Description Edit | History

With illustrations from the original novels, this card game goes some way to evoke the feeling of the chase through Victorian London to unmask Moriarty and other villains. Players draw and lay cards in sequence, Movement, Location, Info, Action, Detectives and Villains. So I might take a train to the Country, find a clue and use a Disguise. I can use an Inspector, Arrest or Alibi card on my opponents and so on. Play ends either when an Arrest successfully reveals a Villain, or when a player discards their last card, a Villain, who Escapes. Scoring is based on cards remaining in your hand, and if you are the arresting or guilty player, caught with a Villain in your hand.

8 Sherlock Holmes: Luxury Edition Redesign - Part 1
Part 1 of my redesign of Sherlock Holmes the Card Game. Designed to be Printed out Single Sided with the backs for each card on the same page. Cards were supposed to be at Standard Playing Card Size. However highest resolution files have been lost in a computer fire. I recommend resizing these cards to match Euro or American size where the resolution loss isn't as noticable.
