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.
