EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The case of the mysterious puzzle is afoot. Can you crack it? Put your Sherlockian mind to the test with The Sherlock Limited Edition. In this puzzle game full of 52 brain-bending puzzles, you choose a challenge card from the case book, collect the wooden rods shown on the front of the challenge card, and fit the rods inside the cube in order to the crack the case. All of the rods must lock together and fit completely inside the cube in order to crack the case. There are solutions on the back of each challenge card if you get stumped. There are seven difficulty levels of challenges ranging from elementary to Sherlock. 

Is It Fun?

This is a game that's all about critical thinking skills. Kind of like what Sherlock Holmes used to solve cases. This will really test your deductive reasoning and short-term memory, but if you enjoy solving these types of puzzles, then this game will be right up your alley. And the beechwood puzzle pieces and pine storing case make this something worthy of keeping out on display when you're not playing with it or a lovely gift for a fellow puzzler.

Who It’s For

The Sherlock is for one player ages 10 and up. Anyone who likes puzzles and brainteasers will enjoy trying to figure out how to solve the challenges in this game.

What To Be Aware Of

The game comes with 52 challenge cards, a puzzle cube, and 32 precision cut wood rods.
