4th Grade Confidential is available for purchase!

My latest game, 4th Grade Confidential, is available for purchase on Drive Thru Cards for $7.99!  Go ahead and check it out.  Also, be sure to check out the comic book it's based on, Fourth Grade Confidential by Neal Simon.  That's available for purchase from Drive Thru Comics!

Danger lurks in the halls of Northfield Elementary.  The school yard is no place for the meek.  Only one man can protect the innocent children from bullies, cheaters, and thieves.  But unfortunately Principal Jones is usually too tied up with PTA meetings, in-service days, and keeping his office chair warm.  That leaves Adin Simon, private eye, gumshoe, and sleuth to clean up after the fact.  Fourth grade may not be safe, but with a bit of grit and determination he'll solve your case and bring your culprit to justice... Or get wedgied trying.

4th Grade Confidential is a microgame of deduction, bluffing, and cunning. The game is based on my friend Neal Simon's comic book project called Fourth Grade Confidential, starring his kids and their friends (including my kids). The premise is that a 4th grader named Adin is a private eye at his school, working to solve the great mysteries of elementary school, like who stole his sister's stuffed pink bunny.

In 4th Grade Confidential one player is the Sleuth while 2-4 other players are the Characters. Each round the Sleuth is trying to solve a different mystery. The Sleuth has six Sleuth Cards and the other 12 cards are dealt evenly to the Characters. The Sleuth has six turns to try to figure out which Character has the Target Item for that round by calling out various attributes and seeing who has items with matching attributes. Through careful deduction and use of actions the Sleuth and Characters all try to be the player to end up with the Target Item.

The game can be played in a single quick round, or in a longer game with each player taking the role of the Sleuth.
