Beyond Baker Street is a good looking card game in a similar vein to Hanabi. In it you play cooperatively as other characters from Sherlock Holmes trying to solve a case before the man himself manages it. To do this you will each be dealt a hand of cards, but you will each be unable to look at your own hand of cards and only see the other players' hands. Each card has a number from 1 to 6 and one of four types (clue, document, etc) which are used to solve the three parts of a case (suspect, motive, opportunity).

The game plays out with players giving each other information about what is in their hands by pointing to all cards that are either a number or a type so they can solve the case, but each time information is given Holmes advances towards solving the case himself. Each player also gets a role card that can help and/or hinder them in various ways which gives the game some extra variety. The game is also available on 365games sister site shop4world at the same price if you have points to spend there. The game was selling for around £30 not too long ago which seemed a tad high, but this seems a great price to me.

Here's the info from the store page:

Another criminal is on the run, and Sherlock Holmes has a lead! He’ll have the culprit behind bars in no time… Unless you beat him at his own game! With the help of your associates, gather evidence, follow the clues, and use your power of deduction to solve the case before the great Sherlock Holmes! After all, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth!

  • An interactive gameplay based on your deduction abilities.
  • A race to the truth where a single mistake could cost you the lead.
  • Solve complicated cases in less than half an hour.

Heat as this looks like a good price for a well reviewed game. I can’t access the site at the moment though

Link seems to be working now, for me at least.

Cool, always wanted to know a bit more about Gerry Rafferty's back catalogue

That's a shame, I do enjoy games with a bit of gratuitous sax in them
