You start by laying out 16 suspect cards around the board and one in the Clue holster. Each player takes turn to roll for Suspects or Clues. If you succeed in a Suspect roll you turn over one of the suspect cards, if you fail the Fox moves closer to escaping. If you succeed a Clues roll you take a Clue token, place it on the Decoder to reveal something specific about the thief.
The Decoder is a big part of the fun. It works by you placing a Clue token on top then sliding out the tab to see if the dot on the Clue token is green. If it is that item is on the suspect. In this way you build up a profile of the suspect and can discard those without the matching item.
The result is a game of deduction where you need to balance how many clues and how many suspects you uncover. At the end of the game there's a fun reveal when you (hopefully) unmask the thief.
