Dig Deeper Case for Detective Now Available

Want to get to the bottom of the case, solve the crime, and be the hero? Well, in Dig Deeper, you can. It's a new stand-alone case for Detective that was written by Rob Daviau and is available now from Portal Games. You might want to put on an extra pot of coffee.

From the announcement:

Portal Games is proud to announce that Detective: Signature Series - Dig Deeper is launching in retail today.

Dig Deeper is a standalone Detective case written by Rob Daviau (Pandemic Legacy, Cthulhu: Death May Die, Downforce). Rob takes us all by surprise, getting us to Boston in 70′. For those of us who remember crime TV shows like Starsky & Hutch it’s time to turn good music on and let the sentiment and memories take us for the ride to the past.

Spring 1977. A murder takes place in Arlington near Boston. The victim was a town selectman with a promising career, Peter Colvin, age 32. He was found dead near his car in the parking lot behind Town Hall. You have only 4 days to solve the mystery who killed him and why.

Since the case takes place in the past, new mechanics have been added to the game. Investigators can seek information with the help of Librarians and actively interview the witnesses.

Dig Deeper is an expansion to the award-winning Detective: A Modern Crime Board Game. It shares the same concept and uses most of the base rules, with a few changes reflecting old investigating techniques from the past.

Detective: Signature Series has been created to allow the best storytellers in the industry to take the Detective engine and use it to tell their stories. Dig Deeper written by Rob Daviau is the first in the series.
