I am very excited to share my review of something a little bit different today. This is a brand new card game that would make the perfect stocking filler!
Welcome to Edwardian England. The Lord of the Manor is dead! The servants are our lead suspects and it’s up to you to unearth the evidence, seek out the suspects and catch the culprit in order to scupper the other sleuths, and win this game of murder!
There’s more than one way to catch a killer though. So what’s it gonna be? Good Cop or Bad Cop? These two game versions come with their own set of rules and tactics to crack the case and finger your suspect, but will you use fair play or FOUL PLAY?
The Game is Afoot! Playing as detective, you’ll need to find the three evidence cards that point to a specific suspect in order to catch a killer in this crazy criminal caper. Will you uncover them in the crime scene? Could the other detectives be willing to collaborate and share their findings? Or will you resort to more tricky tactics, and plunder the proof you need to solve this crime?
My husband and I sat down to play this and decided right away to go with the ‘Bad Cop’ version. We are both avid card game fans, especially when we are on holiday, so we are always looking for a new addition to our pack and Foul Play definitely makes a great addition.
We did find the rules a little confusing to begin with so we had a look on the website and found it extremely helpful. Generally, the game is straight forward enough to play and the cards themselves are quite self explanatory. It reminded us very much of Cluedo but it is much easier to carry with you anywhere you go. The game took us about 20-30mins to play each time which suited us perfectly.
Foul Play is great fun and is a game you could definitely play time and time again. The only thing that would have made it better for us was more players as it would most certainly become extremely competitive but ALOT of fun!
I recommend that you order your pack today for Christmas, you will not be disappointed!
