48 Hour Crime Scene : Digital Forensics

A Crime-Solving Game

After a vicious murder has been committed, you and your colleagues are the detectives tasked with solving the case, but you only have 48 hours at the crime scene to connect the clues, interview the suspects, investigate the victim's computer, and uncover the truth of what happened. 

Overview

48 Hour Crime Scene: Digital Forensics is a stand-alone expansion for 24 Hour Crime Scene. 48 Hour Crime Scene contains 24 Hour Crime Scene within it, so you don't need both games to play. The game is for one to four players where each player assumes the role of a detective investigating the crime scene of a murder.

Over the course of the game you will discover more about the crime scene, discover clues, collect evidence, find suspects and interview them.

As a player, it is up to you to invent the clues and information that you discover. For instance, when you discover a Clue, you decide what that Clue is, and then draw it onto the Crime Scene, anywhere you'd like. It will then be up to you and the other detectives to connect all of the clues and evidence later.

By the end of the game you will have gathered enough evidence to charge one of the

suspects with the murder. 


Digital Forensics - What's New?

48 Hour Crime Scene introduces 24 new cards, and 48 new prompts to be used in your game. Not only that, there is a brand new place to investigate: the victim's computer. One suit of cards (the diamonds) feature 24 prompts related to the victim's computer that will help you build an even more comprehensive overview of the crime, and learn even more information about the victim and suspects!

Turn Order

On your turn you will do the following:

1. Draw a card, read the related prompt, and then resolve it.

2. You will also take an additional action where you can add a clue to the crime scene, turn a clue into evidence, interview a suspect or even consult with the other detectives.

Variants

Included with the game are alternative game modes:

Serial Killer Mode: A campaign-style mode with a single killer and three victims that plays over a series of games.

Solo Mode: A solo version of the game that plays almost identically to multiplayer mode.

12/24/36/48 Hour Crime Scene: We're also including a way to create your own unique game variant!

Travel Edition

If you enjoy playing on the go you can also add the 24 Hour Crime Scene - Travel Edition to your order. 

24 Hour Crime Scene - Travel Edition is a fun, story-telling game for two to five players. It’s ideal for long car rides, train journeys, and sitting around campfires. It is a stripped-back version of the full game.

24 Hour Crime Scene - Travel Edition comes as both a .pdf file and .png files so that you can save it on your phone in either a book app or your photo library. You’ll receive both so how you use it is up to you!


24 Hour Crime Scene

You don't need 24 Hour Crime Scene to play 48 Hour Crime Scene but 24 Hour Crime Scene had its own rules and set-up that is not included in 48 Hour Crime Scene. You can add 24 Hour Crime Scene to your order, to own the complete collection!

Please clarify, at the top of the page it's written: "48 Hour Crime Scene contains 24 Hour Crime Scene within it, so you don't need both games to play".

In the middle we can read: "Included with the game are alternative game modes[...]12/24/36/48 Hour Crime Scene: We're also including a way to create your own unique game variant".

And then goes the bottom of the page: "You don't need 24 Hour Crime Scene to play 48 Hour Crime Scene but 24 Hour Crime Scene had its own rules and set-up that is not included in 48 Hour Crime Scene".

Sooo it contains the 24 Hour Crime Scene as a variant, but it doesn't include its rules?

Thanks for your question. To clarify, the rules for 24 Hour Crime Scene and 48 Hour Crime Scene are almost identical, there is just a difference in how you set up the game.

Essentially, 24 Hour Crime Scene includes 24 prompts and 48 Hour Crime Scene includes 48 prompts (24 of those prompts being from 24 Hour Crime Scene). 

48 Hour Crime Scene only includes the rules to set up a game of 48 Hour Crime Scene and not the original rules for 24 Hour Crime Scene.


As for the variants, 48 Hour Crime Scene includes a way for you to create and structure your own prompt deck to change the length of the game.

I hope this clarifies it for you!
