    Quiz questions that I did were interesting and suitably challenging. But only managed 6 in 75 mins available to me. Will look forward to completing the rest another day. Probably quicker with a team to help. Would like more than two weeks to complete the game as I'm not based in London. All in all, a novel experience and a good way to get to know unusual parts of the city.
