Case File No. 236 - Deadline: August 31, 2017

Here we are in the middle of August! How did that happen so quickly?

We're loving all the lovely purple-touched layouts we're seeing for Major Case File No. 235. Don't forget that that Case File stays open for the entire month, so if you haven't yet had a chance to play with that challenge, you still have plenty of time.

So, are you ready for the new challenge? Grab you forensics kits, CSI players, and get ready for some serious sleuthing as we open Case File No. 236.

CASE FILE

Did you know that August is also known as "Arrr-gust"--International Pirate's Month? With that in mind, we've got a whimsical Scene by illustrator Cristian Turdera.

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