Stacking Walkthrough

Stacking is a adventure game from Tim Schafer’s studio Double Fine, centered around Russian-style stacking dolls. The gameplay consists of old-school adventure puzzles, with a twist: puzzles can be solved in multiple different ways, by combining different dolls using the game’s titular mechanic.

Featuring a stylish Victorian aesthetic and Double Fine’s distinctive brand of irreverent humor, the game is available on Xbox Live and Playstation Network Plus. Despite the multiple solutions some of the puzzles can get tricky, so we’ve prepared a full walkthrough to help fledgling Stackers. We’ve also got lists of trophies and achievements, and a cheats page that collects all our Stacking information.

  • Part 1 – End the Train Strike

    1. When you first gain control of little Charlie Blackmore, your first objective will be to head out into the train station and locate the three members of the Train Guild.
    2. Head up the stairs to trigger a fly through cutscene that shows you the area up ahead.
    3. Continue forward and test out your stacking abilities. By pressing the “Y” button while behind a doll that is one size bigger, you can stack into them, gaining control of their body and their unique ability.
    4. Keep on stacking until you gain control of a medium sized doll. Talk to the gatekeeper to learn about unstacking by pressing “B.” Doing so will give you control of the last doll you were in control of.
    5. Head toward the middle of the lobby and look for a doll with a key on its head. Stack into it and then use its special ability to unlock the door the guard was guarding.
    6. With the door unlocked, you can now continue along the path into the main concourse. Keep on head straight ahead until you’re stopped by a cutscene.
    7. Challenge 1 – Empty the Lounge


      Method #1 – Fan-tastic:

    8. To the right of the door to the lounge is a tool rack with an engineery looking doll nearby. Stack into him and then use his ability to remove the fan to the right of the door.
    9. Head through the duct to reach the lounge, triggering the host to make everyone leave on account of an uninvited guest.
    10. Method #2 – Unauthorized Entry:

    11. For the first way to complete this challenge, look for the medium sized doll with blonde hair. Stack into her and you should get the ability to “seduce”
    12. Seduce the guard in front of the door to the lounge and lead him away.
    13. Stack out of the girl doll and then quickly move around to stack in to the guard.
    14. Unlock the door, proceed inside, and the lounge boss will kick everyone out.
    15. Method #3 – The Fug of War:

    16. Head down the two sets of stairs near the lounge and you’ll reach a pair of bathrooms. Somewhere around here should be a fat, bald doll with side burns and a mustache. Stack into him and head back to the lounge.
    17. Position the doll’s back toward the ventillation fan and let one loose to cause everyone inside to evacuate the lounge.
    18. Now that you’ve completed all of the ways to beat this first challenge, stack into all three engineers and bring them to the train to move on to the next level!

    Part 2 – The Gilded Steam Ship

    1. All of the challenges for this part are available right from the start, so it’s a matter of which ones you want to tackle first. Your goal is to pester four important passengers to the point where they demand to see the captain.
    2. Challenge 1 – Cause Chaos at the Safari

      Method #1 – Misfire!:

    3. The first and one of the more obvious ways of causing chaos at the safari is to stack into the doll that is handling the cannon.
    4. Cause the doll to fire a shot into the pipe to the left to get the watchman upset enough to call off the safari.
    5. Method #2 – Animauler:

    6. Next, look for the large doll with the strong arm. When you take control of him, you’ll be able to give things a “Proper Uppercut.” This doll is actually one of the more useful ones in the game, so make sure you recognize what he looks like.
    7. Search the safari area for three lion decorations with band-aids on them. They are usually being guarded by dolls with lion masks.
    8. Break all three of them with an uppercut and the watchman will close the show.
    9. Method #3 – Un-Bear-able:

    10. Take control of a small doll and then look around the area surrounding the safari for a seagull doll. Stack into it and then use its ability to fly to its nest.
    11. Once perched, move into the room and look for a bear doll. Stack into the bear and then barge out of the room and crash the safari with your intimidating roar.
    12. Method #4 – Penny Lane:

    13. For this final method, you’ll need to gain control of the bald doll in the black suit. You can usually find him in front of one of the lion decorations, in a line that allows you to stack pretty much directly into him.
    14. Once you’ve got the target doll, turn your back to the safari and look for two dolls standing next to a zebra decoration. Use this doll’s ability to yell “Move it!” to get the two to move the zebra doll in front of the tandem bicycle’s path.
    15. Stack out and quickly catch up to the bicycle. Stack into the smallest one and then continue stacking until you’re in control of the driver. Continually press “A” to build up speed and crash into the zebra.
      Challenge 2 – Sabotage the Exhibit

    1. You’ll find the exhibit on the first floor of the ship, the same floor as the safari. Once inside you’ll trigger a cutscene that shows all of the various exhibits you can sabotage.

    13. Stack into a variety of dolls inside the exhibit until you’re large enough to stack into the gilded sarcophagus in the box at the back.

    15. Method #5 – Curd of the Ancients

    16. For this method, the first thing you need to do is gain control of a medium sized doll with a violin.
    17. Take her to the Pied Piper, who is located on the side opposite of the exhibit.
    18. Play your violin in front of the Piper to get him to come down, allowing you to stack into him.
    19. Head up the stairs to the second floor of the ship and follow the path around to the side of the cafeteria. There should be some trash with a bunch of rats nearby.
    20. Use the Piper’s song to lead the rats to the exhibit, where they will proceed to feast upon the cheese statue.

    Challenge 3 – Stop the Caviar Service

    1. Head upstairs to the second floor now and proceed into the cafeteria where you’ll run into a cutscene. Your goal here is to mess with the caviar production so Madame Habitant leaves the buffet and joins the rest of the complainers.

  • Method #5 – Summons to Appear

  • Stack into various dolls until you’re big enough to stack into the host.
  • Move to the host’s desk and use his ability to call the caviar chef out of the kitchen.

    14. The makeover artist will give the child a crayon hat. Now head back up stairs to the map room and use your new ability to draw all over the maps.

    The Grand Mutiny

  • Now that you have caused all four characters to complain to the captain, you can head through the small gap in the wall to the right of the map room. Stack into these characters, one at a time, and use each of their abilities to get rid of each guard along the way. Eventually, you’ll use the last character, Madamme Habitant, to intimidate the captain and cause him to stop the ship immediately.
