You mentioned you were able to go upstairs, which is a lot more difficult than getting the tile from the champion:

Contractual Obligation
If I tell you everything it will take all of the enjoyment out of the gamebook. Many others have managed to crack it, so it's not impossible. The fact that you are able to achieve difficult tasks and yet get stuck on easier ones suggests to me that perhaps you are playing with preconceptions or an inconsistent strategy; in either case the challenges present you with an opportunity to understand more about your own approach and mindset. In regards to the point you mention specifically:
SPOILER  
END SPOILER

The difficulty in obtaining the tiles was designed to increase in difficulty with ruby tile from the Royal Champion being the easiest (one item, 2 actions required), the sapphire tile from the chaimberlain being harder (2 items, 3 actions). The diamond tile from the Royal Execution was intended to be many times more difficult still with several items and actions required, plus a trap to make the whole thing impossible. However, you don't seem to be stuck on the hard bit yet. The way this gamebook was intended to be played was that a reader would explore, find clues in the descriptions of each area for items that could procide further access (e.g. if something is described as having a coin slot, the player will then be on the lookout for a coin). In this way they would find new areas and items, and succeed as long as they avoided the trap.

I know being stuck is frustrating, but you are asking for much more help than the norm. I would also like to reiterate my recomendation that you play through the series right from the start with the same character, otherwise when you play episode 8, you will suffer a lot ;)

Hi Guys, finished Crate and Trout. Great fun. You are correct about C. O.. Round and round we go. Found a robot that shoots body parts but m;ust have been to soon. What a puzzel!

I actually had to draw a map for C.O., the place was so confusing. And, I may be wrong, but I believe it's possible to fail certain puzzles and miss key items, thus making the book impossible to finish, even though you don't die or get any kind of 'game over' sequence. Ulysses, could you clarify this? And Walker, did you get the Star of Cha-Ching in Hypertrout?

I may have gotten a commendation as when I replayed and replayed I think I saw a "Commendation" at the start of the new game. I don't remember receiveing it however. Sometimes the voice synth misses things. i have gotten the red card and the card workedto get the 1 tile. I got to the robot from the well and he shot all his body parts so, too soon. It is tough so I wrote notes to find how to get back to places but WoW, it is a maze in there.

Yeah, to win C.O. you need to find 3 golden tiles. I can only remember how to get 2. And I'm pretty sure that they're all missable. Eg one part requires you enter an office and drug the person inside with Palkasian spirits. Walk in without the spirits and you cannot re enter, thus making the book un-finishable. I had to download the offline version and read that to figure out what the hell I was supposed to do and when to do it! Good luck with it.

Yes, you're right. There should be an intervening passage describing:

I can't explain why that that got left out, but there it is. Since this is a major error; if I have some time I will fix the text version, resubmit it to the site and request the electronic version to be amended. Hopefully adding in one reference won't be too troublesome.

You look over the remains of the powerful robot and nod your head at the undeniable evidence that you are super-cool and tough.

@potatoCakes:

If I recall correctly, you get the blue card by giving someone a drink (in the correct location at the right time).

as for "the enclosure", I'm not sure exactly what you're asking about...

How do you get the coin from the grate, I think I've explored everywhere, but can't find anything useful. Also can't find a way upstairs, though I think I know where to get there just not how. Something to do with the torture room items? And finally, does the mirror have any use, without revealing what it's use is if it has one.
