Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective Game

I’ve noticed that some of the things for this game are difficult to find so I’ll be scanning in bits of the game as I play through them or I find people need them. If you are missing something, let me know and, if I have it, I’ll scan in a jpg for you. If you have something I don’t and can send it to me, I’ll be most grateful… and I’ll put it up here as well- with or without credit as you choose.
