London's famous police detectives are put to the test with this family-friendly board game. One player assumes the role of the mysterious fugitive Mister X®, who is on the run in London, using the city's vast transportation network to elude the detectives in hot pursuit. The goal of the game is for Mister X® to stay hidden until the very end, while the rest of the players, acting as detectives, work in concert to catch him.
Players assume the roles of Scotland Yard detectives or the elusive fugitive Mister X® .
The game board features London's Transportation network - taxis, buses and underground trains - that the detectives must travel to find Mister X®.
A Cooperative Strategy Game
Detective players have 22 moves in which to capture Mister X®, who is invisible throughout the game except for the few times he reveals his location. This family game is big on teamwork and promotes cooperation, strategic thinking and communication skills. Scotland Yard also reinforces goal-setting and enhances turn-taking, memory skills and persistance. The setting of the game provides an educational introduction to London and its key transportation modes and familiarizes players with the famed Scotland Yard detectives.
Hunting Mister X®
A family game that engages children and adults alike, Scotland Yard provides an opportunity for multiple generations to interact with one another and work together in a socially-positive environment that provides conversation starters to further engage players. This is a tactical game that connects players in a unique way and changes dramatically, depending on the role you play.
What's In The Box?
1 game board, 6 playing figures, 1 logbook, 20 cards, 125 tickets, 1 set of detailed instructions.
Let's Play Scotland Yard! Which player will have the roll of the elusive Mister X? One player will function as Mister X, with the other players being Scotland Yard detectives searching for him throughout Central London. The starting station cards are shuffled and everyone draws one to determine where they will start the game. Every move is either by taxi, underground, or bus. Mister X moves first and writes his move in his travel log, indicating what method of transportation he used but not where he moved. Then, each detective makes their move, cooperating with the other detectives in an effort to close in on Mister X. Mister X only reveals where he is at certain points in the game, and the chase continues until one of the detectives moves to the place where Mister X is. In this case, the team of detectives has won the game. But, if Mister X makes 24 moves without being caught, he himself wins!

I loved this game when I was a kid and wanted to share it with my son. Now he also enjoys it, and we can play as a family. Definitely worth the money!Published 14 days ago by Amazon Customer
This is a very fun and tough strategy game. It is a little intense in strategy and makes it harder for younger kids. I would recommend 14 and up. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Rich Oris

Really fun game to play with the kids. We've played in big groups and with only two (having one person run multiple detectives). Lots of fun for any age.Published 4 months ago by Mike
Need to have a timer or something, since the player trying to run from everyone can almost always win if they have enough time to think through all the possible routes.Published 5 months ago by LttlAmazoner
This is one of the only games my husband actually likes. I love paying boardgames but it's difficult to find one he enjoys too. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Brandy Silva-Bernier
