That's the classic 11-keg position where everyone gets stuck, but rotated. To continue from there, you would have to have the south trapdoor intact, which is impossible as that's where you entered the room.

So unfortunately you'll need to start again. But here's a tip. By far the most common mistake in this room is to be worried about pushing a keg into the middle too soon. But you will have to do this sooner or later, which means you may as well do it at once -- you're not actually reducing the possibilities by doing so.

Never mind 11. I'm still stuck at 28 kegs. I can shift the first five - 2 by getting on to the island, then 3 more free ones which happen to open the path to the beginning of the bomb fuse - and then I'm stuck.

Well theoretically there's one more I could push into the central X (diagonally from the SW), but it would then gum up the whole system and make the centre mass of bombs immovable, surely?

I'm stuck at 23 kegs. Here's the status, with - as the blank platform, B as beethro, O as orb, and K as keg.

------B
KKKKO--
KOKKKK-
-KK-KK-

Obviously, the north trapdoor was already used. What do I do?

edit: H&S SYNDROOOOOME. Now I'm at the infamous 11 kegs.
