A litle unusal Game in that thee are only 18 squares - each one with an action. Basically lists the sights in London as the were in 1825. Artwork is not as sharp as n same games of the period. The case has a picture from the game on it, soo the cases are not all the same - we have seen three different scences used - so presumably a whole sheet was cut up and all the scences used rather than on chosen to represent the game.

Condition / Sheet no damage, some use so odd small marks / Slipcase - A little worn at the edges but otherwise good-
