The cat gave a witness testimony, in case you're wondering.

I've not played this game, but from the many reviews I've looked up on it, it looks like it would be a fun game.

It's a social deduction game. It requires a minimum of four players. One to play the forensic guy, two to play the cops, and one to play the dirty cop. Everyone has a bunch of cards laid out in front of them. The dirty cop chooses two, and only the forensic guy sees who the dirty cop is and what cards he chose. It's then up to the forensic guy to use a card sheet which has a bunch of single words on it (like "written" or "shot") to point the discussion into the right direction, so that the good cops can figure out who did it and with which two cards. If they fail, the dirty cop wins.
Naturally this brings up the question as to why the forensic guy can't just tell the cops outright. Social anxiety I suppose.
