As you all know, burying my head inside a book is something that I am found doing most evenings. So when I can combine my love for the Victorian Era in London with a board game - I am captivated! 

Nanty Narking // Phalanx Games

I am somebody who does not enjoy the works of Charles Dickens, but very much a fan of Arthur Conan Doyle and the adventures of Sherlock Holmes, but am fascinated by the era as a whole. So I was very keen to see what Nanty Narking by Phalanx Games has in store incorporating the tales of Victorian London. 

The board game is told to take the player through the lore, myths and legends that surround Victorian London. There are events that are built into the game system, which are tied to famous fictional and nonfictional characters inspiring you to join in the iconic stories that have arisen during London at that time. 

Players will be required to play through a series of cards that animates the story of the board game. Their characters (agents in this instance) will need to be put on the board map to progress. The aim of the game is to play a card and move on action based on that card. So will have story elements and require you to action, whereas other cards will be more game-mechanic-related (such as pick up another card). Easy peasy!

As this is a game for 2-4 players, this certainly is not a cooperative mission! Players will need to chase their in-game goal, whilst trying to prevent their opponents from achieving theirs. All players will have a different mission as at the start of the game, the 'personality' that is chosen by the player will provide particular victory conditions. The person who gets to theirs first is the winner.

Will you be bumping into Oliver Twist and some chimney sweeps? Or helping Sherlock Holmes detect the Hounds of Baskerville? I am looking forward to seeing what Victorian stories are incorporated into the board game.

What is your favourite story from the Victorian Era?
