Case File No. 242 - Deadline: November 30, 2018

We're back with our mid-month challenge, and we've got a serene new Case File for you! Don't forget, our first November challenge stays open for the whole month too.

AND did you hear the news? We've got a design team call running AND we've given you a sneak peek at our exciting new change in the Case File for 2018. Starting in January (and we'll give you a chance to try it out this month), we're making the challenge wide open for interpretation, whereby you can draw your own inspiration from The Scene, however you'd like! But don't worry--if you like the clues the traditional way we do it, that will be an option for you too.

So, are you ready for the new challenge? Grab you forensics kits, CSI players, and get ready for some serious sleuthing as we open Major Case File No. 242.

CASE FILE

We're mixing things up in November with the themes for our Case Files. Did you know that November is I Love to Write Month? We found a beautiful Scene at the design blog Lushlee.


Remember to scroll all the way down to the bottom of this reveal post for RGB codes, color descriptions, and more detailed explanations of the Evidence and Testimony prompts.

For our Russian players, Detective Anastasia has translated our Case File into Russian:
