Fun Family GameI gave this to my nephew as a Christmas gift. He loves board games and I needed one that was fun, but also one that a family-sized group could play. The verdict is that he loves it. It was a lot of fun to play in a group with everyone taking a turn being the bad guy. It was especially interesting to watch the adults over-think and over-plan just to get caught fairly quickly. On the flip side, it was also interesting learning how to work together to trap the bad guy. Overall, it took a little time to go over the rules the first time, but after that it's fairly straight forward and easy to remember.5Fun game for the whole familyScotland Yard is my family's favorite board game. The kids will even get off computers and Kindles to come play. Everybody wants to be Mr X, the bad guy who has to try evade the detectives of Scotland Yard who are helped by up to 2 Bobbies. The Bobbies can travel almost anywhere using tubes, busses and taxies, while the detectives have to use their tickets that they are allocated at the beginning of the game to move. Mr X keeps a record of where he is and has to tell the other players what mode of transport he used but not where he actually is, unless he is on one of the "show yourself" rounds. He then has to put his board piece on the board and then everybody else has to try see if they can catch him before the end of the game. Mr X does have a few extra cards to make it even more difficult for the detectives. He can do 2 moves in a row and he can also travel secretly, so nobody knows what he used. He is also able to travel on the Thames, while the detectives and Bobbies can't. This game can be played by 2 to 6 people. If you have more people you don't play with Bobbies, only detectives. My kids are 8 and 11 and really get into trying to work out where Mr X is so that they can catch him (or her). We like the game so much , we even took it in hand luggage when we went on a long trip and had a long stopover so that we could play it in the airport.5Having loved this game as a childHaving loved this game as a child, and not having played for the 2 decades since, I was quite anxious for my 6 year old son to open this on Christmas morning. To my despair, it was 3 more days of him playing with all of his other toys before I could get him to play it with my wife and I, but now, its the only game he wants to play.If you played the original, the game holds pretty true to what you played back in the 80's, the board is sold and sturdy, the tickets are made of thick cardboard and will hold up. The playing pieces are a little different, but the game play holds true with one notable difference, in the original version you always played all 5 detectives against Mr X, regardless of how many players there were. In this version of the rules, there are always 4 detectives (unless 6 are playing the game, the all 5 detectives are used). With less than 4 detectives, the difference is made up with "bobbies" I call them "helpers" for my son. The bobbies are free to move at will, w/o the need to use tickets. If its just a two player game, the one detective plays two pawns that can share tickets, and two bobbies that don't need tickets. On the surface this seems insignificant, but once you start playing you'll notice that it simplifies game play for the detectives not having to micro-manage each game piece to ensure you don't run out of tickets. You do play with 4, instead of 5, detectives, but that disadvantage is made up for the fact that the extra detectives can move freely w/o needing tickets.If you haven't played the original, and that previous pargraph means nothing to you, then this is a really fun game. My wife, not being much of a strategy boardgame fan, initially commented, "this game is pointless, you like literally have no idea what you are doing, its just random guessing". That attitude was over about half way through as she got into it and became quite interested. You really do get a little bit of a rush of adrenelne playing as Mr X when you know you are about to get caught, but see an escape route, and a huge sense of relief if you can get to it. Likewise, there is equally as much enjoyment playing detective and knowing you've got Mr X trapped that is equally disappointing to you learn a few moves later he has escaped and made it far out of your reach.The game is rated for ages 8 and up. My six year old does okay with it. Its pretty easy for him when he plays detective and you can help him along, but he does on occasion mess things up when he plays as Mr. X. Its been found on more than one occasion that he made an illegal move, usually by taking a taxi to a station that didn't have a taxi route, or taking a bus or or two stations too far. This is just a learning curve however, and I doubt he will have trouble much longer.I've seen some comments mentioning the game wasn't in English. This version, that I'm reviewing, the board was printed entirely in English. The instruction manuals are printed in multi language with English being in the very back. There was one part of the English instructions that got cut off, it mentioned something along the lines of "At no time can" and then the next paragraph started. I was able to switch to the French instructions, find the part that was missing, and put it into Google translate, it just said that at no time no two detectives could occupy the same space on the same turn.5I had this when I was a kid and could only remember that it was fun. We were not disappointedGot this for the kids for Christmas. I had this when I was a kid and could only remember that it was fun. We were not disappointed! My whole family loved it! I have an 11, 8 and 7 year old. The loved the group effort you use to find Mister X and each one LOVED taking a turn being Mister X. Thanks for the great family game!4Fun Game, Good quality pieces.I received the "international version" which has instructions in many languages, and English is the LAST one in one book. So keep that in mind when you go to find English!!! I bought this as I loved it as a kid, for my kids. The components are all nice heavy weight solid cardboard. I got the version that has pictures of each type of transport, not the words. I like the pictures, so I am very pleased with that. My youngest son got very frustrated with not knowing where Mr. X was on his hidden movements. So maybe depending on the audience it might be difficult for some to grasp. But in all, great quality game, solid box, great pieces. Artwork in this international set is nice.5Instruction Guide Poor; Many Questions Remain....Bought this game as a family Christmas present. Pros and Cons below -Pros:Game and materials are sturdy and well-made. The concept and "plot", while simple, seem to be thought out and organized out well. Games are relatively short (in comparison to say, Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride, etc) at maybe 30-45 minutes with 4 people.Cons:After the first couple of games, it was clear to us that the instruction guide, while accommodating 6 languages, was very poorly executed. Being in the US, we read the US instructions. At the outset, they mentioned that for the "beginner version" of the game, the metro/tube is not used as a mode of transportation. Okay fine, fair enough. However, one would think that at a later point in the user guide there would be alternate instructions explaining an advanced(?) version, right? But the very brief US instructions explain ONLY the beginner version of the game. ZERO instruction on how to play a "non-beginner" version of the game, despite including several other game pieces that were clearly included for that version, but sat in the box unused. Later on as I perused the other languages in the instruction guide, I looked through the UK/English instructions, which were significantly different from the US/English ones. Was this the "advanced" version of the game the game implies exists, but does not bother to explain? I think so, but cannot be 100% sure because the instructions offer no explanation or guidance to this end in English.Secondly, are there 3 water taxi routes at players' disposal? On the board, it is pretty clear that the intent is to show 3 yellow-to-yellow (taxi) type routes that span great distances up and down the river, which could be very convenient in a pinch, but again, the instructions do not say a peep about these, so we did not use them since there is no mention of water taxis.These are the 2 glaring short-comings of this game in our experience. Is there somewhere online that has a more complete version of the game rules?3Great cooperative strategy game!A fun game that we feel best to play with several adults. It might be too frustrating and stressful for kids unless they are shepherded along by the entire group and being supported for their moves. As agents, we cooperate with one another on moves to try to trap the bad guy, Mr. X. The person who plays Mr. X actually has the tougher role, despite his advantage of being invisible most of the time. There's no doubt that it's a bit nerve-racking to have several people chasing you. Winning the game boils down to a combination of strategy, psychology and sometimes just pure luck. Regardless, we have a lot of fun playing Scotland Yard. And Ravensburger has, once again, made a very sturdy and easy to navigate game. The visor for Mr. X is also a nice touch, shielding Mr. X's eye movements from the agents so he can focus more stealthily on his actual location and future moves. We've played an older version of Scotland Yard that didn't have a visor and it was a distinct disadvantage for Mr. X, who is having a stressful enough time as it is. That said, the visor that is included in this version is made of thin cardboard that uncomfortably cuts into the forehead. So we would recommend that a regular visor and/or a pair of cheap dollar store mirrored sunglasses be used instead.5DEDUCTION - "It's elementary, my dear Watson"This is a game full of deduction, that Sherlock Holmes would have LOVED. This is the third one of these board games that I have purchased - one for myself and two for gifts. It is a very challenging, and extremely fun game. The object of the game is to capture the "Mister X" (who is one of the players). It is a all-vs-one kind of game. There is a network of detectives that are strung out throughout London, using deduction and clues that Mister X reveals, to determine the location of the scoundrel. It sounds east, but trust me, it is not. 3/4 of the games end early with Mister X captured, and it takes a lot of skill and solid thinking skills to be able to get away. It is a great family game that I would recommend 100% to those that are shopping for a gift for someone else. Younger kids also can play as detectives, as they are working with a team, and you can have lots of family bonding time with this game. I think that the only bad thing, is that there is only one Mister X and that everyone always wants to be him, but in all, this is a great game that I would 100% recommend to families.

Thanks.5This is a really fun game, this particular version has some oddities...This is one of the greatest lesser-known board games out there. Scotland yard is a great game for strategy and teamwork (and one loner). This version is mostly written in German, but does have an instruction book with multiple languages including English. There are a couple of variations in gameplay that were not in the original. My only "complaint" of sorts is that the Mr. X hat has been reduced to a cardboard visor that ties down. They used to use an actual ball cap. Still a great game of course!4being "Mr X" is once again a favorite, and my childrenWhen my children were still living at home, this game was among our favorites. We took turns being "Mr X". When my husband was "Mr X", he was never caught while the rest of us chased him all around London. Now grown, being "Mr X" is once again a favorite, and my children, now grown, are chased all around London. Teaches strategy and planning ahead as well as being lots of fun.5
