The Unfortunate Training of Frank Lee, Monkey Butler to Be
by Josh Giesbrecht

The Unfortunate Training of Frank Lee, Monkey Butler to Be is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2001 by Josh Giesbrecht. It was an entry in the Speed-IF 15 event.

In this miniscule game, you play as Frank Lee, someone who wants to be a monkey butler. Just one more bit of reading from your mail-order course and then you can try using your new skills in public!

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 0 of the game.

Note you must "fling", not "throw" the pie. Your only hint for this guess-the-verb puzzle comes from the game's subtitle, "A Interactive Fling". Boo hiss.





Honorable mention:


In that game you scored your-score out of a possible 12, in few turns, earning you the rank of ranking.


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.
