With so many options how do you choose your first cold case files game?
Here are our five top tips to help you decide.
There are so many cold case files games out there it can be hard to choose one that’s right for you when you want to play your very first game.
Take a look at some of our suggestions and see if this helps you narrow down the cold case files game you want to play first.
- The number of players. Some cold case files games are designed for only one player, while others can be played by multiple people. If you are playing with a group, you will need to choose a game that is suitable for the number of players.
- The difficulty level. Some cold case files games are easy to solve, while others are more difficult. If you are playing with a group of experienced players, you may want to choose a more difficult game. However, if you are playing with a group of first-time players, you may want to choose an easier game. Most games will tell you whether they are easy, medium or hard. How much of a challenge are you looking for? If it’s your first game you don’t want to be overwhelmed.
- The theme.There are many different themes of cold case files games. Some games are based on real crimes, while others are based on fictional crimes. If you have a specific interest in a particular topic, you may want to choose a game that is based on that topic. Our games are all fictional games although, as true crime podcast addicts, some of our games may have clues inspired by true crime.
- Time. How much time are you going to have to solve the case? If you’re only going to have your friends round for two hours picka game that gives you an idea of how long the game might take but remember if it is your first game it may take you longer than the creator suggests.
- The price. Cold case files games can range in price from a few pounds to several hundred pounds – particularly if you opt for a series. If you are on a budget, you may want to choose a game that is more affordable. However, if you are willing to spend more money, you may be able to find a game that is more complex and challenging.
- Delivery. Cold case files games are created all around the world so make sure the one you want will deliver to you.
- Download or physical. Some cold case files games can be purchased and downloaded to your laptop but then you either have to look at the evidence online or you have to print everything yourself. It may feel like you are saving money but with a physical game delivered to your door you have everything as the game creator intended you to have it. Our evidence can be printed on different coloured sheets and our photos are in full colour too.
- How graphic do you want your game? Some games can be more graphic in their content than others. Our games are not graphic or scary. Think about those who will be playing the game with you. Do you want your fellow detectives having nightmares?
Once you have considered these factors, you will be able to choose a cold case file game that is perfect for you and your group. You certainly want a game that you can solve for your first investigation rather than being overwhelmed with evidence and too complex a case.
