221B Baker Street
« on: May 13, 2020, 07:48:30 PM »
My wife and I played this cooperatively tonight.  The premise is you are trying to solve a case.  You have to roll a dice to move around to various London locations to find clues.  Some of the clues are irrelevant or misleading.  You usually have to determine the murderer, motive, and method.

We found nothing on the method until clue 10 (out of a possible 14).  We had the motive & murderer much earlier.

This was a light, entertaining mystery game.  First time we played and we finished in about 30 minutes (including the minimal setup).

There are 200 cases - so this one has some replay value until you either run out of cases or you forget the details.

Very entertaining, light, and you could probably play this with a bright 10 year old.

That rules most of us out
