Great fun and will always be.

Nice the way you can turn the level of the
challenges up and down in different ways.

If you love the police theme, it is a
must buy

My No. 1 Cooperative game because it has the Dirty Cop and it plays faster than my other favorite, Battlestar Galactica.
The game mechanics are top notch on this one and fits the theme so well. Now I just need an expansion with some more emergency Cards - and character profiles!

This might beat out Freedom: The Underground Railroad for the most thematic cooperative game I've played. Police Precinct is OOZING with theme! You feel like a cop, which makes the gameplay tense and meaningful. I can't really think of any flaws right now, and for that matter, any reason why this shouldn't be a 10. I would speculate that "alpha-gamer syndrome" would not be as big of a problem in the game, because there is so much going on, and no clear "best" way to handle it. I don't see the game as a puzzle like Pandemic; rather, it's more like you are starring in a cop movie. Maybe the worst thing about this game is setup/takedown time? I'm not sure, and that's fairly petty to fault it for that. I have to mention that the production is phenomenal. I think you could swat (and kill) a bat with the rulebook. It's not an easy game, which is a plus. Several coop games have failed to make the cut in our household because they don't provide enough tension. Everything just works so well, and it doesn't get stagnant at all, so I'm sort of wondering what's up with all of the expansions. More plays will ascertain the need, if there is one, I'm sure. Nevertheless, a MUST HAVE coop!

Awesome game, love cop dramas, plays out just like one. Only issue - graphic design of board, components, cards, rulebook etc are not at a professional level. Needs to be visually revamped and the game would be a solid 10. I'm a thematic gamer and visuals DO impact the feel of the game. Still think this game is awesome despite visual shortcomings... But yeah, COULD be a ten...

Another example of a theme I have been begging for in games for the better part of a decade. This game tells a story like few others can. The most recent play of it I had myself and my two friends were each separately taken out of commission by a belligerence drunk at a bar. The third attempt we even had air support. While this drunk was kicking the snot out of us a guy with a bomb was holding up the bank. That I remember this well enough to share it here is the highest note of praise I can give any game.

Fantastic co-operative game! I really like how there's mild to severe panic the entire game as the players scramble to keep crime under control while investigating the murder. Great game, lots of fun. The Mad Men promo cards can make the game _really_ difficult.

There was a time when I said "No More Coops, I have too many", then they started making coops like this.

Police Precinct, in many ways, reminds me of Arkham Horror. Random events or challenges pop up to be dealt with, some with a built in timer imposing negative consequences unless addressed. In fact, the game makes you plan well, coordinate well, and be proactive at all times.

Tension is high throughout, players are always engaged, and certainly the theme rises above what seems like a boring old cop game.

I own the 2nd edition, whose production values are second to none. If you're a coop lover, definitely look into this game.

There were obvious cues from other games, most notable to me was Battlestar with the loyalty cards and the bluffing. But the game was genuinely fun to play. I may be biased, having degrees in Criminal Justice and a background related to police work, but this was a great game. I am looking forward to being able to play it again and may even buy a copy for myself!

Played it solo to learn the rules, had a good amount of fun. Played it 3 player, they learned really quick, and we all had a Blast. People compare it to Flash Point, it seems a bit closer to a light version of Arkham.

10-18-14: I only played it once (at the 2014 Dice Tower Convention) but it was probably the greatest time I've ever had playing a co-op. You really had to work together as a team, there was a lot of interaction even when it wasn't your turn, and I'm sure the "dirty cop" element would make it even better. Would definitely play this one again. If it wasn't so hard to find right now I'd probably already own it.

7-11-15: Strike that. The best actual game experience I ever had with a co-op was our second game of PP at BGG.Con 2014, which we played with The Chief, who completed our 11th hour comeback win by making the clinching arrest of the suspects.

Definitely one of the more intriguing co-ops of the year. Players have to balance between solving a murder, arresting thugs and responding to emergencies -- in a very thematic setting. If you were a fan of the Police Quest games, this is probably as close as its going to get.

The components and artwork were brilliant. The only niggle I had was that once we left the police station, we never made our way back. There are just too many emergencies every turn to be able to do it. It would have been nice to have a breather once in a while.

Cooperative game about being a police officer. You have to balance out your daily job of arresting street punks and handling emergencies with solving a high profile murder case. The game is very rich in theme and also includes an optional "dirty" cop variant. Really fun game, but beware that the rules are some of the most horribly written I have ever seen.

Attractive cooperative game; thematically very strong: you really feel yourself a police officer who tries to keep crime on the streets under control; solving the murder is a bit more abstract; plays smoothly; offers many possibilities in order to influence difficulty

Very entertaining co-op with a possible traitor 'Dirty Cop' element you can mix in for variety, I was a little reluctant to check this out because I found the artwork a little bland, but this 2nd edition is solid, the art is kind of cool in its own cheesy way and the mechanics are really fun and thematic, even if the game takes a pretty stereotypical view of the police. Hoping for an expansion somewhere down the line, with more Emergencies, gangs, characters, etc.

Nice looking coop game. Every aspect of the game is well suited to the theme. Game mechanics are simple. Lots of flexibility to adjust difficulty. The typos on the board and cards are annoying though. If anything, rating may improve with more plays - have not tried dirty cop yet either.

I was one of the lucky ones to pick up my Kickstarter copy at Atlanta Game Fest. I played the game and it was a blast: it seemed easy at first, but we ended up barely winning with 4 players, and no dirty cop. Think of it as Arkham Horror but simpler with a different theme, or Pandemic where the theme actually matches gameplay, etc.

Just really enjoying this the more I play it. Initially the graphic design put me off a little, but the slightly comical aspect of the design soon gives way to a really fun co-op. Has worked really well as a gateway game, as the theme is so immediate.

I like this game quite a bit, but the typos are a bit annoying, and the fact that they didn't know their west from their east is REALLY annoying.

If you can overlook that, though, the gameplay is great! You're really struggling to keep the city's crime in-check, while investigating the murder. Quite a thrilling game.

The game is okay. When I play, it's fun to draw the different events & see what kind of craziness can happen next. However, whenever I resolve an event or receive something I need for the murder crime, It doesn't excite me.

I don't feel as if I'm making progress, especially in regards to the event cards. I think to myself, "Well, I finished this event but another will probably come at the end of my turn & replace that one!"

To be fair, I have only played the solo version of this game, which includes myself & One extra character I also get to play. Perhaps with more players the game will be more fun & appealing to me, but as of right now, it's just okay.

You really feel like a team of police officer while playing this game. It is not an easy game and every time I play with new players we always lose the first one and let the crime rate go sky high!

The big down side of this game is the production quality. The fonts are hard to read and it's hard to see where things go where when you need to find it.
There are several typos too and tokens being single sided is extremely annoying.

But still a great game!

A cooperative game of deduction that involves a good amount of dice rolling, similar in some ways to Firefly. Players work together to handle random emergencies, but have an ultimate goal of solving a murder within a predetermined amount of rounds. A highly detailed rulebook may seem a bit overwhelming at first, but the game plays rather smooth after a round or two and actually feels kind of easy. The theme is very strong and the pieces, although mostly tiles, are very nice. The game has really good rules for solo play.
