Space Cowboys has announced that the work of Sherlock Holmes is not done yet. The world of Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective is expanding again with Carlton House & Queen’s Park in the first quarter of 2018.
The fog creeping its way through the streets of London envelopes you in mist. The streets are lined with gas lit lamps, highlighting the various shops and other establishments. Victorian London is known for its greatness, but within the dark streets, devious acts of crime are committed far too often. Outcries from the beautiful Queen’s Park can be heard, warning all that are within earshot that something is perpetually amiss. Whispers in dark taverns mention the mysterious Carlton House Mansion—the crimes that have been committed inside are both unspeakable and incredibly difficult to solve.
As in each of the Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective games, this edition includes 10 cases for you to solve as you enter the world as one of Victoria London’s Baker Street Irregulars. The games plays co-operatively for multiple players to work on the same case together.
The new stand alone expansion includes some of the most rare and long out-of-print expansions from the original game by Ystari. These cases have been updated and revised, correcting errors that existed in previous edition.
Playing the Long Game
Space Cowboys has indicated that the Carlton House & Queen’s Park includes some of the longest cases in the series to date.
Each case provides an introduction but the rest is up to you. Provided with a map, directory, and newspapers, you have the freedom to go wherever you want to chase down clues and solve these mysteries. In addition to the traditional maps of London, Carlton House & Queen’s Park collection provides two new locations to explore. Irregulars can now explore the grounds of Carlton House and inside the house itself, as well as a map of Queen’s Park.
In the Box
Like in previous iterations of the game, boxes will include:
- 10 Case booklets
- Additional resources to aid you in your journey
