A brand new edition of a popular classic, London will appeal to the strategic thinker among board game fans. Tasked with rebuilding London in the decades following the great fire, players will juggle building requirements, bank loans and poverty as they strive to realise their vision for the city.

The game features a unique mechanic of playing cards to develop the city, then ‘running’ the city by taking all the card actions simultaneously. Players will have to repay all their loans before the game ends, but only need to worry about how much poverty they’re creating relative to the other players.

Publisher Review

"London is still a phenomenal game, it's still one of my favorite card games of all time, still one of my favorite engine building games of all time, and for my money I'd say it's even better now with these particular new additions." - Rahdo Runs Through "A few years ago London was in my top 20 of all time, at around 15 or 16. This would push it up the list for sure. . . . It's a little more strategic, a little more interactive . . . a definite improvement." - Drive Thru Review "This game is fantastic . . . If you like card driven games, if you like tableau builders . . . definitely check this one out. It's really cool." - Every Night is Game Night "A really great re-doing of the game" - Tom Vasal, The Dice Tower "You're going to get a lot of plays from [London]..." - Drive Thru Review "I can't wait to play again." - Rolling Dice & Taking Names "I've played it three times now and really liked it." - The Board Game Show "I can't shake the feeling of this game being (or becoming) a classic. It may already be a classic in the minds of Martin Wallace fans, of which I am one." - The Board Game Show "The improvements they made certainly made it better." - Drive Thru Review ..".if you've any interest at all in a Martin Wallace design, or want to play a fascinating game that's great thematically and practically, look no further. London has it all." - Geeks Under Grace "Couple approved! Just as much fun with two as it is with three or four." - Married with Board Games "If you like Martin Wallace games, this is as Martin Wallacey as the best of them. If that's what you came here for, then boom, be satiated dear reader, the heart of London remains." - Board Game Quest
