Gumshoe is a detailed detective/mystery game set in the 1930’s. Players assume the roles of “hardboiled” detectives to solve a mystery. Though not strictly a Role-Playing Game, it has many elements of role-playing to it.

The game is quite detailed with an extensive list of components:

- Large Case & Clue book (pages are unnumbered, so the page count is uncertain)
- Map of San Francisco
- Map of the Bay Area
- Bay Counties Telephone Directory (46 pages)
- Classified Telephone Directory (28 pages)
- Fngerprint File
- Mug Shot Cards (27 mugshots & fingerprints)
- Autopsy Reports (14 double-sided sheets)
- Laboratory Reports (9 double-sided sheets)
- Fingerprinting Reports (6 small double-sided sheets)
- Newpapers (9 folded double-sided newspapers with dozens of stories)
- Time Pad
- Report Book
- Rules (4 pages)
"Ah, Blackadder. Started talking to yourself, I see."

"Yes . . . it's the only way I can be assured of intelligent conversation."
