How I Made This

I printed everything but the weapon tokens on something that felt like about 80-pound glossy card stock.

The cards were run through a Cricut CNC machine using the card-cuts-4x4.svg file, to give them nice rounded edges.

The board pieces I cut by hand with a scrapbooking paper cutter.

The weapon tokens were sent through the Cricut. I used the Android version of their app, which doesn't allow print and cut, so I just ran it through twice: once printing both layers, and once cutting only the circles.

We colored the bands on the player and weapon cards using some colored pencils, and my daughter drew furniture in the rooms and on the room cards.

Why tiny cards?

Cheapass Games made a fun game called "Kill Doctor Lucky" which uses tiny cards.

Kill Doctor Lucky is, as of this writing, offered for free download from the Crab Fragment Labs game preserve. I actually made the 4x4 template for Kill Doctor Lucky. I thought it would be cute to have the detective game use the same size cards as the murder game.
