebody in K2 as stated in the walkthrough. Reducing the giant's own health to nothing is sufficient to trigger the next stage.
Help help! I am in the third Kingdom and am stuck on the Ancient tower. I have all the stone pieces, all of the bricks, and the scrying stone, but I cannot get anyone to rebuild the tower! I have brought over craftsmen, scholars, wizards, the mason... nothing works. What am I missing??
How do I stop my villagers from being cursed?
You unlock the hatchery by...
having four library's (staffed with at least one scholar) in a single kingdom
If you picked up the dragon scales early, you can get more by killing more dragons. They drop a scale about 15% of the time. It might be a bit quicker to go back to a saved game, if you've been saving frequently that is.
Make sure the quest was triggered correctly (hopefully you have a saved game to go back to). If you have brought all the required pieces to the tower -and- you have removed all the blight in the area, the tower will "want to speak with you" and it will ask if you want to rebuild it.
There is a travel quest associated with the tower in Kingdom 3... check the walkthrough. Sometime immediately before or immediately after rebuilding the tower you'll have to travel to another place....
J R Catman,
There's no way to stop villagers from getting cursed... just like earthquakes, fires, and invasions... cursings just happen.
On the other hand, in Kingdom 2 there is a quest associated with the curse... during that quest, villagers will become cursed at a much higher rate. Complete the quest (see the walkthrough) and you'll slow down the rate of cursed villagers.
I got the speech bubble, and then went to K2 to get the scrying stone... but nothing is triggering the build... I don't know about a travel quest other than going to K2 for the stone... is there another one?
I am stuck on K2. I need to finish the love potion, but I already picked all the carrots. Will they ever grow back? I have been looking for a couple of days now and still don't see any. I have also been dropping mystery seeds all over hoping to get a carrot, but so far, nothing. Is there anything I can do?
HELP!!!!!! I'm having problems on kingdom 1!!! I can't seem to get to the other side to disarm the last catupult.... I tried to build a wooden bridge but it wont work!!! I was thinking maybe the stone bridge but I cant seem to unlock it because it says I have to purchase the design but from where??? Because I cant reach the other side, I can't get the last piece of the stone for the drawbridge as well. Please help!!! I have gotten the kings crown, filled the castles gold, and basically every task but 3...... please help!!!
I'm sorry, I based my advice on memory... I finished the game a couple weeks ago... but looking at the walkthrough, the next quest (where you travel to another place) comes after you have fully rebuilt the tower.
MmeTurbulence's Walkthrough at the top of this page explains everything you should have and do to rebuild the tower. If you've checked everything off your list (maybe you're missing something?) and still nothing happens, then you may have to go back to a save point and try again.
I know how you feel... I'm on a replay of the game and ended up stuck on the rebuilding of the ancient garden in K2. No matter what I do, I can't seem to get that second tower built. So, despite how good the other games in the Westward series, this one seems to have a big glitch with the quests. I hope Sandlot will come out with an update for this problem.
can't get the hatchery got 4 library's and one scholar in k3 also in k2 got the glass thing don't know what to do next as no dig? thanks to all for your help :-)
How long does it take a dragon to hatch? I have all the trophies except the ones you need a dragon for. Have had an egg in an employed hatchery for AGES.
I am stuck on Kingdom 1. The only tasks I have left is to get the last marble and trap the barbarian and retrieve the kings crown. How do I trap the barbarian... I tried making them follow me to it, but i kill them before we make it to the trap. Is this the right way to progress to Kingdom 2? Please help... Spoilers Okay
Like a couple of others before me, I've done everything in Kingdom 1 (except what I can't do until after I leave and come back), but the Royal Letter quest won't start. I completed all the other quests...any suggestions before I just give up?
I don't know why sometimes my citizens including hero can't build and repair things. Also when this happens I can't upgrade my citizens.
I'm having the same problem someone else mentioned. I'm on level three and there are no frogs to be found. I've looked all over the river, and there are no ponds. Any suggestions?
In kingdom 2 I can't find any carrots to complete the love potion quest anyone know where I can find them I have 1 of 4. Also How do you open the knights gate? Thanks
PlayPosie the frogs I found were way up at the top of the river, one was just outside the end ofscreen but the archer could still kill and get the legs, after getting 2 there a frog would appear just lower down where it looks like a waterfall, hope that help, I am still waiting to find out how you get the hatchery, 4 librarys in k3 didn't work!Plus in k2 I did the ruins the one where you light two towers to burn the vines etc, anyway a round glass thing appeared on a hill only I don't know where it goes as it doesn't seem to go on the ruins? thanks for you help.
on the investigate the revealed castle all towers are lit only when put hero on main tower nothing happens what have I done wrong ? did put wizard to clean up area but after it said that! help please? thanks again...
Hope your not all asleep on this game, but did notice that my time is not what shows so I guess this site is usa time? but hope that your not giving up on us anyways not meaning the time but the game with so many things going wrong with it. cheers and thanks to all for your dedicated help with us.cheers and thanks.
Help! I can't find the missing masonry scrolls so that I can unlock the masonry to build the east tower, etc. All I have left in K1 is to protect the kingdom and the rest of the marble quest, which I can't complete until I get to K2. I tried going to the map to get to K2 but it's greyed out. I'm stuck! What do I do?
ok got it you don't go through the tower it's the cave where the wizard was, guess I was tired. and any help on getting the hatchery would be great. thanks
AlDunphy if I understand you correctly you have to build 3 towers and the one you are stuck on is the 2nd? if so the tower goes just above the (chest in the river) on the stone land. I m ade the mistake thinking I needed a stone bridge but you don't if you read back.
Chezza: I can't build any towers because I can't get unlock the Masonry. It says I need to find the missing masonry scrolls, but I can't figure out where those are.
Danni: To trap the barbarian, you don't fight them. You start to, but then walk away right away to get him to follow you. Basically, walk INTO the trap and then walk out. When you do that, he'll follow you into the trap, at which point the trap will shut on him.
To save my life, I can't get the baker to talk to me. I have been trying for 2 weeks, picked up every purple plant there was by anyone who would pick it up. HELP!!!
Hi!!! ME AGAIN!!! I have yet to recieve a response from my last comment. I figured it out! Now, I'm stuck on K2 How exactlt doI get in the doors with the 2 dragon scales???? DO I get a key from somewhere?
The duchess' suitor will give you a key... so when she asks for a boyfriend (after you have upgraded her kingdom), bring her a...
knight on horseback (a level 3 knight).
If you're in a hurry for that, save all the knowledge tombs for one soldier, build the armory in time for the level up from level 3, and complete the duchess's other requests for upgrading her kingdom.
Her suitor will want to please her, so he'll send you on a task to kill the red dragon (hey! why is he sending YOU to do HIS work?) Anyhow, that's when you'll be able to get behind those doors... not sooner.
Which quest are you trying to complete?
For all the quests, though, if they are working properly, all you need to do to "talk to" a character is to click on them when you're given the signal "talk to so-and-so". You don't have to bring your hero there unless it's to pick up an item.
I can't get the sword out of the stone it keeps telling me that a king needs to pull the sword out I can't control the king help tried everyone in k1 and keep getting the same response. Help
Hello! I'm in K2 and completed all quests except Defend the Village(s). I am terrible at these! Any hints on these side quests? Do I have to complete them all to gain access to K3? The map shows K3 still locked. Cheers!
I am only on K1 and can't do anything. When I collect stone, so that I can build the barracks, I only get like 65 stone, I only have the one little pile by the ale wagon. After reading other posts, it looks like I am supposed to have 3 piles. I have tried starting over from scratch with the same hero, and also with the other hero, and nothing works, still only one pile. I have tried mining all the little rocks and stuff but won't let me. what am I supposed to do?
Even though I have 25 citizens, in kingdom 3, I can't seem to check off the 20 citizen or more requirement. Too, since I have reached 50 total people, I can' have any more citizens move in.... what do I do?
Which quest are you trying to complete?
For all the quests, though, if they are working properly, all you need to do to "talk to" a character is to click on them when you're given the signal "talk to so-and-so". You don't have to bring your hero there unless it's to pick up an item.
I'm trying to complete the dragon quest. I have everything else except for the last tiara and the last rescue, which are behind the dragon! I've built multiple bakers and clicked on every one of them, too!
I have seen in screenshots where you have built things like gold mines or stone quarries on rough terrain... like the area around the stone tower in Kingdom 3. How do you do that? I have tried finding that perfect spot, and putting it exactly where I can see you have put it in the screenshots... but to no avail. Help please
Unless your game is horribly broken, I think you may be overlooking the two big stones directly to the right of the ale cart. If they are not there, maybe you need to redownload the game. There shouldn't be three, though, just the two.
Later in the game, in Kingdown 3, you'll acquire blight scrolls. A wizard can use the blight scrolls to clear up bad terrain to allow for building.
K1 Drawbridge Help Please-I got to the drawbridge but had no pegs to collect (except for the last one) I was wondering if I had picked them up earlier thinking they were logs so I started the game over, still the pegs are not there. Is this a glitch or am I missing something?
ok so i need some help. I am on k3 i have finished almost all of the quests (except the tower) and i cant figure out how to get into the top left corner screen. the one with the locked door with treasure chests and a blue crystal... it has a slope on the ground so i cant build a bridge there and the only place i can get into the water is at the bottom of the giant's area. (where i found my frogs at the beginning) and since i cant climb down a waterfall... i cant get over to that area.. help please. o clarification: the section i am trying to get into is across from the destroyed forest (which i fixed)someone please help. i have been stuck on this kingdom for a few days now. thanks
If I remember correctly in order to get the scrolls down you need to get magic beans and put them at the base of the towers. If you are stuck in kingdom 1: You have to go to kingdom 2 and get the stone bridge before you can build it in kingdom one. If you are having trouble getting the marble that is in the water, you need to have your hero or a civilian all the way at the top where the entrance to kingdom 2 is, then destroy the bridges you built so the character can walk down to get the stone ruins and the marble, then bring him back and rebuild the bridges. Where I have completed the game, I am just finishing up some quests, and I am stuck on getting dragon scales, I accidentally picked them up before the merchant asked for it. I have killed a bunch of dragons, but still no scale.
Kingdom 2 I cannot find the 2 dragon scales, I even went back on my load before I took him out and I dont see the scales. Does any one have a picture of them?
I'm stuck in K2. Says Sword and Arrows quest is completed, but the Giant Attack didn't start. Now I can't move on to K3 and there are no quests to do. How do move on to K3? Help!
Wondering if I have put myself into a no win situation here...I had someone other than the hero pick up the diamond ring in Kingdom 2. The ring seems to have disappeared. Anyone know what I can do?
ok so I'm stuck in K3. I can't get the Duke to come out. I've cleared everything, I've even put a soldier in front of every cave but he still won't come out. I don't even know which cave he's in. What do I have to do to get him to come out?
Rowan, I used a villager to pick up the ring and carried it to the Countess, and it worked. If I were you, I would drag every villager to her.
I am using anonymous because I couldn't get the login to work.
I have done everything possible in Kingdom 1 except for finding four more marbles, which cannot be gotten until I cross the Ancient Drawbridge; rebuilding statue, finding wizard's hat, and the purple stones. My problem is that after crossing bridge, restoring fishing village, damming the river, and building the stone bridge. I go to the red arrow with Patsy, but the map does not activate and I cannot go back to Kingdom 1. If I deliver the letter to the Countess, she has much for me to do, but still no map is available. The only problem I have is in Kingdom 1 where my population count in upper right is wrong. When I came out of the Heirloom Quest, I had lost some of my soldiers and gained some others. When I left and went back to the kingdom, the stats in the upper right corner showed I had 8soldier but room for 10. I had to build another barrack to bring my total to 10, but then it shows room for 12. No other soldiers appear and if I demolish the barrack, then it tells me 2 of my soldiers are homeless. I restore the barrack and now the stats in upper right reads 20/20, 10/12, 30/32. My actual count is 20 villagers and 10 soldiers. Where do I go from here to complete my quests and move on to Kingdom 2?
You just take your hero to the knight or both the hero and the character that collected the ring. That should work.
In your situation, I would just keep a couple older save files of the game, just in case. Then I'd move on and see what happens, saving often (in separate slots) to have a place to go back should there be something unexpected.
Of course, old school gamers would just take note and start right back at the beginning again.
To tell the truth, I'm on my third play-through. I successfully finished the first time yet didn't earn all trophies and then I got stuck the second time because I missed a step, or hit a glitch (most likely missed a step), while trying to rebuild the ancient gardens.
Oh and check the walkthrough... it's very helpful in figuring out what to do next.
Did you not answer me or am I too pissed cuz of that Duke that I missed your answer? :P
What you said about the saves...was that for me?
If not...HOW, for crying out loud, how do I get the Duke to come out of the cave he's in?
P.S: I'm not usually mental like that but I hit a glitch in all westward games and I was kinda hoping to at least finish this one ^_
I finished sword and arrows quest (where I have to build up an army), but even though it says the giant attack is supposed to start as soon as that's done, nothing happened. Now I'm stuck and can't go anywhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't see any beanstalks or giants attacking. :(
In Kingdom 3, you need to remove the obstruction from several caves until you find the one the duke is hiding in. The walkthrough explains it in more detail, too.
Sandlot games has a forums, also, that can help with all the westward games including if you think you've found a bug in the design.
Hope that helped.
This is the only one that I've found so many glitches on... I wonder if it's more to do with Windows 7 than anything else?
Some people were having trouble with this one... this is what worked for me
Only a King Can Pull the Sword from the Stone?
Find a gold crown (you may have to defeat several barbarians to get one) and have a soldier or knight pick it up to wear it... then go pull the sword out.
It might also work with a higher level character.
Hello everyone can someone help me, I am already almost done with all the quests in K2, I am finished with all the quests in K1 except for lost marbles. my last marble is in the corner in the river but I have built a bridge that is blocking my character from walking down into the river to get it. There is no bomb to blow up the bridge, I am not sure if this is a glitch or I have done something wrong. Please someone tell me how to blow up the bridge so I can claim the last marble.
@Lori thank you thank you!
