my son loves the underground and all things Tube related so we bought this. basically you have to travel round the underground map to visit the stations you received in the dealt hand at the beginning. our only gripe is that there are only a few stations that you have to visit - the traditional tourist ones. there is a tiny bit of info about these stations and there are hazard cards to delay you when changing lines, but it seems to us, and my 8 yr old said so himself, that most of the stations on the board are unused and it seems such a wasted opportunity. why not have cards for Canada Wharf, or Seven Sisters or Greenwich, or Cutty Sark for Maritime, and give the history of some of these names, or interesting facts about them. Temple, Blackfriars, Mile End, all have interesting stories, and more stations would make the game a little more interesting and involved. we're fed up visiting Victoria, The Oval and South Kensington at least once a game!

Interesting board game - has more luck involved than some games. Moves depend on the throw of a dice and potentially on a card which can be very good news or very bad news depending on circumstances. Makers have slipped up slightly on the colours used for the stations - not all station cards are coloured to match their line which can be frustrating but overall a fun family game.

Good idea, poorly executed with some fundamental flaws. The tokens are too large and should have been tall rather than long because they obscure the board text and the images underneath them especially when more than one player occupies the same station. You have to remember which station each player started from because this is where they must end up in order to win. You also have to remember which line you and your opponents are on otherwise its very easy to cheat or forget when changing lines. A visual aid, card or token would have solved these last two points. Very surprised these issues haven't been addressed and resolved in the years the game has been around.

I am presently 'looking forward'(?!) to Christmas With My Family, a collection of people who don't get on under ordinary circumstances, never mind an alcohol-fuelled festive occasion. I do have a certain sense of dread, there's no denying that. Although, of course, it was my bright idea to get everyone together in the first place. And not just together either, but together in a rented cottage miles from anywhere. Miles from the nearest hospital, miles from the nearest police station... I must have had one too many over the eight myself the day I came up with THAT one. It has the potential to get rather nasty, and in a big way. Hence, I have been trying to find enough activities to keep my guests entertained and to, hopefully, distract them from the fact that they'd doubtless much rather prefer to be murdering each other. Or me for that matter, for coming up with such a ridiculous idea in the first place.

'The London Board Game' only allows 2 - 6 players to enjoy a bit of a whiz around the Underground but it is a lot of fun, so that would at least be a start. Well, I say 'fun'... it is if you're winning - and, if you are, then you probably won't be for very long. Using competitive games to try to keep the peace between a whole collection of warring factions might sound a little crazy but, the way I figure it, if they're arguing about a board game they might just forget about all those other grievances that families everywhere seem to collect over the years. No? Oh well, that must just be mine then. Actually you know, that's a very good point. This can be a very competitive game, full of dirty tricks and abject deviousness. Playing this game might have the same sort of incendiary effect on my family as the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand had on Europe in 1914... .

I bought this to play with my son's family on Boxing day. It is a very good game.
My only criticisms are:-
1. The board could be a bit bigger a) because the stations are too close together for two travellers.
b) because when a station has been closed it is not easy to see which station has
been marked by a counter.
2. A picture of the place being visited on the card and on the board would make it easier to find.

These were our greatest problems but we did enjoy playing it and the grandchildren - 10 and 13 loved it.

My 9 year old nephew loves board games, this one is no exception. The only thing which stops this from being a five star is the fact that if you are not familiar with the names of the underground stations it does take a couple of games of scanning the board for the station you need which does hold things up a bit. However once familiarity takes hold it's great fun.
