This is a modern day adventure which starts in a rather sleazy flat in London. You are male, single, on the dole, but very ambitious, and your goal is to attain Hampstead.

Written by two eccentric tea cosies, in which nest a pair of plebicolists, this is worth delving into.

There is a well produced booklet, full of photos and information, some of which is false, some correct, and some downright fatuous, but worth reading nevertheless. I'd love to tell you more about the game itself, but I fear I would spoil your enjoyment.

No matter how hard I tried, I found no fault, no mistakes in grammar or spelling, and no illogical responses. The latter especially irritate me. Like when the description comes up "you are in a dark/light/small/large room", the response "I see no room to search/examine"!

A lot of thought has gone into this game. The result is one of the best adventures I have played. Maybe a bit pricey, but, if you can afford it, it's a must. Super!
