Great game... entertaining and highly interactive

This is one of the greatest board games I've ever played. Not only is it fun and exciting, but the unique cases make it worth playing again and again. This is a timeless game that, if you can find it, is well worth any price. The game is afoot!

Almost the ultimate detective game.

Had to review this one. Picked up a copy in England in 2003. Widely considered a sleeper in our collection. EVERYONE who has played this game with us, loves it.

Similar to Clue in that you have to travel from room to room... but to find clues, you have to solve riddles once you get there... and then you still have to put it all together to get back to 221B Baker St. to win.

The only problem is that once you have completed the cases that come with the game (20-40 depending if you have a U.S. version or U.K. version) then it is pretty much in effect, all over.

You have to dig to find expansion cases to buy... but it can be done. (20 expansion cases in a set...)

Overall, a great game if you can find it.

This is a great game

I am a detecive my self and i dont usually play board games but i must say this is the best game i have ever played. the cases are really well thought of and certainly the clues and places where great. There is one thing that could have made the game a bit more enjoyable and that is if the board and the places where a bit more colourful.
