Mr Jack pocket :
Now, you can take Mr. Jack with you everywhere you go and play wherever you want!Description :
Rediscover Holmes and Mr Jack in a rapid and cunning game of hide and seek. Excitement guaranteed!Aim of the game :
goal of the player who plays Jack is to escape the investigator before
dawn or to leave the district by taking advantage of the darkness. For
the player who is "the detective", his goal is to uncover which
investigator Jack is impersonating and to catch him before dawn.Rules of the game :
turn is played in 2 stages: the Manhunt and the Appeal for Witnesses.
During the first stage, 4 actions are carried out, 2 per player. These
actions enable the Detectives to be moved round the District, for
example, to change the facing or position of an area or to obtain Alibi
cards. During the 2nd stage, there is an Appeal for Witnesses. Mr. Jack
tells the Investigator if his character is or is not in the
Detectives'line of sight. The Investigator can thus perhaps clear some
characters by turning tiles over to their empty side, thereby reducing
the number of suspects and closing the net in on Mr. Jack.
Content : 9 street tiles, 9 Alibi cards, 3 Detective tokens, 4 double-sided Action tokens, 8 double-sided Time tokens.Assets of the game :
A version of Mr Jack that is easier to explain, quicker to play and which can be taken anywhere.
