If I remember correctly, not a cap, but a visor with strap you tie around your head. It was quite flimsy, as I recall.

I'm probably wrong and instead had the 1991 edition (though I had previously thought it was earlier). This is the visor, or one similar, that came with my Ravensburger edition:

I'm fairly sure the version we had when I was a kid did not come with a visor or anything - it was probably the 1985 version.

How do you know which version the game is? I have a rather old one (definately before 1991). The box and the manual say "(c) 1983". It's the only date that's given.

This version comes with the visor pictured in Darryl's post.

[Edit:]
I was just browsing through the pictures here at BGG. This is what my box looks like:



I guess it's the 1983 edition, and it has the visor.

I bought it new and in plastic in 1985 and it did NOT coem with a cap or visor or anything else for Mr. X apart from the notebook. We just always had people look away.

There was an anniversary edition that came with a cap. Too bad that's not the version I have, as it looks nice.
