London: The Board Game is made by Sophisticated Games and distributed in the UK by Esdevium
The object of the game is to travel around the board’s timeline, from the Romans through to the London 2012 games.
Events include the works of William Shakespeare, The Great Fire of London and the Royal Wedding. The first to reach the end of the timeline wins the game. It’s playable by people aged eight and over, for two to six players.
The game was designed to “encapsulate all that the city represents to both its residents and its visitors” and was developed in conjunction with The Museum of London at the Barbican.
The box contains a board, a pack of illustrated cards, 17 red letterboxes, and 12 wooden movers.
Sophisticated Games is known for its long-running series of games based on Lord of the Rings, as well as the Ingenious board game.
