From Box Back
We need your help - on what could be the greatest crimes of all time!
Carmen Sandiego and her nefarious gang are at it again, pinching priceless objects from all over the world, then escaping to other eras. We not only don't know where she is - we don't even know when she is!
You can use the Agency's Chronoskimmer to travel through time. And there's a paperback copy of the New American Desk Encyclopedia in your locker - full of timely information to help you crack the case. (Please don't leave it in the Dark Ages like Agent Henderson did last week.)
We've narrowed it down to some time between 400 A.D. and the 1950s. Talk to witnesses and informers, collect clues, track Carmen and her 15 colleagues-in-crim around the globe and across the ages. Close in on your suspect, then have your Capture Robot go after 'em - but make sure you've got a warrant!
Now get going! Time is money, after all.
... The Chief
P.S. -- Remember, you're traveling through time warps - dress appropriately. Good luck... we can't rest until Carmen is doing time!
