Sherlock fans can play detective with new Sherlock Cluedo

TV's most celebrated detective duo – Sherlock Holmes and John Watson – now have their own version of the classic board game Cluedo. Criminal mastermind Jim Moriarty has been found murdered in London and it’s up to fans to discover his murderer. This ‘Napoleon of Crime’ had no shortage of enemies, so there are plenty of people with a strong motive. But – who did it? Was it Mrs Hudson, in the Tower of London with the wrench or even Sherlock himself with the candlestick in the swimming pool?

The hit BBC series, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, is an ideal match for this new spin on a classic game and all the characters and locations from Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’s show feature, from Irene Adler to Inspector Lestrade.

Winning Moves, manufacturers of this unique edition, under licence from Hasbro and BBC Worldwide, says the game will be on shop shelves by November this year – plenty of time to make the Christmas wish-list for Cluedo and Sherlock fans alike. It will retail for £29.99 and will be widely available on the high street and online.

The spirit and shape of this customised edition will remain the same as with traditional Cluedo board game, however, the suspects and the locations have been customised to fit with the hugely popular BBC TV show, Sherlock.

May have to buy this as an Xmas presie for all the family... :-))

But surely that is cheating? We both know you are the only one who wants it!

I learnt long ago that the only way to get exactly what you want is to buy it yourself. This Santa cheats all the time when it comes to 'family presents'. :-))

I do the same. I have an Amazon wish list!
