Santa's Lap: Soho! A Most Peculiar Game

Santa's Lap: Soho! A Most Peculiar Game

Every day until Christmas we will be pointing you in the direction of a London Christmas gift that (with a bit of luck) you won’t already have on your list. Climb up onto our collective lap and we’ll see what we can move from our sack to your stockings…

If you lack the 'Master’s Degree in City politics' required to play the City of London Board Game, how about a more esoteric, meandering, booze-fuelled challenge in the shape of Soho! - the most peculiar board game from those nice people at Smoke?

We featured it in Santa's Lap last year but since Smoke say it's still available, we couldn't resist punting it your way again. It's still £15 p&p and if you get moving quick, you can probably get it in time for Christmas.

While you're placing your order, stick some back issues of Smoke in your sack too.

More Londony Christmas gift ideas are compiled here.

I've played this! It is rather complicated, but once you've got the hang of it it gets quicker. The text on the cards is also very funny, meaning that even if you're not having much luck with the dice, there's plenty to keep things entertaining.
