Description Edit | History

One of the two players represents Jack the Ripper, who will be one of the 8 characters on the board. This player knows the identity of this character and his goal is to flee from the district as soon as possible (or avoid being accused for eight turns). The other player represents an independent investigator (not represented on the board) who tries to guess the identity of Jack. But he can make only one accusation during the game!

During each turn the players move the characters, using their special powers, placing them either in shadow or light. At the end of each turn, the witnesses declare if Jack is visible (in light, or adjacent to another character) or not (alone in the shadows). This allows the investigator to know which characters are innocent. This continues as the investigator tries to eliminate suspects while Jack tries to escape. Intuition, logic and cold blood will be necessary for each of the two participants.

More Information Edit | History

Only 250 copies of the Neuroludic version were printed. The components in the game are language independent, but Neuroludic's rules are only in French. Hurrican Games was essentially founded to publish a larger distribution of this game. As the new version contains rules in English, French, German, and Dutch, the name was changed to Mr. Jack, a name that works in any of the languages and to avoid confusion with NekoCorp's Whitechapel.

6 Russian rules - Правила на русском языке (в виде книжечки)
Перевод правил игры + неофициальный FAQ не мой, а взят отсюда http://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/47125/russian-rules-pravila-na-russkom-yazyke Я их сделал в формате по две страницы на листок А4. После распечатки листы А4 сгибаются вдвое и складываются в стопку начиная с первого не меняя последовательности. Складывать нужно так, чтобы каждый лист лежал сгибом влево, а краями листа вправо. Когда все листы выложены, вдоль правого края (где края листов, не сгиб) скрипите их все вместе степлером в нескольких местах. В результате получится маленькая (помещающаяся в коробку с игрой) удобная книжечка. Вот такая http://meeple.com.ua/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/Mr.-Jack-35.jpg FAQ начинается с новой страницы, поэтому его можно скрепить отдельно в отдельную книжечку. Из FAQа выбросил...
