Aww, I got all excited when I saw this title - I thought it was the old Sherlock Holmes board game (I think it was actually called 221 B Baker Street). I loved that game (basically like an advanced version of Clue). Oh well...

As an ipod touch owner, I will purchase it when the wifi requirement to play it is removed. I can understand needing wifi to download the ebooks and additional episodes, but just to play the game

This game is so much fun. I really like how well designed the game is. The pictures are quality made and it is challenging.
