IDW Games Solves the “Purrrfect” Crime with Purrrlock Holmes: Furriarty’s Trail
You’ve “cat” to be serious when it comes to cracking the case. And there is no detective more serious than Purrrlock Holmes. That’s what Purrrlock Holmes: Furriarty’s Trail is about: deduction, and ridiculously over-dressed cats.
Furriarty is “litter-ally” terrorizing London and it’s up to Purrrlock Holmes to stop him before he escapes. Baker Street is awash with suspects, ranging from a gloomy Toad to a sorrowful Goose. It’s up to you, the Inspector on the case, to decide whether they are actual suspects or pawns in Furriarty’s masterplan. That Furriarty sure is a “paw” excuse for a well-to-do cat.
Rub Furriarty the wrong way, and it’s the litter box for you!
The interesting part of the game is that when you successfully guess your suspect, and go to collect a Paw Print token, other players will not know how many points are listed on that clue token. Cat-hairs raise on your neck when you look across the table, unable to ascertain just how many points each player has collected, further heightening the tension. Catch up with Furriarty, and you score a major point advantage. At the end of the game, if Furriarty is caught, the player with the most victory points listed on their Paw Print tokens wins.
“Deduction is elementary, my dear Whiskers.”
Head out the door of 21 Baker Street to your local store. At $24.99, the game is afoot (or, a-paw, if you will).
