Sherlock Holmes, Consulting Detective  

B. in a deerstalker, with a magnifying glass, reading the rules

B. got me the Sherlock Holmes, Consulting Detective boardgame for my birthday. He had to buy it second hand and for reasons that are not entirely clear the vendor threw in a toy deerstalker, magnifying glass, and fake pipe. The magnifying glass actually proved quite useful - neither of our eyesight is what it was.

We kind of beat the first case. In that we figured out the solution but were confused by some of the details...

Reminds me of The Name of the Rose where (SPOILERS!!!) the detective solves the case correctly, but for the wrong reasons.

I've read Name of the Rose but don't recall much beyond the labyrinthine library!
