Salute 2013: Mars


Victorian SF was on show at Salute including a scrumptious Mars display game. Thanks to the gentleman who held up the backdrop. A Japanese colonial city is under attack by High Martians, or maybe it's the other way around.


Japanese and Martian Flyers clash over a Martian canal.


Japanese gunboat on the canal. Note the walker.







Martian flyers attack a Japanese ariel round ship. Underneath comes the Royal Navy - Hurrah!





Martian barbarians prepare to defend their cliff homes.

  1. Wow that looks a great game and reminds me a lot of Space 1889.

    1. Yes, it's the Martian Canal trope (if that's quite the right word). This theme is very powerful. I've used it in my storming stories although neither has been set on Mars - yet.

  3. I missed this one – I swear I went to a different show than everyone else, or I walked round with my eyes closed!

  4. I liked this game as well. It was the type of game I would like to do at a show sometime.

    1. It was great Clint. I love all this steampunk/ Burroughs' stuff.
