Finding a good sector to play is quite important. What’s good for you might not necessarily be good for everyone else. It all depends on you and your clubmates’ requirements and capabilities at that point.
Remember: The key is that you and your fellow Detectives enjoy it, and that you’re able to finish it. Below, you will find some tips that can help you make the right choice.
1. What reward will you get for completing the sector?
You can find the reward type and the amount as indicated in the image below. If your club is aiming for League domination, a sector with a League points reward might be desirable. However, the Diamond sector might be too good to let go!!

2. How many phases does this sector have?
If you play a sector with one phase, it can be finished quickly and with a relatively low number of Badges. However, you’ll only earn one clue, and it will yield less rewards compared to a two or three-phase sector.

3. The cost to play will rise
Every sector you search may increase the price per play for the next sector that you select.
More specifically, by the time you reach your seventh one-phase sector, the Badges required could rise from say, five Badges to ten Badges per play. On the other hand, if you complete just one three-phase sector, the price to play the second tile may only increase from five to six Badges. There’s no right or wrong option here, but your choices are still meaningful.
So, would you rather play six one-phase sectors, or would you rather play one three-phase sector?
4. The more Badges you use, the more valuable rewards you earn
Remember that the more Badges you’re required to use per play (or the tougher the sector is) the better your chances are of earning more valuable rewards.
For example, if your first sector required 50 Badges to finish and your seventh sector took 120 Badges to complete, you’ll definitely earn more rewards from the seventh sector.
If you have a choice between a one-phase sector and a three-phase sector, you’ll definitely earn more valuable rewards from the three-phase sector.
If the seventh sector you search is a three-phase sector, you’re going to have a windfall of rewards!
5. What’s your proximity to other players in your group?
If you go to a restaurant with your friends, you don’t want to sit at separate tables. Similarly, in Club Mysteries, if your searched area combines with the searched areas of other Detectives, all of you will have access to all of the bordering sectors, thus increasing your options and chances of finding sectors with better rewards.
