In our previous guide for the Wild Rose Tall Tale, we covered how to Find the Chest of Memories. In this section, we will explain how to use the Quest Book to find The Spice Box. There is also a sister article to this one to help you find the Music Box. You can find these two objects in any order. However, since there is such a wide selection of items that these two items can spawn on, we have split the guide into two parts.
Sea of Thieves | Wild Rose Tall Tale | Spice Box Guide and Locations
You will first need to find the Chest of Memories if you want to start your search for George's Spice Box. If you haven't obtained this Chest yet, you can follow the appropriate link below. Alternatively, if you're looking for help with the other essential items or the Hidden Journals, you can also find those links below.

If you wish to decipher the book yourself and are just looking for help understanding how to use the Quest Book, read Option One below. If you are stuck or don't want to spend time solving the clues and instead just want to know where to look, read Option Two.
Option One: How to Find George's Spice Box on Your Own
The page that mentions George's Spice Box will also say it was hidden in the same spot as one of the previous stories. This is the biggest hint as to where you can find it. Rose will reflect fondly about this spice box and state that she wanted to bury it on the island associated with that memory. This hint may be something like where we had our first kiss or where we caught the pig.
Figuring out which is the correct island is usually the easy part. The hard part is figuring out what to do once you get there. However, the Quest book continues to provide more clues, but these you'll have to decipher. Sometimes it will show you an exact picture of where the spots are, but sometimes you'll have to follow the instructions mentioned in the story.
If you have reached the island and cannot find the location shown or mentioned in the rest of the story, you can use the list below to see each story's exact dig spots.
Option Two: George's Spice Box Locations
SPOILER WARNING: This section contains the solutions to the Music Box's locations. Do not read it if you were hoping to decipher the hints and clues yourself.
Since there is a selection of five islands that can house the spice box, we cannot tell you exactly where to go. However, we have provided the entire list of possible locations, and descriptions of how to reach them. Use the images below to find the spice box, and continue with the rest of the story!
Doing What I Do Best!
If you are brought to the story Doing What I Do Best! to find the spice box, you will be headed to Boulder Cay. This is also one of the possible locations to find the Chest of Memories. If you see that this story is mentioned when you get the chest, take a look at the other pages to see if you can get two birds with one stone! George's Spice Box is located almost right in the middle of the island. You'll need to walk a few steps Northeast of the patch of trees and grass and dig there.
Our First Kiss
If Rose mentions that she hid the spice box where they shared their first kiss, you're going to sail to Lagoon of Whispers. You need to match the image in the story with an area on the island. The spot is located on the Northwest section, a bit South of the dock. You will be digging in the sand between two patches of grass. Use the image above for reference if you are stuck.
The Pig Chase
If Rose says she buried George's Spice Box where they caught the pig, you'll be headed to Salty Sands. For this one, it's less about using landmarks to find the location and instead finding the angle of the actual land. You can see the small patch of land between the two islands in the picture and on the map. You need to head to the beach on the northern islet and dig on the beach that faces that patch of land between them!
The Day We Found our Pendants!
George and rose found their pendants on Sea Dog's Rest. Even though the island is small, it can be a challenged to determine exactly where to dig. There are no significant landmarks in the picture for the story, so you have to compare the rocks and trees in the book to what you see on the island. We have pinpointed the precise location of the picture in our image above. You will need to be on the West beach and dig just off the grass. Use the image above for guidance.
We Survived our First Ambush!
In the book, their first ambush was located on Cannon Cove. To find the Spice Box's dig spot, you need to look for the area that George and Rose are standing in the picture. This is another one that doesn't have any helpful landmarks, so you need to use the rocks and foliage in the picture for reference. You will find this dig spot on the East beach, just barely north of the middle. Dig in the spot they're standing in the picture, which is right next to some salvage and grass.
There are two possibilities for where you might go next in this guide. If you used this guide first before looking for the Music Box, you can follow this link for that guide: The Music Box. However, if you have already found the Music Box, you'll now go to the guide that explains How to Find George, Rose, and Rooke. Now is also an excellent time to start looking for the Hidden Journals associated with this Tall Tale!
