Due to the constrained inventory space and turn options in Colossal Cave, 350 points are challenging to obtain. Planning, effectiveness, and effective inventory management are required. Additionally, having some familiarity with the game’s rules will be helpful.

In the first section, I’ll detail each deed and circumstance that grants points. In this area, you’ll find everything you missed.

In the video, I’ll walk you through the full procedure. You must bring each of the 15 items to the wellhouse, gather every point, and then leave the cave. I designed the route to take the pirate’s sporadic appearance into mind. You should still be able to find his hiding place, though, to do the job before your lantern runs out.
