Cryptid (n): a creature whose existence is disputed or unsubstantiated.

The word is passing throughout the Royal Society of Cryptozoologists - a new creature is close to being discovered. The first to discover the beast in its habitat will get the glory of naming it! Each among you holds a clue, but it is only through clever deduction that you can be the one to discover the Cryptid! Cryptid is a deduction game in which you must try to discover information about other people's clues, while throwing them off the scent of your own. In Cryptid, two to five players will be trying to deduce the location of a mysterious creature. Each player will have a clue, and when all these clues are combined they will lead to a unique location on the game board.

During each turn players will be trying to puzzle together the location by discovering information about the other player's clues, while trying to hide information about their own. The game includes a modular board, five clue books, and a deck of setup cards with a wide variety of possible setups and difficulty levels.

An enjoyable game - when it works. But it's so easy for a player to get a clue wrong and the instant a single mistake it made the whole game is ruined.

Played three games where everyone just guessed and ended the game on the first or second round. One player got a grand total of one turn over all three games. Seems pretty fragile, and not sure the game is worth mussing with more.
