Reviews & Comments:
BGG Rebekah B.:"I love games that teach thinking skills to kids, and this one is great for logical deduction. It has the feel of a themed version of Mastermind with fun artwork. Unlike Mastermind, though, the guesser (or detective) doesn't come up with the test combinations; he simply turns over a card with a given combination on it and the "eyewitness" tells him how many match the answer.
I usually play this with just my daughter (6yo), and a two-player game feels more like an activity than a game. It's a fun activity, though, and with virtually no set-up, it can be pulled out and played even when we only have a few minutes to spare. "
BGG Big Kat:"I brought this into my Sunday school class (1st and 2nd grade) and the kids liked it. They worked together to figure out who the suspects were. We usually do activities for 5 or 10 minutes before we start class and this worked great. Sometimes my son will want to do a quick activity with me before bedtime and will pull this out. He likes the crime solving thing as well as using logic to figure stuff out. "
BGG Tom Vasel :"Three of a Crime in a nutshell is a fun, entertaining way to teach young children logic. If you are working with little ones, then this will be a great way to teach them - and with kids, it won't be boring. Gaming groups can pass this one by, but families may want to seriously consider it as a way to build their children's deduction and thinking skills. See my review for more details... "
How To Play: Calling all detectives! A gang of thieves has just been nabbed, but only three members actually committed the crime. Using keen eyes, quick thinking and deduction, try to figure out who's part of the guilty trio. Was it Loose-Eye Lenny, Kid Cassidy and Pencil Top? Or was it Louie St. Louis, Jonny Cortex and No Neck Nick? The first to name the right three suspects is the master sleuth.
