Day 10 is Thursday, December 2nd, 1982 in story mode. A superior checks in, a stand is taken, and mysterious orders are issued.

Rules in effect[]


  • The first entrant is the divisional authority of East Grestin, Dimitri. He states the total number of citations the inspector has received and gives him a plaque to hang on the wall.
    • Dimitri counts as an entrant for the purpose of this article since he increases the counter at the bottom of the screen by 1.
  • The fourth entrant (including Dimitri, see above) is a foreigner who is missing a passport or an entry permit. Allowing entry will lead to a citation and they refuse to leave the booth if they are denied. It is impossible to proceed without detaining them and not get a citation.
  • The seventh entrant is an EZIC messenger. They give the inspector the decoder to the cipher received from Corman Drex. The messenger leaves stating that their plans will begin tomorrow, and that the inspector should let future agents pass. The day will continue to this point even if the clock reaches 6pm.
