IDW Games Solves the "Purrrfect" Crime with PURRRLOCK HOLMES: FURRIARTY'S TRAIL

You’ve "cat" to be serious when it comes to cracking the case. And there is no detective more serious than Purrrlock Holmes. That’s what this game is about: deduction, and ridiculously over-dressed cats.

"We're incredibly excited to be bringing this game to market," Jerry Bennington, VP of New Product Development says. "It's already started to develop a strong following of cat, pun, and cat-pun-loving fans."

Furriarty is "litter-ally" terrorizing London and it’s up to Purrrlock Holmes to stop him before he escapes. Baker Street is awash with suspects, ranging from a gloomy Toad to a sorrowful Goose. It’s up to you, the Inspector on the case, to decide whether they are actual suspects or pawns in Furriarty’s masterplan. That Furriarty sure is a "paw" excuse for a well-to-do cat.

The gameplay is simple and appeals to a wide audience: each player draws a Hidden Suspect card. Players take turns making guesses using an interesting clock mechanic about their unknown suspect’s identity. The other players (who can see every suspect but their own) will tell you if you’ve got a lead on your suspect. If not, it’s a dead-end. Figure out enough leads, deduce the suspect’s identity, and you get to snag a clue that leads to Furriarty.
