Long-awaited Detective: Season 1 premiere from Portal Games

We are proud to present the highly-expected premiere of the game Detective: Season 1. This is the most important title of this year from Portal Games, by Ignacy Trzewiczek, Marzena Nowak-Trzewiczek, and Weronika Spyra.

Season One is a fully standalone game from the Detective series, in which players work together to solve three mysterious crimes. Detective: Season 1 is a set of 3 separate cases that can be solved in any order. Each of the investigations is set in a different place and time, they do not form a campaign. The rules are more simplified than in the original game.

  • Fans of the Detective will find three new, engaging cases in the box.
  • People who didn’t play Detective: A Modern Crime Board Game can successfully reach for Season One as the entry title to the Detective series
  • Investigations are short, each takes 90-120 minutes
  • Season 1 is simpler than Detective: A Modern Crime Board Game: there is one timeline (not divided into investigation days) and one type of skill token
  • The Investigators’ characters have unique characteristics and division of roles in the game
  • There are 24 portraits of suspects in the box. You can pin them to a corkboard and connect them with red yarn to create a network of criminal connections
  • We have put new types of material on the Antares website which will involve you in the case even more
  • Detective games, including Season 1, can be played online


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.
