Did my bit to support local business. At least they'll look good on the shelf.

Has anyone played Detective: A Modern Crime boardgame? It’s fantastic. You play as detectives solving a case with a very involved story told through the medium of cards with decision points that take you to new cards or info, an online database where you can look up evidence or case files you encounter, and by creating mind maps to link all of the evidence you find.

I played the first case ages ago and really enjoyed it but it takes a few hours to complete a case and we wanted to play the second one with the same group so it never ended up happening again. In lockdown I thought it might be a game that could work on zoom so bought an expansion; LA Crimes. It’s set in the 80s. We’ve been playing with three households over zoom with only my house having the game and it’s working fantastically well. Finishing case three tonight then we have one free case left before the next expansion comes out in June. If you’re looking for a game to play with friends remotely, I really recommend it and happy to share few tips on how to make it work super easily over zoom.

New boardgame arrived today! I preordered it a while ago and have been seeing increasing levels of praise for it so excited for it to finally arrive. Apparently they’ve released rules and material to make it work over zoom when only one house a game copy so might give that a look if any of my friends have the appetite for it.

The game is Forgotten Waters and it’s another Crossroads game from Plaid Hat, using that same Crossroads mechanic that they introduced in Dead of Winter but this time in a pirate theme and using a map book similar to the type found in Stuffed Fables or Near and Far.

Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective completed over the weekend, we did cases 9 and 10. Immediately ordered the 2 expansions, so another 20 cases to do!

It's a really nice game, and perfect for 2 people. Lots of headscratching and you can very much "play it how you want", it's more of a detctive roleplaying/mystery rather than a boardgame as such.

Two thumbs up!

We've played about three cases from this but we haven't played it now for ages.
