Games Set in London

The next best thing to visiting the great city of London is playing a game set there.

From its earliest days as the city of Londinium in the Roman Empire, London has always been one of the most important cities in greater Europe. From trade to learning to culture, London’s influence is hard to overstate.

The long history of the city, as well as some of its best known institutions and people make the city a natural setting for many board games. Here is a sampling of games set in one of my favorite cities in the world.

Old London Bridge

Play cards to help reconstruct the best part of the (new) Old London Bridge after the 1136 fire.

About the author

Tom Franklin

By day, I'm a mild-mannered IT Manager with a slight attitude. By night I play guitar & celtic bouzouki, board games, and watch British TV. I love abstracts, co-ops, worker placement and tile-laying games. Basically, any deep game with lots of interesting choices. 

You can find my middle grade book, The Pterrible Pteranodon, at your favorite online bookstore.

And despite being a DM, I have an inherent dislike of six-sided dice.
