Cyber Crime Unit: How it works.

Players are directed to the exclusive Cyber Crime Unit website where they will find a case brief and some clues to start off their online adventure. From there, players will have to work together to find digital clues and solve mind-bending puzzles.

One player will be designated the Detective, while the rest of the players will be Forensic Agents. Each role will gain access to different information pertaining to the case. Your goal is to help the Detective fill out their Detective Report with the correct inputs. Almost all of the puzzles will require direct communication between the two roles - no sitting back and letting one player do all the work!
