MicroMacro: Crime City Game
Welcome to Crime City – a city with crime lurking around every corner. Deadly secrets, sneaky robberies and cold-blooded murders are commonplace around here. The local police are no longer in control of the situation. Therefore, your investigative skills are now required!
MicroMacro is a cooperative detective game. Together you will solve tricky criminal cases, identify motives, find evidence and convict the perpetrators. A keen eye is equally as important as clever deduction - this is real detective work!
This unique game involves players joining together to solve mysterious cases throughout Crime City. Each case is disclosed in a small deck of cards, and is solved by searching for people, places, objects, and scenes on the included map. The large map of the city is 29.5” x 43.3”. Each game includes 16 cases, labeled with difficulty level and age appropriateness. Although age appropriateness is noted, parents should review the cases before allowing children to play. Both games in this series are stand-alone games; however, the Full House edition is the second game in the series and may make slight references to the original game. Playing the games in order is not necessary. Due to small print on the map, a card-sized magnifier is included.
The age-appropriateness recommendations are labeled by three different symbols. The first level contains “no depictions of murder, physical violence, or sexuality.” The second “contains depictions of accidents, murders, and corpses along with the circumstances surrounding the death.” The third and last contains cases where “themes and representations are explicit.” “Even though there are no direct depictions of violence in the game, many of the cases involve murders, relationship dramas and other ‘adult themes’”. Game includes a city map, 120 cards (16 crime cases), 1 magnifying glass, and instructions. ~ Brianna
