    News – Detective: Season One Revealed

    Detective: Season One Revealed

    Portal Games have revealed that Detective: A Modern Crime Board Game will be re-implemented as Detective: Season One. This announcement was made at last week's Essen event in Germany. Before we explain how the new version works, lets remind ourselves of the original game.

    Detective - A Modern Crime Board Game

    Detective: A Modern Crime Board Game was a massive hit in 2018. The co-operative detective game featured five linked cases and an innovative dedicated online database. Players used the database to search for information and clues. In the game you take on the role of an investigator solving crimes and puzzles for the Antares National Investigation Agency.

    You must search the database for clues and information about your suspects and witnesses. You can also use the internet to decipher the facts from the lies and solve the case. Players had to perform plenty of research, information gathering and sorting and was pretty involved with note taking and chalk boards.

    Season One

    Detective: Season One will still be a co-operative detective game for one to five players. However, Season One will contain only three cases, each having a shorter play time than its bigger brother. Season One is being aimed more at the family friendly gaming night, or for those who want a "lighter" experience with more casual gamers. Each of the cases will be set in a different setting. This suggests that there is no overall arching story.

    Detective: Season One is due to arrive with retailers in the second half of 2020. Given the success of the original game, it's likely that this will be a huge hit. Although aimed at a different market. Detective: Season One will be a great choice for a lighter detective, crime solving game, whilst still retaining some of the DNA from the original game.

    I've ordered a few times from Zatu up to this point. The website works well, stock listings always seem to be right up to date and they have a fantastic range of products, which is why I keep coming back to them. Their delivery options are great and when they say next day delivery, they mean it, without any early cut off times. If the shop is open, they'll process the order. If I had one small criticismm some of the products could use better quality and more detailed descriptions as I did have to search online to read more about some items I was looking at. But that doesn't put me off ordering from Zatu, especially with such good prices.

    Second time buying from Zatu very helpful, quick delivery and advised me straight away when an item was out of stock. Highly recommend and will continue to use.

    I received a notification that the game I wanted was back in stock, and had it on order five minutes later. Easy peasy.
