I am a Clue fanatic... and this game is just as good or better!! Fun, individual mysteries for you to solve by visiting places on the game board and using your common sense. My boyfriend hates these types of games because he's not very good at them.... but even HE enjoyed this game and stood a chance at winning. Great game even for just 2 people.

My 8 year old and I love this game. We play cooperatively which makes for a very pleasant, quick game, filled with natural learning for both of us! It is often silly, for example it will give a "sounds like" clue, rather than real mystery solving, but we rate it very highly and play a lot.

I remember playing 221 Baker St. on my Dad's PC in the '80's and loving it! It was great to find a board game version of one of my childhood favorites. The game plays very similarly to Clue-BUT-it is more difficult. The clues require more work to decipher and the mysteries are more challenging. The game comes with a set number of cases to solve-so once you get through all of them you know all the case endings. You have the option to order another book with more mysteries if you do manage to crack all of the cases in the first book:) I think the first book will last me quite awhile, because now that I have a family of my own it's tougher to find other adults and time to sit down for a board game...most of my game time now is spent playing Candy Land and Memory;)

If you loved playing the classic game of Clue when you were a kid, then you'll love this challenging version of 221B Baker Street. You are Sherlock Holmes and you are in a race with the other players to gather information to solve the mysteries presented. I'm not a reader of mystery novels, but I do enjoy this game. My husband and I played it with friends when we first got married years ago, and now that our kids are older we can enjoy some of our time together with this game. Have fun!

20 years ago, my house guests and I would stay up all night playing this game. It's the only game I've had that has worn out. I was thrilled to find it's still available and bought 3. It's a great family board game and is just as stimulating as any video game.

I grew up playing this game with my family in England. Some of my fondest memories are sitting around the table battling my brothers and parents in a game of whits and deduction.

A lot of the other reviews compare the game to Clue, there really is no compasison this is a far superior game.

I was a little dissapointed in the quality of the game pieces and the detailing in the playing board, the same game in England seems to be of a much higher qaulity and detail.

That being said however, for $15 I would buy this game again and again. It is hours of fun and is a fanastic way to help young children and adults develop a keen sense of deductive reasoning.

I remember playing this game when I was 7 years old and loving it. I would recomend it to any parent who wants to help their child grow up to be a smart and reasonable adult.

This is a nifty game, definitely more for older kids and adults. My 10 yr old got a bit bored. But I like going around and picking up clues in the various buildings, being the first to figure out the mystery. It's like an old choose your own adventure book. :)

Having played the brilliant and obscenely more superior "Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective," I sought other games to further test my skills of deduction against the great sleuth, and this game appeared repeatedly on every recommendation list, so I purchased it. After 2 sessions, I realized this game was fundamentally weak in two areas critical to any Sherlock Holmes games: the clues and the manner by which these clues are obtained.

The clues themselves are laughably juvenile. Whereas in the other game (Consulting Detective), the clues you obtain are conclusions you've drawn from scenes and the testimony from people of interest, here the game virtually provides the answers to cases for you in the most literal terms possible. For example, you'll have find a clue that states (and I'm not joking) "The killer's name rhymes with the word blue." Wow. Now, forget the fact that you're back in middle school all over again, let's talk about how this "clue" came to being in the first place. Who is furnishing it? How did it end up on an area of the board that is totally separated from the case at hand? Now, imagine yourself an actual investigator - I mean a real life COP - and you arrived at a crime scene, looked around, and you discovered a note next to a dead body that said, "THE KILLER'S LAST NAME SOUNDS LIKE A CERTAIN DAY OF THE WEEK."

The second half of the problems with this game is the way you get these clues. Essentially, it all boils down to luck. You roll the die, move your piece, and if by chance you happen to go to the correct locations on the board before the other player, you'll win the game.
