In Chronicles of Crime, from Lucky Duck Games, players are investigators who work together to solve a crime. The game mixes an app, a board game, and some Virtual Reality. In the Chronicles of Crime: Welcome to Redview expansion, 1-4 players investigate strange occurrences in the small town of Redview. It all begins when many animals start disappearing over the course of a few weeks, including Wookie, Richy’s dog. Richy’s 6 friends get together to find him. The Chronicles of Crime: Welcome to Redview expansion is designed by David Cicurel, and Ghislain Masson, with art by Matijos Gebreselassie, Mateusz Komada, and Katarzyna Kosobucka.
Unlike the core Chronicles of Crime game, this expansion is family friendly as there are no murders to investigate. There are only strange things happening in a small town in Maine, USA, in the 80’s. The players take on the role of the 6 kids who rely on strength, guile, agility, and wit, to meet their objectives.
The expansion includes 4 new scenarios, 10 location cards, 15 special item cards, 25 character cards, 6 player boards, a die, and a rule book. It also requires the base game of Chronicles of Crime, and a device to run the app on Android 4.4 or newer, or iOS 8.0 or newer. Once downloaded, the app no longer requires an internet connection. Purchase of the VR glasses is optional and separate.
Expect the expansion to release in March or April of 2019.
