Sherlock: The Riddle of the Crown Jewels

In The Riddle of the Crown Jewels, you play the role of Doctor Watson. You have received an urgent summons to the rooms of your gooddd friend Sherlock Holmes by his landlady, Mrs. Hudson. Normally you are not up and about so early on a Saturday. But here you are, outside the Baker Street residence, and not a moment too soon; for the fog has thickened and travel without a lamp has become impossible.

Packaging Details

Sherlock used the newer standard box format (much the same as the standard "book-like" box but with a slipcase containing a cardboard tray which contained all the package elements). It contained a tourist map of London, a copy of June 17, 1887 "The Thames", and a black rubber key fob (Holmes and Watson).
