Product Description

Twenty "all-new, all-true" mysteries of the 20th century include: The JFK assassination in "The Camelot Conspiracy, Pt. I and II" Jimmy Hoffa's disappearance in "The Vanishing Teamster" Elvis's death in "The King's Early Exit" 221B Baker Street is the London address of the world's most celebrated fictional detective, Sherlock Holmes, and his dedicated companion, Dr. Watson. However, instead of staying in London, in this version players use H. G. Wells' Time Machine to travel to the future, attempting to solve infamous cases from the 20th Century. Each player assumes the role of Holmes and matches wits with the other players to determine who possesses the most skillful powers of deduction. The game includes 20 cases based on famous crimes and criminals of the 20th Century, including the Zodiac Killer, Sacco and Vanzetti, the Lindbergh Kidnapping, and "The Black Dahlia". 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. The board represents the various cities the crimes occurred in, with eighteen generic locations to find clues (Pharmacy, Hotel, Airport, Supermarket, Tavern, Harbor, FBI, etc.). Players must collect clues from different locations, noting them down on their checklists as they attempt to find the answers to the questions listed on the case card. Movement is via die roll. Naturally, the crime scene will often contain vital clues, and a prudent detective always checks with the neighbors. Still, you can learn something important almost anywhere in town. The first player to figure out the correct answers to a particular mystery or crime, return to the Time Machine and announce the solution, is the winner.

By Helm on November 4, 2009
My dad bought this game when my sister and I were finishing up middle school. I absolutely loved it. The premise is that Sherlock Holmes traveled through time to solve famous unsolved crimes. Each time you play you focus on a separate famous crime. If recall correctly it includes Sacco & Vanzetti, DB Cooper, the zodiac killer, the Black Dahlia, the Lindbergh baby kidnapping and Marilyn's much debated death among others. As you play the game you uncover clues to help you solve the crimes. The crimes are described pretty historically, which makes for a fun history lesson, though some of the made up solutions are a bit ridiculous.

Because of the nature of the game and the patience it requires this game is not suitable for kids under 12, and some may think that is too young. The game also has a built in number of plays since it only comes with so many crimes to solve. However each game played is a commitment so it tends to be something you just play when you're up for the commitment. For the record it is less of a commitment than Risk or Monopoly, but we didn't run out of crimes to solve before I went off to college.

I fondly remember playing this game as a child, as part of our weekly family game night. Recently I decided to find a buy a new copy, having misplaced our old one.

This game takes you to some of the greatest unsolved crimes; The Black Dahlia Murder, The Zodiac Killer, and The JFK Assassination among others. Designed for 2 to 6 players (or more if playing in teams); and probably isn't meant for young children (though it's really a matter of choice), with its mildly grisly case descriptions.

The game comes with a standard 20 cases, which makes it hard to play repeatedly, unless you put enough time in between replaying. The rule book states that the average 4 player game will take about 1 and a 1/2 hours, but that really depends on the players themselves.

All in all it's a great product, and I love it just as much now at 21, as I did when I was 6 and played it originally.
