So we just played through this and while it was fun an interesting no amount of going back through can solve this. We had to use a hint on the telephone puzzle.

We knew it was a 4 letter word but past that we couldn't figure out how to get the word. I know its on card L and I know that letter is apparently sitting on the table but where and when in the game are you able to discover and be told to draw card L?

It's in the generator room (card 92), bottom left corner. Not sure what you mean by 'able to discover and told to draw'. You draw it and flip it over when you first reveal the generator room along with the cards for all the other circled numbers / letters (and in this case, the hidden number).

Oh wow.. Thanks. Apparently we just overlooked it on the card and so we never drew that card. We went back through the whole deck afterwards trying to see how we would have gotten the card instead of solving the puzzle with clues.

To avoid cluttering up the forum, I'd like to use this thread to ask about my difficulty.

I had trouble figuring out the last bit.

The filing cabinet had the missing letter N. Were we supposed to guess that we were supposed to pull out the N card? Was there a clue that I missed that was supposed to indicate that the N card was related to the missing letter?

The images with the planets is the thing you missed. You have 9 files starting with the same letters as the 9 planets - except Neptune.

Yeah, that's what I meant. I realized that N was relevant, due to the poster, but it seems so unrelated to a card from the deck.
