This page is a complete list of every Gold Hoarder riddle clue that I know about.
The list is still far from complete, but growing all the time.
A Gold Hoarder riddle sheet contains three types of clue, which are revealed one by one, as you solve them:
The first clue tells you which island to head to.
As soon as you step foot onto the island, the second clue will be revealed.
Usually, next, there are a couple of "waypoint" clues.
These are landmarks that you need to find and, once there, perform some action. These include:
- Playing a snatch of music on one your instruments.
- Holding up the riddle sheet to read it.
- Holding up the lit lamp. Hold it high by pressing the "block" button.
For the final clue, you will also need to find a landmark. Once there, get out your compass, and hold it high
(using the "block" button), and walk forward. The compass will bob with each step so you can count them. Then,
take out your shovel and dig!
May clues contain a phrase that indicate that the landmark is underground, that is, in a cave. These phrases
vary, depending on the action you must take when you get there. For example:
hidden from sun's rays
in (or through) the gloom
There's more to this map than meets the eye, read it at landmark where there is no sky
where it’s dark
where there is no sky
Click on an island name, below, to open the list of key phrases indicating landmarks on the
island. These key phrases will be woven into clues, often in the form of rhyming couplets.
Click on the phrase itself to see a map and screenshot. Click on these for a bigger view.
The screenshots are designed to show the landmark at its best. For most landmarks, especially
larger ones, you will have to move closer than the point from which the screenshot was taken.
