That appears to be a German version. Might be fine for some people but if you can't read German (and haven't played Taxi) it's probably not going to be as good a buy as the one from Amazon (skeptical)7

Decent game

Do you mean this version of taxi? boardgamegeek.com/boa…axi

I can see the similarities in the board and it predates Scotland Yard by about 12-13 years (1971 - 1983).
But reading the descriptions the games appear to play differently Scotland Yard includes a hidden movement mechanic. Where one person plays mr X and the other players try to find him. (A modern ish equivalent would be something like fury of Dracula).

I've heard good things about Scotland Yard and at that price its a good deal, thanks OP heat from me
I use to play this with my sister as a kid. Nice bit of nostalgia. Thanks OP
Do you get inifnte funds to find Maddie McCann?

That ebay link is to a totally different game even though it looks similar. I would edit that before people buy it.

Scotland yard has been around a very long time and is a really good game. Not a rip off of Taxi.
