It’s always entertaining when a series becomes a brand, especially when the series is one as deserving as the Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective series. If you’ve not taken the games out for a spin, you absolutely should. The Baker Street Irregulars, Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures, Carlton House & Queen’s Park and The Thames Murders & Other Cases take you into the case files of the inimitable Master Detective.
But what happens… when things get… stranger?
This is where the Bureau of Investigation steps in. Building on the investigative mechanics of the Sherlock Holmes series, the Bureau of Investigation continues to provide you with a set of case files, maps, notes, newspaper clippings that players have come to expect from the Sherlock Holmes series,
Except you’re not in Baker Street anymore. Welcome to the streets of Boston, where your investigative agency is tasked with conducting research into possible threats to the United States of America, as the Cthulhu Mythos threatens to tear the veil and you struggle to prevent a calamity of apocalyptic proportions. If you’re a fan of investigative mystery or a Cthulhu fan looking for an investigative experience, this could possibly be right up your alley.
