Lead the undercover investigation against 5 criminal groups to gather enough evidence to convict them. However, if you investigate too aggressively the criminals will smell a rat and go dark!

This clever card game takes auctioning and reduces it to its purest, simplest form. Set out a line of evidence cards, one for each player. Players will simultaneously reveal a card, each collecting one evidence card based off the card they laid. The highest laid card collects the first evidence card, and so on down the line. Try to collect 3 pieces of evidence against a criminal activity to earn bonus points, but investigate too aggressively by collecting 4, and lose all evidence of that type that you’ve gathered.

Hot Lead is created by award-winning designer, Reiner Knizia, for 2-5 players ages 8 and up, playing in roughly 20 minutes. It is game 3 of 3 in Reiner Knizia’s Criminal Capers Collection—three standalone 20-minute card games in a shared universe of organized crime.
