Both my Grandmother and Grandfather were police officers. Though I doubt they ever went on too many high-speed car chases, trying to track down drug smugglers through the middle of the city. However, you and I can do it, vicariously at least, in Code 3, a new 80s action-packed police board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Set in the action packed 80s, Code 3 introduces The Beat Partners System. Choose two unique police officers (hardened, salty, inept, drunk, overzealous, etc.), and combine them to create your unique deck of crime fighting cop action. Explore different combinations of Beat Partners by choosing from a massive cast of characters (and K9s!) to take down challenging crime bosses!
You’ll also select a Police Chief, enhancing the powers and flexibility of your Beat Partners. Remember, the crime bosses are challenging! You will need the Police Chief’s help to get out of sticky situations. Just don’t get on the Chief’s bad side, or you may end up in Internal Affairs.
In Code 3 there are many ways to lose, but only one way to win – making tough choices, going goal by goal through a branching story. What choices will you make? Do you play it by the book? Or do you step just outside the line to get the job done? Will you vouch for your teammate in the Internal Affairs interview when you know they're dirty? And will your choices come back to haunt you?
In Code 3 you enter an expansive world of story driven, cooperative, sandbox style, tabletop gaming with a near endless level of replayability! For 2-4 players!
The campaign's a little over 1.5x funded with 23 days left to go.
