Mr. Jack is one of my favorite deduction games. Published by Hurrican and distributed in the U.S. by Asmodee, the game is set in 1888 London as the police are trying to capture Jack the Ripper. One player is Jack, trying to escape from London; the other is a detective trying to deduce Jack's identity and capture him in time.

For 2 players, ages 9 and up. About 30 minutes per game. The suggested retail price is $36.99.
