Want to squeeze in a little detective work before bed but don't want to commit to a three hour case? Season One's got your back.
Not content with just winning tonnes of awards, Detective: The Modern Crime Board Game designer Portal Games have just announced the trio of new scenarios (Solid Alibi, Natural Causes, and Blood, Ink, and Tears) available in their upcoming Season One expansion. And while Season One’s cases are shorter and more focused on the casual game night, they sound great.
“Blood, Ink, and Tears moves action to Great Britain, where players visit an old mansion and discover family secrets from the past that lead them to clues behind the mysterious death of the family patron. Fans of Agatha Christie’s novels will find themselves at home in this rather funny case!
Solid Alibi throws players in the middle of a bloody conflict between gangs and criminals in the Italian district. Players will have to not only solve the crime and discover who killed Robert Parkson, but also witness growing tension in the district and find out who to trust in the spiral of violence and mutual accusations!
Natural Causes takes players to a university campus in the US. Professor Calvin Higgs is found dead in his lab at the Biology Institute of Virginia University. Players need to find out if his death is from natural causes, or perhaps there’s someone in his surroundings responsible for this horrible crime. But what could be the motive?”
They’ve also announced a new free scenario called Suburbia which players can play even without owning the base game. While Season One doesn’t have a solid release date yet, it looks like it will arrive in the latter half of 2020 and claims to have a surprise in the pre-order campaign for those that played the Natural Causes case when it was available online.
