If you’re looking for a logic/deduction game that’s more grown up than Clue, then make sure to check this one out! I’m also loving the art style for this one.

English review by Games Fanatic – Reading time: 7 min.

Flawless styling, thematic mechanisms and immense gameplay variety (including 8 scenarios) offer players a true feast. The game is neither difficult nor long (sessions wrap up in an hour) and every minute spent with it is an intense challenge for both the killer and the detectives seeking them. <…> Intent To Kill is a unique game. And it stays with me at least until I renew my detective license.
