In one of the first big announcements coming out of Essen 2019, Portal Games has announced that Detective: A Modern Crime Board Game is being reimplemented as Detective: Season One. Like the original game, Detective: Season One is a fully cooperative game for 1-5 players.
However, unlike the original game, Detective: Season One is more family friendly, featuring only 3 cases (the original game features 5), and has a shorter play time of 90 minutes, as opposed to the 2-3 hour playtime of the original game. Portal is billing the game as “perfectly tailored for a mystery game night” with each of the three cases set in a different setting.
Detective: Season One will be hitting your friendly local game store’s shelves in the second half of 2020. For those who are unfamiliar with the original game, more information can be found on the Portal Games website here.
