Case File No. 234 - Deadline: July 31, 2017

We've got an awesome new Case File for our July mid-month challenge!

Don't forget that you still have the whole month for our beautiful Major Case File too. It's a perfect Case File for documenting all the lovely summer memories you're creating.

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. 234.

CASE FILE 

With July being vacation time, we thought we'd celebrate summer relaxing this month. With that in mind, we've got a delightful Scene inspired by this camping illustration by Miriam Bos, an artist from the Netherlands who specializes in colorful and quirky pattern designs and illustrations.

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:
