The object is to solve the puzzles to enter rooms and capture 10 ixupi that are running wild in the museum. There are 10 pots and 10 corresponding lids (talismans) scattered throughout the museum. Their positions are random and may change if you die or restart. Note the joining shapes on the pots and lids to combine the vessels. Once you have a complete vessel, capture the corresponding ixupi. One of the library books describes the markings on the pots which helps you identify which ixupi to place in each pot. You are only allowed to hold one inventory item at a time, so make a note of where you leave each pot and talisman. Once you have a completed vessel, you should try to capture the corresponding ixupi immediately. Be sure to use the flashback feature on the control panel, it shows books and other information once they've been found. In this Walkthrough, where it states "note pot/lid", know that there may not be a pot or lid in that area, but if there is one, note it. You should save your game after solving difficult puzzles and before capturing ixupi.
