You need to do what he asked at the start of the game but somehow do this in one move.
You'll then understand my previous hint.

I've tried drop treasure, return treasure, treasure, restore treasure, use treasure, give treasure!!!!!!!

How you worked it out is completely beyond me!

What did he ask, fuzzel?

You're on the right lines, he wants all the treasure. I tried drop all which it didn't understand so I then tried other things for a while
before I remembered that some games prefer another word to all (in Lords of Time if you try to drop all it says "You don't have an Allosaurus." but at least you know you have to try another word for all).
So what's next or are you having a well earned rest from text adventuring ?

I'll be giving the new game Darkness of Raven Wood a go.

I tried Oxbridge after you mentioned but it melted my mind trying to work out what to do!

I've now completed the game. Thank you so much for your support, fuzzel!

No problem Roberto, I've enjoyed playing it over the last couple of weeks.
Hopefully we can have a crack at another game at some point. It's nice to have a bit of company playing an adventure as it can be a bit of a lonely
enterprise these days (that doesn't seem to stop me though).
Incidentally, it's worth reading some of the other topics in this adventure forum when you get a sec, I find it gets me in the mood to play a game and there are some good suggestions for games to play too.

I've just uploaded the solution to this game to CASA.

I'd appreciate recommendations for other unsolved games please (any excuse to have a break from Oxbridge !)

Or any other games you've enjoyed, particularly if they weren't by the big boys (Acornsoft, Level 9, Topologika, Robico, Magus).

I'm going to speak to my brothers and sisters to see what other text adventure games we had that we didn't complete.

Many thanks, again, fuzzel!
