I am not a Sherlock Holmes fan although I am not a hater either. My wife and daughter are fans, and the 3 of us played this game several times over the holidays. It was wonderful. There are 4 levels of questions, and we worked our way up to the harder ones. We didn't always get them right but we had a lot of fun trying!
Great game, don't listen to people who say it's too difficult. As long as you can think outside the box, and have deductive reasoning skills, its a fun game, but it's easy up to fiendish level, where it becomes a nice challenge.
Even though me and my family are Sherlock fans, we are disappointed. The game set up is great & it seemed like it could be a fun game. I regret purchasing the game simply because it's too difficult. Even at the "elementary" level, very few "cases" are solvable even for my in-laws who are doctors, & their family whom I figured would succeed at a game like this. You really have to think in a unique way. Some of the solutions are baffling & seem to make no sense. I'm bummed I removed the plastic wrap, because I can no longer return it.
