Have you ever had the desire to walk the streets of Victorian London with Sherlock Holmes in search of Professor Moriarty? To search the docks for the giant rat of Sumatra? To walk up Baker Street as the fog is rolling in and hear Holmes cry out, "Come, Watson, come! The game is afoot!"? Now you can! You can enter the opium den beneath the Bar of Gold, but beware, that may be Colonel Sebastian Moran lurking around the corner. You can capture the mystery and excitement of Holmes' London in this challenging and informative game. You, the player, will match your deductive abilities against your opponents and the master sleuth himself, Sherlock Holmes.
In Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective, you are presented with a mystery to solve, and it is then up to you to trace the threads of evidence through the byways and mansions of nineteenth century London. You will interview suspects, search the newspapers for clues, and put together the facts to reach a solution.
Why were two lions murdered in Hyde Park? Who is responsible for the missing paintings from the National Gallery? Who murdered Oswald Mason and why? These are just a few of the cases that will challenge your ingenuity and deductive abilities.
This is not a board game: No dice, no luck, but a challenge to your mental ability. The game has been thoroughly researched for Holmesian and Victorian accuracy so as to capture a feeling of that bygone era.

This is unofficial errata for the English version of Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective by Ystari. Translations by amikezor. Updated 12/13/15 to fix typos.
So far this covers Case 3, The Mystified Murderess. It is three replacement pages for the case book, formatted to look like the original pages. The intention of the errata is to make the English game more functionally match the French edition, which had some of its clues updated to match the new solution in Ystari's version.
The errata is presented as full page replacements, so players will not have the game spoiled by knowing what has been updated.
If you haven't played Case 3 yet, you'll probably want to incorporate this into your game to avoid some frustration and confusion.
If you have the version of Sherlock Holmes from...
"The Mystified Murderess" is one of the weaker cases in the English edition of Ystari version of "Sherlock Holmes, Consulting Detective". The reason is that the authors changed the guilty person from the original case to someone else, but forgot to fix all the entries in the English case book. This file contains updates to two of the entries of the case book, that are a direct translation of the Italian version of the game (originally posted in the SHCD forum on BGG). These updates should make this case better playable.
Changes are made in entries 13 WC and 17 WC.
Il Mistero dell'Impiccato (with revised graphics)

My wife wrote to Asterion ( site.asterionpress.com - great publisher from Italy ) to send them this upgraded file: they replied saying that they will evaluate to replace the version freely downloadable from their website with this one.

Case is from the great Yann Gentil.
Differences from the other version:
- added front page with graphics similar to the official cases
- renamed as "Case #5bis" as the date and setting fits
- modified graphics for a distressed piece of paper clue
- interleaving page between Questions and Solution
- booklet made by 12 pages...
