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.
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.
The board layout and design is fantastic and makes for all of the fun. With the Black tickets giving Mr. X a chance to escape by river and the detectives needing to keep a close eye on their remaining taxi, bus and tube tickets, this game is fun. Even though this is largely a game of calculation based on where Mr. X has been and what tickets he plays, the theme and gameplay are fun. It's especially good with a group with all the detectives in play.
I love boardgames where the players interact with each other. When the players who are the detectives interact and work as a team this game works beautifully and is very challenging for whoever is Mr.X. It's easier to work as a team with 3 or 4 players. It's harder with 5 or 6 and sometimes you can feel left out if there are only one or two detectives directing the others. Teamwork is the key to enjoying this game.
