The latest addition to our game collection is Mr Jack Pocket. Basically a very smart two player cat and mouse game in which Jack the Ripper tries to stay out of sight of Sherlock and his team or tries to outsmart them while being seen. It’s a quick portable game that takes about 15 minutes and worth checking out if you’ve never heard of it and are looking for a smaller game with a smaller price tag for two players.

Now, about that team of Sherlock… my first reaction was: What about Wiggins?! We’ve played a few cases of Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective and in that game the team clearly exists of Sherlock, Watson and Wiggins!

I tried to draw the comic a little in the style of the artwork of the game, but I somehow ended up channeling the art style of Tiny Wooden Pieces a bit as well. Check out their great comics about board games if you haven’t already. 🙂

What’s your favorite Sherlock Holmes themed game?

My favorite is the full sized Mr. Jack. It’s deduction but it’s clearly defined enough that my wife loves playing it with me. She finds the Letters From Whitechapel style games too logic heavy for her liking. We do also love Pocket. I keep it in my micro game carrying case of awesomeness. Keep up the great comic!
