The desks are gifts by Queen Victoria. They are made of a ship that was from Spain, that got lost in the Arctic, but was found a rescued by whalers. The ship was summoned to England, where it was retired. When retired, Queen Victoria had to desks made out of the wood. The Twin Resolute Desks. The desks are actually "twins", but they both share an important secret. They both have half a map, to Cibola, a city made out of solid gold, which is told to be under Mount Rushmore.

The twin Resolute Desks' are puzzled in a way that it's drawers act as tumblers, like that of in a safe. The combination to the safe is told by urban legend to be on the torch of the Statue of Liberty, in Paris, France. (not the one in New York City) The combination is told to be 1876, a year, but of what is unknown.

Once you get the combination for the Statue of Liberty, you must go to the Buckingham Palace, in the United Kingdom. The desk in located in the Queen's Den, like the Oval Office in the Whitehouse. Lay under the drawers, on the bottom will be numbers, pull the number out of each drawer, to make the number 1876. When you do this, the corners of the desk will pop out, twist the corner piece to the side, until it no longer goes, then push the corner back in. When done to all sides, a compartment pops out of the desk, this is were your secret map is hidden. But this is only half a map, the other half is located it the Whitehouse, in the Oval Office, to be correct.

Go to Washington, D.C. Go to the Whitehouse, but remember, it will be very difficult to get into the Whitehouse, once you figure out how to get in the Oval Office, go to the desk. Open the drawers like you did in Buckingham Palace. Here the compartment will just pop out, you won't have to turn the corners. The problem now is the other half of the map is no longer there, at one point, a president found the secret compartment, and placed the information in a secret book, The Presidents Secret Book. Find this, and you have your map to Cibola. Now go and TRY! (not really)
