This walkthrough refers to the VGA version released by Sierra in 1991. It's mostly identical in plot and puzzles to the EGA original, but there are some differences about the limits in the casino and the prices of items and such. In short, it should be usable, but it's not gospel (especially when it comes to "For Your Amusement"s).

Press Ctrl-Alt-X to bypass the age test.

Click here to jump down to answers to the copy protection questions in the VGA version, if (like me) you find it really annoying to have to go look them up in all the game box "extras". (You do have them, don't you? 'Course you do. If not, Al Lowe has them up on his site here external link.)

Welcome to Lost Wages

Go inside Lefty's. Sit on the empty stool and order whiskey. Go into the back room. Give the whiskey to the drunk and you will get a remote control. Get the rose from the table. Go into the bathroom. Urinate in the toilet, but don't flush. Examine the sink. Get the ring. Read the wall until you get the password ("Ken sent me"). Go back out to the main room and knock on the red Naugahyde door. Give the pimp the password. Use the remote control to change channels until the pimp gets interested in the TV. Go upstairs. Get the box of candy from the table. Go out the window. Look at the dark window to the right. Climb down (well, ok, fall down). Search the dumpster twice and you will find a hammer. Go back to the front of the bar and hail a taxi. Go to the casino.

For Your Amusement:
Hang around in front of Lefty's for a little while.
Examine the jukebox. Click the hand on it.
Examine the ceiling fan. Click the hand on it.
Have a few drinks, then get up and walk around.
Talk to the guy on the stool to your left.
Walk into the drunk's crotch.
Flush the toilet. (save first)
In the pimp's room, click the hand and zipper on the back of the moose.
Click the hand on the dark window.
Give the cabbie the remote control.


Play either slots or blackjack until you have at least $400 ($250 is the max in the EGA game). When finished, head north. Examine the ashtray and you will find a disco membership card. Leave the casino. Buy an apple from the man in the barrel who approaches you. Hail a taxi and go to the convenience store. Go inside and buy a box of wine, a magazine, and condoms. Read the magazine. Leave the store. Give the box of wine to the wino and he will give you a knife.

Go east to the disco. Show the card to the bouncer and go in. Sit with the blonde woman. Look at her twice. Talk to her until you ask her to dance. Sit down again and look at Fawn. Give her the rose, candy, and ring. Give her the money she asks for. Leave the disco and hail a taxi. Go to the wedding chapel. Go into the chapel and get married to Fawn. Go west to the casino and go up to the 4th floor. Enter the honeymoon suite. Turn on the radio. Try to make your moves on Fawn, but it seems she's just not in the mood. Note the Ajax Liquor number you hear in the radio commercial: 555-8039. Go to the convenience store and use the phone to call Ajax Liquor. Return to the honeymoon suite and pour the wine for Fawn, then have a little fun (and I do mean a little). After Fawn leaves, use the knife to cut the ribbon. Take the ribbon after you get dressed.

For Your Amusement:
Examine the dancing girls in the casino cabaret.
Look at a candle on a cabaret table.
Catch the comedian in the cabaret (you may have to leave and re-enter several times) and sit at the table at bottom right.
Smell/taste the breath-spray display in the convenience store.

Leave the convenience store without paying. (save first)
Dial 555-6969 on the pay phone outside the convenience store and answer the questions. Leave the screen and return, and answer the phone.
Dial 209-683-6858 or 209-683-8989 (Sierra) on the pay phone.
Use the condom, magazine, watch, apple, rose, chocolates, knife, and wallet on the bouncer.

Look at everyone in the disco.

Look at the various fish in the disco aquarium.
Walk in front of the flasher outside the chapel. Talk to him (them?).
Drink the wine after Fawn leaves.


Go downstairs and play in the casino again to get $100 or so. Leave the casino. Hail a taxi and go to Lefty's. Go upstairs to the hooker. Undress by clicking the hand on yourself. Wear the condom and have sex with the hooker. After you get dressed, click the hand on yourself again to remove the condom. Go out the window. Tie the ribbon to yourself, then to the railing. (Finding the right spot so that you don't just untie the ribbon again can be tricky. Try the bottom right corner of the railing.) Click the hand on the bottle of pills in the other window. Break the window with the hammer and get the bottle. Gee, Spanish Fly! Go back to the railing, untie yourself, then go down and out (either through the window, or the shortcut into the dumpster).

Hail a cab and go back to the casino. Go up to the top floor. Talk to Faith. Give her the Spanish Fly. Click the hand on Faith's podium and go up the elevator to the penthouse suite. Go east into the bedroom and open the closet. Click the mouth on the blowup doll. Click the zipper on it twice. Follow it out to the deck. Look at Eve. Talk to her twice. Take off your clothes and get in the hot tub. Turn off the bubbles. Give her the apple.

For Your Amusement:
Have sex with the hooker without putting a condom on first.
(save first)
Don't remove the condom after having sex with the hooker.
(save first)
Swallow the Spanish Fly. (save first)
Look at the diamond-shaped picture over the bed in the penthouse.
Stick around to watch the very end of the credits.

For Your Amusement at various times:

Walk into an alley. (save first)
In the cab, click the hand on yourself and talk to yourself.
Get out of the cab without paying. (save first)
Click the zipper on yourself.
