It’s murder most foul! Mostly because the Thames river’s not exactly the cleanest place in Victorian England. Ew. But along with murder, there’s plenty of other crimes happening in the streets of London to keep a detective busy. That’s where having some extra eyes behind magnifying glasses comes in handy. And that’s what you’ll be doing in Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective. The Thames Murders and Other Cases expansion is coming out soon, and Asmodee has posted up a little preview of the first case out of the box.
From the post:
The dingy streets of Victorian London are a place where crime could thrive—were it not for the unyielding efforts of the world’s only consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes. With the help of the intrepid Dr. Watson and the Baker Street Irregulars, Sherlock Holmes penetrates to the heart of even the most sordid and devilish crimes, discerning the truth and handing the guilty over to the justice of Scotland Yard.
In Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective, a cooperative game of solving crimes with the science of deduction, you and your friends can pit your minds against Sherlock Holmes and discover if you, too, can contend with the greatest criminal masterminds of the age. Ten cases have already been released in Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures—and soon, ten more cases will enter your repertoire with the upcoming release of The Thames Murders and Other Cases.
Today, we’ll take a closer look at the introduction to the first of those cases—The Munitions Magnate—to give you just a taste of what you might expect to find!
