Amsterdam, present day. A crime has been committed, but the police investigation is going nowhere. An anonymous client has called your detective agency to investigate. However, your rivals are on the case as well, so there’s no time to waste.
Shadows – Amsterdam is a real-time simultaneous competition between detective agencies, using pictures that contain intel to communicate within your own team. Player roles are asymmetrical: each Intelligence Officer tries to guide their own team around the board, and the Detectives try to understand their Intelligence Officer’s clues in a fast-paced race to victory.
