Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective presents you with a mystery to solve - it's then up to you to trace the threads of evidence through the byways and mansions of nineteenth century London. Interview suspects, search the newspapers for clues, and link together the facts to reach a solution!
The Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures box set from Asmodee contains 10 thrilling cases! The West End district of London is the scene of 6 new crimes, and Scotland Yard is powerless. Meanwhile, women of dubious virtue have been found murdered in the Whitechapel district, and the authorities are on edge. Pursue the mysterious killer, dubbed Jack the Ripper by the newspapers, in 4 cases forming a single story.
These cases will challenge your deductive reasoning skills and ability to discern important details from generally available information. No dice, no luck: only your perception and intuition. This game truly shines when you have a fellow sleuth or 2 to bounce ideas off of.
Roll out the map, review the evidence, and decide your next move: Visit the scene of the crime? Interview the suspect? Consult the inspectors at Scotland Yard? The choice is yours!
