Android by Fantasy Flight Games

In Android, players take the role of a troubled detective, willing to do almost anything - undercut another detective, plant evidence to create a murder case they can solve, even creating a conspiracy out of circumstance and paranoia - to cover up and deal with the personal demons that haunt them.


The Game Round

Android is played across 13 rounds, or Days, each consisting of Daytime and End of Day phases. The last 2 phases are the "Climax", and always come too soon. Players are guided by Hunches in planting evidence and creating conspiracies, while at the mercy of Plots and Events larger than they can control.
