Contraband Insider is a deduction board game for 3 to 5 players.
The police are stepping up enforcement efforts to confiscate illegal contraband goods within the city. Unfortunately, players take on the role of moles infiltrated into the police force. These corrupted cops are also known as “insiders” who manipulate various operations to prevent their partnered contraband goods from being confiscated by police raids.
Each round consists of a game setup and 3 gameplay phases:
1. In the Contraband Goods Phase, players are to hide 3 Contraband Cards faced-down among 8 Public Locations and 1 Home Base.
2. In the Police Raid Phase, players take turns to play 1 out of 3 actions.
3. In the Scoring Phase, all the cards in the unraided Public Location and Home Base will be opened and revealed. Players will earn the number of points for the round.
The game is played over 3 rounds, which each round will determine points that add up to the final score. At the end of the game, the player with the highest score wins the game.
