Don’t forget that The Casebook draw entries close tonight (October 31st at 23:59 GMT) so be sure to have solved all the cases to be in with a chance of winning one of six signed (by Benedict and Martin on bookplate) casebooks.
The games will remain on the website after the draw entries close so you can continue to play just for fun.
You’ll need to use your powers of deduction to solve case 4 of The Casebook.
Working under pressure is never easy, have you got what it takes to solve case 3 of The Casebook?
Hey there. This is not directly about Sherlock, but about the Casebook game on your site. It sounds really fun, but unfortunately, when I click on the "solve the case" for the first case, nothing but a black box appears. Do we need a certain browser to play the game?
UPDATE: This issue should now be fixed. Clear your cache and reload.
We’re currently encountering an issue with Firefox 16 - since the last browser update the software seems to cache content differently. If you leave the black box open the game WILL load eventually within it - we recommend waiting a couple of minutes and then clicking within the box itself, the game start screen will then pop up. This issue doesn’t occur in other browsers though, so if you have a different one you can play there, and thanks to the login your progress will saved across them, so you’ll be able to play in Firefox when we have solved the issue. Alternatively, you can right click the ‘Solve Now’ button in Firefox and chose to open the link in a new tab, and the game will load instantly.
