I just saw and ordered this new version that comes with 200 cases (including 20 brand new ones), metal tokens, as well as co-op variant. Anyone get this yet?

Wow! can not believe this game is still alive and kicking!

I own two old versions of this game, and bought several Gibson's copies on ebay to use them as gifts as they were selling for only one pound.
I enjoy these word puzzles.

Thanks for this. I was just about to order the old Hansen base version and several of the expansion packs from Big River when I decided to check BGG and found your post...I ordered this version instead and saved some money. The girlfriend is a big Sherlock Holmes fan and I'm hoping to get her off Netflix and into some gaming...wish me luck.

Is it a moose that became a detective ? Or a detective who searches for moose?

Just got my copy - but this version isn't in the BGG database. Did anyone submit it yet?

Edit: Also, I got two pipes and 0 violins in the playing pieces so check yours.

Very excited for this edition, 200 cases will take a long time to play through.

This is really cool!

Any idea what is different from the Gibsons version which is generally unavailable and if available, is priced much higher?

For example:
Are the cases covered the same?T
Is the play method used the same?

Any advice from those who have got the deluxe version would help a lot!

Thanks,
Zany.

I have it, but I don't know what was different because I've never seen the old version.

This version has 6 nice metal game pieces. Peuter or something.
The 'scotland yard' and 'skeleton key' cards are just a cheap pad of pages.
The board seems standard and of fine quality.
The cases (200!) are on index cards, and there is a booklet for every 20 cases with the clues.
The last 20 cases (#181-#200) are said to be new for this edition.

The Gibsons version has some different cases tailored to a British clientele but still very interesting to play. Game play for both versions is the same. Board artwork for Gibsons is different from US version. US Deluxe Edition has all new artwork plus collectible metal tokens. Deluxe US version has complete set of all 200 US cases, which includes 20 all new Cases (#s181-200)published for the first time.

Hi,

How different is this from the SH:CD games? I understand one has to move tokens to reach for the clues. But overall are these games shorter, easier and playable by younger players than SH:CD?

I just ordered this for nostalgic purposes. Played it all the time as a kid. With other kids my age and no adults. We had no problem with it at a younger age. It is kind of like advanced clue if I remember correctly you move to a location and get a clue so on and so on. But I haven't played in like 20+ years. So my memory is fuzzy on the game. I just no I played with friends when I was like 10 to 12 years old

Yes, my interest in board games and the like has risen recently, and I thought about trying to get more cases for my old copy of 221B Baker Street. When I was searching, I came across this deluxe edition. This was definitely a better way to get all the additional case files I never got the first time around plus some brand new cases. And there are even upgrades to the game like a somewhat larger board, metal game tokens, and alternative rules for solo and co-op play. I'm glad to have all these new cases to play; now I just have to find time to actually play them!

Can you tell me if the key and badge cards in this new Deluxe version of 221B Baker St are thin paper or printed on thicker card stock?
thanks very much,
Carl
