  1. Looks like an interesting variation on 221-B Baker Street. 221-B is one of the great mystery investigation games of all time, so that is a compliment. I’ll definitely have to check this out.

    Games I own in this genre:

    1) Clue — No home’s game closet is complete without this classic of deduction. Make sure you play with more than two people. I also own the D&D version.

    2) Sherlock Holmes The Card Game — This is a wonderful game where players hunt down the various villains of Sherlock lore all in the hopes of being the detective who captures elusive criminal masterminds. The game can get bogged down on bad draws where the players keep taking trips to the countryside.

    3) Mystery at the Abbey — Days of Wonder’s wonderful addition to the genre.

    4) 221-B Baker St. — I own both the classic and the Time Machine version. Stick with the classic as the solutions to real world unsolved mysteries are often obvious to the students of unsolved mysteries. I like both, but when I played Time Machine in groups including my friend Jay the game was very short indeed.

    5) Inkognito — Good simple deduction card game.

    6) Clue Mysteries — I was pleasantly surprised by this little gem. It’s a 221-B for the younger set. It isn’t too challenging for adults, but is ideal for the pre-teens as an intro to more difficult games.

    I might own some more, but I’m far from my closet at the moment and I haven’t made a spreadsheet of my games.
