WizKids Announces Detective Rummy

Crime. It's rampant across the city. 7 cases, in particular, have been giving the cops problems. It's time for the private detectives to come in and solve them. But who will get the clues first? Who will reap the rewards of closing the cases? That's up to you to decide in Detective Rummy, coming soon from WizKids.

From the announcement:

WizKids is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Detective Rummy, a rummy-style card game that breathes new life into Mike Fitzgerald’s classic Mystery Rummy series!

In this 2-4 player game, players take on the roles of Detectives vying to solve a series of 7 different cases and gain fame in an immersive noir setting! The story begins at the legendary Rummy Detective Agency, and each case takes you to various locations to solve a crime, including the diner with the best doughnuts in town, the cozy Quarter to 3 Bar, a ritzy fashion emporium, the circus, the most elite jazz nightclub in town, and more!

The cases in Detective Rummy can be played in two different ways: Campaign Mode and Case Mode. In Campaign Mode, you play all 7 cases in order. In Case Mode, you can play Cases 2 to 6 as standalone Detective Rummy games one at a time. The game also has a ton of replayability – the new Game Changer cards featured in each case are discovered in a different order (if at all) each time you play, so cases will never resolve the same way twice! You can play both the campaign mode or the individual cases as many times as you like!
