Mr. Jack

The night covers the gloomy alleys with darkness and only a few corners are still illuminated by the gaslights. Eight investigators have gathered to catch the cunning Jack the Ripper. But Jack is in fact cleverly impersonating one of them.

In Mr. Jack, one of the players must help the investigators. By moving each character into light or shadow, the detective player makes successive deductions to uncover which investigator is in fact Jack, then he/she must try to catch the infamous ripper.

The opponent, playing Jack, must do his best to delay the investigation. He can even try to use the darkness to secretly flee the district!!

A thrilling game for two players!

This version of Mr. Jack contains rules in English, French, German, and Dutch, previous version was called ‘Whitechapel’.

Jack the Ripper is loose in Whitechapel Lane and it is up to the eight "Baker Street Irregulars" to find out who it is. But, unbeknownst to the other 7, the culprit is one of them! This 2-player deduction game just drips with its Victorian-era gaslit theme; the art design deserves high marks for achieving this. And, in my opinion, it plays as good as it looks. One player knows the secret identity of Jack the Ripper and tries to move him off the board to safety, while the other player is the Inspector who tries to deduce which of the characters is actually Jack in disguise and apprehend him before the end of the eighth game turn. Each of the characters has its own special ability, so as well as moving them players can control the environment to a certain extent, by moving police barricades, sewer grates, street lights etc. This is a very cleverly designed game that presents the players with a mental challenge while maintaining an element of playfulness. It is one of my personal favorites.

Mr. Jack is a refreshly new take on a dedicated 2-player game. Most games for two are card-games, but Mr. Jack is a deduction board game where one player is "the inspectors" (trying to catch Jack) and the other is "Mr. Jack" (trying to escape detection). The eight game pieces are characters who have unique abilities, one of whom is Mr. Jack. Taking turns players can move any character and use their ability. After 4 characters have been moved, some characters may be eliminated as suspects. This is the key struggle as each player will attempt to move pieces such that it will benefit *their* objective. If you are looking for a 2 player strategy game that will make you think, Mr. Jack is for you!
