Facebook Carmen Sandiego CLUES

I'm getting addicted to this game and I couldn't find a single repository of clue answers. I'll be updating this entry as I get more clue answers and corrections. A Ctrl-F should be able to help you find the answers you need.

Most of the answers here are compiled from the Discussion Board in Facebook. Check it out to get it straight from the experts!


Hair Color

At first I thought she was flying the Chinese flag over her head, but then I looked closer and it was just her hair

Her head was covered in flax. Toss in some honey-nut clusters, you've got yourself a healthy breakfast
She had a mane like a lion, though it was more the color of a giraffe
One look at his hair and I thought, "This guy has more fun."

It looked like her hair was always in the shadows. Real criminal underworld material, if you ask me!
hair like cola
Hair the color of a new moon
His hair absorbed light like his pockets absorbed my money clip.
It's hard to describe his hair color. It was almost like every color at once.

As hair goes, I'd say it was somewhere in the same athletic conference as Vanderbilt and Alabama

the most grizzled possible hair
He had the hair of someone who's been around the block, or at least of someone with a lot of dye and a need to look distinguished
Her hair was monochromatic, and I mean that in the most achromatic possible way
He had a lot more youthful energy than his hair would suggest. And let me tell you, it was pretty suggestive hair
How do I put this? She had hair like the goose most likely to sell vodka

Eye Color

He had sad eyes, going solely on the color

a hardscrabble life
He had eyes like an oxidized Granny Smith apple


When I saw him, there wasn't a cloud in the sky. They'd all migrated to his eyes
eyes being desaturated
Her eyes looked like someone had failed to prevent a forest fire

All around the mulberry bush, you'd see mulberries the color of her eyes.
eyes the color of the haze the took jimi hendrix someplace interesting
descended from roman royalty
I felt at ease with him, because his eyes represent harmony in Chinese painting
I thought she'd been punched in the eye but it turns out the color was natural, not the result of a few days of bruising

Favorite Food

I remember him saying he could eat a meal fit for a Pope. I also remember picturing an excited Pope in a bib
She said she'd tried every kind of olive from Sicily to Milan. I said it was time for a new hobby

He stormed out when I told him I didn't have any chipotle-based hot sauce
When I asked if he played any musical instruments, he said he definitely enjoyed a good flauta
Yeah, I remember her. But I'd probably remember anyone who walked in here munching on a wheel of cotija

hungry for more an hour later
All I remember is, he had plum sauce all over his shirt. I was... strangely jealous
She kept bringing up how much she liked bamboo shoots. Though in fairness, I'm often confused for a panda.
He was wearing one of those beer hats, but the bottles were filled with egg drop soup. That guy knew how to party.

New American
he demanded to know the recipe for my duck infused meatballs
reconstructed comfort food
oddly affectionate toward brussels sprouts
He wanted me to taste his new recipe for New England clam chowder, but I declined, since I could already smell it
She wouldn't shut up about her plans for an upscale deli sandwich truck
She disappeared after whispering her secret recipe for haute crawfish gumbo. I'll never look at a crawfish the same way again
She left as soon as I told her I didn't have any pastrami-cured tuna
Who knew there were so many ways to make a hamburger? She did.
She was ranting and raving about "deconstructed comfort food."

he questoined my turkey sandwich, i asked him who made him the turkey boss, his reply was millions of turkeys

Personality Quirk

When she spoke, I suggested she get out of crime and start beat-boxing for an a capella group
She told me she suffered from alalia syllabaris, though it took her a while to finish telling me that.

She kept talking about "shadowy forces." I told her here, we call those trees
Huh, guess you really are out to get her
He asked if I was wearing a wire. But my glasses are 1- obviously tortoiseshell.

Talks to Animals
she was a real dr dolittle

Zero Carbon Footprint
When she turned the lights off, I thought she was trying to hide her face. Turns out she was trying to offset her morning toast
When this lady had an idea, a compact fluorescent popped up over her head
the smoke that came out of his vehicle made me hungry
He rode a bicycle until he had generated enough pedal power to charge a car battery. Then he drove to the recycling center
He asked me directions to a place he could buy carbon offsets for asking directions
He kept trying to fit public water fountains with tiny hydroelectric generators
She wanted to know if I was a local. I was afraid that meant she was considering eating me

Poor Hygiene
There were some holes in her corduroys. Unless those were her legs, and the holes were dried half-and-half


I remember that we started talking at the same time, he said "let!", and then we started over.
He complained about the service around here, then said more people should be using topspin
She said she was working on her drop shot. But she said it in a shifty way
He was the only person I've ever met who claimed his bracelet was athletic gear
She was a real Open gal. Told me all about US, Australia, France and England
He grunted every time he swung his arms.

Her hobby was out there, so out there it reached all the way to the parlors of 18th-century Colonial Williamsburg

He wanted to know where to buy fertilizer, though he smelled like he had plenty of it
I could tell she was digging around for something. Probably the best place to plant a row of petunias
He told me he knew of eleven secret herbs and spices that you could grow as part of a relaxing and productive pastime.
Spending five minutes around this lady got me pretty excited about planting bulbs and tubers. The excitement wore off when I looked at a potato.

He seemed taken aback when I didn't offer him free drinks just for being here

Steam Robotics
She waxed poetic on the virtues of the fireless locomotive. I waxed the hood of my regular car and told her to go away.

Body Type

never again will I fail to think of him when I chance to visit a rotunda
You know how birds famously have small bones? Yeah, this guy was the opposite of that
Judging from his physique, his personal trainer is the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man
He was built like a bowling ball. But not one you'd want to bowl with, because his arms and legs would affect the roll
he was as stout as an oak. Hey, do you think there could ever be half-tree half-men? Wait, come back!
I'm guessing that she had to buy two seats on the flight she took out of the city


The only body image issues I could imagine her having is deciding which box of cereal should feature a photo of her body
He was a powerhouse. I bet I could have charged my cellphone if he squeezed it in his triceps.

She was huge. I'd guess her pants length is 45. And that's cuffed
Ever seen one of those clowns on stilts? He was like that, only without stilts, and not quite as terrifying
You know how some people walk around with their heads in the clouds? He did that literally.

I told her to fix her posture, and she glared at like I was probably the thousandth person to tell her that.

Distinguishing Feature

Floppy Hat

Pet Raven
I didn't want to rattle this guy's cage, but I was pretty sure the bird he was carrying in it was dead.
I wanted to show her some footage I'd taken of the center of the planet, but she said, "No thanks, I have a corvid right here." Get it?
One look at this lady and I knew she was ravin' mad. Or mad for ravens. What's the expression again?

Fur Coat

here's an important detail: she has a detail
I don't know what he thought he had to protect with that kind of hired gun. What? You say he's an international thief? Well then that makes sense
He didn't say much, and the burly guy with him said even less

I've never been caught knock on wood and he rapped his shin
The girl was tough as nails. I think I saw a few of them sticking out of her pant leg.


I couldn't tell if he was on the way to a heist or to the prom. Either way, those photos we took together were pretty awkward
She wouldn't get out of her car until her driver opened the door for her

I couldn't believe it! He was driving next year's flagship Bajaj! I'd get one myself, but I don't need the ego massaj

he was built like a wrecking ball? more like an airplane!
Your suspect had her head in the clouds. Until she landed, anyway
There was such a fuss when she landed here, no one even noticed that her engine exhaust ruined my begonias. Such is the life of the begonia enthusiast
I didn't even know we had airspace until she violated it

Ice Cream Truck
Some people sell fro-yo, but after tasting hers, I'm pretty sure it was fraud-yo
She rolled down the window and told me she was experimenting with ancient gelato-making techniques. I told her she had the wrong address
The neighborhood kids loved this guy, even after their houses got burgled. Must've been some chipwich
You know how there are those popsicles with riddles printed on the stick? Her popsicles were like that, only the sticks came with PIN codes
When you catch your suspect, there'll be an entire freezer-full of bomb pops in it for you.

you should've seen the art she had on her deck. Seriously, it had explicitly laid out her escape plan
The way he glided around on that thing, it was like no staircase and/or railing was gonna stop him

Cape Town
Does he like cricket? What am I saying, who doesn't like cricket? I'll bet you'll find him at a Cobras game, trying to sneak into the good seats.

Havana, Cuba
I told him not to forget to go out to the back yard and see Granma.

Take a look - here's a photo where he's sitting on a bench by a sculpture of John Lennon. But where are Lennon's glasses?

Amanda Tatiana said...

Thank you! Everytime I get that one I look it up and I have to google part of it and I always get brown! It's kinda irratating bc then I use the wrong warrant! Ugh! LOL!

Anonymous said...

Little suggestion:
At the end of each set of clues, put, once again, the answer to all those. Example:

"Mexico City, Mexico
Your perp was going to stop by Hidalgo Station on the Metro, to see the section of wall where a water leak took the form of the Virgin of Guadalupe.
Mexico City, Mexico"

Might seem nonsense, but, those who, like me, use google, sometimes get to see the answer (or supposed answer) without having to access the website.
I just lost a case because of this.
Got the Mona Lisa clue (last one for Bogota), but, right at the end of the sentence, google showed Buenos Aires, where I traveled to.

Thanks for the trouble you had putting this list together! This is just a sugestion that I think would make it even better!
