Jack the Ripper is in town. One player plays as the detective, and one as Jack. Only Jack knows which character he is. The detective needs to work out which of the characters Jack is- he can only make one accusation during the game. Jack must escape or evade capture over the eight rounds to win. Move the different players around the board and use their different abilities to help you. Although complicated to start, this has become one of our favourite two player games.
In Mr. Jack, one of the two players represents Jack the Ripper, who will be one of the eight characters on the board. This player knows which character is Mr. Jack, and his goal is to flee from the district as soon as possible (or avoid being accused for eight turns). The other player represents an independent investigator (not represented on the board) who tries to guess the identity of Jack — but he can make only one accusation during the game!
