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!

Deep thought versus no thought
June 27, 2005

By reading the reviews it's obvious that the people who hate it just don't know how to play it. That being said it certainly won't be everybody's cup of tea, involving very little luck and a great deal of careful thought. Stabbing around in the dark is only attempted if you have no idea what you're doing. The game involves trying to deduce Mister X's possible moves from the moves he's had and the moves remaining corresponding to his last known position on the board and then moving the detectives to try to intercept him or narrow down his avenues of escape.

Admittedly it's usually more fun being Mister X but played as a team game being a detective can be very rewarding. Usually doesn't take too long to play and in my experience Mister X has evaded capture fewer times than he is caught, lots of fun.

International Is the best version!

This game is awesome! Find Mr. X. Really. Try. When you can't catch him, don't get mad. You can play X next time. :) A fun game that needs a digital counterpart. I thought it was best just one on one. I'd take 3 - 5 detectives and try to find my friend. Fun, fun, fun. Make this digital for internet play and redefine the genre.
