Scotland Yard - A semi-cooperative game: one person plays Mister X, the others detectives trying to hunt him down in the streets of London.
Get ready for a merry old chase through Chelsea, the West End, Soho or even Kensington, when you play Scotland Yard...a detective game of dogged pursuit, clever estimation and shrewd collaboration. ?One player is the mysterious fugitive Mr. X who is trying to evade capture by Scotland Yard's finest detectives who work as a team planning their moves together in order to corner Mr. X.?
Whether playing as the fugitive Mr. X or the detectives hot on his trail, all players have the same challenge: to dash through the web of streets traveling from place to place via taxi, bus and underground routes. ?To plot a move demands ingenuity, wile and the proper fare. No ticket...no ride!?Try to plan your route several moves in advance to avoid getting hopelessly stranded or cornered.
