Alex Casey Lunchboxes is a Points of Interest Case in Alan Wake 2, viewable on the Case Board in Saga Anderson's Mind Place. It covers Saga's overarching investigation into the collectible Alex Casey Lunchboxes, and is available as soon as she finds her first Alex Casey Lunchbox.

In the format below, text in italics is tooltip text that only appears when a relevant clue is hovered over on the case board. Numbers and letters have been assigned unofficially to represent the clue branches on the in-game Case Board. In the How to Obtain column, the Lunch Boxes are numbered based on the list from their collectibles page.

The clue descriptions for Alex Casey Lunchboxes are unique in that some Lunchboxes have two different descriptions, depending on whether or not they are the first in the sequence collected or not, which will be listed below as "version A" and "version B" as with in the game files. These are used for two topics. Version A is used for the first Lunchbox collected on that topic, and version B is used for all subsequent ones:

  1. Rose's fanfiction
  2. Rose's awareness of the "story"

Image Description and Tooltip How To Obtain
Mandy May has the knit design I've been finding by the lunch boxes
She mentioned she's been making them for Rose. Hmm.
Ask Mandy-May about her knitting (optional topic when first met during Return 5)
Rose: The lunch boxes I've been finding were left by Rose for her use, as well as the Hero's.
So it WAS Rose who left the lunch boxes. Guess it's fine that I've been looting them, seeing as I'm the "Hero."
Ask Rose about the lunchboxes (optional topic after Tor enters the Overlap)
Quote1 Rose Marigold left these lunchboxes for me. Alan Wake apparently told her to. Guess I owe her one. Quote2

CASE: CLOSED
Rose was leaving the lunch boxes. She was using them to fight Taken, but also hoped the Hero of Wake's story would find the supplies useful.
Find all lunchboxes and complete the last question
Quote1 Rose did all this for me. She completely believes I am the hero in Wake’s story. She should be a bit more critical of a person who tries to control people’s lives. Quote2
