What is Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: The Thames Murder and Other Cases about?
Would you like to walk through Victorian London with Sherlock Holmes in search of Professor Moriarty?
Search the docks for the giant Sumatran rat? Walking up Baker Street as the fog rolls in, and hearing Holmes shout, “Watson, Watson! The game is on!”?
This is it! You can enter the opium den beneath the Bar of Gold, but watch out, Colonel Sebastian Moran may be lurking around the corner. Enjoy the mystery and excitement of Holmes’ London in this challenging and informative game. Your deductive skills will be tested against your opponents and against Sherlock Holmes himself.
A mystery is presented to you, and it is up to you to trace the threads of evidence through the byways and mansions of nineteenth century London. To solve the crime, you’ll interview suspects, search newspaper articles, and assemble data. How did two lions in Hyde Park die? Where are the National Gallery paintings? Who murdered Oswald Mason? Here are a few cases that will test your deductive abilities and ingenuity. No dice, no luck, but a test of your mind. To capture the feel of a bygone era, Holmesian and Victorian accuracy have been thoroughly researched.
