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.
In the co-operative trick-taking game The Crew: Quest for Planet Nine, the players set out as astronauts on an uncertain space adventure. What about the rumors about the unknown planet about? The eventful journey through space extends over 50 exciting missions. But this game can only be defeated by meeting common individual tasks of each player. In order to meet the varied challenges, communication is essential in the team. But this is more difficult than expected in space.
With each mission, the game becomes more difficult. After each mission, the game can be paused and continued later. During each mission, it is not the amount of tricks, but the right tricks at the right time that count.
The team completes a mission only if every single player is successful in fulfilling their tasks.
