Chronicles of Crime is a cooperative game of criminal investigation mixing board game, an app and a touch of Virtual Reality. You and your team will be put on crime cases, moving all around town, interviewing suspects or witnesses, and searching for clues in 3D scenes! 

The base game comes with 6 scenarios (1 tutorial + 5 investigations) for a total of 6 to 8 hours of gameplay. More scenarios will be released later!

  • Just finished the power behind trilogy. The game is awesome, just wish there was some more flexibility in how to tackle the investigations and unlocking the next path.
  • great
  • What a master piece. Never felt so immersed in a game beforI - the VR when looking for clues is a touch of genius. The game is so elegant and simple and yet you can spend hours interacting with players trying to solve these really good mysteries.Much better writing and gameplay than Detective (wich is full of typos, weird English and useless story bits).
  • Rating based on 1st play, which was very good. Anxious to play this some more and even bought VR goggles to this purpose!

Great idea. The list for me is:

1. #Too Many Bones this one looked too intimidating when it was set up on the table so she noped out, but she's warming ot the idea of giving it a try

2. #Great Western Trail "it's a jumbled up mess of random elements"... still bitter to this day about that take!

3. #Irish Gauge "it's too hard to get back into the game when you're losing" definitely truth to that, it's meaner than it looks 

4. #Arctic Scavengers: Base Game + HQ + Recon "its so bleak"

5. #Chronicles of Crime "it devolves into random scanning after a while" I agree with this as well. #Detective: A Modern Crime Game is my #1 crime mystery game by an incredibly long way. I think it dunks on consulting detective and while I respect chronicle's design, the app's not for me.

 

Nice review!

My fiance and I looked into this because she's really into true crime pods. Having read some reviews, we decided against this and went with #Chronicles of Crime instead due to the heavy text issues. It seems with the new version those are sorted out so I may have to look at this game again. Have you played Chronicles? If so how do you think the new version of Detective compares?

For us, Chronicles is a little difficult to solve the cases because it leaves us feeling like we failed to get a majority of the evidence. We still have fun going through it most of the time but the scenarios seem to string out further and further until you're like okay now what should we do? Maybe similarly to what you said in your cons section, we're just bad lol.

Nice, I've got one of the #Unlock! Escape adventures boxes and #Chronicles of Crime still waiting to be played, but if I enjoy those, might give these a look!

Beat the last scenario of #Chronicles of Crime and got the expansion #Chronicles of Crime: Noir for my Birthday 

Played #Space Base for the first time and lost to my wife.

Also got to play my favorite racing game #The Quest for El Dorado
