## Explanations and solutions to the full Crime Scene: Brooklyn 2002 game

## Puzzle A B C D E F G H I J Endgame

**Puzzle A**

**You have read Part 1 of the story, and revealed the Evidence card marked “Start”. You have found a ‘phone’ in cell 14. Now, take Evidence Card 14, and solve Puzzle A.**

On the phone dial, you can see numbers and three letters for each of them (2 – ABC, 3 – DEF, 4 – GHI, 5 – JKL). Based this order, you can figure out that the following number-letter combinations are 6 – MNO, 7 – PQR, 8 – STU… Exchange the letters of MEET + BOB with the matching numbers, and you will end up with the equation 6338 + 262. The solution is 6600.

**Follow the cypher to the storybook. Next, find a ‘hat’ in cell 6, and take Evidence Card 6.**

**Puzzle B**

**You followed the cypher and found a ‘hat’ in cell 6. Now take Evidence Card 6.**

Evidence Card 6 guides you to search for a ‘woman’ in the Crime Scene image. She is in cell 12, so take Evidence Card 12. As you turn it, you can see that it has three black-and-white strings on it. This means that you need three extra cards to solve Puzzle B. The strings start from the dragon tattoo on the woman’s upper arm. Can you see similar, tattoo-like pictures in the Crime Scene image? They are in cells 3, 17 and 24, so take the matching Evidence Cards.

The Ace of Hearts shows you that you are supposed to count the number of hearts on the three cards, but first you need to fit them together with the help of the club symbols. Do notice the two tiny hearts on the Jack’s cheek. They make the total number of hearts 17, which is also the solution for this Puzzle.

**Follow the cypher to the storybook. Next, find an ‘envelope’ in cell 13, and take Evidence Card 13.**

**Puzzle C**

**You followed the cypher and found an ‘envelope’ in cell 13. Now take Evidence Card 13.**

Evidence Card 13 has a black-and-white string on it, so you need to find an extra card to solve Puzzle C. There is a big ‘S’ symbol on the envelope. Can you see anything similar in the Crime Scene image? There is paper bag in the big chair, in cell 16.

The symbol on the corner of this Evidence Card tells you that you need to add up the number of some cells. There is a receipt in the bag, with a list of items. Can you find them in the Crime Scene image? The toothbrush in cell 6; the cigarette lighter is in cell 25; the nail polish in cell 14; and the necklace is in cell 17.

When you add up the numbers of the cells, you will get the solution: 62.

**Follow the cypher to the storybook. Next, find an ‘umbrella’ in cell 18, and take Evidence Card 18.**

**Puzzle D**

**You followed the cypher and found an ‘umbrella’ in cell 18. Now take Evidence Card 18.**

Evidence Card 18 guides you to search for ‘reading glasses’ in the Crime Scene image. They are in cell 30, so take Evidence Card 30 and solve Puzzle D.

Each number on the bottom row is the sum of the three numbers above it, in the same column. Fill in the blanks to be able to calculate the missing number on the bottom line. Write ‘1’ in the first column, then ‘3’ in the second column, and ‘25’ in the fifth column. Now, you need to find a logic for each row. On the 1^{st} row, each number is doubled (1 – 2 – 4 – 8 – 16). On the 2^{nd} row you find the squares of the numbers 1-5 (1 – 4 – 9 – 16 – 25). On the 3^{rd} row, the solution is 1+2+3+4+5… Start with **1** and add 2 to make **3**. Then, add 3 to that to make **6**, etc. (1 – 3 – 6 – 10 – 15). Now, the middle column should read 4-9-6. Add up the numbers to get 19, which is the solution.

**Follow the cypher to the storybook. Next, find a ‘magazine’ in cell 21, and take Evidence Card 21.**

**Puzzle E**

**You followed the cypher and found a ‘magazine’ in cell 21. Now take Evidence Card 21.**

Evidence Card 21 has two black-and-white strings on it, so you need to find two extra cards to solve Puzzle E. On this card, the strings are tacked to a picture of an Egyptian pyramid. Can you see a picture of a pyramid in the Crime Scene image? There is one on the wall, in cell 5. If you look closely, you can see that there is a blank space underneath it. Where is the framed picture missing from that spot? It is on the windowsill, in cell 15. Take the corresponding Evidence Cards.

The pictures in the two extra cards are almost identical. How many differences can you find? There are 7, which is also the solution to this Puzzle.

**Follow the cypher to the storybook. Next, find a ‘shoe’ in cell 22, and take Evidence Card 22.**

**Puzzle F**

**You followed the cypher and found a ‘shoe’ in cell 22. Now take Evidence Card 22.**

The symbol on the corner of this Evidence Card tells you that you need to add up the number of some cells.

The words ‘hairbrushes’ and ‘hairdryer’ have been underlined on the card. Try to find them in the Crime Scene image. The hairbrush is in cell 12, and the hairdryer is in cell 24. Now add up those numbers to get the solution: 36.

**Follow the cypher to the storybook. Next, find some ‘quarters’ in cell 25, and take Evidence Card 25.**

**Puzzle G**

**You followed the cypher and found some ‘quarters’ in cell 25. Now take Evidence Card 25.**

There are some coins on the Evidence Card. Look closely and you will see that one of them is fake – one of the letters in the word LIBERTY is turned the wrong way. The coin bears the year 1997, so the solution to this Puzzle is 1997.

**Follow the cypher to the storybook. Next, find a ‘cactus’ in cell 9, and take Evidence Card 9.**

**Puzzle H**

**You followed the cypher and found a ‘cactus’ in cell 9. Now take Evidence Card 9.**

Evidence Card 9 guides you to search for a ‘handprint’ in the Crime Scene image. It is in cell 7, so take Evidence Card 7 and solve Puzzle H.

Evidence Card 7 has two black-and-white strings on it, so you need to find two extra cards to solve Puzzle H.

The strings are tacked to the handprints. Can you see something in the Crime Scene image, that might relate to your hands – and of which there are two? Try the white dinner gloves. There is one in cell 27, and another on the curtain rail, in cell 4.

Place the cards beside each other. Notice the grey numbers 1 and 10 on the thumbs. With them, each finger gets a value from 1 to 10. The blood spatters form three arrows. The arrows are of different sizes and point to three different fingers – now figure out their numbers. The three grey question marks near the wrist give you the order for the numbers: small arrow (5), big arrow (2), medium arrow (8). The solution is 528.

**Follow the cypher to the storybook. Next, find a ‘glass’ in cell 29, and take Evidence Card 29.**

**Puzzle I**

**You followed the cypher and found a ‘glass’ in cell 29. Now take Evidence Card 29.**

Evidence Card 29 guides you to search for a ‘mirror’ in the Crime Scene image. It is in cell 1, so take Evidence Card 1 and solve Puzzle I.

Evidence Card 1 has three black-and-white strings on it, so you need to find three extra cards to solve Puzzle H. There is a clock drawn on the steamy mirror. Can you find other clocks in the Crime Scene image?They are in cells 19, 23 and 26.

Write the time shown on the alarm clock in the matching space on Evidence Card 26. Then do the same with the wrist watch. Note that the cells on the second row show the difference between the numbers below, but calculated as **normal 3-digit numbers, not as hours with 60 minutes**. Continuing the math like this, you reach the top space and the solution, which is 55.

**Follow the cypher to the storybook. Next, find a ‘pill bottle’ in cell 20, and take Evidence Card 20.**

**Puzzle J**

**You followed the cypher and found a ‘pill bottle’ in cell 20. Now take Evidence Card 20.**

Evidence Card 20 guides you to search for a ‘picture’ in the Crime Scene image. The framed painting is in cell 8 (the majority of the picture is in this cell), so take Evidence Card 8 and solve Puzzle J.

The symbol on the corner of this Evidence Card tells you that you need to add up the number of some cells.

For each keyhole there is only one key with the matching colour and shape in the Crime File image. Find these keys, and look out for the decoys. Add together the cells in which you find the correct keys. One key can only be seen clearly on the card showing the shelf by the bathroom mirror (Evidence Card 1). This means that key is in the bathroom, so we can use the correct cell from the Crime scene image for the calculation. Find the correct keys here: The circular silver key in cell 11; the hexagonal black key in cell 25; the square gold key in cell 6; and the triangular bronze key in cell 28. Add the numbers up to get the solution: 70.

**Follow the cypher to the storybook. Next, find a ‘newspaper’ in cell 28, and reveal the last card.**

**Endgame**

**You found a ‘newspaper’ in cell 28, and took Evidence Card 28. The card instructs you to read Part 3 of the story. It’s time to make your final choice.**

**If you have all of your Reputation Cards, they spell out “MAGAZINE EGYPT.” When you look at the Evidence Card with an Egyptian pyramid, you can see an airplane. The right course of action is to head to c) JFK Airport. Take Evidence Card 11 and see how the story ends.**
