Guy Ritchie‘s Sherlock Holmes is about to hit theaters and to kickoff the fun Facebook has started a game called 221b — sound too technical? Don’t click away just yet, this game is for two and it’s a lot more exciting than you think. This is just one of the many ways that Warner Bros is marketing the film, and allowing movie goers to get involved with the story.
Find out how to play…
According to ComingSoon.net, 221b is a two-player game immersing you into the world of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson. The game takes you through the events leading up to the very first scene of the new Sherlock Holmes film.

You can play with a friend or by yourself, as either Holmes or Watson (a quiz will determine which character suits you best). Like in the stories, you and a friend (or you alone) will investigate crimes, put the clues together and solve the mysteries. The mystery solving is what naturally allows you to win the game. Do that and your reputation as a detective will be golden and you’ll end up being the envy of Scotland Yard (which is the goal). Does this sound fun? Go on and give it a try, no one has to know.
Don’t forget that Sherlock Holmes hits theaters this holiday season, December 25, 2009.
