IKEA walk-thru

In the computer game world, you can often find "walk-thru" scenarios online which tell you step by step how to navigate your way through the game in order to win or complete it. I remember running across these for games like Zork back in my BBS days with a Commodore 64 and 300 baud modem.

Recently The Morning News released a walk-thru designed to let you win at IKEA:

============================================================= WORLD TWO: SHOWROOMS =============================================================

You start this world armed only with a UNIVERSAL FURNITURE-ASSEMBLY ALLEN WRENCH. This is the weakest weapon in IKEA: You will have to hit a person 16 times with it to kill them. So your primary goal in this level is to find more lethal means of dispatching your enemies.

As you enter the SHOWROOM, perform a rolling dodge to the left. Grab a free PAPER TAPE MEASURE and a handful of IKEA EMBLAZONED GOLF PENCILS from the kiosk near the entryway. The PENCILS serve quite well as ranged weapons, but it will take some time to master their use. Before venturing further in the world, stand at the kiosk and practice hurling GOLF PENCILS at patrons as they enter the SHOWROOM. Remember: Hitting the eyes does triple damage.

Full walk-thru here. Good luck furniture adventurers!
