If you’ve ever fancied a Clue x Sherlock crossover board game, be prepared to be duly satisfied as Toyland now has a Cluedo Sherlock Edition.
The enigmatic board game places Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson front and center for their own version of the classic game. Was it Moriarty with the gun on the roof of St. Barts? No one knows for sure, but if you have your wits about you, we’re sure you could figure it out. The Cluedo Sherlock Edition comes with the two-player rules as well as rules for up to 6 players. The suspects in the game include Inspector Lestrade, Mrs. Hudson, Irene Adler, John Watson, Sherlock Holmes and Mycroft Holmes, with the same weapons as the original game of Clue. As far as locations are concerned, crimes will take place in Baskerville, 221B Baker Street, The Tower of London, Irene’s Flat, The Lab, Battersea Power Station, Dartmoor, Mrs. Hudson’s Kitchen, and the Swimming Pool. Our only gripe with the game is that the character pieces aren’t actually characters, but are instead generic plastic question marks that come in different colors — definitely a missed opportunity. Still, the game is worth it, for sure.
Of course, while you wait for your Sherlock Cluedo to arrive at your doorstep, check out the brand new Sherlock Victorian Special trailer.
