Pulp Detective is a 30-minute game for 1-2 players. Channel your inner detective, and solve the case within 24 hours!
With ingenuity and flair you may just have a chance to find the 4 clues you need to confront the filthy criminal behind this whole mess. Grab your gun and solve the case!
After its breakthrough success in 2018, Pulp Detective is back with a vengeance! New cases to solve, new detectives, and new cards for even more variability! Click HERE to visit the original campaign page.
And, as previously, we have licensed even more 1920s-50s pulp artwork for this second expansion...

Even before last year's campaign ended, Todd had already come up with several new and fresh ideas for expanding the game. It is now time for some of those ideas to become a reality in this second expansion. More control over the game, more variety in detectives and criminals, more choices, more, more, more!
Two new detectives and two new inspectors are joining the team:
- Brick Larson is a former boxer and rehabilitated second story man. He can reduce time by 3 hours to gain 1 permanent twist marker!
- Sarah Dayley has special abilities in the Storyline...
Captain Harrington and Olga Domino have been included as well as the two new inspectors.
The expansion comes with 2 new cases to solve each of which features nice twists and turns!
The Society of Corpses: Six all new dastardly criminals! The Chairwoman, Mr. Holiday, Ronnie The Chin, "Leering" Jack Callahan, The Obscurant and Lady Ace will trouble your nights during the many sessions of Pulp Detective yet to come...
Publishing a new expansion means that we have a great excuse to produce a new die, and Todd has obliged us by designing the Girl Friday die!
6 New Henchmen can be encountered during the game. Each one will give you a special ability!
6 Gun Molls will cross the paths of your detectives and inspectors, potentially giving you a permanent ability or clues.
But be careful to not fall in one of the 6 new traps in the expansion!

We are also taking advantage of the second expansion release to solve the minor issue of the mixed color cubes. Todd has designed something great with the yellow and black cubes, which were inside the base game boxes, and we will add the blue and red cubes to the expansion box, which were missing last year.

We'd love for you to try Pulp Detective before you back the campaign! The game has been implemented on Tabletopia, and you can play for free here:
Todd Sanders lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he works as a graphic designer, publisher and furniture maker. He has great renown as a solo board game designer.
Other games should come later this year... I have heard good things about Pulp Invasion, a second stand-alone game in the Pulp Universe with a sci-fi theme...
Like our past campaigns for games such as Pulp Detective and the Tramways Engineer's Workbook, we have respected the delivery time, and in some cases, boxes were even delivered earlier than expected (depending on how complex production of the game had been).
For the Pulp Detective campaign, thanks to very rigorous management of the files, and great contacts at the manufacturers, we managed to deliver the game 2 months early!
We expect the game to be ready in October, the embossed die is the most complex part of the components to produce, and samples of them are nearly finished.
Because you are helping me finance my project, I will help you finance your shipping: I will pay part of the cost, so you only have to pay $3 in shipping for the expansion and $10 for the complete story so far reward. It is the least I can do.
Thanks to Ludicreations for their help during the campaign.

Risques et défis
AVStudioGames Plus has already put a substantial amount of money into the initial illustration and graphic design.
We now need your help to traverse the final route: Producing the game. We have established many contacts in the game manufacturing industry since 2012, which ensures good quality for all the components.
The final files are not yet ready, but all we need is your support to finalize the project.
