Unsolved is a semi-solo investigation game.
You play someone who is interested in investigating a mystery. Maybe you are the friend/family member of a victim, maybe you are a journalist or can’t leave it alone or the cop assigned to a cold case.
Either way you won’t rest until you get answers.
You get answers by asking your friends to play the main characters in the story for an interview. Interviews can be 20 mins or 2 hours, in person, online or over text – up to you and the interviewees to arrange. During the interviews you ask lots of questions, leading questions if you like, write down the answers and build a case to solve the mystery.
That is why this is a semi-solo game. You will generate most of the mystery, you will journal and log your findings, draw conclusions and decide what leads to pursue. You will take all that information and use it to interview suspects, witnesses, experts and similar. Ask people to play these characters, ask them leading question and use their answers to build and solve the mystery.
You will need a d6, a means of taking notes and an insatiable curiosity!
