The king’s castle is in danger! The evil wizard has been seen near the kingdom. Only the king’s magical ring can protect the castle, but it has disappeared. Can you find the thief?

The children of the castle are the last hope.

So good!

Hands down the best Cooperative Board Game in the whole App Store. It has been played dozens of times over the last three years and still gets picked on rainy days over newer games. Great fun for kids and adults. Hoping for Ravensburger to make more apps, especially ones like this and older board games like Enchanted Forest.

Great game, well done

I originally bought the board game for my 3 nieces ages 5-12 and they loved it! Then when they saw this we played it several times and it is even better! True to the original, yet more entertaining and no cheating ;). Great job Ravensberger, looking for Enchanted Forest next. LOVE Scotland Yard!

Love it

My daughter loved the game so much she was always asking if we could take it with us for days out. This solves the problem. She can now play it anywhere. I do wish the ghost and fairy would be more random. I know off by heart what order they're going to say things now. Other than that it's great.
