Roberta Williams was responsible for many classic Sierra PC games, with the King’s Quest series being the most famous. In 1989 she created The Colonel’s Bequest, a mystery adventure game set in a plantation in the 1920’s. The copy protection used was an image of a fingerprint shown on the monitor that had to be matched up by using a special red-lensed magnifying glass while examining the game map for partially hidden fingerprints. Later versions simply included a “Fingerprint Sheet” that didn’t require this level of effort just to start the game. For those who have either lost the magnifying lens or the “Fingerprint Sheet”, and are desperate to solve this classic Laura Bow mystery, below is a reproduction. Enjoy!
