Your Challenge

The North West Mounted Police are trying to finally close a long-unsolved mystery - the identity of the mysterious CANMORE SMUGGLER.

Throughout the 1920s this well-meaning mastermind used the railway to bring in illegal supplies for the old mining families, who in turn would always protect the smuggler’s true identity. Now at last a clever NWMP historian has put together a list of 21 suspects, each of whom has an alibi which must be checked - and YOU have been tasked to do it!

A trail of clues will lead you around town, and once you have checked all alibis the smuggler will be unmasked!
