Hey all,

i guess this is the longest or worst achievement and i belive it will take some time, before we'll see a complete guide. So why not work together and create a list. :)

I managed to find them all. I will go ahead and post the locations here, but won't do the solution, as I only made note of locations and not instructions on some of the harder ones (i.e, puzzles). I know I will get downvoted for it, so I will just post the rest of the locations here.

Happy Hunting!

Hopefully I didn't mix up any of those locations/names. My handwriting was a little questionable in a couple of places.

I'm not sure about #48-49. I searched every area of the funhouse and could not find either gnome.

They are definitely in the fun house.

For the one on the 1st floor, you have to take one of the 'wrong' paths and it will lead to a storage room with a gnome.

For the other, it may be the 4th floor. It is the floor where you have to 'go back' to find the path forward. One of the paths will lead to a small brown room with a gnome.

Yeah, funhouse 1st floor gnome is in the 5th square room. Instead of going up into the 6th square, take a right and you'll find the storage room

Johnny also correctly said the 2nd gnome was on the 5th floor. From the first purple room, go left and then go back the way you came once in the green room. You'll end up in a small brown room that has the gnome

Quick question, how do you get Gnome 17? The board says something about lucky number 7 and the computer has a ton numbers on it. You have to unlock the door. Thanks

Read the journal and match the number 7 to where the X's are. I had to take pictures to help me remember.

5-7-2-5-7 > 7-3-7-9-7 > 7-7-9-2-7 > 8-7-7-4-2 > 1-4-8-4-7

I've posted the list as a solution. I'll add more info the next hours and days. Feel free to ask questions or improve some directions. :)

Thanks to everyone for compiling all this info. Is there a point of no return for collecting these or can you clean up after the story?
