VPG Launches First Kickstarter with ‘I Say, Holmes!’

I Say, Holmes! PreviewVictory Point Games has launched their first Kickstarter project and the company is looking to produce an updated edition of I Say, Holmes! Feel free to check out the TGG review of the original release right here and keep in mind the biggest critique of the game was component quality; something the project will certainly address. Currently you can pledge support and receive a copy of the game for $35.

From VPG:

Sherlock Holmes and his companions are at your disposal as you try to catch the most notorious villains of Victorian era London.

The Game is Afoot and it’s up to you to solve the case!

  1. Thanks, Jeff. This is our very fist Kickstarter and much to our shock and with yours and your audience’s help, we managed to fully-fund in only 22 hours — less than one day! Now we’re figuring out what additional goodies we can put out there, but keep watching that Kickstarter because we’ll be supporting our backers with the best that The Little Game Company that Could can offer.

  2. Good to see the project got started with a bang! I completely understand going the KS route with this particular title for a variety of reasons. Looks like you’ve really put a lot of polish on the second edition.

  3. Just a quick update as the I Say Holmes project is in its home stretch (I was tempted to type “Holmes” stretch heh heh) with about 27 hours to go and has currently raised over $40k. 🙂
