My favorite version of Mr Jack...I really love this one.

Online version will probably be available sometime next year, there are some very nice improvements to that version and unfortunatly it is very addicting...just like the old one but even more so.

Wow, this is even better than the original Mr. Jack!

The more open, more dynamic New York board allows for more creativity and trickery and outwitting. There is more opportunity to bluff and to try bold moves. The decision tree is broader in New York, which may sound like it would slow the game down too much. But I find that in New York, I'm less tempted to try to grind out all the logic of "if I choose this character and go here, then he can do this and then this." There's realistically no way I can anticipate all the possible moves in a reasonable amount of time, so I'm more willing to settle for a "yeah, I think think this might work out" type of move.

All of the small flaws of the original Mr. Jack have been addressed. Too hard for Jack to escape if the inspector is careful? Now it's a very real threat. Balance slightly favors the inspector? Nope, now it's even. Goodley so powerful that you're almost forced to choose him first? There's no one like that in New York. Need to hide the alibi cards behind the box because the color is visible along the bottom? Not in this version. Board feels too static? Now you can create and change the terrain as you play.

I didn't play very often the first Mr Jack. But this one is really better for me because everything is changing in each party.
The game is harder for the policeman.

Some things remaing equal to the original "Mr.Jack" game, namely, the same gameplay, 8 turns and 8 characters, but strategy changes a lot, now you have lots of open spaces, and locations on which characters are always invisible, such as the parks and Liberty Island.
You have to deal with a lot of open spaces in the beginning, but as the game progresses changes in the game board may force you to change the whole strategy. Takes more time to master than "Mr.Jack". It's more brain burner than Mr. Jack as it offers many possible strategies.
It seems that the Jack player has more chances of escaping and winning this time, and now any character can gain an alibi card just by visiting on the game board a pseudo-character - 'the informant'.
I'm not sure if I like the fact that characters are always invisible in the liberty statue and on parks, this way it's very easy for the inspector, once he has a clue of whom might Mr.Jack be, or just by PLAIN LUCK, to put him on one of this places and discovering very easily his identity - supose: In a even turn(2,4,6), everyone is in light, Mr.jack plays a character on to the light and inspector moves 2 characters, that by chance include moving Mr.jack onto a park, then Mr.jack plays the last character more often than not, the only option is simply just putting that character invisible, but this eliminates everyone except those 2 characters - it seems that it's too much left to luck. Luckily that doesn't happen very often.
I still have to play a few more times to get it. It's a more complex version of "Mr.Jack". Very tricky. AP is huge in this game.
The art work is excelent and add to the quality of the game.

The original Mr. Jack has more theme to it, this one feels more mathematical, much more complex but the theme doesn't shine as much, but it's more balanced than Mr.Jack original game.

A ce jour, probablement le jeu le plus addictif auquel j'ai joué !!! Matériel superbe, règles simples, une profondeur de jeu très intéressante et pour couronner le tout, la possibilité de jouer en ligne sur http://mrjack.hurricangames.com/ depuis mi-mai 2010.
Immersion totale dans une ambiance de traque, suspens, tension, coups de théâtre, déduction, bluff tous les ingrédients pour en faire un jeu exceptionnel !
Clairement plus puissant que le jeu de base à WhiteChapel.

I was looking for a good deduction game and this was the most interesting. I wasn't disappointed. In fact, "interesting" is the best word to describe MJiNY. I would say that it is a very interesting game! Very interesting indeed. think about that for a moment.

Mr. Jack in New York is an improvement on Mr. Jack in almost every possible way: modular board, more balanced between Jack and Inspector, more tactics and strategy, more balance between abilities of characters (unlike in the base game where Goodley is overpowered and Watson is highly underpowered, for example.) I love the added element of the Informant to draw Alibi cards. My favorite aspect of New York is Liberty Island, which can be cleverly utilized by both Jack and the Inspector. The transformation of metros, lights and buildings into parks is also brilliant. This is a phenomenal evolution of the Mr. Jack framework.

Spectacular game, possibly one of the best 2-player games out there. Asymmetric, but with equal chances of winning. This version essentially makes the original obsolete, since it fixes all the problems. I have absolutely no complaints about the game.

Wait, I take that back. One small complaint, the setup is incredibly annoying. it should have been printed on the board somehow.

Played for 3 times and I still discover it
I appreciate the authors assuming a higher risk (mechanisms, re-playability, aso) in creation of a game that works only for 2P.
