Manufacturer's Description

221B Baker Street is the London address of the world's most celebrated fictional detective, Sherlock Holmes, and his dedicated companion, Dr. Watson. In this detective game you start at 221B and travel through the streets and alleys of London picking up clues and attempting to solve the most intriguing cases Holmes and Watson have ever faced.

Each player assumes the role of Holmes and matches wits with the other players to determine who possesses the most skilful powers of deduction. Join Sherlock Holmes to solve seventy five intriguing cases and each case is represented by a card that features a crime told in story form, a selection of probable suspects and a list of locations involved in that crime.

Clues are hidden throughout London, one in each of fourteen locations. Players must collect clues from each location, noting them down on their checklists as they attempt to find the answers to the questions listed on the case card.

Naturally, the crime scene will often contain vital clues, and a prudent detective always checks with the neighbours. Still, you can learn something vital almost anywhere in town. The first player to figure out the correct answers to a particular mystery or crime, return to 221B and announce the solution, is the winner.

For 2-6 players age 10+. Game takes 60-90 minutes to play.

75 case cards, Rules/Clues/Solutions booklet, Solution checklist pad, 1 die, game board, 6 playing pieces, 6 Scotland Yard cards, 6 Skeleton Key cards

By A Customer on 11 July 2005
For ages, I've been looking for a decent boardgame that you can play with just two people (so many need three players or teams) - and finally I've found it! 221B is an excellent, thought-provoking game, ideal for anyone who enjoys games such as Cluedo.
221b Baker street is a very simple game to understand, with very few rules, so you can start playing very quickly instead of having to read your way through an instruction booklet the size of your local telephone directory. The game comes with 40 different cases, and it's your job, as Sherlock, to solve them.
Each case is detailed on a card, and tells the story of a crime, detailing the probable suspects and a list of important locations. Clues are hidden at each of fourteen locations on the board. Players must collect these clues and deduce their answers from these, in order to solve the crime.
Some of the clues are very easy, while others take a little more thought and deduction, meaning it's probably not suitable for young children to play. The box recommends it being suitable for ages 10+. An average game with four players lasts around 1hour20 minutes.
As there are only forty cases, there will be a point when there are no more crimes left to solve, however, I understand that extra 'booster boxes' are available.
Highly recommended!

We love this game, I brought it for Christmas but we didn't get around to playing it. However we have now played it on a poor tv night and it was well worth it. So much fun, it can seem a little complicated at first but once you get into it your hooked. It is more individual than most board games but has a certain element of surprise which I haven't had in a board game before. Cluedo or Scotland yard meets a murder mystery night. Worth turning the Telly off and playing!!

I absolutely love this game, the strength of the game lies in the storytelling aspects. As a kid (around 10+) my friends and I would play this, as would visiting families. It's great for rainy days and for people who love solving or reading mysteries. It can be played several times over, as long as you give enough of a break between returning to play (thus forgetting the case details). When I played it at times I'd play it as a team, when there were only two players, each person gathering clues, as it can be quiet difficult to solve some clues particularly if you're young, although a lot of the fun from the game comes from racing each other to be the first to answer. It's like cluedo, only better! It has more details, actual stories, and a real theme. It's a great mystery game and proved very popular with my friends and family. I'm not really into board games, but this gives you a little story every time and is immersive in gameplay.
Two of us wrote the game's writer once about one case, and received a lovely letter back from him.

What an excellent game! Not really child friendly as is aimed at adults (Well maybe really smart kids as-well?)
It's like Cludo in the fact that you have to solve a mystery, apart from that this game is on another level. Read aloud the scenario and what you have been hired to do (a Murder or maybe stolen jewels etc...) Roll the dice to move your character to different locations on the board to get clues. Mark them off and keep thinking about the opening scenario as that has hidden clues in there too. You could have to say (for example) work out Why the victim was murdered, how they were murdered and by whom.
Or on another case, Who stole the Jewels, how they broke in and escaped and where they are now. Much more in-depth than Cludo!

Would recommend. (The more players the better)

A great game with a larger variety per play than in any other board game available. Cludeo is completley trumped in every way with this clever but easy to learn mystery board game.
You will not be dissapointed.

bought this for a weekend away to celebrate a family birthday. had hours of fun playing this with 4 adults and two teenagers. its similar to the cluedo type of game but there is a lot to it and really makes you think. Each game is different so there are years of life left in this game. if you like mystery, intrigue and clue based games this is definitely a game to consider. only downside was that there were no pencils in the box so if you are going away remember to pack some pens/pencils.

Let's not beat about the bush here; this is basically a cleverly reskinned version of Cluedo; but I loathe Cluedo, and i _love_ this. Somehow this simple game manages to suck you in and make you really care; the mysteries somehow grab you; the race around the board somehow feels so much more gripping that it really is. My family are reasonably seasoned gamers, we've played most of the modern classics, and yet this silly little game which has none of the weight or sophistication of its rivals has quickly become one of our very favourites. (Warning! Use 2 dice, instead of one. Seriously. Use 2 dice.)

Love this, had the original version years ago and was very pleased when I saw you could still buy it. Have had many a good night over Christmas solving the mysteries, which it turns out I am very good at! You get 75 of them so will take a long time to do them all. More for the adult player due to the clues given, some hard to work out.
