Thoroughly Enjoyable and Engaging
Instructions are short and clear. Easy game to pick up. The cases are well designed and provide numerous leads and possible suspects making for an interesting game.<br /> There is an element of the game whereby you score points by answering questions relating to each case. Your points are affected by how many leads you have followed. I find it more enjoyable to ignore the score aspect and instead just aim to be able to answer all the questions correctly. <br /> Would highly recommend this game.
I played the first case
I played the first case with my girlfriend, really well done as a sort of choose your own adventure using a map and a directory to navigate. Well presented, feels like a quality build, almost good enough to withstand your girlfriend sitting on the map despite you repeatedly asking her not to. If boardgamer has a cure for that I will throw money at them.
The game is laid out
The game is laid out really well, with top quality components that help to make it a joy to play. <br /> The cases are really well laid out, and provide enough detail to start your investigation, and to start to second guess thoughts and assumptions. <br /> This is a really well put together, challenging, and very enjoyable game. I would highly recommend.
