The Dice Section: Cutting Deep Into Board Games
If you like tabletop games and you're looking for an in-depth review of the latest and greatest offerings, you'll love the Dice Section. We spend a whole month playing a single game over and over again, more than is probably healthy, and then record our thoughts on how it held up. It's not a shallow overview... it's a deep and gory Dice Section.
This month, we give the ol' Consulting Detective biz a try and find out that it's not elementary, really. Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: The Thames Murders & Other Cases is the game, and the game... is afoot. Designed by Raymond Edwards, Suzanne Goldberg, and Gary Grady back in 1981, this hobby gaming classic won the Spiel des Jahres in '85, had an awesome FMV digital release on CD-ROM systems like the FM Towns and Sega CD, and is currently published by (who else) Asmodee through their Space Cowboys imprint.
So, how did we stack up against the world's greatest detective? It's a mystery! And the clues can be found... in the podcast.
- 1:26 - All three of us have been playing Failbetter Games' Sunless Sea
- 20:26 - Our attempt at a Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective publishing history
- 32:07 - What even is Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective? In spoiler-free fashion, talk about the game and how it's played.
- 57:23 - We raise some concerns about the game, and give our verdict.
- 1:14:22 - SPOILER WARNING! We dig into specifics for cases 1-5.
