The precious MacGuffin has been stolen from the Museum of Everything, and it's up to you and your team of detectives to solve the case and catch the culprit! Start by scouring the Museum for clues. All players work together to search through rooms of the museum and find the five hidden symbols on each card. As a team, describe each symbol to the player with the codex who will align it to match the symbols on the card.

Follow the Clues!

If all the symbols match, you've uncovered a clue! Flip over a clue and use the barcodes to match it against the culprit tile to find out valuable information about the crook.

Narrow Down Suspects

Based on what you've learned from the clue, eliminate suspects that don't match the culprit tile. Keep gathering clues by searching through more scenes until you've only got one suspect left.

Catch the Culprit

Once you've narrowed it down to one suspect, it's time to make an arrest! Accuse a suspect and flip over the culprit tile to see if you're right.

If the suspect and culprit match, you've caught the culprit and cracked the case!
