Ace Detective. The year is 1941. Within 8 months, the United States will join in the war raging in Europe and brewing in the Pacific. However for the moment, the lives of most Americans continue in relative peace…unless you live in the City by the Bay. In San Francisco, crimes, mysteries, and good old fashioned murder present unique challenges to detectives and residents alike - especially if you happen to be a detective investigating a dirty backroom deal inside a Neon lit nightclub, or a future criminal plotting against a spouse under a flickering streetlamp. It is up to you, the players, to create the story. Ace Detective is a StoryTelling Card Game that rewards imagination and the turn of a good tale. Play your cards right, tell your story, and be rewarded the Plot Points needed to place clues on the suspects of the crime. Everyone in this gritty city is competing to tell their own story...to become the true Ace Detective. From the designer of Arkham Horror, Defenders of the Realm including vintage art from Black Mask Magazine.
