The campaign’s total currently rests at $141, 017 at the time of this writing, with less than twenty hours to go in the campaign. You can read the official description for the 2-4 player card base board game below:
In Deadly Premonition: The Board Game you and your fellow detectives must take on the task of protecting the innocent, incriminating the guilty and work out who might not be who they say they are. With a hidden killer amongst the detectives, the race is on to identify a suspect as an accomplice in order track down the true killer.
The mechanics found in Deadly Premonition are unique and original concepts formed around our vision for the game. Embark on competitive battles to manipulate your own board toward a victory condition, while simultaneously sabotaging your co-detectives. There is also a hidden identity element to shake things up and reward observation and intuition.
You have each been assigned a line-up of six townsfolk to investigate. Your suspects begin in the “incriminated” row until you provide evidence that they should be presumed innocent. Once all your suspects have been cleared of guilt and you have proven yourself to be a trusted detective, you can begin to go on the offence to identify which player is the hidden killer by extracting information from incriminated suspects on their board. Correctly identifying an accomplice of the hidden killer wins you the game!
