Enter the gaslit world of Sherlock Holmes in Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective! Now, you`ll face ten entirely new cases in Jack and the West End Adventures! Six of these cases are standalone adventures, while four others form a linked campaign that challenges you to stop the murders of the notorious Jack the Ripper! With a new map of London and Whitechapel district, new newspapers for every case, and ten new casebooks, it`s time to put your mind to the test!
Sherlock can be played with one to 8 players, and actually works quite well for two players. Think grown up version of the old two minute mysteries. This is a mind game more then a board game, with each player listening carefully to the story of each mystery as it is unraveled. If you like really putting your brain to the test, the challenge of these games is great.
Suggestions for improving the experience is making copies of the newspaper for everyone to be able to pour through, and making sure there are plenty of sharpened pencils and paper around for people to make notes. Also, there are two schools of thought about reading the adventures. One is taking turns paragraph to paragraph, but the other is picking someone who likes to do the reading and let them get into the fun of it. That leaves the rest of the players to be able to listen well and take notes of things that strike them as odd or potentially useful.
