Scotland Yard

Scotland Yard

An international super-spy, so secretive that he is only known as Mr. X, is detected in London, and Scotland Yard is on the hunt. In the game Scotland Yard, one player takes the role of Mr. X, with the other players being Scotland Yard detectives searching for him throughout Central London.

Mr. X leaves small clues to his whereabouts as he moves by bus, taxi, or underground. Mr. X moves first and writes his move in his travel log, indicating what method of transportation he used but not where he moved. Then, each detective makes their move, cooperating with the other detectives in an effort to close in on Mr. X. The vigilant members of Scotland Yard must deduce the location of Mr. X by his mode of transportation and occasional sightings before he can escape the city. With clever teamwork, the detectives can surround and trap Mr. X in time. But if Mr. X can make 24 moves without being caught, he escapes and wins the game!
