Hostage Negotiator: Crime Wave is a standalone expansion to the single player game Hostage Negotiator. Each turn in the game represents a conversation between you and a hostage taker. You roll dice and play cards to increase conversation points, decrease the threat level, and release hostages.
Hostage Negotiator: Crime Wave has the same "hand-building" mechanism found in Hostage Negotiator that puts cards you buy in your hand for next turn, but it has new Conversation Cards, new Terror Cards, new Pivotal Events, and all new Abductors — all with new rules and new demands! It can be played out of the box but also expands the original Hostage Negotiator.
Hostage Negotiator: Crime Wave game box fits all released content for Hostage Negotiator to date with room for more.
