The Victorian Christmas Rituals: A Steampunk Perspective

Game review: Choson, a thematic card-driven game for two to four players set in a Japanese steampunk universe. The Kory? dynasty is now defunct, replaced by the Chos?n dynasty founded by General Yi. Unfortunately, soon after its founding, intriguers nicknamed the “Watchers“, appeared all over the realm of Chos?n. And ever since, feud and disorder has sprouted everywhere. But this time, instead of the usual political contests and sneaky manipulations, armed warfare has become the rule. The influence of the “Watchers“ on some families has grown very strong and some whisper they have such extraordinary powers as allowing them to travel through time.

Game - Koryo, a card game for 2 to 4 players based in an uchronian and politico-steampunk universe. Kory? is a very smart game, quick to play (10 min) with only 8 turns, interactive and with innovative game mechanics making it very enjoyable and highly addictive.

No one suspected what--or who--they would find aboard that suspiciously empty train.

Read - The Steampunk Bible by Jeff Vandermeer, Steampunk—a grafting of Victorian aesthetic and punk rock attitude onto various forms of science-fiction culture—is a phenomenon that has come to influence film, literature, art, music, fashion, and more. Its adherents celebrate the inventor as an artist and hero, re-envisioning and crafting retro technologies including antiquated airships and robots. A burgeoning DIY community has brought a distinctive Victorian-fantasy style to their crafts and art. Steampunk evokes a sense of adventure and discovery, and embraces extinct technologies as a way of talking about the future. This ultimate manual will appeal to aficionados and novices alike as author Jeff VanderMeer takes the reader on a wild ride through the clockwork corridors of Steampunk history.
