The official release in France is November 25. But we still don't expect getting the rights for any other languages, so it may be a bit tricky to get if you don't live in a French-speaking country. whistle

I'm really sorry to hear that. A quick Google search indicates Sherlock Holmes is in the public domain, but clearly there was some legal complication (or that LA Times article is wrong) that is harming iello.

Maybe it's because I'm a wonk, but I'd love to read a blog or news article on iello's struggle to release this game. I'm sure there's an interesting story here.

Actually, not really, and it has nothing to do with Sherlock. The original publisher of the game made deals with other companies for licences in different languages (including English), so we only got it for the French language. We decided to go for Sherlock vs. Moriarty for our version, but we still only have limited rights for the game itself. That's it. Sorry there's not a juicier story here…

How do the rights work in terms of online sales? Are you only allowed to sell it inside French speaking countries? Or do you just not think other countries would want the French version?
(I totally want the French version btw)

Licenses state territories or/and languages. In this case, I'm pretty sure it's both: we can only make a French version, and sell it only in French-speaking countries...

Thank you for that information.
I'm going to Paris for a few days next year so hopefully I can figure out how to find a copy

Does Canada count as a French-speaking country? Will it be released in Canada?
(Easier to get from there to U.S. than from France )

Yes: our games in French are all available in Canada (at least in Québec) through our distributor there, Le Valet.

That's the sealiest thing I've ever heard!

This is a bit sad to hear. I have the Don't Mess with Cthulhu version (backed it on kickstarter), but I have so many games in that theme, and I think the traditional TimeBomb version works so well for this, I'd love to have something like this. Might need to take a road trip to Canada!

If you end up getting the French version and are looking to get rid of Don't Mess with Cthulhu's KS promos, let me know. Fairly desperate to get the KS Exclusive content to give to a friend who just got into the hobby when I gave him a copy of the Don't Mess with Cthulhu base.

I had a look on their website and I couldn't see it. Do you know when it will be up? I have a friend in Canada at the moment who is coming back in a few weeks so I only have a short window to get it sent to them

Yes, it usually takes 4-6 weeks for our games to cross the ocean, but we were able to ship this one a little before the release in France, so I'm hopeful it'll be out in Québec before Xmas.

I actually just ordered mine from Le Valet d'Coeur in Quebec. They just got it in stock.

Gorgeous artwork! Can't wait to get it!
(And I hope it gets here before Christmas so my girlfriend gets an awesome present! She loves the game.)

Thank you! Much cheaper than having it shipped from France.

The quality of the Iello components is very good. I'm not disappointed with buying this version and using translated rules.

It would have been nice to have some of the added layers from the Cthulhu version (anti-tamper wires for Necronomicons and loss tokens for Insanity tokens, for example), but the base game is still a ton of fun to play. Being able to play up to 8 players is very nice.

Just got my set today. Really nice! I'm glad I got this version. Especially like the extra "real" clippers that come with it.
