How to Get There
On your way to the Cauldron of Rock, take the first turn right. The Mechaful Arcade can be found just behind the Darkmoon Faire roller coaster.
Unlock the Darkmoon Arcade Console for the day (requires 1 Darkmoon Game Token).
Then, you can choose between one of six mini-games. All games will place a buff on you. Right-click it to stop playing a game.
The game is a throwback to the popular Minesweeper video game.
This mysterious arcane console lights up under the touch of your hand. Page after page of instructions flitter across the central panel. The language is unclear, but the iconography is self-apparent: Lots of skulls.
This is HexSweeper, a most dangerous game wherein one must traverse an arcane minefield and identify all of the booby-trapped areas. Instant death rewards the slightest misstep.
You wonder why anyone would want to do this for fun.
You do your best to interpret the pictographs and ignore the persistent warnings about instantaneous death. The HexSweeper console will generate a hexagonal grid, sensitive to one’s footsteps. Several of the hexagons are “mined” and will obliterate the player. Alternatively, stepping on a “safe” tile will reveal the count of adjacent mines. The object is to “clear” the field by revealing all of the safe tiles and by marking all of the dangerous ones with the little white flags provided. It’s unclear why the game feels it necessary to murder players who step on the wrong tile. Multiple levels are available.
Click a tile once to place the flag or twice when you’re not 100% sure there’s a mine (a gray question mark “?” will appear above the selected field).
If you step on the wrong tile, you will die (Stepped on a Mine) revealing all the mines.
The rules are simple! Match 3 or more runes for points. More than 3 and you get bonus points! If you manage to get 100,000 points, you unlock an additional level of difficulty. If this is set up correctly…
The following difficulties are available:
Rune Matching – Easy
Rune Matching – Normal
Rune Matching – Hard
Rune Matching – Hardest
Rune Matching – Harderest
The game can be reset anytime by clicking on the cube and you win when you earn 100,000 points.
BULL-E (throwback to WALL-E)
The idea is simple. The game is hard! Uncross the wires to fix poor BULL-E’s circuits. There is only one difficulty level: Pretty easy to insane-o hard! Give up and you have to start from the beginning!
The game gets increasingly difficulty depending on the number of wires you uncross.
Barrels o’ Fun
Keep your eye on the barrel! One barrel will flash at the start of each round. Remember which one it is, and pick it when they’re all done moving around.
Click on Start a Round and remember which barrel flashed at the beginning of a round to move to the next round.
The number of barrels and their speed will increase with rounds.
Remembery (also known as Shell Game, a Tortollan Seekers World Quest in BfA)
Flip the shells. Remember where they are, and match the pairs.
Only one difficulty of Remembery is available.
To develop harmony with the elements, one must study and understand the interactions between them. The totem matrix is an ancient training method, a puzzle that will challenge one’s mind and spirit.
The object of the exercise is to water totems. Simply touch a totem to invoke it. Know that all things are connected, a lesson invaluable in this puzzle… as in life!
You will be presented with a five-by-five matrix of elemental totems. Some are fire, some water. Your objective is to change them all to water totems. Simply touch a totem to flip its elemental alignment. Ah, but the elements are connected to one another! Flipping a totem will also change the four totems adjacent to it. Through patience, trial, and error, you should be able to coax all of the totems into water totems. You can reset the puzzle if you fond yourself completely lost.
The goal is to transform all fire into water totems. Multiple stages are available.
