Dr Nostromo's Version 1.2 (Initial Release) Dr Nostromo's Place

This is a completely rebuilt, easy-to-play, Vassal interface for the classic detective card game Sleuth designed by Sid Sackson in 1971. It's a mystery card game where players interrogate other players, using search cards, in an attempt to find a stolen gem.

This version also allows a host to add a phantom player to allow 2 players to play and/or make the game more challenging with an extra player.

If you are unfamiliar with the original game, you will find the "Official Sleuth Rules" included as a Help file.

If you are familiar with the original game, read the "How to Use Vassal Sleuth" Help file.
