### What do you do when binary bard tries to operate the clock on Super Villain Island?

There are 4 power connections on the clock that spark briefly
when both hands of the clock connect to the numbers 3, 6, 9, or 12
(for example, 3 o'clock, or 9 o'clock). Use the Stopwatch when the
hands are there and you will short out the clock. After 3 times,
the clock disappears and you receive the Astrolabe Totem.

### How many times does the minute hand of a clock overlap with the hour hand from 10am to 12am?

23 times in all.
Note that from 11:00 to 11:59 (am or pm) the hands can never
overlap. Thus from 10am to 11:59am, the hands will overlap just
once at around 10:54am. The hands will overlap again at exactly
12:00pm (noon). And from 12:01pm to 12:am (midnight) the hands will
overlap another 11 times.
The following times are the approximate overlapping times.
10:54am
