3 Secrets

Italian board game publisher dv GIOCHI (most well-known for the BANG! series of games) is publishing a new cooperative deductive game called 3 Secrets.  Boardgamegeek describes the twists that are to come with a hidden informant and mobile app inclusion:

In the cooperative game 3 Secrets, players want to unravel the three secrets of an unresolved case before time runs out. One of the players plays the role of informant and knows the truth about the case: They know which secrets need to be discovered and try their best to help you guess them correctly. The clock is ticking and the clues are scarce, so question the informant to gather useful information and find the solution. If you grope in the dark, the informant can reveal an important clue, but this will cost you precious time! Use your best observing eye, lateral thinking, and deduction skills to unravel all the mysteries of the ambiguous characters that populate this game.

3 Secrets comes with a free app available for download at the Apple AppStore and Google Play.

3 Secrets is for 2-8 players and is only supposed to play in 15 minutes.  For more information, visit the publisher’s page here.

dV Giochi has announced English versions of two new games, 3 Secrets and Deckscape – Test Time.

In 3 Secrets, 2-8 players try to cooperatively discover the 3 secrets of an unresolved case with the help of an app before time runs out. One player plays the role of informant, knows all the secrets that need be revealed, and will try to help where possible. Other players can ask questions, and the informant can give clues if the payers become sidetracked, but it will cost precious time. Use deduction, observation and lateral thinking to solve the mystery.

Deckscape – Test Time is a card driven implementation of an escape room. With 60 cards, players try to escape from Dr. Thyme’s Laboratory by solving puzzles, figuring out the plot of the story, and intelligently using found items. Test Time is the first in a planned set of escape room games from dV Giochi, plays 1-6 players and contains 60 cards.
