Early Impressions

A cleverly designed cooperative sleuthing game. Reveal clues to figure out who stole the pie. The very cool decoder device helps uncover which articles of clothing the thief is and is not wearing. And we love the memory twist in this game: There are only two suspects revealed at the start of the game, so players need to remember which articles of clothing the thief is and is not wearing as future suspects are revealed. There are a total of sixteen suspects, each wearing three of the twelve articles of clothing. And each piece of clothing is worn by four of the suspects - plenty of sleuthing depth to appeal to a fairly wide age range.

Tester Reviews

KIDS:

I liked it because you had to guess who stole the pie. It was really fun because we each had to take turns and the fox kept moving to the hole and we had to hurry to guess who took the pie so that the fox didn't reach the hole. I like the way the suspects all looked different but sort of the same. It was fun to work together as a family to beat the fox. My sister (5) was cheating but it didn't matter because we were on the same team so no one was upset. Tiago (M8)

I liked it when I found clues to help me guess who the sneaky was. Siobhan (F5)

I liked to play detective and find the thief.  I also liked trying to figure out who the thief was. It was fun to pull out the card from the reader at the end to see if we got the right thief. I've never been a detective before - I'm going to have a spy birthday party now based on this game. I needed my parents help to play it but very fun. Mia (F5)

It is fun to try to win against the fox. I like that we work together, but it took my parents a little while to figure out how to play. Rebecca (F8)

ADULTS:

My kids M8 and F5 really enjoyed playing the game. It was slow to get started but once we all understood the concepts it was easy and fun. It was the first board game we played as family that didn't end in tears when someone lost! This was a nice change to work together as a family and try and beat the fox by finding out who took the pie. My son age 8 really enjoyed playing and wants to play with friends. My daughter age 5 had difficulties with not landing on the paw to get the clue. My daughter wasn't as interested as my son in the game and we would catch her cheating. I think this has to do with personality more than age. She is as sneaky as a fox! We really liked the clue finder. At first we were confused and thought the red dots meant the fox wasn't wearing it but it is actually the green. I think it would make more sense the other way around. The kids really enjoyed the individual images of the foxes and all their unique details. It's a well made toy with strong pieces and cards. The box and holders keep everything in place. I loved that this game makes us work together as a team to complete a challenge. It was really nice to play a game where there isn't one winner but we all work together to win as a team. A well priced game that seems industry standard. The illustrations are really beautiful with unique drawings of the suspect foxes, game board and even the box. The unique factor would be the co-operative element. We haven't played one as a family before and it was a really fun engaging experience. We were testing a previously tested game and it seemed almost brand new. We passed the game on to another game in the same shape it was given to us. All the pieces and the box seem well constructed.

Play was excellent right through to the end  - good pace to game - kept us well engaged. Loved laying out the cards and putting the secret card in the mystery holder. Well suited to my daughter's age (5), but needs adult assistance to facilitate setup and help keep flow of game in proper order. Craig Bobbie

Well, our first game took a while to get started; we will try again! It is a cute game with a good theme. It just takes a bit of time to get used to a new game with new rules. I love that this is a game that makes us work as a team. The instructions are pretty clear; I am sure with time this game would become very second nature. Not too difficult for 8 year olds with parents. I love the team work aspect; no competition! This is actually a bit hard to get used to! Ruth Burany
