Wow. At first glance, I thought that this would NEVER be any good... it just didn't seem "complicated" enough. Boy was I wrong. What a complex gem in such a simple package. It features a terse and simple rule set, there are a few choices each turn, and it has quick game play -- all good things, in my opinion. The key though, is that it has the ability to be a much DEEPER brain-burner than most might think. Certainly a beautiful design if there ever was one. This is a most wonderful 2-player game.
Surprisingly deep game for how simple it is. Needs a ton of planning ahead to do well. Tons of great bluffing opportunities as well. Fairly balanced on both sides, but would prefer if it was a bit more 50/50 than 60/40.
London detectives versus Jack the Ripper! Jack is trying to escape the city but must remain incognito to do so. The detective is organizing a search party and is trying to narrow down who amongst the area's people is actually Jack. Uses a line-of-sight mechanic to determine who can or cannot see Jack, and the players must logic out which of the characters (that they both have a chance to control) is the murderer.
It's like two person clue and surprisingly strategic, and perhaps overly so. For a couple's game, it plays very quietly, as opponents must carefully position themselves with each move. The game feels fairly balanced between Jack and the Detective but I think the Detective holds a slight advantage. Its a pretty good strictly 2p game, and fills a good niche for when I'm tired of playing 2p card games and need a board game fix.
