  • This game was played and recommanded by Co-op Board Games, here its opinion:

    4/5

    Pros:

    • Does a great job of making players feel like detectives.
    • All of the cases were written well. You can tell a lot of work went into them.
    • Limited resources force you to make tough decisions.
    • The game's website is fantastic.
    • Easy to set up, allowing to get right into the game.
    • Simple rules means it's very easy to learn how to play.

    Cons:

    • I don't like that every case comes down to answering multiple choice questions.
    • The cases can be very long, and they can feel long.
    • A lot of filler text on some cards.

    Detective definitely does make players feel like detectives. It's certainly not my favorite detective game - Sherlock Holmes and Deadline are better, in my opinion - but it is quite a bit different than other games in the genre. If you like the idea of trying to solve interesting cases by using a very cool online database and team deductive skills, definitely check this one out.

    5/5

    Narratif, immersif, Détective nous plonge dans des enquêtes policières à la croisée entre jeu, film et roman. Plus qu'un jeu de plateau, Détective est une véritable expérience. Le meilleur jeu de 2018? Peut-être
