Another okay Knizia entry in the Gryphon Games series
May 31, 2012

Looting London is one of the weaker games in the Gryphon Games bookshelf series, but it's still a decent game. It's not a bad game, but it didn't really grab me either.

Players are detectives trying to catch a thief in London who has made off with five rare treasures like the crown jewels. It has Ticket-to-Ride-like mechanics: draw and collect cards or play sets of cards to claim point scoring evidence tiles. There are also some typical Knizia scoring twists that add tension and fun to the game, particularly the notion that tiles of one of the five cases will score zero points at the end of the game. But with too many players it can start becoming chaotic, so it's probably best with 2 or 3. The theme is thin, which won't bother those who appreciate the clever scoring that Knizia can offer, and the solid components - the game-play is interesting enough to make it a decent filler.

Families brought up on staples like Uno will find the gameplay quite innovative and rewarding, but experienced eurogamers might find that it doesn't quite match the quality they've seen in other games. This thinly themed detective game has some Ticket-to-Ride type mechanics and clever Knizia elements that aren't particularly memorable, but still offer some interesting game-play.
