Each round of a Basic game of Turbo Sleuth consists of 2 phases: Analysis, and Solution. During the Analysis phase, players will compete simultaneously to find the Suspect and the Weapon among 3 Clue cards placed in the center of the table and use their Answer cards to connect the Suspect and the Weapon that was used. After they connect a Suspect and Weapon, a player will grab one of the Score tokens. The Analysis phase ends when all Score tokens have been taken.

Next, the Solution phase occurs, and players will determine the solution to the case by using the Solution key to match the cards used during the round to the correct answer.
