The Dick Detectives

After a rough day of business Dick went out for a night on the town with his Business Partner, Buddy. After a wild and crazy evening, Dick awoke to find he had passed out in the Gaslamp Quarter with no memory of the previous night – and the police standing over him ready to take him into custody! Dick soon finds out that Buddy is dead, and Dick is the prime suspect in his murder…

Dick swears he is innocent, so he has hired you and your team of Private Dick’s to prove he is not guilty of this crime. Detective, we are counting on you to solve this case! Put together your best team and lets spring Dick from lockup!

The Private Dick Agency (PDA)

Your team of detectives have been hired by the Private Dick Agency to come assist with this case. So put together your most fun and brightest group of detective friends to come join you on this adventure. Your team should consist of up to six detectives. If you don’t have a team, don’t worry; we will pair you with some other Private Dicks and get your Agency up and running.

Teams are encouraged to come up with a fun and crazy Detective Agency name. Also, you may want to establish a unique company uniform, so we can differentiate you from the other Agencies out there.
