Deception: Murder in Hong Kong is a game of deduction and deception for 4-12 players that plays in about 20 minutes.
In the game, players take on the roles of investigators attempting to solve a murder case – but there's a twist. The killer is one of the investigators! Each player's role and team are randomly assigned at the start of play and include the unique roles of Forensic Scientist, Witness, Investigator, Murderer, and Accomplice. While the Investigators attempt to deduce the truth, the murderer's team must deceive and mislead. This is a battle of wits!
The Forensic Scientist has the solution but can express the clues only using special scene tiles while the investigators (and the murderer) attempt to interpret the evidence. In order to succeed, the investigators must not only deduce the truth from the clues of the Forensic Scientist, they must also see through the misdirection being injected into the equation by the Murderer and Accomplice!
Find out who among you can cut through deception to find the truth and who is capable of getting away with murder!

This game just rocks. It's like a combination between Werewolf (or Mafia) and Codenames, even with a little touch of Mysterium. This game is a great social deduction base game, cause it does something that other games doesn't: it's fun from start to end. Also, the moderator here is inside of the game acting as a "ghost", giving clues without talking. This game has sparked the best discussion in my groups and I highly recommend it to everyone that wants a nice, solid and wholesome social deduction game. There's a reason it's highly ranked everywhere: it deserves it.
A nice deduction game that takes most if not all of the unruly shouting out of the mix - I've not yet played a game where people get heated. The quality of the components is fantastic, as is the box insert. I'm very pleased with that (although maybe the wells for the tiles could have been just a few millimeters deeper). I love that it can play between 4 and 12 - what a great range. I haven't played with the bigger numbers yet. I imagine that there would be a LOT of cards on the table, making it very difficult to keep everything in memory, and as a result people will probably focus in on two or three suspects quite quickly just to make things a bit more manageable. But I suppose to counter that, there will be a lot of people guessing, so you can quickly narrow it down and rule people out too. Once you've taken a guess, you're not necessarily out of the game - you can still discuss and contribute, you just can't make a guess. I've played with the accomplice and witness - I'm not sure if I like that. It's almost as though the whole game that has just been played was pointless, and now it all comes down to whether the murderer and accomplice can guess where the witness card is. Still, a good, quick game
