Description:

A crime wave hits the city. The police round up the usual suspects: including you. In order to escape prison, you’ll have to accuse your fellow criminals of the crimes under investigation.

Criminals is a psychological party card game for 3-9 players, in the style of such games as Mafia/Werewolf and The Resistance, from the game design team of Origins Award-winning and Spiel Des Jahres-recommended game designer Kory Heath (ZendoWhy Did The Chicken…?Uptown/Blockers) and Origins Award-winning and Ennie Award-winning game designer Dave Chalker (Get Bit!)

Each player is dealt a crime, with an extra crime belonging to the mysterious Crime Boss. Each round, a random crime will come up under investigation. Interrogate and accuse each other to try to figure out who is guilty of the crime, or if it could be the Crime Boss. If you are accused and are guilty, you’re eliminated from the game. If you have an alibi for the crime, you’re given the chance to try and snitch on who you think committed the crime. If you’re snitch correctly, you win, but otherwise, you’re eliminated. The game ends when someone snitches correctly, all but one player are eliminated, or if anyone is brave enough to try and confront the Crime Boss with his crime.

Criminals is an update/re-release of the original version from 2007. This edition of Criminals features improved game play, heavy development and playtesting, refined rules, and new graphic design of full color cards.

I've enjoyed Werewolf and many other variations, and Criminals is my favorite. It's fascinating, the decisions that players make thorough the game. Even when down to two players, there are still interesting decisions. [...]

Psychological Party Games are not my preferred genre, but of that genre this is my preferred game. Offering a bit more tangible evidence to work off then other in the genre I have experienced, Criminals is an excellent game for anyone that loves the genre [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
