Game of Victorian Manners

Think you know how to be a victorian? Then try this interactive game in which you try to negotiate your way through the tricky world of Victorian manners. Its wierdly fun.

I would never have made it in the Victorian world.

Soldiers of the Queen British Military Photograph Site

The Soldiers of the Queen site is a great resource for anyone who games with Victorian Era miniature soldiers. The site is stuffed full of photographs from the era. A must see.

Aeronef Logs

Similar in spirit to the late, lamented Space:1889 cloudships rules, Aeronef is about Victorian era armored flying gunships. There are some outstanding ships’ logs for the game here.

Victorian Gentlemen’s Clubs

For the Victorian and Colonial miniature wargamer, here is a site with names of, and information about 19th Century Gentlemen’s clubs. Another site about these exclusive clubs is here.

Stroll The White City

The Chicago Tribune has a gallery with some long-forgotten photographs of the Chicago Exposition of 1893. It’s a visual treat for Victorian era enthusiasts. And while you’re at it, I highly recommend the book “Devil In The White City,” a true-crime story about a serial murderer n Chicago at the time of the fair.
