Time to call in some favors...

"That's a swift iron..."

... a noir phrase meaning: that's a fast car

We've already blown through not one, but TWO stretch goals! Up first, the Favor cards! These are a Kickstarter exclusive* and will NOT be included in the retail version of the game. 

Each detective is dealt one favor card at the beginning of the game that they can "call in" to get a leg up on their fellow gumshoes. Each is a once-per-game ability that will allow you to grab some extra scratch at the right time, speed around the board, or even gain extra leverage on the Chisel. 

Second we have a tutorial script that will help you immediately jump into the game. This is a thematic booklet that walks you through your very first case - Blood on the Pier - without even needing to read the rulebook. The script will teach both the Chisel player and the detectives the key game mechanics and get you playing as quickly as possible.

Next up is our $70k stretch goal, individual tuckboxes for every case! Rather than sorting all the cases into plastic baggies, we'll have custom tuckboxes designed to fit all the cards and standees that come with each case. 

Thank you all and we'll see you on the streets of L.A.!

      Hurray for the tutorial script stretch goal. My wife especially will like this, as she is a "hands on" learner.

      We like to accommodate "sleevers" whenever possible and will endeavor to do our best to do so for Detective, but ultimately the final decision will have to be made after working with the manufacturer on the internal packaging and production planning.

      In summary, unless some currently unknown factor prevents us from doing so, yes.

      Will the tuckboxes hold sleeved cards?
