This year is rather important to London and the UK – we had the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, and we also have the 2012 Olympics. To celebrate that there are a number of items available to show the Pride of London including a stunning board game of the history of London.
Stunning board graphics feature a time track with 2000 years of London’s history (from the Romans to the Olympics!) as well as a hand-painted map with all of London’s most famous buildings.
The game is a collaboration with The Museum of London, home to the finest collection of London’s historical artefacts. The cards have pictures of all of the city’s most famous characters as well as its events and buildings.
The object of the game is to be the first player to reach the last step, which is The 2012 Olympic Games.
There are 60 cards in the game box, each with a different meaning and each containing historical facts, so it’s also a learning experience.
This is a family game for 2-6 players and is very simple to learn. It costs £24.99 and is a fun game to play, whether you know anything about London or not.
