From Mayfair Games:
In 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. Will you favor 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 the how to employ the many paupers of the city. Almost 250 years of the city’s history is recreated in this relatively simple game that can be
played by 2 – 4 players, age 13+ easily within ninety minutes. Other Mayfair Games titles by Wallace include Steam, Toledo, La Strada, and Rise of Empires.
