My sister and I loved to play this game in high school, roughly 25 years ago.... It needs at least 3 people to make it a real game. Its a tough mind puzzle... My daughters grew up playing this, and are now in college. Buying it for them now to share with their housemates.

We were introduced to this game by my sister maybe 8 years ago, when she gave us a set for Christmas. It's relatively easy game play, easy to understand and fun to play. You get 2 deck of cards, one with 36 cards (gem cards), each representing one of 4 colors (red, green, blue or yellow), one of 3 gem types (diamonds, pearls or opals) and 3 groupings (solitaires, pairs, or clusters), the other deck are the 54 clue cards (search deck) that tell you what kind of questions you will be asking. You also get a rule book and a pad of Investigation sheets, where you will write down you notes on the clues that you will gather. The more players you have, the longer the game will take to play. With 3 players, one game will take about 15-20 minutes. Play with 6 players and the game will take hours. Highly recommended by this family as a game. If you like playing the game clue, without having to worry about moving squares and such, this is the game for you. That being said, this product is not exactly the game advertised...

This game has been around since 1971, so there are multiple different releases. All the games play the same, and should afford the same fun, but the look and quality of the cards have changed through the different versions. I can only speak from my personal experience of 3 different versions. VERSION #1 is owned by my sister. It is the oldest of the 3 versions and the one we play with when we are invited to my sister's house for dinner. It has the simplest layout for the cards and we find it hard to tell the colors green and blue apart on the "Gem" cards in low to moderate lighting. We have a flashlight handy at the table for people to use to make sure of the color they are looking at. The instruction booklet is simple, but functional.

This game is fun to play once in a while, but it is not a game to play casually. It takes a lot of focus, and new players have some difficulty learning the concepts.
