New Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective Cases Are Coming

image

Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective is a fan favorite replete with mystery and deduction. Now players can re-enter the dimly lit world of Sherlock Holmes with Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures. This pending release will act as a stand alone game, or as expansion; reopening old cases with new information. Players will comb the city of London from Regent’s Park to the infamous neighborhood of Whitechapel looking for clues in the string of grisly murders of the city’s female residents.

Bezier Games announces One Night Ultimate Alien Kickstarter Campaign

In a move to completely dominate the social deduction game space. Bezier Games has announced the upcoming Kickstarter for One Night Ultimate Alien. In addition to allowing players to act as alien or villager roles, Bezier is introducing Dynamic Rules, a mobile application aspect which will help ensure each game is unique. More from the press release:

“In One Night Ultimate Alien, players are assigned a role, perform actions secretly during a “night” phase, and then have just a few minutes to discuss among themselves who the alien invaders are. All players vote, and the role of the player with the most votes is revealed. If it is an Alien, the Villager team wins. If it isn’t, the Alien team wins. The game takes less than 10 minutes to play, but is so addicting players may find themselves playing game after game for hours on end.
While previous One Night games took advantage of the free One Night app to guide players through night time actions, Alien relies on the app to ensure that each game has a unique set of rules for each role. These Dynamic Rules have never been used in a traditional board game before, and they breathe a gust of fresh air into the social deduction genre.”
