The Sherlock Files: Elementary Entries by Indie Boards and Cards available at Gnome Games
The Sherlock Files: Elementary Entries is a cooperative deduction game. You play as detectives that must solve three different cases. There’s the case of the mysterious heart attack aboard Flight TJ1309. Next, a cold case from 1923 involving the violent and unexpected death of a famous explorer and archaeologist. Last, discover the truth behind the body that ruined one family’s 4th of July party.
The game is card based and starts with a short introduction when beginning each case. The cards each include a clue that may or may not be relevant to the case. Each player will start with 3 cards (or 2 for 6+ players) in their hand, and will take turns either revealing or discarding these cards before drawing new ones. The amount you can discuss with your partners is limited to the revealed cards or certain text on cards that haven’t been discarded. The goal is to figure out which clues are relevant and solve the case with the questionnaire at the end of the game.
Test your skills and see how you fare compared to the world’s greatest detective!
