Join the community and come discuss games like Codenames, Wingspan, Brass, and all your other favorite games! BE A HEEL: One player will take on the role of The Chisel, whose only goal is to stall and misdirect the detectives at every turn using bluffing, manipulation, and (often) outright lies.

Instead of managing leverage tokens, the solo player must manage their detective's stress levels while they attempt to solve the case in time. When a player chooses to question a suspect, the Chisel will choose one of several possible answers. Each crime is a carefully constructed puzzle that can unfold in a variety of ways depending on how the detectives choose to pursue their investigations.

Detective: City of Angels is an epic narrative-driven board game set in the dark and violent world of 1940s Los Angeles. They are the game master whose job it is to keep the detectives from getting to the bottom of the case. Since most crimes are Suspect, Weapon, and Motive, it means that a player must identify a suspect that they have knowledge of, have found and identified the murder weapon, and choose a motive found on the back of detective casebook. The four action cubes will be placed on their designated areas on the action board that is on the classic mode side. I think the best role to play when you break out Detective: City of Angels is the role of detective in the competitive mode.

Detective City of Angels includes separate, detailed casebooks for both the detectives and The Chisel. There may be special rules dictated by the casebook that will change things like what day the game starts on the day track.With the Chisel trying to thwart you at every turn, at least you’ve got your fellow detectives to help you out, right? You solve crimes by exploring the city, gathering clues, and, you guessed it, interrogating dishonest suspects. Challenge incorrectly, however, and you'll end up taking on stress tokens, which can shorten the amount of time you have to solve a case. REPLAY ABILITY: Each crime is a carefully constructed puzzle that can unfold in a variety of ways depending on how the detectives choose to pursue their investigations. They will read the case that was chosen to play for the game as the Chisel casebook explains who committed the crime.

Detective: City of Angels offers a great time for solving a crime that offers some genuine deduction. By letting it be not all about me, I've had some really good gaming experiences with people who love games but don't necessarily identify as "board gamers," and to me, that is dynamite. As the detectives turn the city upside down, uncovering fresh evidence and "hot" leads, hidden suspects may be revealed and new lines of questioning will open up, creating a rich, story-driven experience.

Couple these with the unique mechanics of later missions and no two games of Detective: CoA are ever the same. Just know that there is a limited number of cases, and you'll have to make choices about how to experience them. Each detective will now receive an investigation sheet that they will fill out with their suspects on the left side going down and lettered case cards going across the top. The main board will be setup in the center with "scratch" (money) placed on the bottom left corner of the board, and the day marker will be placed on day 7. By keeping the game fun for the players, and trying to make sure that no one detective gets too much edge on the others, you can make Detective: City of Angels a truly magical experience for the people who are playing it.

The reason being is the circle will single the question was asked, and then a player can be an X in it if they challenged or asked a question with leveraged. Jump forward to 2019 and it’s impossible not to compare Van Ryder Games’ Detective: City of Angels to the L. As the detectives turn the city upside down, uncovering fresh evidence and "hot" leads, hidden suspects may be revealed and new lines of questioning will open up, creating a rich, story-driven experience!

When Billy O’Shea insists that the victim was a regular at Topsy’s Nightclub, is he telling the truth or is The Chisel subtly leading the detectives toward a dead end that will cost them precious time? If they wish to move to another district, one move action is used to move them to a boarder between two districts, and then another move action is spent to move into that new district. Teaching the Game: As the Chisel really pay attention to the Detectives because if they are having a hard time a Chisel player can make things somewhat easier. It is also possible to play the game cooperatively, either against the Chisel or against a gamebook that simulates the Chisel.
