Another criminal is on the run and Sherlock Holmes has a lead! Of course, he’ll have the culprit behind bars in no time… Unless you beat him at his own game! Holmes isn’t the only capable mind in London and it’s about time someone noticed! With the help of your associates, gather evidence, follow the clues, and use your power of deduction to solve the case before the great Sherlock Holmes! Whatever will remain, however improbable, must be the truth!
At the start of the game, players will select one of
the crimes to solve. A number of suspects, motive, and opportunities will be available for the players to convict of the crime. Each player holds a set of five clues, but they won’t be able to see their own clues, only their counterparts. Each turn, a player may either: assist another detective, investigate a crime scene, confirm evidence, eliminate dead leads, or pusue new leads.
Players will either win together if they can gather enough evidence to make a conviction before Holmes does, or crumble under the stress of the case.
Beyond Baker Street will be pre-released during this year's edition of the UK Games Expo (June 3rd - 5th), where designers Robin Lees and Steve Mackenzie (booth D14) are expected to meet with the fans!
