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.
Two of us wrote the game's writer once about one case, and received a lovely letter back from him.
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)
You will not be dissapointed.
