The rec room puzzle is one of the locked rooms C-Team will encounter in Zero Time Dilemma. Here’s how to solve it.
Step 1: Pick up the chess rules on the table.
Step 2: Pick up the wooden box and the matches on the counter.
Step 3: Use the matches to start a fire in the fireplace and throw the wooden box in.
Step 4: Take the bottle of water found on the wooden shelf behind the counter.
Step 5: Use the water to put out the fire.
Step 6: Grab the hook from the suit of armor standing next to the fireplace, then use it to retrieve the box. You’ll get your first coin.
Step 7: Use the hook to lift up a panel on the floor next to the card table and grab the wooden hammer.
Step 8: Use the hammer to knock out the ‘C’ block on the chess board.
Step 9: On the round cylinder, from left to right, select these symbols: Rook, Bishop, King. You’ll get the second coin here.
Step 10: At the roulette table, enter the code ‘SPIN’ to obtain the wheel and the third coin.
Step 11: Place the roulette wheel on top of the slot machine, and then pull the lever.
Step 12: Take the puzzle pieces, examine the heart symbol on the slot machine, and recreate the heart symbol with the pieces you have.
Step 13: Take the fourth coin and the card calendar.
Step 14: Use the card on the jukebox, then pick up the three dice that fall to the ground.
Step 15: Topple the house of cards. With the card calendar, you can figure out the equation on the table, which translates to: JAM – ODDS + SADMAN. Using the clues you’ve found around the room, this gives you 100 – 35 + 570 = 635.
Step 16: Insert the three dice into the slot at the side of the card table, and set them to 6, 3, and 5 respectively. This gives you the fifth coin.
Step 17: Go to the coin machine next to the card table, and insert all five coins.
After you’ve completed all the above steps, you’ll be able to seek a way out of the rec room in Zero Time Dilemma.
