Does anyone know what to do with the note at the scary-go-round?

Cute game; just started it.

Later...
Just had another go... I was thrown off what "Thrice" meant :(
Sorted it out!

Sure, you have to figure it out!  ;)
Seriously now, try to solve it yourself. You've just started and it's so much more satisfactory to solve it on your own. If you can't figure it out now, come back to it later and explore the rest of the game instead. There is much to see and to do. Don't just give up so easily without really trying.

Hint 1:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Think about what you might need that lens for.


Hint 2:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Look around in the same area where you placed the egg.


Solution:

Put it in the branches that look like claws by the ash shop and the lamppost.

Just finished the game.  I really got into this one.  At first I was walking in circles, but finally got on a roll and the answers came much easier.  Great job!!  I hope to see more from you in the future.

[hide]have you given back the items you have found?  You can't cut the rope - you need to find some other way to break the rope - perhaps something hot ;)[\hide]

Hey, thanks for the encouragement guys!  Some of the puzzles involve tricky thinking, I'm glad so many of you seem to be enjoying them.  :)

Okay I seem to be totally brain dead in this one. I have been wandering around for ages. This is what I have got and done
Spoiler: ShowHide
 lights, unlit candle, goldfish, bones. I have been up in the balloon and know there is a panel in the fountain but don't know how to get to it,  put the egg in the nest, figured out what the numbers are on the roundabout but when those 3 dragons come up have no idea what to do with them. I can't find the lens for the seer. Talked to the orb thing and know that he needs something to focus on. I have talked to everybody. Reading the hints I see that I have to light the candle - don't know how to do that.  What the heck am I doing wrong or is there an area I haven't been that I am missing.

The numbers got me too for a little while... The 3 dragons have 6 eyes, punch the eyes in the order of the numbers, 6 is the furthest to the right


Loved that game - well done!

Joyce,

Spoiler: ShowHide
 It seems as if you've 'missed' one location. When at the merry-go-round, go NORTH.......there's someone you may wish to talk to. Also, the dragon's eyes (number order) was posted in an earlier post. Let me know if you want me to offer more on this! In order to light the candle, you will need to talk to a couple of 'policemen'...... after this, you will be able to light your candle.....


You're not too far behind me..... MY brain's not workin' too well either! HA!

[hide]Actually, she said she'd already put the egg in place, it just sounds like a Scary-Go-Round problem.  Hopefully the hints above will help you out; after that, more things should fall into place.

That's true, Ivy, thanks for catchin' that!

Okay.... it's my turn......I'm at a stand-still, I have:
Spoiler: ShowHide
 fish, bones, lights, lens, demon, lit candle, book, keys, ash. I need to find water (not fountain) and still haven't figured out how to open the hatch in fountain.


I'm SURE it's something really easy that I'm missing......it usually is!!

Well, you have a couple of things in your inventory that are not useful to you, but maybe to others... Don't worry about the hatch and the water yet. You first need to get more information.
