The Great Game of Sherlock Holmes is here!

At long last!

The Great Game of Sherlock Holmes is a card game conceived by Dean Wilkinson and designed by yours truly.  It's a "Top Trumps"-style game incorporating all 60 stories from the Canon, plus a few apocryphal stories and even a rock-paper-scissors type of Bartitsu match, all in a tin-dispatch-box container.  

Once all the orders from the Kickstarter campaign are filled, we'll be offering copies through, as well as selling them in-person at conventions and Sherlockian get-togethers.  The game is afoot!
