That illusive lady from when I was a kit is still on the loose. Carmen Sandiego is still running ramped somewhere.
A better question than where is the world (or US, time, universe) is Carmen Sandiego is what did Carmen Sandiego do? Why am I chasing her? Who tricked me into spending so much time learning when I was a kid?
What sparked these questions was a trip to the used game store where we found a Carmen Sandiego game for GameCube (Playstation and Xbox also available). Sadly, the game has been updated and now you are some ninja fighting robots and the whole clue / destination idea from the original game isn’t there. Or not that I’ve found so far.
I think I’ll just stick to the original. Spend the $0.20 (yes that’s all!!) and get the classic game to play on my computer. Should be fun even though it’s still educational.
