Bundled alongside Where In Time Is Carmen Sandiego, The New American Desk Encyclopedia was used to help players understand clues and research information before the time ran out. It had over 13,000 entries across nearly 1,400 pages.
The version of the book that was shipped with the NES port of the game actually has a "Konami" advertisement rather than a "The New Print Shop" ad from Broderbund.
