Welcome aboard, matey! Dust off your scuba tank, shake out your flippers,
and prepare to go treasure hunting. But first, a word from our sponsor.
Cutthroats, like most Infocom games, has several solutions. This walkthru
will show you one way of completing the adventure. However, there are
others, so when you've finished, you might want re-play the game, doing
different things, to see if you can come up with another way of recovering
the treasures successfully.
Also, you should be aware that you can only recover treasures from 2 of the
ships, the Sao Vera and the S.S. Leviathan. The other wrecks are only red

will have to sit through this on each boot-up; no way around it.
After that, the game really begins, with you lying in bed in your scruffy
room at the Red Boar Inn. The first thing to do is stand up, then wind your
watch (time is important in the game, and if your watch runs down, you
can't keep track of the time). There's a note on the floor. Read that, then
open your dresser. Inside are the shipwreck book, your bankbook, and a room
key. Get the key, open the door, go out, and lock the door again. You don't
want to leave the door open, or the Weasel will come by later and steal the
