Chronicles of Crime: 1900 bordspel
You are Victor Lavel, a young ambitious journalist working for a major newspaper. It’s the year 1900, the middle of the Belle Époque, and Paris flourishes.
There are so many stories to cover, the Exposition Universelle, the Summer Olympics, the opening of the first metro station, but as a Lavel, a family famous for solving crimes since the middle ages, you are murders, kidnapping, and robberies. Being a journalist helps you in being among the first to know about them and your wits often make you the first to find the preparator.
Chronicles of Crime: 1900 is a stand-alone, cooperative game of crime investigation. Using Scan & Play technology to mix digital and board games allows for many crime investigation stories to be told with the same components. Interrogate the suspects, collect evidence, and solve some escape-room-style puzzles incorporated into each scenario.
Important: This game requires an app to play, but once downloaded no Internet connection is needed to play. You currently need Android 4.4 or newer, or iOS 8.0 or newer to run the app.
