Jack the Ripper hides in the darkest streets of London.
Will you be able to stop him.

Letters from Whitechapel is a crime and investigation game by the designers of Garibaldi and Mister X: Flight Through Europe, inspired by Jack the Ripper's murders and Scotland Yard's desperate attempts to stop them.

Each night, the player who controls Jack commits a new murder and tries to reach his hideout. The other players, in the role of detectives, try to track him down, collecting clues that can lead to his capture.

Letters from Whitechapel is a tense, historically accurate game for 2 to 6 players, featuring intense and graphic design.

Review
A good game - played a few times at Raiders of the Games Cupboard and subsequently. It is a co-operative game, with up to 5 players being constables and one person being Jack the Ripper. Jack selects one victim from a pool of available victims, and then has to make his escape back through the streets of London to his hide-out. It is turn based and the police players move their pieces to where they think the Ripper is, and search adjoining spaces. The aim over four or five nights is to narrow down and find the Ripper\\\'s hideout, or (and you would have to be lucky) catch him on the streets, before he kills his last victim. Games play is simple the challenge is good enough, with clues, false clues and so on. My only criticism is some of the playing pieces - the clue tokens are small clear plastic discs, which are not really visible on the board when placed. I have replaced mine with some old green tiddly-wink discs and the result is they are much more visible, and players can see the pattern of clues more easily.
