As Rivals of Sherlock Holmes
"Cadre of Champions"
The Original Sherlock Holmes and his Baker Street Irregulars is a card-drafting game where everyone takes their turn at the same time. You are passed a set of cards from your neighbor and you must choose one to keep, while passing the rest on to your neighbor. However, we include the additional factor of having to manage your BSI tokens (think of them like currency) throughout each round.
Draw a Plot Twist: These cards will let each round play just slightly differently, forcing you to alter your strategy to fit the event of the round.
Investigate Phase: Select a card from your hand and spend the required number of BSI tokens.
Arrest Phase: Arrest a Villain if you have Evidence cards with symbols that match all the symbols on the Villain card. Hold on to the Evidence cards, as they will be used in end-game scoring of your personal/private Inspector objectives.
BSI Bonus: At the end of each Round you will get the opportunity to grab one more Evidence card or the assistance of Holmes, Watson or Wiggins, but the order will be based on how many BSI tokens you have remaining, so use them wisely. Holmes, Watson and Wiggins each provide their own special one-time use ability for the following round of play.
Total Status Points (victory points): After 4 Rounds, each player totals up their status points on Villains Arrested and also determines Inspector's set-collection objective scores to determine their total status points. The player with the most status points earns the Sherlock Holmes metal figurine as a trophy... until the next time the game is played.
