Second edition of Neil Gaiman’s A Study in Emerald revealed


Treefrog Games have announced the second edition of A Study In Emerald, the board game based on the short story by Neil Gaiman that brings the worlds of Sherlock Holmes and Cthulhu together.

This new second edition of the game is contains all new artwork by Ian O’Toole and Tatiana Kuzilova, boasting a “new streamlined set of rules” which may or may not make older fans of the game happy.

According to Treefrog on Facebook, the new version of the game “will hopefully help those folks who found the first version a tad complicated”.

“Although the game is simpler it still retains the feeling of paranoia from the first version. What I have done my best to do is remove inconsistencies and reduce the number of available actions to the minimum.”

“If all goes to plan,” say Treefrog, “then the game will be ready to ship from our German printers in September.”
