Hi All,

I apologize if this is listed somewhere else but I cannot find it in the forums.

Just bought SHCD online and received the "2016-1" print.

I contacted Asmodee and asked for corrected materials.

They responded back very quickly with the following:

"We are processing your request, but are unable to fulfill it at this time as we are temporarily out of the parts you need. Fear not, for there is a reprint on the way and we will be receiving replacement parts for the game along with it."

I'm a little disappointed as I was looking forward to diving in and hitting the ground running and I'm not sure what the timeline is on the reprint. I have a question in to them about that.

My questions is this:

The errata on BGG (https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/125895/sherlock-holmes-co...) says it is not needed for 2016 prints but it also mentions cases 3 & 6.. which I thought were the cases that had issues with them in the 2016-1 version. It also mentions newspaper errors being fixed.

Is this an errata for for the 2016-1 version? If not, is there a different one?

Appreciate any insight anyone may have.

The errata here should be exactly what you need for the 2016-1 version. 2016-2 won't require it.

What about if we have the 2014 version?

Yep. It will help with all Ystari [edit: English] printings before 2016-2.

Thank you.

I sent in a request and got the same reply as some others (on hold due to no replacements on hand)

I just hope they also sent the corrected newspapers assuming they also had corrected (someone reported getting casebooks from Asmodee but not newspapers)

I sent it a request a few weeks before and got the same reply. We will see how good their customer service is.

I still haven't gotten a response to my request (from a few weeks ago).

I don't recall there being any problems with the newspapers; so no need for replacements.

I thought the file section with the errata for the casebooks also has newspapers. I wouldn't imagine the newspapers were included with the errata if they weren't changed?

Just got an email from Asmodee with corrected PDFs. Looks like they are no longer replacing books, but assuming the PDFs are correct, that is probably reasonable. I didn't receive anything regarding newspapers (though I didn't specifically request anything either).

I got the same pdfs. I did ask about newspapers and didn't get any so either they forgot or the newspapers were not wrong?
But there are newspapers attached to the errata files on BGG so who knows

The newspapers were not fixed in the Asmodee's 2016-2 reprint. That's unfortunate, because there are some glaring issues with two of the cases.

On a side note, has anyone compared the differences between the original Case 6 and the new Case 6 pdf? I did a quick scan and couldn't see a difference...

Yeah, I hope the errata with the newspapers (in the files section) actually updated the newspapers...I haven't compared them.

If the 2016-2 reprint didn't fix the newspapers than that is disappointing they never got the game totally correct.

Almost sounds like I should just pick up the new version that Space Cowboy releases

Well, since I didn't encounter problems with the newspapers (nor have I actually heard of any specific issues with them), I wouldn't call the problems "glaring"....either that, or I have really bad eyesight!

One of them is where Sherlock describes how he solved the case and mentions vital information in a newspaper article. The English article doesn't include that information, but the French version does:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
In case 6 solution, Sherlock says "Even if Travis made a nice culprit, many elements quickly proved to me that he couldn't be implicated in all the murders. First off, his first article clearly shows that he could never enter the tomb and thus commit the first murder."

The article in the English version doesn't say he can't get into the tomb. In the French version says security guards prevented him.


The other is an entry that shows which location a certain character frequents. Again it's missing from the Ystari English version, but is in the original Sleuth version and the Ystari French version:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
In case 7, the character Violet Blue is found only at the Oxford Music Hall. The Ystari English version has no way of telling the players how to find her. Both Slueth and French versions have an ad for "Oxford Music Hall - Miss Violette Blue sings her heart out"

We solved the case only because we started blindly searching for venues in the area, and happened to find an entry for her.


Both problems seem glaring once you know they are there.

How did you contact them? Did you just email them, or did you have to call into customer service?

I went through their website. Under support and then component issues, there is a link to fill out a request.
