There's a crook on the loose in this classic, catch-a-thief board game! The thief in question is Mr. X, a mysterious suspect on the run from the law through the streets of London. And it's up to you, the officers of Scotland Yard, to catch him. The interlocking systems of the London transit system set the stage for this game, which challenges players to navigate by taxi, bus, and underground to close in on the invisible Mr. X, whose location is kept hidden for most of the game. Can the cops find the crook before it's too late? An intensely fun game that will stand the test of time. (Ravensburger, $27.25)
