Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective

Strap on your deerstalker, grab a magnifying glass, and get ready to tap into your inner Arthur Conan Doyle in this mystery game set in Victorian London. The game is unique in that there’s no board; rather, sleuths read clues, interview witnesses, and track suspects via a written casebook of vignettes.
