I was just notified by Cool Stuff Inc. that the game is back in stock.

Checking with Miniature Market, I see that the game is also in stock there as well. Likely other American stores as well!

I found this interesting:

Cool Stuff's product page wrote:
Important note: The ten cases in The Thames Murders and Other Cases are the same ten cases released in the Ystari version of the game Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective, now fully revised and retranslated. The solutions and contents of some cases have changed.

I pre-ordered my copy from Cool Stuff Inc. about three weeks ago. I'm glad I did, too, because they seem to have sold out very quickly. I suspect they got enough to fill pre-orders plus some extra, but probably not a lot extra. I think you're right that more US stores will start getting copies soon, too, at least if they typically carry games like this.

I noticed on Miniature Market that they say, "This game can be played on its own or combined with Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures for enhanced play." There's a similar note on the Jack the Ripper game. How would combining the games work? Is that actually possible, or are they just trying to emphasize that these are all from the same series (or something like that)? Thanks!

Pretty sure their is nothing to link the cases in these two boxes together.

If you have both you then have TWO copies of the rules, directory, and map, which could be useful at the table.

But the cases don't connect across boxes. I own the one, and I owned an earlier version of the other. It's just a confusing way to say that they use the same system.

The rules might be the same, but the directory and map have changes. At least I know the Ripper cases use a slightly different map. The directory seems like it would offer slightly different options as well, though I have yet to play any of those cases.
