As the title says non-US players will not be able to complete Puzzle 3-Part 2

Spoiler (click to reveal)
In part 2 you are required to make an actual phone call but it is to a US phone number

This will also become a problem for US players in future years

Cool idea though


The phone number is
Spoiler (click to reveal)
0031 10 2014573


the combination is
Spoiler (click to reveal)
5411

Does anyone have a non-US version of the game? Does Puzzle 3-Part 2 have a different solution that works in your particular country?

Puzzle 3 can be solved by non US players. There are different versions of the game. The number listed above is the Dutch number. The North American version has a different number with a 1866 area code.

How are you guys in Australia generating a working phone number? Because the code on my copy certainly doesn't directly translate into a phone number that works.

My code looks like this:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
#00M1 f tKD 100 E1


Which, to me, translates to:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
#0061 3 853 100 31


Which generates a "...the number you have dialed is incorrect or incomplete" message when dialed.

I've also tried
Spoiler (click to reveal)
#0061 3 853 166 31, in case the last 2 0s are actually Os,
but I get the same message.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
0061 looks correct; it being the Australia country dialing code. So I've also tried #0061 03 853 100 31 and #0061 03 853 166 31 adding the extra 0 in front of the 3 as 03 is the Victoria and Tasmania state dialing code.
But these still give me no joy -
Spoiler (click to reveal)
...0031 gives the incorrect/incomplete error message above, and ...6631 gives me a "this number has been disconnected" message.


It's doing my head in. What am I missing here?

Sorry, you're right about the spoilers - late night posting. It's fixed now.

With regards to the number, I've looked at the official website's cheat-sheet and know the right phone number/code. What I want to know is how to get from the code on the suitcase to the phone number. The website says
Spoiler (click to reveal)
"...converting the letters [in the code] into numbers using the keyboard of your telephone or the telephone on the suitcase, you will find the phone number..."
, however
Spoiler (click to reveal)
the phone on the suitcase and every phone I've looked at says: M = 6, f = 3, t = 8, K = 5, D = 3, & E = 3
so what's the trick here that I'm missing?

Yeah you're right!

I didn't bother looking at the puzzle after I gave up and looked at the walkthrough.

Those numbers are bogus AFAIK

We couldn't do it here in australia. I contacted the company and they said it was a misprint. It's a shame, the rest of the product has been excellent.

I played this scenario tonight and having read this thread previously was expecting the phone number to not work in Australia - but it does!

(I checked it is the same number as in the spoiler comment above so it appears they have purchased the number and I don't have a different printing).

So can anyone confirm the number I would need for the UK? The number I have is in German?!
