Product Description

Scotland Yard is searching for Mister X. Will his pursuers catch him in the London fog? How will Mister X try to escape? Will the detectives find him in time? If they work together, they have a chance. Mister X will try to escape by bus, underground, and taxi. One player is Mister X, the others are the detectives. Mr. X moves secretly, but leaves a clue on each turn. With clever teamwork, the detectives can surround and trap Mr. X in time. But if Mr. X can slip away, he escapes and wins the game!

Good for young kids, too
December 18, 2014

This is one of our family's favourite games. Even my 6-year-old son plays; he really likes wearing the hat. I matched the London layout to a bus, underground, and street map when I was laid up with a broken leg, so I can vouch for the general accuracy of the map. As another reviewer said, you can play with two. When I play with my son, he gets to see where Mister X is all of the time.

Also works as a two-player game

Fun game. My wife and I play frequently. You don't really need three players. For a two-player game, just have one player control Mister X and the other controls all the detectives. Good for kids and adults alike.

This game is a thrill a minute and the more people you have the better. We could play for hours. The opportunity for "MR. X" to escape using his mystery tickets, and the "police" having to strain their minds to remember where Mr. X has been and where he could be makes for an exciting game.
