Paranormal Detectives

$39.99 SRP

It has just come to an end and you are a ghost, floating in the air looking at your own body. Avenge your death by trying to communicate what happened to you to the paranormal detectives who came to inspect your body!

Do so by arranging a hangman’s knot, point at letters and symbols on a talking board, draw images by holding the hand of a detective or many other forms of interactions.

Paranormal Detectives is a competitive deduction party game where one player takes on the role of a ghost and all other players try to be the first to figure out who the victim is, in addition to how, where and why they died.

2-6 players
Ages 12+
45 minute play time

Paranormal Detectives Launch Kit

Included are 10 "story cards" for the game. These are the scenarios that the Ghost player is trying to get the other players to guess. This is a highly thematic nod to FLGSs, as the scenario is about a gamer who had a shelf of games fall on them at a store, titled "Heavy Euros"

  • 10 EXCLUSIVE story cards

In Mutants, 2-4 players have to mix and match genetics to create the ultimate warriors and demonstrate their prowess in the arena. By dominating in the arena and freezing the most valuable mutants, you gain prestige — and whoever collects the most prestige wins.

In each round, players take turns until all players have used every card in their hand. At the end of the round, the player whose token is closest to the top space of the arena track scores prestige based on the round track. The game proceeds in this way for five rounds, after which players reveal their archives and gain additional prestige based on the freeze value of the mutants they have placed there.

In more detail, on your turn you perform three steps. First, you check to see whether you crushed the competition, then you ready your mutants in play, then you take one action from the following three:
  • Breed: Gain a new mutant card to use in battle this round.
  • Incubate: Prepare a new mutant card to use in battle next round.
  • Deploy mutant: Play a mutant from your hand to your active mutant slot.

2-4 players
Ages 10+
45-60 minute play time
