Unlike the so-called review by so-called "Jack London," this is a real review by a real person who bought and played the game with his family--not marketing copy by a hired shill. (Read that review closely. Who starts a review of a board game with a quotation by Samuel Johnson? That and the reviewer's name are just the first of many clues.)

I am an American on vacation in London with my family shortly before the 2012 Olympics. (Me, my wife, & our kids aged 13, 10, and 7.) Yesterday we bought this game in the Churchill War Rooms gift shop and played it later that evening in our rented flat.

First things first: is the game fun? Yes, it is. All five of us enjoyed playing it. It took about an hour. The game play is well-thought-out and is not an obvious copy of any other game I've played before. It has a good combination of luck and skill. Enough luck that our seven-year-old could participate and have fun and even have a chance of winning (although she didn't--my wife did), but enough skill to keep the older players engaged in planning their next moves. Game play involves moving your piece around a map of London, picking up cards at red British letter boxes before your opponents reach them, and playing the cards to move another piece around the outer edge of the board, which is a timeline of London's history. Each card depicts an important event, person, or place in London.

This brings is to the next question: is the game educational? Yes, definitely. But I recommend having a grown-up at the table make a point of reading each card's short description out loud as it is played. That way the kids might pick up and remember a fact or two about London's history. The map is a fun way to learn the layout of the city.

What a good game! The rules are easy to understand, the practcality of playing is very straightforward and perhaps best of all it doesn't go on for hours and hours. We found it quite addictive and one of the few board games I've played where we've played three or four goes at once. My family's knowledge of London and its' history is quite good but even we were finding out new stuff and we loved deploying the fog card! In all great value. As someone once said 'Good game'.

I purchased this as I was looking for the original 80's London Game. Unfortunately the product descriptions don't provide quite enough information.

The game is a bit too comprehensive and I found my self getting bored re reading the instructions to try and understand the dynamics of the game. By the time we had fully (I think)understood my 10 and 12 year olds were thoroughly bored.
