Taken back to the late 19th century in London, you and your friends are obsessed with the legendary detective known as Sherlock Holmes. Trying to follow his footsteps, your crew chase down clue after clue, lead after lead to solve the crimes of Jack the Ripper and the mysteries of the West End Adventures.With no set boundaries, you are given 10 cases (4-Jack the Ripper and 6-West End Adventure Cases) to solve. A London directory and prescribed text including cases you have to solve, scenarios, events, newspaper archives, clues and leads are presented to you. The aim of the Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective is to solve the case in a more efficient manner than Sherlock Holmes (you won't). You can play a co-operative game with your friends, a competitive game against your friends or by yourself (co-operative is recommended).
