The clue provided by the cemetery puzzle reads “3 family insignias of the dead ringers” which might seem a bit of a strange clue at first. A dead ringer is a person or thing that looks extremely like another, and in this case it’s pointing you towards the gravestones out the front of the church. Three of the gravestones will be in pairs for twins, and have unique insignias above them. These graves will be bigger than the others, and have insignias that look a bit like the letters Z, M and V. Return to the puzzle and you’ll find the same shapes here.

The aim of the puzzle is to rotate the dial such that the three insignias (Z, M and V) are the only ones lit up. Working out how to do this can be a bit tricky, but the answer is actually pretty simple. Rotate the dial in the following order to complete the puzzle:

  • 3,3,3,4,4,4,3

There are several orders that will solve this puzzle, but this list should quickly guarantee that only the three appropriate insignias being lit up, which will open the lock and let you claim your reward of a Green Catseye gem. This treasure isn’t worth much on its own, but you can combine it with the Beerstein along with the red and yellow catseye gems to make a significantly more valuable treasure that’ll earn you more than a handful of pesos.
