About this deal

Just know that there is a limited number of cases, and you'll have to make choices about how to experience them. Staring at your TV screen, trying to spot the ticks and tells of a perfectly animated witness was what made L. A game begins with each detective being handed a case file containing the details of the mystery they are about to solve. In truth, this is really for a solo play as it involves asking questions and using the Sleuth Casebook which is just a book field with responses to questions being asked. Detective: CoA uses the innovative ARC (Adaptive Response Card) System to create the feel of interrogating a suspect.

Sleuth Mode is also great for a Chisel to get an understanding of a case before taking it to the table for the detectives to solve. There are several actions that could trigger this block including submitting a certain word or phrase, a SQL command or malformed data. You solve crimes by exploring the city, gathering clues, and, you guessed it, interrogating dishonest suspects.

As in the competitive game, you will receive sometimes-dubious responses from your suspects, and you'll have to decide whether to challenge.

The unforgiving consequences of an interrogation gone bad ensured every question felt tense and every clue proved vital. Of course, like almost all detective board games, each case can only be solved once, so replayability is limited, but with nine mysteries in the base game and two expansions offering four more cases each, you’ll have a lot of content before the game runs dry. Since most crimes are Suspect, Weapon, and Motive, it means that a player must identify a suspect that they have knowledge of, have found and identified the murder weapon, and choose a motive found on the back of detective casebook.Question- When the Detective is at a location with a suspect they may ask a question, which is done in five steps. There’s nothing else quite like it, and the simple but effective rules will appeal to both new and experienced board gamers alike. Each crime is a carefully constructed puzzle that can unfold in a variety of ways depending on how the detectives choose to pursue their investigations.
