Arriving on the Island

You may wish to tour the island before going to the museum. The areas include the Docks, the Museum and Main Street, Downtown, and the Countryside. The valuable painting "The Scream" by Edvard Munch is due to be exhibited at the Museum Fantastic (this is a French island, but mostly they speak English). It is daytime when you arrive and you have a chance to look around. At night, Downtown is closed for construction and repairs.

Downtown / Countryside

1) There is a pair of large trash cans near the Underground Tunnel Tour. If you dig through the one on the right, you will find a pair of tickets to the Tour. But you decide to return them to their proper owner if possible.

2) There are free balloons in Bobo's Clown Store, and they will lift you high into the air when you jump. This makes the few building climbs easier. Take a green one to the Countryside for a crying boy there. (Oops! He's off!)

Main Street / Museum

3) Return to Main Street and check the news coverage at the Internet Cafe. The PONG game there is addictive, but if you press the old guy, you will find he is the rightful owner of the Tour tickets. He will give you one.

4) Look on the upper right of the Moldy Baguette Inn to find an odd scrap of paper, part of a torn picture of some sort of dragon. (There are 5 more pieces to find.)

5) Take the Underground Tour, which includes some skeletons and coffins. Inside a domed arch, you will find another of the odd dragon picture pieces. There is some sort of special hatch leading up to somewhere. The exit is to the Docks on the far left of the island.

6) Talk to the shady guy at the exit, and get the 3rd piece of the torn picture behind him. The 4th piece is on top of the ship.

Museum Fantastic

7) Go to the Museum (to your right) and see the female Chief Inspector in front. Climb up to get the 5th dragon picture piece on the roof.

8) Enter the Museum and apply for a job. The assistant curator tests you with four sets of paintings, each a different style. Pick the paintings that don't belong and move them to the right category. (The middle one at Upper Left goes to the right at Upper Right, that one goes to the right at Lower Right, that one goes to the middle Lower Left, and that one goes to the middle at Upper Left.)

9) Take the tutorial for Forgery Detection. Use the X-ray to spot the painting with the older artwork underneath. Use the magnifier on three paintings to spot the different signature. The moonlight photo shows stars through the Moon. For the paint test, click the color that lights up in the frame during each timed test : Oil, watercolor, and pastel. (1st is Green-Red-Blue-Red, 2nd is Red-Green-Blue-Blue, 3rd is Blue-Red-Blue-Green.)

10) Get your key to the supply room. Go through the Statue collection and to the Security Office to examine the video surveillance equipment. Go to the Supply Room, where you will find the last piece of the dragon face.

Night Time at the Museum

11) Leave the museum, and go left to the City Docks, and see the guy you met earlier. He wants you to stop the theft of the painting "The Scream". Enter the underground and make your way to the secret tunnel to the surface.

12) Solve the dragon face lock by arranging the 8 facial features to match the picture.

13) Enter the Supply Room and unlock it. Slip past the Security Window and out into the Statue Room.

14) Avoid the lasers by hiding behind the statues until it is safe to move, enter the main hall. The door to the museum is locked, so there is nowhere to go. Take up a protective position near the painting in the upper gallery. (Uh oh! You have tripped the alarm!)

Next Day (In the Jail)

15) Take a lie detector test with the Chief Inspector, who tells you that the painting was actually stolen later in the night.

16) You return to the museum to see if the thief is on the surveillance video.But it is too long. Go to find the security guard who was on duty. All of the townspeople think he needed cheering up, and sure enough you find him in the Clown Store. He has his time card showing when he wasn't in the gallery hall.

17) Back at the museum, discover that the shady guy was the crook, and print his photo to show around town. Although no one seems to know him, the Ship Captain suggests you ask the mimes about him. When you do, they just whistle. This suggests he is in the All That Jazz Cafe (although if you look there first, he's not).

18) Confront the Shady Guy, and chase him through the streets on the motor scooters. Try not to wreck, although you can't catch him anyway and he escapes by boat. Pick up a key card he dropped, which has a Black Widow on it.

19) Back at the museum, you have a package waiting that contains information. By x-ray-ing the painting of the Starry Night, you will find a message from the Museum Fantastic's curator, who is on Early Poptropica Island.

Off to Early Poptropica

20) Take the blimp to Early Poptropica and go to the Art Museum. You meet the curator who says that a famous thief is threatening the world's greatest artwork. She gives you a key to some unknown lock, and you return to Counterfeit island to search.

In the Countryside

21) Go to the mysterious locked cottage of the Inspector, who is probably intended to be the Chief Inspector (the sign is supposed to say "Veuve Noire" - Black Widow in French). The key from the curator fits the door!

22) Inside are a locked chest (a dummy item) and a strange painting. The sidewalk artist said that he had done a painting for the Chief Inspector but without a frame. Peel back the corner, and it's the stolen "Scream" from the museum.
(Lights go out and you are noisily subdued.)

In the Lair of the Black Widow

24) You are tied up and questioned by the Black Widow, notorious art thief (it's the lady Inspector, but you saw that coming). She leaves, and you talk to the shady guy, who turns out to be her henchman, who she has now betrayed. Scoot yourself backward in your chair, so you can get untied.

25) Enter the guarded room, move along the lower level to pass the guards, then climb back up behind one of them. You can now jump up as a female guard turns away, trailing her quietly until you reach the large chair at far right. Springing onto it, you reach the top door.

26) The Black Widow key card opens the door and you and the shady guy confront the Widow. Go to the large cranked lift at far left to get Shady Guy up to catch her.

27) Before you can get there, the Widow begins trashing valuable artwork from her loot. You will have to save the art from destruction at the same time as you crank the handle to raise the lift. Jump up to catch it, as she throws four pieces at a time. After each set of four, she throws small bombs down to distract you, so you can only spend part of that time cranking the lift up. If the value of lost items goes over $1 million, you have to start over. After about 8 or 9 sets of items, you should have the lift fully cranked.

28) Shady Guy (probably hoping for a lighter sentence) captures the Black Widow, and the game is over.

The passageways are open to the surface now, and the curator meets you at the museum to give you the Island Medallion! (The museum had cleverly hidden priceless art behind phony walls.)

Arrive on Counterfeit Island. Go right to the Inn, climb up to get the torn piece of the dragon picture, near the upper right of the roof.
Go right to Downtown. Get a green balloon at the Clown Store.
Go right to the Countryside. Give the balloon to the crying kid. (oops!)
Go left to Downtown. In the trash at the Underground Tour, the right can has tickets in it.
Go left to Main Street. The guy at the Internet Cafe lost the tickets, and gives you one. (Character was originally supposed to be female!)
Go to the tour. In the big dome underground is another dragon picture piece.
Exit at the Docks. There is a shady character there who tells you about the museum job. Find two more dragon pieces (behind guy and on the boat.
Go right to the Museum. On the roof is the 5th dragon picture piece.
Enter the Museum and apply for the job. Swap the paintings that are in the wrong place. (Middle in Upper Left to Right on Upper Right, to Right on Lower Right, to Middle on Lower Left, to Middle on Upper Left)
Take the Forgery tutorial : The X-ray painting has drawings underneath.* The forged painting has a different signature. The Moon painting has stars showing thru the darkened half. On the paint tests, the small square will flash the proper chemical color, and you quickly click the same colored beaker above. (1= Green-Red-Blue-Red 2 = Red-Green-Blue-Blue 3 = Blue-Red-Blue-Green)
Get the key to the Supply Room. Go through the Statue Room and visit the Video Surveillance set-up in Security.
Open the Supply Room to find the 6th and final dragon picture piece.
Leave the museum. It is night-time. Go to the Docks where the shady guy waits. Enter the Underground and go to the secret tunnel entrance. It is a board ladder just past the chain climbing area.
Match the dragon picture to the 8 movable parts of the face. This opens the lock, and you enter the Museum supply room.
Duck past the Security room, and dodge the lasers by hiding behind the statues.
Find "The Scream" and climb the light to guard it.
GET ARRESTED. YOU WERE CAUGHT TRYING TO STEAL IT!
It is next morning at the police station. Take the lie detector test to prove you were framed.
Seek out the missing Security Guard. He is at the Clown Store downtown.
Take his time card to the Museum and locate the true thief on tape : The shady guy.
Print his photo and canvass the town looking for information on him. The mimes know him and whistle at you. They are telling you he's in the Jazz Club.
Chase the shady guy on the motor scooter, and don't crash into the open holes. He gets away, dropping the Black Widow key card.
Return to the museum for a special delivery message. The museum's curator is waiting for you in Early Poptropica.
Fly in the blimp to Early Poptropica, and go to the Art Museum. The curator of Museum Fantastique tells you of a plot to steal the world's art treasures, and gives you a key.
Fly back to Counterfeit Island, and go to the house in the Countryside. The key opens the door there.
Find the missing "Scream" behind a phony canvas on the wall.
GET DISCOVERED AND KNOCKED OUT.
Wake up in the underground lair of the Black Widow. (Surprise, it's the lady police inspector.) You and her former henchman (the shady guy) are tied up. When she leaves, scoot your chair over (click and drag mouse), and once you are beside him, he will free you.
Dodge your way through the lair, jumping up behind the female guard to reach the springy chair and then the key card door.
The final battle : You have to simultaneously save the thrown art treasures while you crank the lift platform for Shady Guy to reach the Black Widow. If more than $1 million gets by you, you have to start over. (Crank the lift while she is enraged and throwing bombs at you.)
Exit the lair and meet the returned curator, who will award you the Island Medallion! (More famous artwork is safely displayed thereafter in the Museum.)

Click on "more in poptropica" above and then click on the one called How Do You Beat Counterfeit on Poptropica asked by Roeses79 in Poptropica.  It is really detailed  (well pretty much)!  It might be the first one... It has a braided hair girl on the picture with a red shirt.

Well first, I wanted to say that you CAN find all the pieces of the picture. I found them all! But, also the Thief dropped something. A red card to be exact. But I don't know where to use it! Somebody help!

First you give the boy in country side a green balloon. Then you go to the internet cafe and talk to the computer geek  ask "is their any thing I can do to help" he'll say he lost the tickets to the cave and that if you find them you can have one, so you walk up and dow the streets and when ever you come to a trash can mouse over it and if the mouse goes blue (white inside) click find the tickets and report back to him he'll give you one. Then collect all of the picture pices you can (their will be one you can't find) then do the tour go out the exit or you will not be able to move on. Their will be a guy talk with him and do what he says. Then get the final pice of the picure and go back to him he'll will have opend the gate exit go up this brown broken ladder and make your picture look like the statue (pay atention to deatail) then enter open the closet with your key and when the security gard walks out of side run. Then in the next room avoid the res lined by hideing behind the statue, and when your finialy in the main room click on the picutre. Thats all I'm up to hope it helps you out

Get the tour tickets out of the trash can.  Go to the clown store get a green balloon go to the country side, then give the crying boy the balloon.  He will float up in the air.  Go to the coffee shop and the TV will be showing the boy.  Give the man the tickets, and he will give you one.  Go on the tour, and when you get done, go talk to the man who's trying to get your attention.  He will tell you to get a job at the museum.  When your at the museum, talk to the guy on the second level.  Arrange the pictures, then go into the room where the guy was standing.  Once you done doing everything in there, return to the man near the exit of the tour tunnel at the dock.  He will tell you to watch out for the criminal.  That's all I know.  Hope I helped!

Well... You can find all the pictures, then when you reach th exit a strange man will get your attention...beware!!!!He is the bad guy...any ways...listen to him do what he says!!!!Now...you are thinking "why trust the bad guy??"...because he will get you to the museum, and it's the rules, so...just get a job at the museum, and the game will go on normally, then when it comes to the laser part just move with the laser and hide behind the statues so the laser doesn't get you!!Then you get caught and go to jail, then you go through a lie detector and you have to answer all questions right so the inspector will trust you, then you have to find the missing security guy, and then he will give you a paper if the time he left the museum(I don;t know why) and then go back to the museum go to the security room, then go look at the surveillance camera and the inspector will set the time and then you have to press a button that says print screen when she pauses on the thief, and then go around the town looking an showing that picture of the bad guy, and just to save you time, I will give you 3 tips to help you find him faster...1.don't ask the mimes. 2.don't ask the clown on the roof. And 3.He is in the Jazz place...but, don't go through the door on the wall, go to the one almost under the ground, you talk to the girl on the left, and she will say "their is a creepy  dude on the other side", then you follow him out the door on the wall, and then you are going to get on a scooter(avoid the obstacles), and he will leave behind, accidently a red car pick it up, and their will be a spider drawing on it!!!!That's pretty much were I'm.Hope you find your way through
