What Century Would You Like to Detect In?

Lucky Duck Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for three standalone games in the Chronicles of Crime style.  This so-called Millennium series does not need the base game to play.  Each of the games is set in a different period of time: 1400, 1900, and 2400.  All three of the games are designed by the original game's designer, David Cicurel, who is joined by Wojciech Grajkowski.  The games each play 1-4 players, ages 14 and up, with a play time of 60-90 minutes per session.

In Game 1, 1400, the players represent a knight in Paris, France, who has strange dreams that allow him to investigate crimes, even those of the most unusual variety, that no one else will accept.  In Game 2, 1900, the players stand for a journalist working in Paris, interested in the crimes that happen within the city.  Again set in Paris, Game 3, 2400, the players are a highly trained cyber agent solving crimes in a future that seems unforgiving.  All three of the standalone games introduce new mechanics to those of the base game, and all three follow generations of the Lavel family.

This funded Kickstarter campaign, which has about 3 weeks to go, features several unlocked stretch goals, exclusives, and add-ons.  If you are interested in one, two, or all three of the games, be sure and check out the campaign page here.
