Play Plank Sawing
This challenge is to cut planks as quickly and neatly as possible. Using the mouse, left-click to grab the saw and drag it along the BLACK LINE in the wood plank. This can be straight, diagonal, corner or even zig-zag.
The closer you can stay to the black line, the better your score. If you stay on the black line, you only need three cuts. With "Great," you just slightly went off that black line, with "OK," you were all over the shaded area of the board. If you go into the unshaded area of the board, you'll hear splintering wood, and the text "Terrible - board destroyed" will appear in red.
A mini-picture in the upper right will display the next kind of cut that will be needed.
Some pirates suggest moving quickly once you have the saw lined up. Any adjustments or shaking of the mouse could result in an 'OK' or broken board.
