We're up to 3 now!  Surely there are many others, though...right?

It was one of my son's favourite computer games in 1995.

The original version was a type of computerised whodunnit utilising world wide geographical knowledge and trivia to find which crime and where Carmen San Diego was to be found.

A simple board game version of a similar game would be Cluedo but "Where in the World is Carmen San Diego" was a very slick package for the earlier 1990's.

It developed into other versions of which one was "Where in the Universe is Carmen San Diego" but they were never as good as the original.

In the US, the public television stations ran a child's "game show" version of it.  I don't remember much about it, though.
