Partners: A Roleplaying Game for Two Players
You know how it goes. One's a real straight shooter. The other's a total wildcard. But on the case they are always...Partners.
Partners is a unique new storytelling game for two players from award-winning designer Steve Dee. A love-letter to the police procedural and mystery of the week television genre, players take the roles of detectives hot on a murder case each session of play. Instead of players trying to discover a plot created by a GM or freeform a solution, random card draws slowly reveal which suspects are in play and what kind of clues they provide. Only when the final card is drawn in the final scene will the detectives - and the players - know who did it.
Designed to suit anyone from experienced roleplayers to crime fiction writers to novices who just love the genre, Partners is the perfect game for anyone who cannot get enough of solving mysteries, and being an irascible duo along the way. Published as a beautiful softback book and only needing a single deck of cards it can be played anywhere by anyone who has ever seen a cop show, and you can even expand it out for more than two if you wish. It also plays well online making it a great gift in these isolation times.
