Please join me in welcoming guest boardgame reviewer Jimmy Castelli, with his excellent and informative look at Martin Wallace’s London.
London lies devastated after the Great Fire of 1666. This is your opportunity to build a new city on the ashes of the old. It is up to you how you employ the talents of the people of London to this end. Will you favour the business classes, who will earn you money? Or would you prefer to spend more money than you can rightly afford on grand monuments and sumptuous palaces? You must also deal with the problem of rising poverty and how to employ the many paupers of the city.
Throughout the game you will be forced to make tough decisions; to achieve one aim you must sacrifice another, which may open an opportunity for a competitor.
If you enjoy this review, stay tuned for future Castelli Reviews!
