You are Victor Lavel, a young ambitious journalist working for a major newspaper. It’s the year 1900, the middle of the Belle Époque, and Paris flourishes.
There are so many stories to cover, the Exposition Universelle, the Summer Olympics, the opening of the first metro station, but as a Lavel, a family famous for solving crimes since the middle ages, you are murders, kidnapping, and robberies. Being a journalist helps you in being among the first to know about them and your wits often make you the first to find the preparator.
Chronicles of Crime: 1900 is a stand-alone, cooperative game of crime investigation. Using Scan & Play technology to mix digital and board games allows for many crime investigation stories to be told with the same components. Interrogate the suspects, collect evidence, and solve some escape-room-style puzzles incorporated into each scenario.
Chronicles of Crime – The Millennium Series features three standalone Chronicles of Crime games that utilize the same great Chronicles of Crime system, but provide interesting gameplay twists and refreshing settings, that span an entire millennium from 1400 to 1900 and finally 2400. Players will be able to experience Paris like never before as they solve cases across three distinct time periods.
