The overview of the game is ...
Using powers of deduction and communication, the players work as a team to eradicate dead leads and find clues to prove who, how, and why. All the relevant clues are available to them to do so. They just won't know it. On top of that, Sherlock Holmes himself is already on the case. Can they solve the crime before he does?
At the start of Beyond Baker Street, players select one of the crimes to solve, and a number of suspects, motives, and opportunities will be available for the players to convict of the crime. Each player holds a set of five clues, but they won't be able to see their own clues — only their counterparts. Each turn, a player may either:
- ASSIST another detective
- INVESTIGATE crime scene
- CONFIRM evidence
- ELIMINATE dead leads
- PURSUE new leads
