The Hunt for the Holy Grail   (Mystery Giveaway)
After five months of vacation, the governor returns to the GOG Manor.  As he enters the office, he discovers the dead body of his faithful butler, crushed under the safe, a sheet of paper in hand.  The governor, believing that it's just a banal accident, hires another butler and forgets about the incident.

Five days later, he receives an arrogant letter from Carmen Sandiego :
       Dear Governor,
           An important document has been stolen from your safe, and was replaced by a fake !
           Your butler witnessed the burglary, and he hired a video game hero to hunt me down...
           Unfortunately, the poor hero is now rotting in jail, and the document is about to be sold !
           I recently had a little discussion with your butler, and the safe had the last word !

           Don't try to find me...
       Carmen Sandiego
