Mutternot's Tales is a timed blackout Floor 6 challenge introduced in Series 4.
The Caretaker's Explanation of the Game Edit
A place for everything and everything in its place. Miss Mutternot is not happy. The Tower Library is completely con-fuddled. Unfortunates must carefully put the books back in their rightful place. But, the Tower is prone to power cuts and someone is trying to upset the librarian. One of them cannot be trusted.
The room is themed as a library, with shelves around the room filled with books. In the front of the room are tables where the Unfortunates have to assemble the line of books.
Challenge Character Edit
The challenge character is Miss Mutternot, the spooky librarian. She has a bad temper, and screams when a blackout happens during the challenge. Miss Mutternot also appeared in the Series 2-3 challenge "Spooked". She is played by Helen Evans.
This challenge is played in a timed "blackout" format. The Unfortunates have to work together to assemble the long line of books before the time limit of 90 seconds runs out. Much like every other blackout-based challenge, there will be a couple of times during the challenge where a blackout will happen, during which The Voice will instruct the Saboteur to knock the books over. In order to pass the challenge, all the books must be standing in place when the time runs out. If not, the challenge will be failed.
