Sharpen your mind, for the dark mysteries that once stood before the great Sherlock Holmes are now yours to solve.
In Watson & Holmes, two to seven players are presented with one of thirteen cases, each accompanied by a series of questions. Players must travel from location to location in order to obtain clues and information, competing to reach the most coveted destinations first and sabotaging their opponents along the way. Once a player feels they have successfully uncovered the truth, they may approach Watson and Holmes with their conclusion. If their answers are correct, they win the game, but if they miss the mark, the other investigators must continue the search until the case is solved.
Each of the thirteen cases included in Watson & Holmes provides the competing detectives with a collection of initial clues and information. The front of each case booklet indicates a card layout, forming the game board, while the back provides a short narrative, describing how the dynamic duo came to investigate the case and what little information they initially had to work with. Varying in difficulty, the amount of time and attention to detail required will be different on each case. With new and different locations to visit each and every time, none of the investigators will begin with any kind of advantage when tackling a new case.
