Dig Deeper

Boston has seen better days. Lots of protests. Civil unrest. Racial tensions. It’s a brooding city struggling to find its footing. Some days it’s simmering. Other days it’s cooking. What a time to fight crime. You drive a sweet car. You wear a leather coat. Maybe you crack a skull or two now and again.The 1970s are interesting and this week looks to be no different.

Dig Deeper is an expansion to Detective: A Modern Crime Board Game.  It is the first take in a fascinating adventure for a Detective line – best storytellers in the industry taking the Detective engine and are using it to tell their stories.

Rob Daviau’s Case opens the series, and Rob takes us all by surprise, getting us to Boston in 70′. For those of us who remember crime TV shows like Starsky & Hutch it’s time to turn good music and let the sentiment and memories take us for the ride to the past.

Detective: A Modern Crime Board Game is a fully co-operative, immersive, detective experience. This is a game of wits and deduction, a full game night experience – a single game session can last up to 3 or more hours. It is also rules-light, meaning, that the most powerful tool at your disposal is your team, your imagination, and your own mind.

In this challenging, story-driven game for 1-5 players, you will play as group of Antares National Investigation Agency members. You are going to tackle five different cases and solve them in order. Each of them affecting the next. Together they will form a campaign that will put your skills to the test.

If you are looking for a modern detective simulator, this is the game for you.

Welcome to PORTAL GAMES

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.
