"This is, no joke, the best mystery, detective, deduction game I've ever played!"
- Jamie, The Secret Cabal Podcast
In Detective: A Modern Crime Game, 1-5 players take on the role of investigators working for the government agency ANTARES. Investigators are given login credentials to the ANTARES online database that contains data about suspects, witnesses, and documentation from arrests and trials related to their case. Players are free to use the investigation manual, ANTARES database, and any other online resources they may find to help them solve the case (like Wikipedia, Google Maps and other available resources).
Detective: A Modern Crime Game brings classic puzzle-solving card and board gameplay into the 21st century with the introduction of online research elements. This story-driven, cooperative game includes five scenarios that can be played as a complete campaign. The game blends printed elements, where each case is represented by one deck of about 35 cards, with a complementary online component that allows players to investigate clues through their favorite internet-connected devices.
