Summary:
The board game Scotland Yard is an interesting and different game since the game can and will change depending if you are Mr. X or a detective. Both have different rolls in the game. Mr. X is on his or her own but the detectives work together to find Mr. X.

Travel through Central London using their mass transit system (buses, taxis or the underground) to find Mr. X or to get away from the detectives. To take certain forms of transportation, you must be on the correct boarding spot and have the correct fare - no ticket, no ride! Scotland Yard is a strategy/mystery game and can be loads of fun for a larder group of people. Check out the board game Scotland Yard today!

I was a little slow learning how to play this game. I thought is was pretty lame until the end when I finally caught on and saw the point of the game. When it finished I was the one begging to play it again. I glaze over when the rules are read so seeing it and playing it definitely helped.

The 2014 easy version of the rules just make NO sense! What is the point of the travel log if it is just to record where Mr X has been to?

Too easy to evade detectives. If detectives get close use 2x move card to get clear of the detectives. Opening moves are towards an underground stop. Slightly less entertaining than watching paint dry.

I know the rules are written as easy as possible but this game was much easier for me to understand how to play after someone else explained the rules to me. I guess I'm just a hands on person that likes to ask questions and gets confused in all the words. Overall fun game and definitely a lot of strategy involved if you are playing competitively.
