A Freak Accident Leaves Seattle Pantsless III: Endgame is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2000 by Admiral Jota. It was an entry in the Speed-IF 8 event.

You play as someone who's been chasing a sock across North America for fifteen years. Once it was your favorite sock, but then it went bad. Very bad. Now it's back in Acapulco, hiding in this very shop.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the game.

Thank You to my Patreon supporters

This walkthrough is provided free of charge since I wrote this walkthrough prior to January 2015 when I began my Patreon account, and also because the work it's based on has less than fifteen locations (so I wouldn't have charged for it anyway). I've since reformatted this walkthrough to use my currently preferred style. I hope you enjoy it!

I'm still creating new walkthroughs! Larger ones too! Please visit my Patreon account if you're interested in helping me create more interactive fiction walkthroughs. I appreciate all the help I can get! Thanks again.
