So ... I'm stuck in Laura Bow 2, also. :( Any help?

Feeling like this game could be murder... literally? Well, come on in here for some extra detective work (and clues/hints/etc!) for the Laura Bow games (The Colonel's Bequest and The Dagger of Amon Ra).

Hmmmm ..... I've read a little bit about LB1:TCB on GOG and wiki etc. - just what the gameplay is like, not what the story is (not in detail, anyhow).
Apparently, it's possible to miss quite vital clues because the game is devised in time-blocks. So if I miss a conversation or a vital clue because there's no time, then later, I'm stuck (or give the wrong conclusions). :( It sounds very much like LB2 (and the later GK3).
That seems rather unfair. How can I solve a mystery properly, if I don't have the time to get all the facts?
How does anyone solve a mystery without having all the right facts?

You get what you get and try to deduce from there what may have happened.

Or... you save frequently before entering any room... and restore if you've not explored other rooms to see if entering said room triggers the next block.

You can, with some effort, actually avoid almost every single clue and still have the game move forward.

But honestly, if you're concerned - just save before you go into a room. And you can restore if there's other rooms you check that don't trigger the next event.
