Detective Demo Kit

Retailer Support Program: Detective Demo Kit

Portal Games is happy to announce the Detective Demo Kit! Now, anyone curious about the Detective experience may go to their local game store and attempt to solve the special demo case: Suburbia! The kit includes everything a retailer needs to run a full stand-alone game of Detective, without the need to tear open a copy of the game, and without spoiling anything from the base game.

The kit is non-consumable, so there is no limit to the number of groups that can run through the demo. Having different groups play through the case to compete and see who can get the top score to be crowned the best investigative team is as simple as resetting the case deck in numerical order, scrapping the notes, and wiping the whiteboard (definitely get a whiteboard)! The case included in the kit is lighter and simpler than the cases included in the base game, making it much easier to play in an environment that may not be as quiet and focused as a dining room table.

Don’t know about Detective? Detective: A Modern Crime Board Game is the new release from Portal Games that provides an experience unlike any game you have ever played. Don’t play a detective, be a detective! Dive into a world full of hidden information, mysteries, crime, and secrets that some would wish to stay hidden. The game demands focus, rewards attention, and challenges players from start to finish. Take notes, follow leads, and dig deeper on a hunch. Dive into an fully interactive online database full of suspect information, questionings, and more. Match Fingerprints or DNA to get your evidence. Browse online, on Wikipedia or Google Maps to connect the dots and fill in the blanks.

    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.
