Scotland Yard Junior

We chase mister X and his accomplice


Young detectives chase after Mister X - if they play a game for two or three players, Mister X is represented by one player, the other or other two represent the detectives.

At the start Mister X receives a set of tickets for Subway, bus, taxi and boat, a board a visor. The opposing party commands two detective figurines and begins the game with a set of tickets and a board. The starting position for all characters is marked on the board, thus detectives and Mister X know the opposing starting positions. In each round Mister X flees and then detective chase him: Mister X secretly chooses a ticket for one means of transport; if he has decided and put his fist on the table, detectives can confer if they want to advance one station or remain in place. When they move, they discard a ticket for one means of transport and move one detective. Then Mister Y shows his chosen ticket and moves accordingly. When he then stands in a station together with detectives, the detectives can put a success chip to their board. If Mister X is alone in a station, he can put down a success chip. A new round begins. Whichever party is first to fill its board, wins. In a game of four players Mister X is given an accomplice called Mister X junior. Each of them has a set of tickets, the board is shared by them and both decide at the start of the round where they want to go. Depending on locations after movement there is again only one chip for the successful party.

A perfect junior edition of a classic game - flair and challenge remain, the mechanisms have been successfully simplified and means of transports are available at any time.
