P.I. is a pure deduction game, with players competing in three consecutive mini-games in order to see who's got the best chops in terms of solving their cases. Each mini-game plays out the same way. To start, you receive in secret one suspect card (out of 12), one crime card (out of 10), and one location card (out of 14); this set of information represents the case that the player to your left must solve. The game board shows fourteen locations arranged so that each location touches a few others; each location has space for a suspect and crime tile. Shuffle the suspect tiles (12, plus two "no suspect") and the crime tiles (10, plus four "no crime"), then place one face up in each location. Each suspect, crime and location is included in a deck of evidence cards, and nine evidence cards are revealed. When you choose an evidence card, the player to your right places a disc on the matching tile if the card matches one of the case cards he holds, places a cube on the matching tile if this tile is adjacent to a tile matching one of the case cards he holds, or places nothing if you've made a wild-eyed guess and the tile isn't adjacent to anything. To attempt to solve the case, you place a black token on your guesses. If wrong, you're penalized two points and continue play next turn. If right, you receive 7, 5, 3 or 1 points depending on how many others have solved their cases in earlier rounds. The mini-game ends once everyone has solved their case or only one case remains unsolved. All used investigators are removed from play, then the board and cards are reset for the next mini-case. Each player has only five investigators total, so use them wisely! Whoever has the most points after three mini-cases wins.

It's a simple deduction puzzle, your trying to solve a crime of the person on your right, yoru not all trying to solve 1 case, it works a little like those logic puzzle you find in holiday book, you need to determine location, Person and crime, you are limited by chooseing what to investigate from a spread of card and when you pick one the player to your right says if its right, close by, or not even close,
and after several rounds like this from the board layout you can whittle down suspects and locations and crimes, , the 1st person to get his crime right score the most points, if you make a wrong prediction you lose points and have to try again, once everyone has correctly solved the 1st crime you reset the board and do it another 2 times, and the highest score is the winner, there a few more bits to it, but that's a brief overview,
I was never one for Cluedo, and I though this would be to much for me! so i was suitably surprised!

This isn't an easy game - it's definitely a step up from Clue. It uses an interesting game mechanism, so that everyone is trying to find out a different mystery (at the same time)
I suggest that you do what I did and make some laminated helper sheets that show all the board spaces. It's kind of difficult playing the game when the board is upside-down to where you are sitting, but a helper sheet will alleviate that problem. There are some on boardgamegeek that you can print out and laminate.
I hope that you enjoy it!!
