Will you visit the cimre scene? Meet Inspector Lestrade? The decision is in your hands and each clue that you follow will bring you one step closer to the truth.

This is not a board game: There are very few rules - just a guide on how to use the Directory and some rules for playing as a team. There are no dice, no luck, but a challenge to your mental ability.
Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective is an updating of the same game that has been published in several forms since it first appeared in 1981. The continuing popularity of this game is testament to the quality of the original material which was thoroughly researched for Holmesian and Victorian accuracy so as to capture a feeling of that bygone era.
