This is a travel version of the great 2 player game 'Mr Jack'. Those familiar with the original will recognise similarities to it, but this is actually a different game. Essentially, there are 9 suspects and 3 detectives to find 'Mr Jack'. Each suspect is on a different tile, and the detectives travel clockwise round the tiles looking to see if Mr Jack is visible or not. When 1 character remains, s/he is guilty. Mr Jack wins either by collecting 6 hourglass tokens or surviving 8 rounds.
The box is small enough and durable enough to slip into any luggage or 'pocket'. The components are the same high quality thick card as the original. It plays fun and fast, a game lasts 10-15 minutes and does not take up much play space. This is not merely a scaled down version of the original..it uses different strategies and techniques, and you will not be buying the same game twice if you have this AND the original. I like it a lot!
