About this deal

The only negative may be some downtime for players if someone is trying to figure out what question they want to ask. If the last day passes and no Detective correctly guesses the solution one finale guessing round is given to all Detectives. If the response was the "most useful response" then the Chisel keeps the leverage marker to be used as Leverage against the Detective. Though, no one complained as they were spending time trying to piece together the solution to the crime.

There may be special rules dictated by the casebook that will change things like what day the game starts on the day track. Snitch- A Detective can spend three scratch during another player's turn to listen in on the question being asked. Learn how to design your own cases with our Case Design Guide then download our full Case Design Kit to bring your own case to reality!

Kickback- If the Detective is at a "mob joint" location they can receive "protection" money equal to the number of players playing the game (Chisel + Detectives). We messed up here and there but the cases are written in a very engaging way so we don't feel frustrated because there's always some thing interesting to learn.

The main board will be setup in the center with "scratch" (money) placed on the bottom left corner of the board, and the day marker will be placed on day 7. Detective: City of Angels is an epic narrative-driven board game set in the dark and violent world of 1940's Los Angeles. Detective: City of Angels offers a great time for solving a crime that offers some genuine deduction.The Chisel will win the game if all of the detectives lose, so it is in the Chisel's best interests to misdirect the detectives as cleverly as possible. The detective to the right of the Chisel will read the briefing on the case from the detective casebook.

It will state which lettered case files will be flipped, where suspects will be placed on the board, where the crime scene marker is placed, and places that detectives should visit. The other nice thing is the Chisel can modify how they are responding to detectives if they they feel one detective is having a easy time while another is struggling.This expansion for the narrative board game Detective: City of Angels includes 4 all-new Cases, 200 Cards to expand your investigative gameplay. Suspects do not simply give paragraph-book responses; instead The Chisel carefully chooses how they will answer. The good-natured bickering that results from racing your friends to solve a mystery makes game night extra wonderful. After just a handful of plays, DETECTIVE has skyrocketed to the top of my list of story telling games!
