Get ready to travel the world, encounter exotic sights and sounds, meet unusual people - and arrest them. Carmen Sandiego's international crime ring is furiously filching world treasures ordinary thieves wouldn't dare to tackle. Why do you think the Mona Lisa's smile is missing? And you know Achilles' heel didn't just walk off by itself. We're counting on you, Gumshoe. So...
Get on the case. Check in with the Chief, via ACME's Satellite Network for the lowdown on the latest heist.
Start your worldwide chase. Use the travel map to plan your pursuit. It's a non-stop game of cat and mouse as you take off to exotic locations, hot on the trail of the crooks.
Interrogate informants. Gather evidence that identifies the fleeing fugitives and their whereabouts.
Crack clues by the book. Use the World Geography Reference Book (World Almanac) to decipher details of the looters' locations.
Go for the Warrant. When you think you've got the goods on the bad guys, submit your evidence, make the collar, and go to court. But beware. Your evidence must be airtight or your suspect will go free.
Catch Carmen and advance your career. Start as a Gumshoe and move up 8 ranks to Super Sleuth. Catch the elusive Carmen and you'll be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Carmen Sandiego is a winner because whatever else the title is or does, it's profoundly fun. The more fun it is, the theory goes, the longer kids play. And the longer they play, the more they learn. This is the essence of "stealth" education. What gets kids who play Carmen Sandiego so excited and involved is the thrill of the pursuit, not the facts they learn along the way. But the facts are unavoidable.
