    I do have a physical set of the cards and there is one thing to mention in regards to your point about investigating being about marking time. What the game does is narrow the scope of external suspects and locations from 5 each to 3 or 4 each – an for each you develop some of the fiction or motivation for them to be a suspect or place where Alice might turn up. The two penultimate cards (30 mins and 20 mins) then defines who is responsible for the disappearence and where Alice is, and gives the group time to re-incorporate their past suspicions about these things before revealing in the 10 minute card alices final fate- so I can see the logic to the structure. A variant in which PC cards could also be included in the final shuffle of suspects could be interesting, but there would have to be a negotiated buy in from those players who are OK being a potential murderer (though there is plenty of scope for Alice being alive, run away, in hiding or dead due to disadventure/accidental manslaughter rather than kidnap/murder)

      Oh thanks Steve! Mm, I wasn’t sure if I’d remembered that right.
