New York, the city that never sleeps. According to the high and mighty, things were supposed to be different in the Big Apple in 1938. No more poverty. Medicine that works. Shining skyscrapers and subway cars, the new age upon us. Sure. So why am I in the same dingy office, with a cheap desk and a cheaper secretary, paid to find a missing husband somewhere out in the mean streets? Simple job, except my wealthy socialite employer was hiding something. She was a good looker but a bad liar. I grabbed my hat and gun. I slipped a flask into the pocket of my overcoat. I was ready to wade into the cesspool.
Play as hard-boiled detectives cooperatively investigating 12 cases.
Every case has clues with symbols that must be matched to unlock their secrets. Players must wisely play their Lead cards to match the symbols on the clues to reveal what the clue offers: which can be important information, the addition of new clues to uncover, or a plain dead end.
Players can get hot tips that will help them investigate - but watch out for plot twists that will complicate your investigation.
When the investigation of the case is over, you must answer questions – the more you answer, the better detectives you are.
