Hints and Help

Don’t worry if you reach a point where you aren’t sure what to do next.

First, look again at all the illustrations on the front of the revealed cards and review all the opened envelopes. They will help you solve the puzzles, make important decisions, and uncover new locations.

Next, see if you can find any full phone numbers marked with the phone icon. You should “call” this number using the website.

If that doesn’t help, you can find clues for every envelope and card below!
Just click on the card or envelope  that you would like a hint for below. The hints for the cards are divided into “help” and “solution” tabs. 

Further down this page, you can also find some help with the central questions of the game. These hints deal primarily with the reconstruction of the crime and the alibis of the various suspects. 

If you need help with websites, you can find it under the tips for the maps or objects where the web address was found.

The menu gives you two important pieces of information.

  1. You can reveal a new location. Draw cards 33-36 to explore the new location G.
  2. Marco seems to have something planned with Giovanni and Luca. Can you figure something out from his order and the words “hour, minute, day, month”?

Marco and his confidants used the Cucina Autentica menu to set up secret appointments. The numbers of the ordered dishes give the exact meeting time in the pattern “hour, minute, day, month”.

Marco meets with Luca and Giovanni at 6:30 PM on 3/12. (March 12th) If you have already uncovered location G, you can enter the code here.

Since you found this letter in Marco’s apartment, you must assume that it was addressed to him. Marco’s lover addresses him as “Hades” and calls herself “P”. If you don’t have an idea right away, refresh your knowledge about the Greek gods on the Internet.

Marco meets his lover regularly in a shady hotel.  She books for the two of them under the name Persephone. When did they last meet up? If you can’t reconstruct the date, use a calendar to find out on which Friday the two lovers met.

To really use the letter, you still need something that you find in another place.

From the casino’s figures, you can deduce that that money is being stolen from the casino. Since Giovanni has taken over the business for Luca Russo, it can be assumed that Giovanni is stealing money for his own enrichment.

In addition, this envelope gives you Giovanni’s cell phone number.

Giorgina has this newspaper article hanging in her locker. Why is it so important to her?

Isabella Messina disappeared in 2000 together with her daughter Giorgina, who was born on April 7th 1999.  Isabella’s mother Maria Lombardo blamed her daughter’s husband Salvatore Messina for the disappearance. 

Do these names and/or faces sound familiar?

Giorgina Lombardo has realized that she is the daughter Giorgina Messina who disappeared. The New York Daily article has motivated her to make inquiries about her mother Isabella and her father Salvatore.

Never lose sight of what is important: What is really obviously relevant about the harbor?

The boy at the harbor provided important information that you could easily use as an excuse.

Never forget your position as a cartel boss.

Resolution of the Case

When you have drawn all the cards, you can close the case. Go through all the evidence and clues again and check the motives and alibis of the suspects.

You should be able to answer these questions to solve the case:
1. Who knew about the weapon transfer to the Messinas?
AND
2. Could have caused the blackout at 9:00 p.m.?
AND
3. Was able to make the call to the police at 10:00 p.m.?

If you are sure that you can clearly identify a perpetrator, press the button below and continue solving the case. Don’t worry, if you make a mistake, you can look at the clues again.

You did it!

After you have reported all the results of the investigation, you also tell the godfather about Giorgina’s betrayal. Of course, you suspect that the young woman did not want to kill Marco, but only to take revenge on her father Salvatore Messina. But the thought that the son was only collateral damage in a revenge move does not comfort the grieving father. 

Now draw card 5.

Amato Perez seems to have a love for coke and prostitutes, you can definitely use this information against him.

Starsandsecrets.de is an interesting site. Bonita’s new song sounds interesting – especially the lyrics. Almost as if she were describing the way to a special place. If only we had a map of Cubaidos?

A quiz like this might give you new information. Of course, you can wait until you already have all the information. But wrong answers could also help.

The contract clearly shows that Rolando and Dayana’s relationship is not a normal father and daughter relationship. Rolando seems to have taken advantage of his daughter financially.

The fact that Dayana legally broke away from her father led to the breakup between the two. But this also has extreme financial consequences for Rolando. Could this be a motive for making his daughter disappear?

  1. Have you already heard Bonita’s new song? The map could help you find a new location.

If you follow the path that Bonita describes in her song, you will come to the club “La Rosa Azul”. Enter this answer on the code page to get a new location.

Have you already been to the harbor, the diving club and the car repair shop? Then you can use the map and the high and low tide table to find out where Dayana went diving.

Follow the arrows that correspond to high and low tide. For example, the last two hours before Dayana was found was low tide.

Dayana went diving at Loner’s Cave. Enter this result on the code page.

It seems important to figure out when Bonita was working at the Salsa Club.

Start by writing down how many hours each woman could work this week. This will help you group them into the right shifts.

Bonita worked from 5 p.m. to midnight on November 2nd, 2021.

Who did Nia text? Other envelopes could help you figure that out.

Nia mentions that Dayana and Becca got married on board. At least that the two assume that they are married. This information seems relevant.

Nia texted Rolando Rodriguez, who seems interested in Dayana’s will, and Emma Lee, who is most likely not a Dayana superfan.

You’ve learned a lot about Dayana over the course of the game. What do you think of Emma’s letter?

Have you already visited the site “Starsandsecrets.de”? If not, now would be a good time.

Emma clearly has no idea about Dayana. A superfan would know much more. Why is she on Cubaidos?

Every Cubaidan citizen has a lucky number or numbers. Animals, objects or symbols can correspond to these numbers. Some people change these numbers daily, depending on what encounters or dreams they have had, others keep them for their whole lives.

Some people would probably tattoo their lucky numbers. Others have probably had strange animal encounters that could reveal their lucky number.

If you have already been to the diving club, you can use the Charada to translate Camillo’s tattoos. The Charda can also help you translate your mysterious encounters with a goat into your lucky number.

Amato is a busy man. His appointments say a lot about his vices and visions of the future.

Amato appears to be doing business with Dayana and Becca. Can you figure out what it’s about? Plus, Amato obviously has a good relationship with Rolando Rodriguez.

Amato Perez drove to Rolando’s mansion on November 2nd, 2021, right after accepting Dayana’s wetsuit delivery. So he gives Ronaldo an alibi.

In the cave you can clearly see a diving tank and a distinctive wetsuit.

The diving suit fits the description of Dayana’s diving suit that the diving club owner gave you very well. So Dayana was in the cave and took off her wetsuit – after all, she was only found wearing a bikini. Why did she take off her wetsuit? The water around the cave is too cold to go diving without it.

The algae on the diving tank and the small pools that formed in the cave indicate that the cave was flooded. Dayana’s body was washed out of the cave. What did she die of in the cave?

Emma is definitely not a super fan, but a journalist.

Could Emma be dangerous to you? Why is she really in Cubaidos?

Emma Lee is obviously researching your cartel, and she also seems to suspect Becca James of dealing drugs.

You should start with the purple fields. There’s only one line where the sum cannot be 5, no matter which fields are inactive.

The only purple field that is not activated is the last purple field with the 9.

39749, now all you need is the name of the yacht. You can find it on card 30.

The yacht has sailed through the Caribbean several times. What could that mean?

When were the yacht’s last stops and what could they mean?

The yacht left Colombia on 10/31/21. So they were there less than 7 days ago.

What do these crimes say about the personalities of Camillo, Rolando and Becca?

Could any of these crimes be related to Dayana’s death?

Rolando is obviously homophobic. He certainly wouldn’t be happy with his daughter coming out. Becca James is in debt and is wanted in the USA. How can she ever pay off her debts?
