There’s been far too much screen time in this household over the last year of lockdowns so I’m always keen to look at ways to entertain my eleven-year-old son where there’s no technology involved.  Having fun with the Foul Play card game is a perfect example of just that.  The game is aimed at players aged eight years and over and can be played with two-five players.

The game comes with fifty-two playing cards and four instructions cards and can be played as either a Good Cop or Bad Cop scenario. There are different rules and tactics required depending on which version of Foul Play that you play.  So far, much to my surprise, my son has insisted that every game we play, we play as the Good Cop.

You step back in time to spend time having fun with the Foul Play card game as it’s set in Edwardian England.  The Lord of the Manor is dead, it’s murder! The aim of the game is to be the first player to discover who is the culprit by uncovering evidence and solving the murder.

When you first read through the instructions of how to play Foul Play it’s rather difficult to understand how you get to the point where you can possibly uncover the murderer.  It’s definitely the kind of game that really starts to make sense as you play it.

There are lots of swapping cards with other players involved, as you try to track down the three evidence cards which will help you to identify the dastardly villain.

So you need to be strategic, as well as using memory skills as the game progresses.  Having fun with the Foul Play card game is a little different from other murder mystery games we’ve played and it keeps you on your toes. It’s certainly kept us well entertained recently.  Now I just need to convince my son to try the Bad Cop version!

  1. Harry Bosch by Michel Connelly because I love his philosophy “Everybody matters or nobody matters.”

  2. I love Line of Duty, can’t wait for it to return this weekend. I love the characters, particularly Ted Hastings and is sayings

  3. I like Unforgotten because the detectives really seem to care about doing the right thing and it’s really gripping.

  4. So many to choose from, I do like the older detective series like Morse and Frost, but also like the newer ones, I’m watching the new Unforgotten series and am looking forward to Line of Duty, but I watch so many detective series that I get excited about them all!

  5. At the moment we are enjoying Unforgotten but looking forward to the Line of Duty returning too.

  6. My favourite detective series is Monk – it’s what I used to end up watching as a kid if I was home from school ill, and it still makes me feel comforted to this day.

  7. Helen Field’s “Perfect…” series of books featuring DI Luc Callanach. He himself is a very imperfect character, and that lends a generous touch of realism to the books.

  8. I really loved monk, I wish they could have done more but I guess I did well with 10 series and a number of books published

  9. Morse was always my favourite as he was such a convincing detective and the storylines were good

  10. My favourite detective series is Silent Witness as I found it really interesting how they gather clues from a dead body.

  11. I loved Broadchurch – I wish it had more series. Also love Line of Duty and excited to see it return last night.

  12. Philip Kerr’s Bernie Gunther series (Berlin Noir etc). A wonderfully flawed character trying to do right.

  13. Absolutely loved Dexter, so excited it is coming back! Before I found Dexter, I loved watch Monk.Commenting again as I forgot to add why I love Dexter – it is different to most other detective shows, with him solving crimes and wanting to kill those that have done wrong, something he has to lead his sister to the clues and killer, other times he takes things into his own hands and so many close calls, you never know when or if he gets caught!

  14. Absolutely loving Unforgotten at the moment but do like to watch the odd episode of Colombo.

  15. Foyle’s War. Michael Kitchen is incredibly cool and modern history is both interesting and relatable.

  16. I love so many Detective Shows – but one that I watched recently and thought was really good (and can’t believe they didn’t make more) was Zen, starring the gorgeous Rufus Sewell

  17. Miss Marple because it’s a classic and I remember watching the television series when I was younger

  18. I used to love Columbo. Such a great way of getting information out of people and making them drop their guards.

  19. A touch of frost i love watching the reruns on itv3 just easy viewing and Sir david jason plays the character so well

  20. Agatha Christie’s Poirot although like Morse and Miss Marple too. love the great story lines

  21. Waking the Dead because its plot’s so full of twists and turns. The Suspicions of Mr Whitcher and Father Brown are pretty good too
