Question 1

Hint 1
Examine the old photo of Sterling House.
Hint 2
If you look closely, you can see that the photo of Sterling House has a word written in many places. In the clouds, in the trees, in the gravel, on the car, in the masonry, etc.
Answer - BEWARE, SPOILER!
The word ‘kill’ is hidden in many places in the photo.

Question 2

Hint 1
Go to www.familycircle.online and download the requested file. Then upload the file to the Ghost Unit website.
Hint 2
In the audio clip, three sequences of rooms in Sterling House are whispered. Can you find these rooms on the map?
Hint 3
Draw an (imaginary) line on the Sterling House floor plan between the rooms whispered in the audio clip. You can only go from one room to another through a door. So you can’t go through walls.
Answer - BEWARE, SPOILER!
If you connect the rooms according to the three series in the audio fragment, 3 letters become visible on the map: T – H – E

So the word you’re looking for is ‘the’.

Question 3

Hint 1
The box contains an old photo showing the map of Sterling Estate above an old fireplace. In this photo you can see what else you need for this puzzle.
Hint 2
For this puzzle you will need:

  • The map of Sterling Estate
  • The old photo on which the map hangs on the wall above a fireplace
  • The golden key
  • The broken piece of wooden frame that was originally around the map
Hint 3
There are strange shapes in the piece of wooden picture frame. One of those shapes may look familiar to you. Maybe something fits in there?
Hint 4
The aging on the map shows where the piece of wooden picture frame used to be. There are four places where the piece of frame fits.
Hint 5
Things are written on the back of the old photo with the map hanging on the wall.
Answer - BEWARE, SPOILER!
If you put the golden key in the wooden piece of picture frame and place the whole in the four correct places along the edge of the map, the eye of the key will fall on exactly four locations.

On the back of the old photo, these locations are also shown with one or two letters behind them.

If you put these letters together you get the word ‘serpent’.

What should we do in the archive?

The ghosts don't signal us through the Ouija Board
That’s just the way it is. Cheer up and get on with the game.

Hint 2
Place the 4 children’s drawings against each other in such a way that a word appears in the middle of the whole.
Hint 3
There are names on the four corners of the children’s drawings. There are symbols on the four corners of the Ouija Board.
Answer - BEWARE, SPOILERS!
Alice = Star

Lucas = Sword

Emma = Butterfly

William = Serpent (snake)

The tile

Hint 1
If you puzzle the shards of the tile together, a poem about a number of animals becomes visible. Do you see these animals elsewhere?
Hint 2
The large photo of the filing cabinet shows 6 stuffed animals that correspond to the animals from the poem on the tile. Four paintings that correspond to the seasons in the poem hang next to the filing cabinet.
Answer - BEWARE, SPOILER!
In each sentence of the poem there is an animal and a season. If you look for the letter that lies on the intersection between the animal and the season from each line, you will find the following letters: GRACE

The archive

Hint 1
Study the photos carefully.
Hint 2
If you look long enough at the photos in the archive you will see that there are strange scenes playing out. Not only that, words occasionally appear in the photos.

Read the words from the top of the page to the bottom of the page. What sentence do you see?

Answer - BEWARE, SPOILER!
If you put the words in the pictures in a row you get the sentence: Stab him with the key. In the last photo you can see where to put the key.

The same photo is on the back of the Ouija Board. Pierce William’s heart with the key.

The Ouija Bord

Hint 1
If you put the key in William’s heart, the sun will fall out on the other side of the Ouija Board. There is a text written on the back of the sun.
Hint 2
If you insert the key into the side of the Ouija Board, a text will slide into the board where the sun used to be.
Hint 3
If you carefully turn the key in the Ouija Board, a secret compartment on the back will open.

Sales & Overseas Transactions

Hint 1

At the bottom of the document are two words in bold: whiskey and coin.
Answer - BEWARE, SPOILER!
The numbers that belong in the middle column are: 4, 6, 2, 2, 6, 9, 4, 6, 5

Place the coin on the whiskey bottle and see which letters belong to these numbers.

Examine the bottom of the box, could there be something hidden inside?
