Where can I get the enchanted eyepatch on Casual Mode in Return to Monkey Island?

You’ll find the eyepatch in a display case at the Museum of Pirate Lore. But you’ll need to do some work if you’re going to be able to steal it. First, pop to see Wally the map maker, and take both monocles from the little box on the counter. Once you have both, combine them in your inventory to make a double monocle.

Go to the Pirate Museum and use the double monocle on the lock of the display case. Take the serial number you get from the lock to the Locksmith in the High Street, who will make you the key you need. While in the Locksmiths, be sure to also grab the crackers from the counter.

Once done, she’ll give you the Enchanted Eyepatch you need to get onto LeChuck’s ship.
