Who was Schinderhannes?

Expansion Sets

Solo Card Game

Brief Description

The players take on the roles of local inhabitants of the Soonwald forest in the year 1802. They sit together at their table in an old tavern, a map of the area spread out in front of them. The map (the board), shows the districts and locations in which Schinderhannes committted his crimes. The players talk about his crimes. Each has heard something different or read the newspapers or police reports.

Together they try to work out where Schinderhannes committed each crime. The players use the cards to gain clues about the locations of the crimes (such as, ‘In the autumn of 1798 Schinderhannes and Peter Petrie tried to steal a donkey’ or ‘Schinderhannes commits a felony in the east’).

As more cards are played, more information is gathered together, forever narrowing down the possible locations.

A player who provides more information towards the reconstruction of the crimes will receive more points. At the end, when the locations for all the crimes have been found, the winner is the player who contributed the most to the discussion.

"Every turn is a little logic puzzle.

A friend commented that its board gaming Sudoku, which I agree with.

I don't think there's much long term strategy in this game, but the mechanisms are so unique that it's simply refreshing to play this one"
