Holmes – Sherlock gegen Moriarty (Kosmos) is the new edition of the two player game Holmes: Sherlock & Mycroft (designed by Diego Ibanez and published by Devir). The game is in stock, but because it is the German edition of the game, we have received a few questions if the game is playable without speaking German.
A crime has happened! But the evidence is scarce and Scotland Yard is in the dark. Only one can solve the case: Sherlock Holmes. However, in the background, Professor Moriarty pulls the strings and tries to cover tracks and dispose evidence. Thus a duel between the two most brilliant heads of London breaks out. Who will be successful in the end – Holmes or Moriarty?
For the new edition Kosmos has made five changes (listed by Pedro Soto on the BGG forums):

The games are:
