Simply Suspects is a fairly light game that doesn't take that long to play. I can see younger kids enjoying the theme behind it, though whether or not they'd be able to keep the suspects straight in their heads is another matter. For example, in order to guess the identity of someone (assuming that they haven't eliminated themselves already), you have to first eliminate who they are not. Sometimes, it ends up being a memory game as to who you tried to eliminate and what names you attempted to associate with what player. I found it easier just to keep two or more pegs on a random name and do my best to keep them there until I was sure that all players landed on the Grand Jury space. After a while, players simply eliminate themselves. I've also had more luck watching the kids place evidence on characters...the ones they planted evidence on the most were the ones I eliminated from my "watch" list. It's definitely more fun when you play with more people, as there are less "fake" names on the board that aren't in use by anyone.
The components themselves are fine, no complaints in their quality or durability. The board is very simple and the rules are easy to understand, making this a pick up and play kind of game. I can see this game appealing to casual gamers who enjoy games like Clue, though its simplistic nature makes it viable for players of all ages. With that said, Simply Suspects plays a lot like Spy Alley. Though, given the choice, I'd rather play Spy Alley. That's not to say that Simply Suspects isn't fun to play, but in my opinion, Spy Alley offers a bit more. Still, if you are looking for a casual game for family game night that requires a little bit of thought, it can't hurt to take a look.

My daughter liked this game. It is a good game if you want to have a challenging game for your child. She did like Spy Alley much better. I would recommend Spy Alley first.Published on April 21, 2009 by L. Milo
