Mystery Express Whodunit Contest

Alan Moon has been saved!

The kidnappers have been foiled, thanks to the detective work of Shawn Simas, aka DaJackel, from Ontario Canada, who was the first to respond with the correct crime elements in the Mystery Express Whodunit contest. He knew that it was Prof. Karlov, driven by his deep Despair, who Clubbed poor Alan in the Club Car at 6:30!

In addition to Alan Moon's grateful thanks, he has also won a $500 (US) reward.

Congratulations to DaJackel and also to the Telegram from Budapest winners who correctly guessed the right clues part way through the contest: Dewitt (France), Doranator (UK), regulus1 (Belgium), muka (Poland), JasonRubino (US), mcgrath251 (US), player626172 (Canada), drew8 (US), jfpilon (Canada) and harrmeg (Greece).

Each of the Telegram from Budapest winners win a copy of the new Mystery Express board game from Days of Wonder!
