EEEK - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
That key game on jkrowling.com=not fun. Is there a way to eliminate the keys you've tried? Or am I just not seeing a difference among the keys? (Don't tell me what the difference is if there is one, just, you know... if there is one.)

Anyway, meme gakked from lessthanpie (I think, though I clicked over so long ago because I've been chasing bloody KEYS that I don't remember for sure!)

[i'm dean thomas]

...and which lesser Harry Potter character are you?

PS: Accidentally found the key while posting; still can't see how I could have logically deduced it!

Someone told me the right key moves a little slower than the rest.
I don't see it, though.

I thought of that, but clicking the slowest key was a failure, too. So it has to be something else.

Someone in my forum just said that the key is the rightest key, just after the scramble.

For a while I thought that one of the keys pointed left while all the others pointed right, but then a bunch of them turned around and when I snagged the one that pointed left it wasn't the right one.

It seemed to be pretty random. Ugh.

Yup. That's what made it not a good game. Or maybe I'm just too Hermionesque for my own good.

Anyway, I finally got in and found the stuff. And there is a riddle involved, which used some brain cells, so...

I heard somewhere that if you hold your mouse in the middle of the group, one key starts spiraling in and out. But really, I just kept clicking.

I've waited at one position for the keys to fly by and just clicked them with my mousepointer when they passed. I was sucessful after a few clicks. But after reading about your difficulties I think that was pure chance. Good luck!!!

The right key moves in a different pattern from the others, and i think it's the only one that does- think about tracing the paths that the keys make- one of them makes a different shape from the others.

They each move in a little different pattern. That's how I eliminated each one--by the pattern it travelled.

I got the right one first try, though I'm not entirely sure if I can duplicate the feat -- it seemed as if it did move differently from the others, sort of lower and more toward the doorknob after they started scattering.

It took me forever to get the key.
I had heard that the slowest one was the correct key, but that one didn't work. I ended up randomly clicking and trying keys for about 20 minutes until I happened upon the correct one.
Most frustrating.

I found it by tracing the patterns of each of the keys. I can't remember which one it was now, I was able to deduce which one it was.
