  1. We bought this as a gift my in-laws last Christmas. We enjoy playing board games together and had previously gifted them Ticket to Ride, so knew they would enjoy the style of game.

    It took quite a long time to get to grips with the instructions compared to other strategy games we have played, however once we understood the rules we were hooked! The game requires players to split into "police" and "Mr X" with the police having the aim of catching Mr X, and Mr X having the aim of evading the police. Players navigate the London travel system, by walking or getting on the bus or tube. Since transport costs money, players have a finite distance they can travel each turn, and a finite number of times they can travel by tube or bus. When we started playing, the player who was Mr X felt a little ganged up on, but after a few games, we realised that Mr X has the upper hand (more moves on public transport and their position is secret whereas the police are shown on the board) so found it was just as fun to play on your own against the rest of the players. Also, Mr X gets to wear a silly looking visor so that the police can't see him or her looking at the game board when making a move.

    This is a really fun game to play but has a learning curve so it wouldn't suit those with a short attention span. 
  2. This game is simple yet fun and engrossing. Unlike other games, the players work together and try to outwit lone player Mr X. In our experience a game takes around 45 mins. People can take turns as the quarry and younger players are not disadvantaged as they may be with knowledge based alternatives.  
  3. Great game for all ages . used to play this when we were kids and, so pleased to see it back again. Can be played as a 2 player game as well which is also good fun. My children love playing it especially as MR X. Take the tube, bus or taxi to escape the police or even a ride down the river with your mystery cards. Sometimes you're caught quickly or with a little luck and cunning you make it all the way to the end and escape.
