Puzzle A B C D E F G H I Endgame
You have read Part 1 of the story, and revealed the Evidence card marked “Start.” You have found a ‘clipboard’ in cell 6. Take Evidence Card 6, and solve Puzzle A.
You need to find the five objects from the silhouette image, and spot the same objects in the Crime Scene image. Add up the numbers of the cells in which you find them. First aid kit is in cell 12, keys in cell 8, crowbar in cell 27, fire extinguisher in cell 14, and the chain in cell 10. The correct answer is 71.
Follow the cypher to the storybook. Next, find the ‘wallet’ in cell 19, and take Evidence Card 19.
Evidence Card 19 prompted you to find the ‘cassette recorder’ in cell 20, so take Evidence Card 20, and solve Puzzle B.
You’ll see a black-and-white string on the card, so you need to find an Extra Card. What is the cassette recorder missing? A cassette. You will find it in cell 17, so take Evidence Card 17. On this card, you can see two more black-and-white strings. They probably have to do with Reagan’s Ray Gun. There are two posters in the Crime Scene image – in cells 11 and 14. Take those Evidence Cards and see, whether they match the strings. Yes, they do.
Now, look at card 11 and 14. Add up the musical notes on the top row and on the bottom row separately in card 11. Evidence Card 14 gives you the values for each note. The result for the top row is 18, and the result for the bottom row is 12, so the solution for the Puzzle is 1812.
Follow the cypher to the storybook. Next, find the ‘suspenders’ in cell 21, and take Evidence Card 21.
Evidence Card 21 prompted you to find ‘Polaroids’ in the Crime Scene image. They are in cell 10, so take Evidence Card 10, and solve Puzzle C.
There is a black-and-white string on Evidence Card 10, so you need an extra card to solve the Puzzle. Can you see more Polaroid pictures in the Crime Scene image? There are some on the table, in cell 24, so take Evidence Card 24.
First, look closely at the photos on Evidence Card 10 – you’ll see a small number in each of them. Now look at Evidence Card 24. The syllables from Enya and Egor’s names are also embedded in the four names on Evidence Card 10 (EN-YA and EG-OR). ‘ENYA’ and ‘EGOR’ tell you the order for the four small numbers, which is EN-YA-EG-OR.
EN = Elen = 4
YA = Yari = 5
EG = Oleg = 1
OR = Orel = 7
The solution is 4517.
Follow the cypher to the storybook. Next, find the ‘battery’ in cell 29, so take Evidence Card 29.
The underlined word in paragraph 12 prompted you to find a ‘battery’ in the Crime Scene image. Some batteries can be found in cell 29, so take Evidence Card 29.
Evidence Card 29 guides you to search for an ‘ID card’ in the Crime Scene image. It is in cell 7. This card has a series of elongated markings. Look at the four top lines on the bottom half. You can see, that they form four letters, 2-3-5-2, which also make up the solution for this Puzzle.
Follow the cypher to the storybook. Next, find the ‘corkscrew’ in cell 30, and take Evidence Card 30.
Evidence Card 30 prompted you to find the ‘bar’ in cell 13, so take Evidence Card 13.
As you turn Evidence Card 13, you can see five black-and-white strings on it – that means that you need to find five extra cards to solve Puzzle E. Look for stripy bottles in the Crime Scene image, and you will find them in cells 1, 3, 5, 18 and 27.
Line up the extra cards. Looking at the bottle on the original Evidence Card, you can see that the red wine is visible in the bottom of the bottles, while only green glass is visible above it. The five extra cards form four numbers. Each number spans over two cards. The two “full” walls are placed at either end of the five-card row, and the other three cards are then matched between those two. Once all sides go together, you can see the numbers when you squint at the cards. The solution is 2349.
Follow the cypher. Next, find the ‘football’ in cell 28, and take Evidence Card 28.
The underlined word in paragraph 20 prompted you to find the ‘playing card’ in cell 25, so take Evidence Card 25.
The symbol on the corner of this Evidence Card tells you that you need to add up the number of some cells. The image on the playing card refers to a poker chip. Can you spot any poker chips in the Crime Scene image? They are in cells 2, 23, 25 and 26. When you add up these numbers, you get the solution which is 76.
Follow the cypher to the storybook. Next, find the ‘clock’ in cell 9, and take Evidence Card 9.
You followed the cypher for Puzzle F and found the word ‘clock’ in cell 9. Now take Evidence Card 9.
There are two black-and-white strings on the card, so you need to find two extra cards to solve Puzzle G. On the Evidence Card, you can see a picture of a VHS cassette. Can you see any VHS cassettes in the Crime Scene image? There should be two – in cells 4 and 22.
There’s a red and a green arrow for each of the four times shown on the clocks. “Draw lines” from the different arrows on the crime scene image, and see where on the wall they cross for each specific time. Read the arrows in a chronological order. Start with top green arrow and top red arrow for 10:05. They cross on the number 2 below the clock. Then take the bottom green arrow and third from the top red arrow for 10:07. They cross on the Roman numeral 4 on the same stone support. Then take the third from the top green arrow and second from the top red arrow for 10:15. They cross on 6 on the same stone support. Finally, take the second from the top green arrow and bottom red arrow for 10:17. They cross on three on the mesh. These four numbers form the solution: 2463.

Look at your Evidence Board. You can find 7 symbols (fragments of digital numbers) throughout these cards and the Crime Scene image. Three of them are on the cards (one on Puzzle A; one on the cassette recorder on Puzzle B; and one on Puzzle E). 4 symbols are in the Crime Scene image (one on a piece of paper in cell 9; one on the toilet wall in cell 11; one on the knocked over bar stool in cell 21; and the last one near the floor in cell 30). Each fragment tells you which parts of the digital numbers to use. Once you have fitted them together, using the geometrical shapes, you will have 4 numbers: 2-2-4-8.
Follow the cypher to the storybook. Next, find the ‘syringe’ in cell 26, and reveal the last card.
