The faithful adaptation of the board game: Mr. Jack Pocket! The famous and thrilling 2-player cat-and-mouse game.
The Pocket version tweaks the rules for shorter, more intense games.
Whitechapel, 1888. Despite the police’s best efforts, Jack is still on the loose. The famous Sherlock Holmes is tasked with ending the crime spree of this maniac. But Jack has a few tricks up his sleeves and disguised himself as one of the detectives on the crime scene! It is up to Sherlock to unmask the madman; but he must hurry, or Jack will vanish into the night…
HOW TO PLAY:
Each player endorses one role: Sherlock or Jack.
Sherlock's goal is to clear every other investigator until there is only one left: the one Jack is impersonating. In order to achieve this, he will need to have line of sight over his fellow detectives; each night Jack will have to tell if he is currently visible or not, allowing Sherlock to eliminate suspects. On the opposing side, Jack's goal is only to delay the investigation until dawn, when he can escape. Each night, both players will be able to reshape the board in order to shed a dim light on the streets of the city, or to remain hidden in the shadows...

Ratings and Reviews
Core works very well. Chrome needs some polish.
The core the of the game is good but the interaction design needs more polish.
The Duel - Online mode dead ends the user. The baffling white Asmodee logo is pervasive in the UI but doesn’t do anything on many screens. (-(against the dark backgrounds it’s attractive to focus on and try tapping)
So after being dead-ended, I have to exit the Duel menu, discover a Profile menu option and then create an account or log in.
And then, back out of that and go back into the Duel - Online section.
That’s a lot of work just to get online play going. Some users may not have put the mental effort into that. Perhaps there would be more online players if users weren’t dead-ended when in the Duel - Online section.
Also- the animated tutorial is infuriating as if you miss something you can’t go back a step. You have to exit the tutorial and go through the whole thing again to re-watch that step you didn’t quite get. :). Eventually I got it.. a lot of work was put into explaining the game. You just have to watch it a few times or learn how to play the real game on YouTube I guess. Or find the game instructions online :)
Cheers!!! Very happy to have the game and it does play very well in solo. Without video connections, chat or opponent reactions it may be kind of a stale playing online anyhow. Haven’t been able to try it as no one is on the server yet :).
Nice game, good gameplay! I hope you gonna make the full game too!
There may be a good game in here somewhere, but the tutorial is incomprehensible.
