About

Restaurant Detective is a party game that allows each player to act as the detective.

The GOAL of the game is to find out who is the Food Thief, the one who sneaked our Guest's food, and meanwhile acts in the guise of a detective but actually protecting himself from being caught.

During the game, each player starts their investigation in the restaurant. Detectives need to cooperate with the Guest to gather hints/evidence and try to deduce who is the Food Thief.

Restaurant Detective is also a bluffing game with trying to convince or misleading others, especially being the Food Thief.

Restaurant Detective includes a large amount of cards about different food, clue, hints, characters. We can say every new game is a unique experience of every player.

It was a grand and famous restaurant.
A group of detectives was doing investigation on a dead body.
"This is typically a MURDER case and the cause of death is...killed by bitten?"
"Yes. The culprit bitten part of the victim and escaped."
"It is impossible. The culprit should not able to escape from our eyes..." Every detective started to think and they seemed to know...actually the culprit is among the detectives!
Suddenly, the litigant who discovered the victim shouted out: "I got some clues."
Detectives all turned their eyes to the litigant. "I think...the culprit must like to eat burger!"
Every detective felt so disappointed after hearing that because the victim actually is a BURGER!
The litigant is the guest who wants to enjoy the burger while detectives are the staff in this restaurant.
So, can they catch the culprit...or the Food Thief?
OK, let the brain game begins...

Each player begins the game with an Identity Card which show the team you belong to: 

The Restaurant Detective Team OR The Food Thief Team.
Beside the Guest, everyone hide their Identity during the game.

As the Guest: You deliver Hints to the Detectives.
During the game, you try to put the right Hints Cards to corresponding Hints Track and this give clue to Detectives!

As the Detective: You try to catch the Food Thief.
During the game, you investigate the restaurant by revealing Dish Cards and deliver right Hints Cards to the Guest.

As the Food Thief: you prevent to be caught!
You should always hide yourself by pretending one of the Detectives. The more good you act like you are not the Food Thief, the higher chance you win the game!

Important: 
Bluffing is one of the most important part in Restaurant Detective. During the game, there will be a lot of discussion about who is the Food Thief. As a good Detective/Food Thief, you always need to perform good in such discussion. Talk well and persuade others to focus on someone you suspect, or maybe draw the attention out of you if you are the Food Thief.

Board Games Maelstrom: The game has lot of fun. If you like party game, you're gonna love it.

Logan Chops Reviews: Restaurant Detectives has a really good bluffing element. It is a real good concept of game.

The Kwarenteen: The anime style kind of artwork of all the characters is really cool.  Overall the artwork gets an "A".

Risks and challenges

This is our first Kickstarter project. As a startup, we need to well use our board game playing experience on board game development which is already a big challenge to us. Especially on printing/shipping, this is really a brand new experience of us. We have put a lot of time to make sure every part of the production is in control with a good quality we expected.

Beside the production, game development is another important part in any game project. Nearly a year of time has been put on developing the core game play with lots of game testing and receiving opinion of our friends (Thank you!). The game theme have been changed also after we found the game is too serious about theme of "Detective", and added component of "Restaurant" and "Food Thief". Drafting the game rule/content is another challenge to us. As we are not native speaker of English, please forgive any mistake found on the wording in our page/game.

We need to say we love and take great care on our product. We believe every comment can help us to improve. So, suggestions and comments are always welcome and this would make our game better and better. With our promise, we will put our eye on the printing/shipping part to make sure everyone can get the game and enjoy it with your friends/family. Thank you!
