SHERLOCK - THE GRAND DEBUT Can be played from a single location or multiple locations using video chat. Suitable for 1-6 players.
Sherlock is an online game which can be played by 1-6 players in one location or multiple locations. The game can be played by one detective , but is designed to be played collaboratively by a group of detectives. Zoom is the suggested platform for screen sharing when playing from multiple locations.
Decide which player is the lead detective, then they should log in using the activation code sent to you via email. Please check your spam/junk folder if you haven’t received your email. Any issues please email; email@example.com
If the other detectives are in different locations, then the lead agent should set up a Zoom or Skype chat and share their screen with the other detectives.
Only the lead detective can enter codes and click on items, but the other agents can see everything that is being shared on screen and help solve the puzzles.
There is a hint/support system within the game that covers hints for each puzzle.
You can play with different people in different locations. Each other person will need their own device to connect to your screen sharing platform of your choice to be able to communicate together effectively.
This game is preferred on a laptop / desktop. It can be played on phones and tablets, but this is more fiddly. The bigger the screen the better. We recommend having a strong internet connection and using the Chrome web browser if the game is played on a desktop or laptop computer.
Team size is 1-6 players. It is also possible to play the game with just 1 player, but obviously will take a bit longer and more challenging.
Obviously, all children and adults have differing skills, abilities etc so is up for your own choice. We would however suggest the minimum age is 12 years.
If you want to compete, then sure, you just buy yourself more than one game to see whom completes first. You could also set a time penalty rule for each Hint used. This would obviously need you to be honest with each other :)
When you purchase this game, you will be sent an email and game code. You can choose to play the game whenever you want. The target time for the game is 60 mins, but there is no actual time limit, so you can take as long as you like to complete. You can leave and restart the game at will and timer will continue when you restart.
Unfortunately game codes once generated cannot be refunded.
