In this classic game, one player is criminal mastermind "Mister X" while the others are detectives, chasing him across a board of central London. What makes it tricky is that Mister X records his movement secretly, while the police move their pawns openly across the board.
To make the game a bit easier for the detectives, Mister X must reveal his location every few rounds and his mode of transport is (usually) known. If the detectives can deduce where he's gone and one of them lands on the same place, they win. Mister X wins if he manages to elude the detectives until they run out of steam.
Scotland Yard is a great family game and provides a challenge even for hardened gamers.
