Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures


Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures is both a stand alone game and an expansion to the cooperative deduction game Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective for 1-8 investigators.

It features updated graphics with ten more cases to be solved in Sherlock Holmes’ Victorian-era London, England. A “London Directory”, map, and newspaper archives are included with the cases.

In Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective, you are presented with a mystery to solve, and it is then up to you to trace the threads of evidence through the byways and mansions of nineteenth century London. You will interview suspects, search the newspapers for clues, and put together the facts to reach a solution.

This is not a board game: No dice, no luck, but a challenge to your mental ability. The game has been thoroughly researched for Holmesian and Victorian accuracy so as to capture a feeling of that bygone era.

Included are six independent “West End Adventures” cases (redesigned and updated from the 1995 expansion), and a series of four new cases based on the Jack the Ripper murders.

Jack the Ripper Cases:
Mary Ann Nichols
Annie Chapman
Elizabeth Stride, Catherine Eddowes

West End Adventures:
The Strange Case of Dr. Goldfire
The Murder of Sherlock Holmes
A Case of Identity
The Death of a Transylvanian Count
A Royal Huggermugger at the Savage Club

1 review for Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures

  1. Dawn Quigley

    These games a great if you love solving mysteries! Going into the game I can’t stress enough that you won’t beat Sherlock! It’s important to go into these games with the mindset that you’re just competing against yourself and trying to solve as much of the case as you can. Sherlock knows how this world works much better than you will and he’ll make logical leaps that most people wouldn’t without that knowledge. However Sherlock only solves part of the game you can still gain your own intellectual superiority by solving more than he does, there are often more deaths or more culprits than Sherlock catches and it’s more fun to try find all these extra tidbits than worry about how many points you get compared to Sherlock! At the end of the day did you really solve anything if you only have half the information?
