Livingstone is the 3rd game in Playroom Entertainment's Gateway Games™ Line:
"The Gateway Games™ Line contains crossover strategy games easy enough for the family to enjoy but deep enough to keep any “gamer” on their toes. The games in this line can quickly and easily be taught to someone who doesn’t regularly play strategy games. All games in the line take only a few minutes to learn, play in about 35 minutes, and have high-quality, attractive physical components such as wooden pieces and linen-finished gameboards. The Gateway Games™ emphasize strategic planning and decision making, and have unique, historical themes."
The series so far: Portobello Market (2007), and Ilium (2008). Now Livingstone joins them “with the same level of strategic game play, elegant artwork and all of the high quality that players have come to expect from European style games."
