1885. A bomb explodes in the Houses of Parliament. A young laborer is caught nearby.

Mycroft Holmes is charged by the crown to prove his guilt. Unfortunately for Mycroft, his brother, Sherlock, has been hired to prove his innocence. Each brother has seven days to build the best case. May the best detective win!

Holmes: Sherlock & Mycroft is a set collecting card game. Cards represent major and minor characters from Doyle's novels. Place a token on a character to perform his or her special action, allowing you to collect evidence or earn investigation tokens in many different ways. Each day a new character is revealed, adding new options. At the end of the week, the player who has assembled the best sets of evidence will win the game.

Listen in to learn more about the game and why we think it has earned the Spiel of Approval Award!
