Behind Closed Doors 4: Balrog's Day Out (Behind_Closed_Doors_4.txt)

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS 4
by the Balrog (John Wilson, George E. Hoyle)
Zenobi Software
Spectrum 48

As the instructions state, this is a game with many red herrings, 
though some cleverness is needed where it really counts. You basically 
need a coin to get into the toilets, something to substitute for toilet 
paper, and a ring (for which you get a hint much later in the game). 
Doing anything else wastes time, though logically speaking you should 
find the other ring). 

Hint: While you "take" the Gazzette, you don't actually "have" it, so 
you can't use it for toilet paper.

As usual, you need to find a bathroom.
