Solve the Labyrinth Bones Puzzle in Mythology Island

The Minotaur’s Labyrinth in Poptropica Mythology Island is a tricky place, indeed. Looking at the comments posted to my Poptropica Mythology Island Walkthrough video, it looks like a few people are having problems with the bones puzzle that you have to do after meeting the ghost of Pan inside the labyrinth.

The puzzle starts off by simply saying,

Fifteen bones of ancient men,
Take back six but still leave ten.

It doesn’t take a math genius to figure out that fifteen minus six is nine, so taking six bones away from fifteen doesn’t exactly leave you ten. Or does it? Remember, the labyrinth is a sneaky place and heed Pan’s advice that there is more than one way to read the bones.

The answer, of course, is that this is a riddle. You can remove six bones to leave nine bones in place that spell out the word ten. Take a look at the before and after screenshots.

Labyrinth Bones Puzzle

You start with fifteen bones...

There you have it. That minotaur is one sneaky monster.

  1. why did they make so many hard things in the labrnith?

  2. This part was really easy, it’s those stupid snakes that are hard!!!! ;(

  3. yea candy cotton is right

  4. and that silly scorpion !

  5. You know, for a creature of Mythology infamous for being a bloodthirstly man/bull, he is pretty smart. That bridge must be the bridge to Create, the island on which the myth of the Minotaur is supposed to take place.

  6. the labyrinth is so

  7. I need help on the red eyed snake part. I can’t get the red eyed snake even if I stay in one hole and wait for it to come out. Help! (I’m pretty sure many people have said that before…).

  8. wow i didnt know that!your so clever mytoman

  9. CottonC

  10. sry bout that . As I was saying, CottonCandy, just click like crazy or watch the walkthrough.

  11. I mean CandyCotton. But if it is TOO hard, just click CLOSE.

  12. its so hard cause sometimes they come twice at the same position and sometimes they come odly out of nowhere

  13. sneaky wing if you want to join a multiverse room with me enter the code….DGH44

  14. thx for showing how to beat the island!!!

  15. i cant wait till skull dugery is out, it took me 2 days to pass mytholy island it was easy oh and the snakes where not hard they where easy i think it is my faverite island of all

  16. I’m on. hey, IM HAPPY,I tried to get in your room, but I guess you shut down your computer. BTW You can go in my room. Here’s the code…..AQG51

  17. You’re are an odd player, huh I’M HAPPY. I’m not insulting him he said it himself in one of the comments. No argument here! ๐Ÿ˜€

  18. what does thrice mean??

  19. the labyrinth was the easiest part form me. the maze was like overly easy. and the bones puzzle wasn’t even a challenge. and Mythoman, the minotaur was a pet of king Minos who lived on CRETE (cuz u spelled it wronge and i looked like create). Anyways, King minos didn’t want to lose him so he trapped the minotaur in the labyrinth and the labyrinth was designed so that nobody can get in and so nobody can get out thats why the labyrinth looked was like that, and the gate had to be opened by creating a tune. thats really how the myth goes.

  20. *wrong not “wronge”
    *for not form

  21. princessshinegoldheart666

    thanks!!!!!! i have all the medallions now!!!!!!

  22. I don’t need that part’s guide…I’m wondering what do do AFTER that!

  23. WHAT you’re like spamming Christopher
    And I don’t think this is the longest comment in the world because I myself had even longer ones

  24. i figured that out it was easy and Sunny you just click the snake’s head really fast.The
    red-eyed snake moves even faster than the regular snakes.It took me half an hour so
    you have to time it right.

    -Cool Flyer

  25. is anybody on? give me their code. i don’t have 1.

  26. BTW, i have beaten every island that has come out to everyone.i beat early poptropica,shark tooth,24 carrot,time tangled,super power,spy,nabooti,big nate,
    astro knights,counterfeit,reality TV,and mythology. So you can say i’m a good player.
