   Not all puzzles are solved in this text. I've only included the ones
I have had success with. Currently I'm still struggling with a few of the
problems. I'll tell you what I know about them towards the end.

  If you can add any solutions I encourage you to do so. If you would like
you can send your solutions to me and I'll roll them into this text giving
you credit if you wish.

  We make no guarantees as to the accuracy of these solutions. While I've
tried to make this text as accurate as possible I cannot guarantee that it
is 100 percent correct.

  Also note that these solution have not been optimized. The may be MUCH
better ways to solve them.
 
  The latest version of this file can be found on the 'BioHazard' BBS, see
our ad on the last page for the phone numbers.

  I also want to thank Trilobyte and Virgin. T7G is one awesome game. I
can hardly wait for whatever comes next!!!!!!!!!!

  We want to wish you the BEST OF LUCK with your gaming!

Telescope in the Library:

       OBJECTIVE: Spell out the sentence by clicking on the letters. After
                  selecting a letter the next one selected MUST be
                  connected to the last via a canal on the map of mars.





































       Click on the Letters starting with the T at the bottom to spell:

                        THERE IS NO POSSIBLE WAY

Spiders on the Star:

      OBJECTIVE: Cover all the purple circles around the edge of the star
                 with spiders. NOTE: The puzzle is won when all but one
                 circles have been covered with a spider. The spiders
                 will move alone one of the lines from the starting
                 circle to the ending circle.

         OR

      1.) Click any purple circle to start.
      2.) Click on either purple circle connected via the lines to the
          one from step 1 to have the spider move to there.

      3.) Pick a purple circle so that after the spider moves he will
          be on the circle from step #1 above.
      4.) Click on the circle from step #1 above to have the spider move
          to it.

      5.) Pick a purple circle so that after the spider moves he will
          be on the circle from step #3 above.
      4.) Click on the circle from step #3 above to have the spider move
          to it.

      Continue this way around the star, picking a spot so that the spider
      can move to the place you CREATED the last spider on.

Skulls and Headstones in my cake:

  OBJECTIVE: All 6 guest's need to receive an equal share of cake. The
             problem is that the pieces given to each guest must touch
             on a side. The final shape of the pieces for each guest
             doesn't matter.

  The S's represent sections with a SKULL, the H's sections with a Headstone.
  The section without an H or S are just icing.





























  Solution:


  Click on all 5 pieces with the number 1. After they fly from the cake
  click on all 2's, then 3's, 4's, 5's and finally 6's. All 6 guests
  received 5 pieces total consisting of 2 skulls, 2 headstones and 1 icing.

Eight queens that do NOT get along:
    
  OBJECTIVE: Position eight queens on the board so that no queen can capture
             another queen. NOTE: Queens can move in any direction including
             diagonals for as many squares as they want.

Blood flow:

  OBJECTIVE: Open/Close gates so that the blood can flow from the heart to
             the end. NOTE: Click the heart to get the blood flowing when
             you think you have it.

  The easiest strategy I found was to start from the end. Click the gates
  and you will notice that the end with the little ball is fixed. Click the
  gates open and closed so that there is a continuous path for the blood to
  follow. By staring at the end this path is obvious.

                                                                     PAGE: 6

aMAZEing, isn't it?

  OBJECTIVE: Find your way through the maze to the basement. Another puzzle
             awaits you there. NOTE: The room with the Bishop puzzle has
             a maze on a carpet. This is also the map to the basement. 
             The maze is recreated below. The lengths of sections in the 
             actual maze seem different than the map indicates even though 
             the overall relationship of openings etc. seems correct.

Crypt in the basement:

  OBJECTIVE: Get the lid's all closed before the dead escape.

  There are 9 coffins arranged like this:

      1 2 3
      4 5 6
      7 8 9

  Clicking to open/close the lid on one affects the ones around it
  like this:  (X) is the one clicked - n means no change in the lid.

            n 2 n   1 n n   n n 3   1(2)3   n n n
            4(5)6  (4)n n   n n(6)  n n n   n n n 
            n 8 n   7 n n   n n 9   n n n   7(8)9

           (1)2 n   n n n   n 2(3)  n n n        
            4 5 n   4 5 n   n 5 6   n 5 6   
            n n n  (7)8 n   n n n   n 8(9)

  Notice that clicking 2,4,6 or 8 has no effect on 5.

  One more thing: Several times while trying to click on #9 I managed to
  instead click while the right beckoning hand was displayed. This exits
  the puzzle early. Be sure you have the EYE before clicking in a coffin.

  Although I am sure there is a nice algorithm for this solution I still
  have not found it. I have managed to solve it by brute force only.

  By resetting the puzzle I usually find a fairly easy one to solve within
  a few minutes.

Knights in the Bathroom:

  OBJECTIVE: Swap the Black and White Knights.

   Solution: I've solved this through brute force. It took enough moves
             that I don't plan to document it here.

This is the PIT's:

  OBJECTIVE: Unknown

      HINTS: You do not need to step om all the colored bricks to win.
             Every third brick you step on needs to be purple.
             When stepping on the FINISH brick it must be the third in that
             sequence.

Flip Picture:

  OBJECTIVE: Using the control buttons around the edges retore the picture
             back to it's correct state. Each time the puzzle is restated
             it is scrambled different.

   SOLUTION: When the picture is displayed correctly before being scrambled
             the squares of it are numbered 1 to 9 as show below. Memorize
             the section and it's number as shown below.

    BUTTONS: Clicking on B1 increments the picture shown in squares 1,4 and 7
             to the next picture in sequence. If picture 9 was shown then
             picture 1 is displayed in that square.

             Clicking on B2 increments squares 2,5 and 8.

             Clicking on B3 increments squares 3,6 and 9.

             Clicking on buttons B7,B8 or B9 decrement their column.

             Clicking on buttons B10,B11 or B12 increment the picture on
             their row.

             Clicking on buttons B4,B5 or B6 decrement their row.

          
                                (Next Picture)
                                 B1   B2   B3
                               +----+----+----+
                           B12 |  1 |  2 |  3 | B4

                              (Previous Picture)

   Note: I had the best luck resetting the puzzle until I got one that had
         the same pattern in columns 1 and 2. I was then able to increment
         column 3 to the same pattern. I was then able to increment row 1
         and 2 until all 9 squares had the SAME picture. I then set column
         2 to the picture before column 3. I then set column 1 to be the
         picture before column 2. I then decremented the rows 1 and 2 until
         I had the complete picture.

Spelling Blocks:

  OBJECTIVE: Rearrange the block to spell the correct three words.

    CONTROL: Clicking on the TOP of a column slides the lower two
             blocks up, the top one goes to the bottom. The opposite
             is true by clicking on the BOTTOM of a column.
             Clicking on the RIGHT edge of a row slides the row to the
             right. The rightmost block goes to the left edge. Again the
             opposite is true for the LEFT edge.

             The blocks always initialize to the same configuration:

                             +---+---+---+
                             | D | A | T |

                             | T | E | G |
                             +---+---+---+

Piano Bar:

  OBJECTIVE: Follow the song through 18 notes repeating in a 'Follow the
             leader' type of game.

   SOLUTION: I taped a piece of paper to my screen and marked all the keys
             on it. Then I numbered the keys 1,2,3...18 as they were
             played.

  I believe this is the Sequence - Only part of the Keyboard is shown.
  I've entered this in two different formats, use the one you find easiest
  to follow.

  There are 9 sections arranged like this:

      1 2 3
      4 5 6
      7 8 9

  Clicking to change a section affects the ones around it like this:  
      (X) is the one clicked - n means no change in the piece.

            n 2 n   1 n n   n n 3   1(2)3   n n n
            4(5)6  (4)n n   n n(6)  n n n   n n n 
            n 8 n   7 n n   n n 9   n n n   7(8)9

           (1)2 n   n n n   n 2(3)  n n n        
            4 5 n   4 5 n   n 5 6   n 5 6   
            n n n  (7)8 n   n n n   n 8(9)

  Notice that clicking 2,4,6 or 8 has no effect on 5.
