The World's Fair gathers the greatest minds around the globe and gives them an opportunity to show business moguls and upstarts alike their genius. In Kings of Air and Steam: World's Fair you are one of those business tycoons that wants to get the latest gizmo that will boost your productivity...but at what opportunity costs?Tasty Minstrel Games has launched a Kickstarter for the first expansion of Kings of Air and Steam called World's Fair. Kings of Air and Steam is a programmed movement pick up and deliver game designed by Scott Almes who also designed the Tiny Epic line of games. At the beginning of a round players program their airships movement for 4 turns, then they reveal one of the four cards that dictate their turn order and movement options; after moving they can take one of a number of different actions. Kings of Air and Steam: World's Fair adds new Technology Cards to the game as well as two new teams and 4 new characters. The technology cards are drafted at the start of the game and must be purchased with an action as well as a cost indicated on the card. These cards will add some surprise and more steampunk flavor to the game with the gadgets and gizmos on them. The two new teams will allow the full complement of 7 players to have some variety in the teams in play each game and bring new and exciting unique abilities into play. Kings of Air and Steam: World's Fair is wonderfully illustrated by Josh Cappel who also did the artwork on the base game and can be found on Kickstarter here. If you don't own the base game and are interested in the expansion there is a pledge level for both so head on over to Kickstarter and check out the latest in the TMG line of games.
