At first glance they seem near identical clones (except for the maps). Is there really that much/any play difference?
I have the 1985 version of Scotland Yard but have seen NY Chase in stores.
1. In SY (at least the original version) one always uses five detectives no matter how many are playing. This works extremely well and is needed to work as a game. In NYChase, one doesn't.
2, In NYChase there are roadblocks and seemingly random elements introduced.whereas these don't exist in SY. Rather SY is a game of wits without luck and the only hidden info being Mr. X's position at specified turns. From what I saw ofNYChase, it's a dumbed-down version of SY that probably (speaking as someone who admittedly has not played it) does not work nearly as well as a game. I say that because I've played SY for over 20 years and know how and whyit works.
