It's not real kidnapping. He'd have to be alive for it to be real kidnapping.

Great great great. Love it! Playing Jack's tough, so when you secure his escape, you deserve every single drop of smug triumphalism coursing through your veins.

An absolutely wonderful game. It's use of deductive reasoning to solve a mystery in a head-to-head 2-player alone warrants attention. But, the game is worth playing for the experience of its design and the tense dynamics it entails. See our review.

Great two-player game. Has everything a good 2p needs. Easy Setup, Fast Play, Quick to pick up but long to master.

Great deduction game with tons of replayability...just genius. Very fine components--simple yet very high quality. I love the tension of being Jack. Hang out for the first few rounds and then later try to set up possible escapes while getting yourself into the dark at the end of a turn. The characters' abilities make for some great combos, especially if you are skilled at bluffing.

My wife routinely destroys me in this game, so naturally she thinks it's a blast.

Good grief what a good game! I have not been engrossed in the theme of a game for some time.

EDIT: rating raised from 9 to 10 after more plays. Oh the angst this game causes.

I love two player games where the players have different goals, and I love games where each character has a special ability (see: Lord of the Rings: The Confrontation, Heroscape)--thus, Mr. Jack was a no-brainer for me. The game art is among my very favorites. People that complain about the lack of deduction in the deduction element are kind of missing the point. It's not really a deduction game in the usual sense. If you think of the number of revealed players as a scoring track, Jack is trying to keep the marker on one end, while the detective is trying to move that marker to the other end. Anyway, we'll see how this holds up after a lot of plays, but right now I'm excited about it.

Mr Jack is the game I played the most. I simply love it because it is beautiful, well balanced and subtle.

My current favorite game. Those who say there isn't any real deduction probably aren't analyzing their opponents' moves/token choices, much as you would analyze an opponents' betting patterns in a poker hand. Nevertheless, I see the point about it being more of an abstract movement game than a deduction game. Great artwork, SUPERB game board.

A great deduction game for 2-players where neither player needs to write anything down. The game offers interesting decisions for character movement by incorporating semi-random character availability and special powers. I find this combination to be a perfect balance of strategy and luck.

Many have criticized the game as favoring the inspector. Am I the only one who prefers to play as Mr Jack? As Jack, I have won far more games than lost. Two of those losses were 50-50 shots in the 8th round. Thus, I consider them moral victories!
