1888 Whitechapel District, London. 00:25am.
As usual too much fog surrounds the British Kingdom.
Then a shout… As another victim falls prey to the notorious Jack the Ripper, as he has been dubbed.
Finally, not being able to endure this any longer 8 investigators come together to try and uncover the mystery of Mr. Jack. The question is: Can they uncover him before he strikes again, even when one amongst them really is the Assassin?
2 players with 8 characters. One of them runs a race against time, to uncover the truth of who the Ripper really is. While the other works to escape and deceive everyone from the fact that he is the shadow in the night that strangles these far from innocent women. With only one accusation throughout the whole game players need to pay close attention to who is in the shadows and who remains in the light.
Mr. Jack is a game published and edited by Hurrican Games and distributed solely in the USA by Asmodee editions LLC.

|My wife and I were looking for a quick and simple game to balance out our collection. Mr. Jack has enormous replayability, can be played multiple times in an hour, but still provides enough opportunity for strategy and a quality experience. Great game for non-gamers. Enjoy!
|This game can be played in half an hour, and you'll like that as both players want to play again. Mr. Jack is very well-balanced and well-planned, allowing a surprising amount of replayability, and as much subterfuge and deduction as players are willing to administer. Any tweaks to the original (such as the expansion) seem to unbalance the elegant simplicity of the setup. The theme here is an added bonus, as is the fine quality of the board and pieces.
|This is a great 2-player deduction game. I particularly like the way the special powers of the characters interacta and keep the game fresh - and of course it feels great to make a narrow escape as Jack! When you win, you feel that it was not just chance, but actually due to your effort and skill.
|Mr. Jack is a wonderful 2 player deduction game. There's absolutely no luck involved so logic and strategy are a necessity. A very quick and very fun game that we tend to play a few times in a row.
|Great deduction game for 2 players. I prefer Mr Jack and my wife prefers scotland yard....makes it easy when we both always play our sides :)
