London Markets arrived!

Just arrived at home: my personal copies of “London Markets”. And i can say, it looks great!
It has been released before at the same publisher as “Dschunke” but got a very strong refresh (not only thematicaly).
Now the right timing gets very important for the contracts and the game is very well balanced with all numbers of players.
I’m looking forward on the response and i will take it to the Oberhof game event for the very first matches.
