History Heroes - London
Get ready to meet 40 of the greatest characters in London's impressive history in this enlightening and engaging history quiz card game.
The game contains the people, who helped make and shape London both physically and culturally. Features characters, who built and, in some cases, destroyed London, such as Boudica, the Romans, Christopher Wren and Richard Rogers. These notable individuals rub shoulders with those who have given London its fantastic, rich cultural history, such as Shakespeare, Laurence Olivier, David Bowie, Mo Farah and Vivienne Westwood.
Each individual card introduces a different 'Londoner' and is beautifully illustrated, providing dates, flag of birthplace and seven memorable facts (including a Joker Fact). For example, did you know that during the Great Fire of London, Samuel Pepys dug a hole to protect his expensive Parmesan cheese?
Listen to a fact read from a card and guess the hero to win it.
How to play
The aim of this game is simple: win cards by guessing the person /knowing the facts. You can also use the images as clues and you can utilise the different levels of facts (colour coded) to vary difficulty level.
This allows people to play on varying levels within the same game so different ages and stages can be accommodated. Green facts are the easiest, orange are medium and red facts are most difficult.
The joker fact at the bottom of the card can also be use to devastate your opponents!Recommended age: 8 years +
