An outsmarting and guessing game featuring all sixty classic cases of the world's greatest detective, Sherlock Holmes -- plus a few extras!

Similar to the popular Top Trumps card game series, The Great Game of Sherlock Holmes is easy to learn, fast-paced and fun.



Each card covers one story and features a vintage illustration originally published in London's Strand Magazine.    There's a brief synopsis of each crime-cracking chronicle which will jog the memories of lifelong Sherlockians, or provide an exciting first dip into Holmes's adventures for newcomers.  A vast and exhilarating universe of deduction and master storytelling -- still years ahead of its time -- will fall open for you! 

There are sixty cards, one for every story in the Sherlock Holmes canon.  Each player is given an equal number of random cards.  All players pick the top card from their own piles.

Player One selects the highest ranking statistic from the card and lays the card down, announcing the category and that category's value: "MYSTERY 10," "DEDUCTION 8," etc.  The rest of the players follow suit, laying down their cards for that round.



Whoever has the highest number for that category wins all the cards presented, which are then placed at the bottom of the winner's pile.  The winner of that hand plays next. 

In the event of a tie, the players draw another card and go again.  In the event of another tie, the players keep drawing cards until there is a clear winner, who then claims ALL the tying cards!  

When a player runs out of cards, they are out of the game.  The player with all the cards at the end of the game wins!

The card deck is durable and comes in a metal container.
