Your nosy journalist makes you an offer you cannot refuse.

"My journalist friend needed help in uncovering a sweet-stuffs smuggling operation. That sounded big. What could I do? I took the case."


Detective: So, how about that coffee...

Pola Chapelle: Coffee can wait! I found something big! There's a smuggling ring that transports illegal sweet-stuffs into the city.

Detective: So, how about that shopping...

Pola Chapelle: Shopping can wait! I found something big! There's a smuggling ring that transports illegal sweet-stuffs into the city.

Detective: That would explain why the candy prohibition isn't as effective as everybody hoped. But what proof do you have?

Pola Chapelle: None. It's just a single, thin lead... But that's where you come in. You can verify my findings and help me find the culprits! What do you say, partner?


Detective: A sweet-stuffs smuggling operation... this sounds big. I wouldn't be surprised if someone tried to hinder my investigation.

Pola Chapelle: I'm sure you can handle a few thugs, honey.

  • 5 questions
  • 3 photos
  • 4 fingerprints
  • Policeman: 5 donuts
  • 1 knuckle
  • 3 footprints
  • 3 photos
  • 3 maps

If you fail:

Detective: I wasn't able to verify any of the findings. The witnesses won't talk, all the evidence is gone, all the places empty... as if someone was covering it up.

If you win:

Detective: Folks talk about sweetened products of unknown origin around the city. But why the authorities want us to stay out of this?

Pola Chapelle: Looks like my lead was right. Someone's trying to cover up the whole thing. We need to act fast!

City search: Logistics of CrimeEdit

Detective: We need to know how the sweet-stuffs enter the city. The smugglers probably transport it in bulk, so it shouldn't be to hard to find.

Pola Chapelle: I wonder where are they getting the product, though?

The smuggling operation is:

  • more than 1 from warehouses
  • more than 2 from factories
  • in the distance of 1 from railways
  • not more than 1 from a port
  • not more than 3 from an office
  • On the map there are 2 warehouses
  • On the map there are 3 ports

Solution: (8,7)

If you fail:

Detective: With thousand tons of cargo going through the city each day, I doubt I'll ever find the sweet-stuffs.

If you win:

Detective: Predictable. The easiest way to transport sweets into the city is by ship. And the best place to unload a ship unnoticed is Dock 12.

Pola Chapelle: So they're shipping it... from where? Europe? Canada?

Crime scene search: The Canuck ConnectionEdit

Detective: I'll take peek at the warehouses. Maybe the contraband is hidden somewhere here. And you better stay away from here.

Pola Chapelle: Well, I guess I could get my hands on some paperwork. Maybe we'll trace the ship or the company who's smuggling the product.

If you enter the northeast warehouse:

Detective: Hmmm... this warehouse belongs to InterLogistics Inc.

If you enter the southeast warehouse:

Detective: Hmmm... this warehouse belongs to Worldwide Shipping Co.

If you enter the southwest warehouse:

Detective: Hmmm... this warehouse belongs to AmTransGroup LLC.

If you fail:

Detective: I think they already moved all of the cargo. This might mean they found out I was snooping around the smuggling operation.

If you win:

Detective: A-ha! A bottle of Canadian maple syrup. It seems AmTransGroup is behind all of this. I need to get back to Pola.

Suspect identification: Limited LiabilityEdit

Detective: I know the name of the company, but now I need to pin a face to it.

Pola Chapelle: This AmTransGroup is really shady. But I've got a list of names... let's see who shows up at the Dock 12.

Solution: Telly Cane

If you fail:

Detective: This is a false lead. The owner is probably just a figurehead, and the real culprits are in hiding.

If you win:

Detective: Telly Cane? But he works for the city hall... Darn, this case is the worst. I have my doubts...

Pola Chapelle: Stop complaining. You did a great job. We'll talk about it at your place.


If you fail:

Detective: This is bigger than I thought, Pola. I think someone big is behind this, and we don't want to step on this person's fingers. We should call it quits.

Detective: This is bigger than we thought, Pola. I think someone big is behind this, and we don't want to step on this person's fingers. We should call it quits.

Pola Chapelle: But I need to write this article! Do what you want, but I can't just back away from this!

If you win:

Detective: Pola, we need to go to the police. A single bottle of syrup in an unguarded warehose isn't enought evidence, but the media will chew up Telly Cane anyway.

Pola Chapelle: Exactly. He might escape the police, but he won't be able to escape the free press. And when I publish the article, the cops will be forced to start the investigation.

Detective: That's not what I meant! What if he's not guilty? What if your article destroys the Cane's career?

Pola Chapelle: This isn't just about my article. And trust me, he's guilty. With people like Cane roaming free, mayor Covet's sugar policy is in danger.

Detective: Maybe you're right. Why I even got involved with this case?

Pola Chapelle: I think you know why. Oh, and the coffee is still a valid offer. Just as soon as I write this article!

Pola Chapelle: Cause I couldn't do it without you. Oh, and shopping is still an valid offer. Just as soon as I write this article!
