This is a good game - generally about 45 minutes. You have a strategy for getting round the London Underground System so you can tick off your destinations - but Hazard Cards and the dice can throw you way off. Sort of like life really. Never gets bad tempered like Monopoly, and short enough to have a good pace. Easy enough for kids once they know where their tube station destinations are. Great for foreign friends as a souvenir. Competitive enough without being cut throat.

if played right, this game is fantastic. the idea is to reach all your destination stations whilst hindering your opponents game as much as possible. The Hazzard cards you have to pick up to change lines make the game change constantly.

When your opponent has put down all their destination cards the phrase "CHANGE FOR THE SAKE OF CHANGING" is often said to stop them reaching their destination to finish the game so to win yourself is no longer important just stop your opponent winning.

We have been playing this game for the last 15 years with friends and never get bored of it.

My husband bought this for our 10 year old as he remembered enjoying it when he was young.

The game came in a durable tin (good for storing) but the board was a little warped when we got it out. My husband was a bit disappointed with this given the price paid (and he also reckons the old version he played covered a wider area - but that might just be his memory!)

The game itself is quite easy to pick up and we enjoy playing it quite regularly. You can't plan too far ahead as the change line cards send you off to the far reaches of the underground system - which can be frustrating. It's not always clear who will be the winner until the last throw of the dice which means that everyone stays involved throughout the time.

Our daughter is beginning to recognise the undergraound stations and places of interest which I think will make her next trip up to London more enjoyable!

We got this after having purchased the travel train game. The principle is the same visit 6 stations across the London network, the first back to their starting point wins. We have played this with our four year old son Josiah, who dores enjoy it. The only comment I would make is the board could do with being bigger to enable the stations to be more spread out or another way of distinguishing them more clearly. Because the counters are loose it is easy for them to get knocked or it not obvious which station you are at. We prefer the train game but this is a good second best.

I played this game a few years ago and was looking for a game for Christmas that could be played by just two people. This is the one! It's fun and brings out the competitive streak in even the most laid back of us. It helps you with your knowledge of London Underground stations and really gets you thinking strategically about how to beat the opposition. With facts about every station that you get to, there's a certain educational and historical value to the game too.
I'd recommend this game to anyone. We love it and never play just the one round!

This game has been revamped since the 70s, but is still great fun, just a bit more up to date. Great value, as it's enjoyable from age 7-70+.

I first played The London Game on an old board from the 70's (well it certainly looked that way though it did get a lot of use), and I bought a version of it in approx 1999. This was a good version as well, although the pieces that represent the players were not as useful as they were round, and I preferred the longer pieces from the 70's version as it was easier to see which line you were on. Still, the board was good, slightly updated for changes to the underground since the 70's version.

When I recently wanted a second set for a friend's house I thought this "Deluxe" version sounded appealing. It comes in a tin box, which is nice. The cards are of a low quality, and feel a bit cheap. Also, I had a few cards from a different game which confused me for a while.

Most annoyingly the board, which to get into the smaller box is now folded twice, was very warped. It was hard to play on due to the warping. The player pieces are diecast train carriages which is more imaginative, although I would prefer a narrower piece, these being oval in shape.

I emailed the company and complained and was sent replacement cards and a new (not warped) board.

In summary, the London Game is a fun, easy to pick-up, and short game for 2-6 players. You can claim it is educational as you get to learn the London underground layout, as well as Fun facts about various sites and places of interest around the capital.

This seems to be the only version available unless you go for a second-hand one. It is perfectly playable and the company, although putting out a slightly shoddy product, will at least sort you out if you chase them up.

The "London Underground" board game is, as always, a joy to play with family and friends. Get ready for the shouting and sighs! It's easy to understand, but massively complex in the number of possible outcomes. Numerically, it is impossible to repeat the game the same way twice -- so you never know what is coming or what to expect. Every move changes the play! What's not to like from a game that offers endless possibilities and one surprise after another. Plus, there's a sense of London that comes from playing the game. If you're fond of the City, then have fun with figuring out routes to and from all the places you are familiar with. Even if you're unfamiliar with the City layout, it's still fun! The pieces are durable, the tin is very good for storage. A quality purchase that gives top-flight home-gaming entertainment!
