The Five Senses: Level 2
Level 2 is full of different smells and talking ant eaters. Match the ant eater with the room and get through the level! Try to give the players oblique clues about what the ant eaters want (except the first two, which are obvious to get them started).
GREEN WITH PINES
The pine room has an orange ant eater who hates pine. Hates it with a passion. He loves oranges but all he gets is pine. He's miserable. He follows the characters around complaining. The room is full of pine trees, the floor littered with pine needles. The walls are painted like a pine forest stretching into infinity.
If you take him to the orange room, then he's really, really happy and gives you something "he's supposed to guard with his life, but you're so good, he'll give it to you" - 1/9th of a green stop sign.
ORANGE WITH ORANGES
This room is chock-full of orange trees, with benches beneath for munching on them. Unfortunately, it's occupied by a brown ant-eater who hates oranges. He does love chocolate, though. If you bring the orange ant-eater into this room, the brown one will think he's a complete idiot for liking oranges.
WHITE WITH SALT
This room is full of mounds of salt - salt on the floor, hills of salt for sliding in. In it is a yellow ant-eater is surrounded by bugs and wants them gotten rid of (i.e. wants to be in the citronella room). [If your players don't know about citronella, when they get to that room you should give them hints about the smell. Or they could figure it out by process of elimination.]
BROWN WITH CHOCOLATE
This room is full of chocolate - candy, bars, syrup, you name it. In it is a pale yellow anteater starving to death who wants some real food (i.e. spaghetti). He's allergic to chocolate, though.
PINK WITH ROSE
This room is full of pretty rose bushes, carved benches, a fountain. It smells lovely. In it is a white ant-eater eating french-fries. He complains that they don't taste right (i.e. they need salt) He hates flowers.
PALE YELLOW WITH SPAGHETTI
This room has shelves and shelves of spaghetti in them, and a big pot over a fire boiling water. It's decorated with an Italian theme. In it is as dark brown ant-eater who loves Chinese food. He's sick of spaghetti.
YELLOW WITH CITRONELLA
This room has lots of citronella candles in it. It's done up like a picnic - with a wood table, red-checkered tablecloth, peanut butter sandwiches. In the room is a pink ant eater who wants something better smelling, he's sick of citronella smell. (i.e. the roses)
DARK BROWN WITH SOY SAUCE
This room is done with pretty bridges and little trees, and bottles of soy sauce on one side. There are bamboo shoots and water chestnuts in a little pond. The grey ant-eater here is an artist and needs something interesting to build a new sculpture out of. Something he can recycle to show how much he cares for "Mother Earth". (i.e. old sneakers)
GREY OLD SNEAKERS
This room is filthy and has all sorts or garbage lying around it. There's a huge pile of old sneakers in one corner. Sulking in the middle of the room is a sad green ant-eater. He loves the beauty of nature, and is tired of being in this dump. (i.e. pines)
The room in the far back has a big red STOP sign on a door. If you put all green pieces on it, it spells GO and the door opens to stairs going down.
