Review for deception murder in hong kong

Price was $38.75. A fun deduction game, and it is a deduction game, you can use information to try to figure out what is going one, meanwhile the killer is trying to bend the situation to make it look like others are guilty. Have played this game several times and it seems like the detectives are slightly more likely to win, but its pretty close. Also the games go quickly so you will end playing several times.

Preface

This has been a no fail game for any group i've brought it to, whether or not they were experienced board gamers. This is the kind of game that your friends will ask you to break out again the next time they come over. We love all trying to put the murder into a narrative and telling each other how we think it happened. Everyone has these elaborate stories because there are lots of clues, some of which matter and some of which do not. The best way to weed out the clues that don't matter is to work in all the clues into murder story, and see which clues change in the next round. This way, the climax of the game is not like the anti-climactic board game clue, where you would say, "i think john committed the murder with the scarf and left behind the playing card. " it's more like, "ok, i think john was playing a high stakes game of poker in an abandoned factory with someone he met on craigslist. Everyone was dressed warmly because the factory did not have good heating. After winning a big hand, his opponent attempted to argue his way out of paying the debt. There was a scuffle, and in a fit of rage, he strangled the deadbeat to death with his own scarf. " these stories are the highlight of the game. It's the best when the murderer has a really good alternative story that the other players buy into, and after he gets away with the murder, everyone goes back to the clues and realizes how they were duped. The Best Deception: Murder in Hong Kong as-of ( Feb 2020 ) | Grey Fox Games-Toys And Games Review Bonus Deception: Murder in Hong Kong For 4-12 players. 15-20 minute playing time. Ages 12 and up .

Deception: Murder in Hong Kong Review (GFG96761)

Pros. * easy setup. * short play time. * plays up to 12. . Cons. * some of the tiles the forensic scientist use can be utterly useless. * we found the means and clue cards should have been bigger. . This game is an absolute blast! i have mysterium and we found it somewhat interesting, and have pulled it out a few times, but this game just destroys it. Yes they are totally different, but kind of have the same 'clue' feeling, trying to figure out who did it. If we have a choice to play only one, it will always be deception! . . With handing out the role cards to everyone, and 4 means cards and 4 clue cards to all but the forensic scientist, not game will ever be the same! this is a total party game. The most i have played with so far is 7, and for the most part, nobody was sitting in their seat. They were all standing, or walking around the table to get a good look at each others cards, and it got decently loud with people accusing each other. This game is a must in my opinion! -N. Audrey

Secret Hitler

Secret hitler is a dramatic game of political intrigue and betrayal set in 1930's germany. Players are secretly divided into two teams - liberals and fascists. Known only to each other, the fascists coordinate to sow distrust and install their cold-blooded leader. The liberals must find and stop the secret hitler before it's too late. Secret hitler introduces new mechanics to the hidden-identity game genre. The first is the element of randomness. When laws are passed, the president draws three policies, passes two to the chancellor, and the chancellor enacts one. Only the enacted policy is revealed, so players have to rely on the president and chancellor's word to know what got discarded. The deck has a known initial composition (11 fascist policies, 6 liberal policies), and players can roughly track deck contents based on what the president and chancellor report, though someone might have lied about what was discarded. That means players can form reasonable expectations and plan around probability, but they can also manipulate future probabilities and expectations in a way that benefits their team. The second new mechanic is the "hitler" identity: if hitler is elected as chancellor after the third fascist policy has already been enacted, the game ends immediately and the fascists win. This means hitler will spend most of the game playing as a liberal to gain players' trust. Once the third fascist policy is enacted, anyone who has helped the group becomes immediately suspect; if the liberals make a wrong move at this point, they lose immediately. This creates incredible moments of tension and relief in the game.

Spyfall Card Game

Walk a mile in the shoes of a spy! or was it a kilometer in clogs? spyfall is an easy-to-learn card game of bluffing, probing questions, clever answers, and suspicion. At the start of each round, players receive a secret card letting them know where they are - a casino, space station, pirate ship, circus, (30 unique locations! ) - except that one player receives the spy card instead of the location. The spy doesn't know where he is, but wins the round if he can figure it out before he blows his cover! players then start asking each other questions during the intense 8-minute rounds. Non-spy players want to ask questions and give answers that prove to the other players that they know where they are. But watch out! if your questions and answers are too specific, the spy will easily guess the location and win, so you need to practice a bit of subtlety. But if your questions and answers are too generic, you might be accused of being the spy. The spy will also sometimes be asked questions (just like any other player would) and have to come up with questions of his own, without knowing anything about where he is! if you listened carefully to the other players, you'll be able to come up with a plausible question or answer. Hopefully.

Sheriff of Nottingham

I say, what a fun romp this was. This game can best be described as smuggling goods: the game. This, like the resistance, is a game that runs on personality. Play with a lifeless crowd, this game falls flat. Play with an animated group who likes to roleplay and isn't afraid to talk smack, and you've got yourself a winner. . Components are nice. Solid coins, detailed, colourful artwork, and a nice sturdy box. The app addition from the website adds to the atmosphere. However, fair warning: those snaps are way too tight, and buttons have been reported to rip out on the very first playthrough with many people. My friends and i went into the game knowing this, and fortunately, all of them survived. My advice is to find a tailor who could whip you up some alternative bags out of felt and some buttons/velcro that won't tear right out. Be careful. . Other than that, great game. You will have a blast.

In sheriff of nottingham, players will take turns stepping into the shoes of the sheriff himself, while others act as merchants attempting to bring their goods into the city for profit! beware though, while many may act as honest merchants, there is always the possibility of contraband being smuggled into the city!

This game was a hit at family game night! . . A truly rich experience - much richer than you'd think from reading the game's description. I had this on my to-buy list for over a year and always passed, thinking it looked, well, a bit boring. "i'm paying how much for this? to do what? put cards in a bag? " well gosh, was i wrong! . . This game is a hoot! a 100% grand-slam! i love it! here's some reasons why:. + repeated play with the same group isn't dull: players refine and switch up their strategy, leading to tense, comical game moments as someone is unexpectedly caught by a usually-lax sheriff who has decided to play hard ball, or as someone sneaks in tons of contraband who normally is honest. This sort of relationship within the game keeps things fresh and exciting, and players are eager to replay to implement new schemes. + the game is precisely as long as it needs to be, and never drags on: it ends at that happy point of "aww, i could've kept going! ", which many games don't know how to do anymore. This is one of those games that your group will say "let's play it again! " before the points are even tallied. + rich point-scoring system: this was a blast. Who will be the cheese queen? who had royal goods tucked away to blow out the scores? this keeps the game quite exciting! . + gorgeous art: i wasn't sold at first, personally, but after seeing the game in-person, i must admit, it's quite beautifully done and it really suits the mood. . If you're on the fence, if you're saying, "hey, why would i pay this much for a game about lying about cards in a little bag? what's the big deal? " let me tell you: you need this game, you will love this game, and you will slap yourself for not getting it sooner! -Notice from Q. Cindy, Massachusetts

Great party game. It is really easy to learn and can be fun for a large range of ages. The concept of the game is very unique and is a good change for usual board games. It really lives up to its description:. . The sheriff of nottingham is a fun and engaging game for all where each player will have the chance to step into the shoes of the sheriff himself! other players, acting as merchants will attempt to bring their goods into the city for profit. Beware though, while many may act as honest merchants, there is always the possibility of contraband being smuggled into the city! . . I highly recommend this game, my family has a great time everytime we play!

- N. PearceThis game is a fantastic way to start or end a game night. Best with 4-5 people. Best if the people playing are a fun group, and are willing to not take the game too seriously. Games take 40-60 minutes, depending on the number of players. . There is no perfect strategy. You can be honest all the time and collect points with your legit goods, or try to amp up your score be sneaking in higher-value contraband. If you're caught, it hurts your wallet. If you get away with it, everyone knows, and that plays into how people deal with you in the future. . There are many nuances. You can bribe the sheriff into letting you pass with your cargo without an inspection, to get some contraband past him. You can attempt to bribe the sheriff, hoping he will inspect your legit cargo, and pay you for his mistrust. Everyone takes turns being the sheriff, and making tough decisions. Can you read the other players real intentions? they might lie to get you to do what they want. . You can play an honest merchant the whole game, and then switch to dishonest for big points when the sheriff doesn't expect it. But maybe he's thinking the same thing about your tactics. What will he do? will he inspect your cargo, or let you pass without an inspection? would a "donation" to his re-election campaign streamline the process, or raise suspicion and cause an inspection? make your move, and live with the consequences. It's a riot. . With 4 types of goods available, everyone is trying to be the 1 or 2 merchant in some of them, to earn bonus points. It pays to stock up on one or two of them, and ignore the rest.

Our gaming group loves the social-deduction trend that has been sweeping the board game world recently (coup, resistance, werewolf etc). This is an interesting take on the genre which emphasizes players discussing with each other the specifics of what they are trying to bring to the market (or smuggle in! ) rather than the "hidden role" style. Putting one player in each round "in charge" is a great way to shake things up as each player will handle "their" round differently. You will find that your group builds meta layers of strategy the more you play (david never lies, but wait - he did this time! ). . If you like social deduction games, this will be hours of fun.

Blood Rage

In blood rage, each player controls their own viking clanÍs warriors, leader, and ship. Ragnar k has come, and itÍs the end of the world! itÍs the vikingsÍ last chance to go down in a blaze of glory and secure their place in valhalla at odinÍs side! for a viking there are many pathways to glory. You can invade and pillage the land for its rewards, crush your opponents in epic battles, fulfill quests, increase your clan's stats, or even die gloriously either in battle or from ragnar k, the ultimate inescapable doom. Most player strategies are guided by the cards drafted at the beginning of each of the three game rounds (or ages). These ñgodsÍ giftsî grant you numerous boons for your clan including: increased viking strength and devious battle strategies, upgrades to your clan, or even the aid of legendary creatures from norse mythology. They may also include various quests, from dominating specific provinces, to having lots of your vikings sent to valhalla. Most of these cards are aligned with one of the norse gods, hinting at the kind of strategy they support. For example, thor gives more glory for victory in battle, heimdall grants you foresight and surprises, tyr strengthens you in battle, while the trickster loki actually rewards you for losing battles, or punishes the winner. Players must choose their strategies carefully during the draft phase, but also be ready to adapt and react to their opponentsÍ strategies as the action phase unfolds. Battles are decided not only by the strength of the figures involved, but also by cards played in secret. By observing your opponentÍs actions and allegiances to specific gods, you may predict what card they are likely to play, and plan accordingly. Winning battles is not always the best course of action, as the right card can get you even more rewards by being crushed. The only losing strategy in blood rage is to shy away from battle and a glorious death!

Super fun game. This is our go to party game. Very easy to pick up. We always like to compare board games. This game reminds me of a mixture between mysterium ultimate werewolf. I this is a good game for groups 4+. Ideally i think it's most enjoyable with 6+ because you get to play with the accomplice and witness. It's like mysterium is the sense that one person is giving clues to everyone to help find the murder. The person giving the clue is the forensic sciences and hes giving clues to the detective to find the true culprit.

A fun deduction game, and it is a deduction game, you can use information to try to figure out what is going one, meanwhile the killer is trying to bend the situation to make it look like others are guilty. Have played this game several times and it seems like the detectives are slightly more likely to win, but its pretty close. Also the games go quickly so you will end playing several times.

Best deception: murder in hong kong (grey fox games) in review

If you're a fan of deduction/traitor/bluffing games of any type (resistance, secret hitler, werewolf, mafia; and even games that include these mechanics like bsg, camelot and sherrif of nottingham), this game is a no-brainer must-buy. If you absolutely hate those types of games, then this might be the one to change your mind - it's that good! . . Every single person that i've played this game with (gamers and non-gamers alike) loved it. No "stressful traitor burn-out" at all with this game, even after several in-a-row play-throughs. Since we introduced deception into our board gaming group, it's never been played *only* once during a play session. . The price fluctuates a lot due to its popularity, but honestly after having played it, i'd pay double and still feel like i got my money's worth!

W. Janice, Doncaster says

*update*. Kids on christmas break played no less than 20 rounds of this game and didn't want to stop. Next day, they asked if we could play again. My 18yr old, who is ultra competitive, even wanted to play. Why he would like this, is because the player interaction outweighed any frustrations he may have with having to wait on people to make a decision. Raising the review a star because they really, really like it! . . By the way, out of 20 games, our group of five players (ages 12 to 40-something) only won once as the investigators. The murderer won ever time. The success of the investigators hinges primarily on the forensic scientist (most difficult role to play) in guiding the investigators as best as possible. . In a six player game you now add in the roles of accomplice and witness. Our investigators won 60% of the time, thanks to the witness. . . Overview:. Reprint of csi files, which i never played but have heard good things about. Initial concept is similar to mafia, werewolf, ect. Where you are using deduction to guess the identify of someone. . One person is the forensic scientist and one is the murder. These are the must-have roles. You may have the optional witness or an accomplice, depending on number of players. Most of the cards are all the different causes of death. . The forensic scientist will use tiles to give the other players clues (without talking) by putting markers on the tiles. Everyone gets 30-seconds to talk and then a tile is removed and replaced with another tile. This keeps going on until someone spends a token to guess the murderer and players win or murder wins if the guesses are wrong. . Components:. Excellent quality components on tiles, cards and token markers. . Theme:. The added asian symbols makes this feel like i'm an american detective in hong kong working with the other detectives trying to solve the crime. . The team of detectives (players) are simply "reading" the forensic scientist's report and between that and the conversation it feels like the group is really working together to solve the crime. Plus there is the murderer who is a mole in the group. . Learning curve:. Super easy to teach anyone. So easy in fact i guess you could treat this as a gateway game, which means it is easy to introduce to non-gamers and they should be able to have fun without getting overwhelmed by a bunch of rules. . Other notes:. When it is the forensic scientist's turn, they have to keep a straight face through the whole thing or they give away too much information. . When everyone has their heads down and the forensic scientist asks the murder to reveal themselves and point out the causes of death, it really is difficult in these games for folks not to hear or feel the person next to them moving. So people need to be careful and quiet when playing the murderer. . Overall:. This is not exactly my cup-of-tea, but i do like it and have fun. I'm more a 3-4hrs armies battling game kind of guy or tabletop roleplaying game if i was to pick my favorite type of game to play. Maybe i should not ding the review a star, but that's just how i feel about it. . . Right now. . On the other hand, my kids love. Just love playing mafia or werewolf at youth group and this is yet another game they are enjoying adding to the mix. It is a good party game, but requires people who won't cheat, which is why the age requirement is a bit higher than maybe expected (plus the theme has to do with murder). Overall, we really like this and it joins the other 200 games we have on our shelf. . Two-thumbs-up!

This is such an amazing game! if you enjoy games with larger groups, this is probably best one out there - with avalon close behind. I could play this game for hours at a time.

This has been a great game, to me it's like a happy medium between spyfall and the resistance. It has the same kind of feel as you get playing spyfall as you try to come up with arguments to defend yourself or accuse someone else. The nice part though is it's much less stressful to be the murderer than it is to be the spy in spyfall. In relations to the resistance, it kind of feels similar with one person being the traitor and everyone trying to say why they think someone is or isn't it, but you have more substantial evidence to back up your claims opposed in the resistance where it seems it always ends up with one person saying "you're the traitor! " and the other person just constantly saying "no i'm not for god sakes".

This is a great game. I especially love that it can be played by up to 12 people. I do not have very many games in my collection that can fit such a large group. Everyone i have introduced this game to has enjoyed it. We rarely play only one time. Everyone wants to take a turn as the clue giver. This game is deceptively difficult and yet not too complicated that my party-game hardliner friends won't take a try (and love it! ).

This game has the potential to be in every gaming circle. The resistance + mysterium + maybe a bit of code names. I appreciate that being the bad guy isn't as draining as maybe in the resistance or similar hidden role games because you're not convincing people you are good, you are explaining why somebody else's items make sense. My first time putting it on the table in a group of six and we played 5 rounds before i put it up so we didn't burn out on it! . The only negative is wish the evidence/clue cards were bigger. They can be hard to read. Also the price seems to be going up and down here on online store (i paid $33 and right now it's $38). Overall maybe my favorite hidden roles game!

Fun game for a larger group. We played with 8-9 people. Games go quickly, so it's easy to play multiple rounds. It's also easy to grasp. Will definitely be breaking this out on the next game night.

Great game for parties of 4 or greater! i can see why it won those awards. . Easy explanation/setup, fun for everyone involved!

This is a fast playing deduction game - if you're a fan of one night ultimate werewolf and/or mysterium - grab this game! one person is tge killer, only the csi knows who, they leave clues as to who done it. Follow the evidence, catch the killer. Games take under 15 minutes. While it might be, technically, a little dark for young people (after all, someone killed someone) it isn't a dark game - very easy to play with family, younger players. And the conversations cam keep it light. . There's a lot of content in the box, which really adds to multiple gameplays, without the repetitiveness

Really quickly became the game my group plays the most! it's a great game that brings good deduction mechanics and most importantly a big laughs&funs! . I played about 10 games so far (6ppl & 4ppl) and here are my impressions:. - it's really fast (15-30 depending on no. Of players) and non gamers can easily pick up and also be really good at this game. - i love the components and its quality. Though i still used card sleeves to protect the role cards. If murderer card has some distinct damage or fold it will kill the game. - it's easy to swap away your forensic scientist role without affecting the game (if you don't like the role). - murderer has much less pressure compared to other games like resistance. It's really hard to tell who the murderer is from their behaviours as everyone's cards would match some of clues given. Also guessing the murderer won't finish the game as you have to guess the 2 cards completely correctly. So it's much more proper deduction than sniffing out the bad guy(s) which i really like about the game. - i would say it's slightly easier for murderer to win. It's mainly because some of the clue tiles cannot help to guess some cards at all (e. G. Weapon is a poison and clue tile is weather). And you only get to change 2 clue tiles only. - definitely would be more fun with large number of players (i think 6-8 would be perfect). I really really really hope to see an expansion for this game as there are good room for improvements such as adding more cards, roles, events, mechanics. I am not saying this game is not great yet but i can see that it can become even greater game with more stuff. Please make an expansion !

Fun social deduction game. It's warewolf with a structure. You have information to base your guess, instead of a popularity contest. It's pretty difficult for the murderer to win, and you can just have bad luck sometimes. But, it's quick and simple and fun.

P. Veronica, Medway

This game feels like clue without all the moving around on the board. Its a fantastic logic game where you talk with the other players to try to deduce the murder scenario that has taken place based on clues provided by the forensic scientist while the murderer tries to mislead the group. . Great replay value, and everyone i've played with has enjoyed it. I recommend at least 4 people to fully enjoy the game. . Pros:. -fun discussions. -fun for bigger groups. -easy to introduce. . Cons:. -a bit unbalanced against the murderer, as they rarely win when i've played. -might not be good for quiet/shy people, as it requires lots of discussion
