London, 1901: Shopkeepers gather at the world-famous Portobello Market to set up their stalls in the most lucrative places. Build your shops in the most profitable districts to draw in the wealthiest customers and snatch your opponents’ best lanes. The Bobby determines where stalls can be built, but with a little effort you can put the Bobby where you want it to be!

|Portobello Market is an abstract area control game. It is a bit more complex than the typical gameway games (e.g. Ticket To Ride), but also provides a richer experience. I particularly like the many ways you can prevent other players from scoring, which becomes a major part of the game once the basics are understood by everyone.
