Here is the first scene you will see as soon as the game starts. Time to grab that snow shovel and start looking for other items. Click on an area to focus on it and move closer.

Note: Items that you have found along the way will disappear from the holding area at the bottom once you have used them as needed during game play (one or more times depending on the item).

When you are finished in an area move your mouse towards the bottom, left, or right side of the game window to see the shadowed bar. Click on that to ‘back away’ from the current location or move to another area around the house.
