World-renowned detective. Most portrayed persona in history. The character of Sherlock Holmes has been a hero to millions since his creation well over a century ago. To celebrate Sherlock Holmes day, we’ve listed four board games below that will put your detective skills, including code breaking and deduction, to the test!
Mrs. Plumpert’s prized pot pie has gone missing and it’s now a chicken chase to crack the case!
Move around the board to gather clues and then use the special evidence scanner to rule out suspects. You’ll have to work together quickly because the guilty fox is high-tailing it towards the exit! Will you halt the hungry hooligan before it flies the coop… or will you be Outfoxed?
Oh my code! Your goal is to guess the numbers and colours of the unknown cipher tiles.
There are 6 question cards in the middle of the table. On your turn, choose one card and ask a question to an opponent to learn more about the unknown cipher tiles. Be the first player to correctly deduce the code to win the game!
In a two-player game, you’re guessing your opponent’s cipher tiles and in a 3-4 player game, you’re guessing the cipher tiles in the middle! Will you break the code before your opponents?
Communicate safely! Join the greatest Encryptor team in the world! Your mission: transmit secret codes to your teammates without letting the opposing team intercept.
Decrypto is a “scramble communication” game: you must give clues to your teammates that are precise enough so they can understand you, but vague enough to make sure your opponents don’t get the message…
We’ve been told this works well on zoom, so grab yourself a copy and dial in! There is also an expansion Decrypto: Laserdrive if you need more coding!
As Sherlock was famous for him problem solving, from the makers of Qwirkle and Q-bitz, we bring you Marble Circuit, the multi-directional marble maze with 64 puzzling challenges!
Choose a card to see your puzzle and place the multi-directional tiles on the board. Release the steel marbles to see if you land your targets. If you’re off base, move the tiles until your marble circuits deliver a picture-perfect landing!
Let us know if you’re doing anything over this weekend to celebrate the day via our social media!
