Weekly Wiki: Three Sheets to the Wind

August 2nd, 2011 by | No comments

The following text is directly copied and pasted from the Monkey Island Wiki. Not because I’m lazy (well, I am, but that’s still now why), but because I can’t rewrite it to sound any better.

Three Sheets to the Wind is a book of poetry, written by various pirates. Upon reading it, Guybrush says it is some of the worst poetry he has ever read. The book is available from the Phatt City Library in Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge but has been checked out by Governor Phatt; it rests atop his big belly and Guybrush must replace it with another book in an Indiana-Jones-style switch to keep from awakening the governor when he takes it. The book is necessary for identifying the coffin of Rapp Scallion, as the coffins in Stan‘s Cozy Crypt in the Scabb Island Cemetery are marked only by a famous quotation of the deceased.

Three Sheets to the Wind is also the title of Part III in The Curse of Monkey Island, in which Guybrush must participate in Insult Swordfighting at sea. The phrase “three sheets to the wind” refers to someone who is intoxicated, comparing the drunk to a ship whose sailing sheets have come loose.

Polly: Do you replay MI2

February 7th, 2011 by | 3 comments

It seems 10% uses the category links often while 44% uses them once in a while and 46% don’t use them at all. We are currently in the process of reducing the category list and making other changes and optimizations.

We now continue to look at how often fans play the Monkey Island games. How many times have you played ‘LeChuck’s Revenge‘? Only once? Twice? Once a year? Every Thursday? In this poll we make no distinction between the original game and the Special Edition. It’s also okay if you can’t remember the exact number, just estimate 🙂 Feel free to elaborate in the comments!

How many times have you played MI2?

  • 1 time (3%, 2 Votes)
  • 2-3 times (14%, 9 Votes)
  • 4-6 times (38%, 24 Votes)
  • 7-10 times (16%, 10 Votes)
  • 11-20 times (14%, 9 Votes)
  • 20+ times (14%, 9 Votes)
