Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective

Well, as a teetotaler, myself, I have to say that I'm concerned about this mystery. O,o
Demise of a Teetotaler is a new mystery coming in the Carlton House and Queen's Park expansion for Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective. As before, these mysteries will test your skills of deduction and make you look for clues in all manner of interesting places and ways. Get a little glimpse into what you can expect with this preview.
Sherlock Holmes was the greatest detective ever (... well... at least next to Batman). If you're looking to fit in his shoes and head to the streets of London, solving all sorts of cases, you're in luck Asmodee and Space Cowboy have announced that they're coming out with 10 new mysteries for Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective.
*runs around with arms over my head*
Alright, let's do this thing!

Today we have: Tulip Bubble, Nuked, Wasteland Express Delivery Service, Brutal Kingdom, Dwarven Smithy, Crows, Sticky Chameleons, Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures, Haspelknecht: The Ruhr Valley, Rumbleslam, Game Toppers, Quantum, and Samurai Gardener.

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.
Check for prints!
*Dot comes in* I found Prince!
Nonono, finger prints!
Ok, so that episode was a take-off of Hercule Poirot and not Sherlock Holmes, but it's still funny. Anyway, one thing about a mystery is that once you know the ending, it makes it difficult to play again. Thankfully, Asmodee is here to help for those playing Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective with 10 reworked mysteries coming in The Thames Murders and Other Cases.
Sherlock Holmes is arguably the greatest detective ever created. Jack the Ripper is one of the most notorious serial killers in history (who may or may not have even really existed). Pit one against the other and you're sure to have a "what if" for the ages. That's just what you get to do in Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures, which is now available for Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective from Asmodee and Space Cowboys.
Sherlock Holmes is one of the greatest detectives known to literature. Taking the seemingly most insignificant clues, he was able to solve crimes with meticulous attention to detail. In Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective, it's you that has to be so attentive to detail if you want to solve some of London's most baffling crimes. A new expansion, Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures, a new set of mysteries await. Asmodee's posted up a preview of one of them.
Seems that the folks at Asmodee don't just want Fantasy Flight to be getting new Jack the Ripper gaming gear out to your tabletops. They've announced Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures a new game/expansion for Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective. Yes, this new set can be played both on its own as well as teamed up with your previous Sherlock Holmes set.
