Two horrific murders were committed in London at the end of 1888. The victims were Emma Smith and Martha Tabram. That autumn, for three months, Whitechapel, in East London, was terrorized by a serial killer who came to be known as Jack the Ripper.
After committing five more murders, he suddenly stopped. Scotland Yard never solved the case and, to this day, the identity of the killer remains a mystery.
The players will personify some of the main characters of this horrific drama: they will be investigators, suspects, or both. One of them will secretly be Jack the Ripper and will have to escape, alone or with some help before being revealed and arrested.
London 1888 does not always rely on the same strategy in order to win. Roleplaying and bluffing is a very important part of the game. Every session is different and exciting.
