Game Overview

Doubt is in the air!

How much can you tell about a person from their clothes or moods? Is it possible to work out their occupation or secret by what they have in their bag? That’s what you’ll have to do. Answer five questions and listen carefully to what others have to say about themselves. Try to guess who’s who and become the shrewdest detective ever!

Dubious is a game of deduction where each player creates a story for their Character and tries to get the majority of the players guess their Occupation and Secret. At the same time, each player will have to listen carefully to what others have to say about themselves and prove their detective finesse.

English review by Casual Game Insider Magazine – Reading time: 3 min.

Dubious is at its best when fully embracing the atmosphere and roleplaying aspects of the game. Having three different settings was an excellent choice, and each brings a little different feel to the table.
Dubious makes for an excellent evening with enough balance to be a little tricky and plenty of room to get silly and ham up the acting.

I believe Dubious is a great game to introduce the mechanic of social deduction and role playing into a game group with a variety of gamers.

Un vrai plaisir à interpréter, à chercher parmi les indices donnés par les autres. Un jeu de rôle dans lequel vous orientez les déductions des autres pour vous révéler dans la juste mesure. Le matériel est de qualité, les illustrations sont magnifiques. Voilà un jeu que j’ai envie de proposer à tous types de joueurs!

Un jeu pas si évident qu’il n’en a l’air mais très très sympa
