Sleuth: Find the Missing Tasmanian Gems


Sleuth is the timeless classic deduction game by legendary designer Sid Sackson. Players are searching for a missing gem, one of the 36 Gem cards which has been removed and hidden before the start of the game. The 35 remaining Gem cards are distributed among the Players, with extras publicly displayed. Using logic and deduction, and cards from the Search deck, players question their opponents for evidence as they race to win by being the first to identify the missing gem.


Many editions of Sleuth have been produced over the past 50+ years since its first release in 1971. Eagle-Gryphon Games has taken a fresh approach to the art for this 2024 edition by commissioning Jake Seven, an American-born artist and art instructor who lives and works in Hobart, Tasmania. His art includes many public and private large-scale murals (see JakeSeven.com). About the art for Sleuth, Jake says: “Tasmania’s unique natural landscape is a confluence of complex geology, which has shaped its wide range of biodiversity. Over hundreds of millions of years, Tasmania has been shaped, sculpted, and molded by sea levels rising and falling, leaving a myriad of mineral rock deposits, several large magmatic intrusions, and resulting eventually in the glacial formation of most of its many dramatic peaks and valleys. The colors of Tasmania are vibrant and diverse, rich in tone, and bold in presence. The Gems represented in Sleuth are Agates, Topaz, and Sapphires. They can all be found in Tasmania’s diverse terrain, and they act as beacons of Tasmania’s exciting and tumultuous geological history. The box cover image and its gemstones display Tasmania’s mysterious and complex natural history, eccentric ecology, radiant colors, and dramatic environment.”
