In Crime Scene Files, players find themselves in a scenario of intrigue and murder, deduction and deception. The Murderer secretly chooses their means of crime. The Forensic Scientist holds the key to convicting the criminal but is only able to express their knowledge through analysis of the scene. The investigators collaborate to interpret the clues with their wits, their hunches, and their keen deductive insight - and the killer is among them.

Will the investigators have what it takes to see through the lies and catch the criminal in their ranks or will they muddy the water long enough to get away with murder?

Reviews Review Game

I got this from kickstarter and I have to say I am glad I got it. A great cooperative game but depending on the amount of players you have there is one murder, an accomplice and a witness. Everyone is dealt four clue cards and four means card. One player us the lead investigator and reads from a script. Everyone closes there eyes and the lead investigator asks the murder and accomplice to open their eyes. The murderer will then point to one clue card and one means card that are placed in front of them. If you are playing with the witness character the witness will be told silently who is the murderer and who is the accomplice. When everyone has there eyes open the leadoor investigator will then on his clue cards put a bullet to help the other investigators to figure out who is the murder and what object theyou uses to commit the crime. Investigators can then chuck in their badge to try and solve the case. An excellent game that plays upto 12 people.

I was brought this for Christmas as a surprise present and I have to say its brilliant. There is another name for the game and that is Deception: Murder in Hong Kong. This is a bluffing / deduction game where a group of 4-12 people determine who is the killer and which 2 objects were used/present for the murder. The game can take anywhere between 15-30 min to play a round dependent on the number of people playing. There are a few roles which are mandatory one is the 'Forensic Scientist' and another is the 'Murderer' (couldn't really have the game without these!!) The forensic scientist technically runs the game in that they are aware of who the murderer is and what objects link to the crime it is they who using the various cards get the rest of the investigators to try to work out who the murderer is. Incredibly easy to play and has a wonderful replay value. In my honest opinion I like to allow each person in the group to be the Forensic Scientist so everyone gets chance to experience the different roles. As the numbers increase you can also add other roles to the game such as accomplice and witness. We played this at one of our gaming groups last month and played multiple games of it everyone was thoroughly invested in the game and they all wanted to move the roles around, we then played it again at another gaming meet up and again ended up playing multiple games of this - its really gone down well and with a mix of people and ages.
