There are multiple references to the original Sherlock Holmes stories within this game. Knowledge of the characters and places in Doyle's Victorian London aren't necessary to thoroughly enjoy this game. I was curious, how many players have read any of the stories...

It was long time ago, however, and I do not have fresh memory of these stories...

I've read The Hounds of the Baskervilles, but only sought it out having enjoying this game so much. I thoroughly enjoyed it as well, so I plan on picking up more of the short stories in the future - and (hopefully) sitting down to tackle case ten this weekend!

And if you really want to go deeper into each story or novel you can buy not one but 2 different annotated versions! These explain a lot that you might otherwise miss including puzzling things in the stories.

Oh and have watched pretty much all the movies/ tv shows as well from Basil Rathbone on. Including the modern day spin offs.

I had read only one or two prior to getting into the game...now I have the complete collection from B&N, and have read through all. Great game, and a gateway to great literature.

I as well. Although I'm still a bit behind on Benedict Cumberbatch's Sherlock.

In addition, I have listened to as many as I could find of the 30-minute New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes Old Time Radio episodes from the 1940's, many with Basil Rathbone (the best Holmes ever). Love them! Very creative writers they had. I downloaded all that I could find, sorted, and ID3 tagged them all. I could share them if anyone was interested, as they are all in the public domain.

I am looking into different file sharing options, as my partially full DropBox account is only two gigs, and may not hold the entire radio show collection (1.87 gigs).

Let me know if you're interested.

Oh, and here is a link to some of the episodes:
