Cool Mini or Not has announced Sherlook, a board game interpretation of the “difference between the pictures” puzzles from children’s magazines. In Sherlook, two nearly identical crime scene pictures are placed out, and players need to guess how many differences there are between the photos. When only one player is left, they only have 3 more seconds to make a guess. The game continues over 10 rounds, in which crime scene photos can be arranged in very different ways, adding to the difficulty. Sherlook comes with “40 nearly identical crime scene photos”, stumps 2-6 players in about 20 minutes, and should be available now. You can read more about the game in the CMoN press release here.
