Detective nominated for the Laurel of the Republic!

Detective: A Modern Crime Board Game was nominated for the annual Laurel of the Republic award, by the Cardboard Republic.

The Laurel nominees are broken down not among traditional categories, but rather along these six archetypes. Each of them caters to a different philosophy of what gamers prefer in their gaming experiences, both accentuating and celebrating the variety of play styles that exist within board gaming overall.

Detective: A Modern Crime Board Game was nominated in the Immersionists category, along with Chronicles of Crime, Kitchen Rush, Obsession, and Western Legends.

We are very thankful for the nomination, we would like to congratulate other nominees, and we are awaiting the results!

We are bookworms. Movie maniacs. Story addicts. We grew up reading Tolkien, Howard, Herbert, Dick, Lem… We were watching Willow, Blade Runner, Never Ending Story, Robin Hood…

And yet, we don’t write books… we don’t make movies. We don’t make those things, because we make games. We make games that tell stories.
