I’ve been a fan of Sherlock Holmes since I can remember and will pick up and play just about anything that features a deerstalker cap or calabash pipe. One Sherlock themed game that I’ve been hearing about since 2015 is Watson & Holmes: From the Diaries of 221B Baker Street. From its description, it takes the awesomeness of Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective and makes it a multiplayer, competitive affair. I’m in, with one caveat. Until now its been published by Ludonova and hasn’t been for sale in the US.
That’s about to change.
Earlier this month Asmodee announced that Space Cowboys would be coming out with a new version of Watson & Holmes, adapted from the Ludonova version. This one drops the post-colon portion of the title for a much more manageable moniker, simply Watson & Holmes. It also includes all new graphic design and revisions to all the cases.
Look for Watson & Holmes to hit shelves in early 2017.
