The scene is set in Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: The Thames Murders & Other Cases. It is the close of the nineteenth century. As pea soup fogs blanket London, mysterious figures meet in dark alleys, disreputable restaurants, and opium dens. Robberies, murders, forgeries, arson—every crime imaginable can be found in Victorian London, and though few have the skill to follow these invisible threads, they all trace inexorably back to one man: Professor James Moriarty, the Napoleon of crime. Yet Scotland Yard and the people of London are not helpless in this master criminal’s clutches. The people have their champion, the world’s only consulting detective: Sherlock Holmes.
Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective is a cooperative game of observation, logic, and the science of deduction for one to eight players. You and your fellow players take on the roles of members of the Baker Street Irregulars, Holmes’s cadre of young agents, whom he employs to gather information in his cases. Armed with the facts of the case, the London Directory, a map of Victorian London, the daily issue of The Times, and your own wits, you must unravel ten devilishly complex cases, each with a unique casebook. If your mind is sharp and your logic unflawed, you may even outshine the great detective himself!
Ten fully revised cases for the Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective line from Space Cowboys will soon be available with the newest standalone box, The Thames Murders and Other Cases. Like the previously released Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures, The Thames Murders and Other Cases offers ten thrilling cases, each one drawing you into the mystery surrounding a deadly crime in the world of Sherlock Holmes. Whether you’re playing alone or with up to eight players, you’ll need everyone’s wits to solve the case.
Important note: The ten cases in The Thames Murders and Other Cases are the same ten cases released in the Ystari version of the game Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective, now fully revised and retranslated. The solutions and contents of some cases have changed.
