In Sherlock 13, first published as Holmes 13, the players take the role of a detective, trying to unmask the famous thief Arsene Lupin, who is among them in disguise.
The game consists of 13 character cards, with 2 to 3 characteristics each. Each characteristic is shared by 3 to 5 characters. The cards are shuffled and one is drawn and put aside. This card represents the disguise chosen by Arsene Lupin. The other cards are distributed evenly among the players. The players now tally the total of characteristics they have on their cards (e.g. 2 detectives, 1 female, 0 genius etc) and note them for later use.
Players now take turns, asking a question to gather new evidence:
a.) To all players: “Who has (at least one) of (this characteristic)?
b.) To one player: “How many of (this characteristic) do you have?
Using these clues the players try to figure out which disguise Arsene has chosen (i.e. which card is missing). Instead of a question, a player may announce which character he suspects to be Arsene in disguise. That player then secretly checks the hidden card. If the suspicion was correct, this player wins the game, otherwise the player is eliminated and the other players continue.

A streamlined and distilled Clue game. Replayability might be lacking in the long run but other than that it's a great little game.
An interesting deduction puzzle a la Clue, but which gets to the point. It's just enough for my tastes. Because it takes your turn to Accuse, there is also that need to get a feel for where other players are, because sometimes you need to take a guess when you know who won'T get another turn. Playing with 2 or 3, however, will lead to some boring shuffles, but these are usually over with quickly.
Bon jeu de déduction très intelligent. Beaucoup plus rapide que Mistery Express et Mystère à l'Abbaye. Variante à 6 joueurs: - Donner 2 cartes à chaque joueur (utiliser les 2 parties de la boîtes comme écran de jeu) Variante à 5 joueurs - Donner 2 cartes à chaque joueur et laisser 2 cartes sur la table avec le suspect - Comme à 2 joueurs, un joueur peut échanger une carte sur la table avec l'une de sa main face visible
