The game board features London's Transportation network - taxis, buses and underground trains - that the detectives must travel to find Mister X®.
A game for would-be sleuths who love a good adventure, Scotland Yard has players assuming the role of Scotland Yard's famous detectives, who are pursuing the mysterious fugitive Mister X®, on the run in London. The detectives work cooperatively to catch Mister X®, utilizing London's network of taxis, buses and underground trains. The player in the role of Mister X® spends the game evading capture, occasionally making appearances and leaving behind his discarded transit tickets as clues to his whereabouts.
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.

It's hard to find, and I think the price is outrageous, but if you are used to paying this much for a board game that entertains for hours, this game is well worth it.
Here are some tips for when you play it: 1. Wear the/a hat! It covers your eyes.
2. You do need at least 3 detectives. Trust me, it is worth it for someone to play the extra detective.
3. I know the game says 3+ person game but I have played 1 vs. 1, which I think is the best way to play it. The detectives are all played by one person and Mr. X can't hear any of the strategy.
The game is also fun at a superficial level and can be played quickly (20-30 minutes is typical for our family) - we ordinarily play 3-4 times at a sitting. The rules are simple (we only referred to the instructions the first time we played) but subtle enough to be interesting. It works best with 4-6 players; you can play with fewer, but catching Mr. X becomes very difficult. In sum, I would say this is a novel and entertaining game with educational potential well beyond the standard American board game.
This game can be played by 2-6 players, and most of the time I've played with just one friend; one person taking the role of Mr. X and the other taking control of the 5 detectives. In many ways I prefer the game with just two players, but there is really no loss of fun with more--the flow of the game just becomes a little different.
There is a fair bit of strategy involved but it is fairly easy to get the hang of. It really differentiates itself from the typical "roll the dice and move" type of game where there is virtually no thought needed (I'm looking at you, "Sorry"). I would say it's a great game for younger players that want to develop their analytical thought muscles, but it's great fun for all ages. I'm 37 and would play a game right now if I still had my copy!
I would rate this as one of my five favorite board games of all time, and definitely recommend it!

One against many game, but one person on the "many" side ends up taking over and telling the others what moves to make. Might be better as a two-person game.Published 2 months ago by J. Murray
