Product Description
Get ready...You are MP and famous diarist Samuel Pepys, living in London in the 1660s. Little do you suspect that you are about to witness this ancient city be thrown into chaos by The Great Fire of 1666! It's sweltering! Top Tips from experts: - Take the fire seriously. The Lord Mayor doesn't seem bothered by the blaze, but be warned - it's burning 100 houses an hour! - Don't rely on the fire brigade - there isn't one. You and your neighbours will have to fight the flames yourselves. - To stop the blaze spreading, create firebreaks - by blowing up houses in the path of the fire! - When it's all over, rebuild London's houses out of stone, not wood.
