Game in 4 CD-Rom for PC / Dos, announced for 1992, out only in 1995. Made by
Trilobyte and distributed by Virgin, it is the continuation of The 7th Guest.

such a success that in the new version, there is an Hexxagon. Its hexagonal
board contains hexagons (5 by side) which look like honeycombs. No blocks,

The pieces positions, at the beginning, is the same than the default beginning
of the SC Hexxagon.
In the third CD, after many and many riddles, the player confronts a
new one called as "You might hear a well mannered cockney..." In the attic,
after the wooden door, on the ground is a Beehive Puzzle... It is the Hexxagon.

To directly access the Hexxagon, you may download from this site a
saved file (1 Kb, zip format). It has
the number 9 (S11h.9), perhaps will you have to rename it (for example S11h.2).
And don't forget that it needs the third CD...
