Nice PI puzzle that happened in a game.

As yellow, which card should you pick from the top row to solve the case?

Cool puzzle. I believe I have the solution (select text):
Spoiler wrote:3 combinations are still possible:

1. Pop - Little Italy - Bank Job
2. Doc - Little Italy - Mob Killing
3. Pop - Central Station - Smuggling

Since you only need the crime to solve, Bank Job allows you to deduce everything:

1. If Bank Job is correct: solution 1
2. If adjacent (meaning Mob Killing): solution 2
3. If unrelated (meaning Smuggling): solution 3

In real-time I probably wouldn't have figured this out fast enough, so I think my card would have been Rusty to annoy blue. :)

Red has already solved his case though, so it's a tie at best. :P

No single clue card would guarantee a solved case.

You must be missing something, because I did in the actual game.

KongKing's logic and mine were identical.

I overlooked the Forest Park clue card.

Really?
This is the yellow player's turn ("You" is in yellow color). However, I see the clue cards of player Grammiej, the blue player. How is that possible?

What are the clue cards for the yellow player?

It was a 4-player game. I was playing yellow. The evidence cards I collected were Forrest Park & Murder (as shown)
The clue cards for the other players are not needed to solve the puzzle.

grammiej cards are the solved case cards that you always see for one opponent.
