The World's Fair of 1893 in Chicago was a spectacular international exhibition that showcased many great achievements in science, technology, culture, and entertainment. In the Mensa Select Award-winning World's Fair 1893, you can travel back in time and assume the role of the event organizers. You will compete against other players to gain influence and obtain the grandest exhibits to be displayed at the fair.

A NEW EDITION? WHAT'S NEW?

The World's Fair was an event that demonstrated what was at the time considered cultural and technological entertainment; however, racism and segregation were an overarching reality and African Americans and Indigenous Americans were excluded. The New edition of World's Fair 1893 now includes a new group of diverse playable historical figures.

When our team was working on this new edition, we worked with historical consultant Jade R. Rogers - the founder of The House of Afros, Capes & Curls. You can check out her website at www.jaderrogers.com. The new rulebook includes a historical note she wrote about race at the World's Fair in 1893.

In 1893, it had been less than 30 years since the abolition of slavery in the United States. Despite the progress of the African Americans, they were not given the opportunity to share their own accomplishments at the World's Fair. These five new playable historical figures were instrumental in giving African Americans and other disenfranchised groups the chance to highlight their progress and achievements.

  • Ida B. Wells

  • Frederick Douglass

  • Irvine Garland Penn

  • Fannie Barrier Williams

  • Susan B. Anthony

 

"World's Fair 1893 is an elegantly designed game of area control and set collection that is certain to delight the masses. This has quickly risen to be a favorite for me to introduce people to our hobby because of its simplistic rules and complex mastery. Brilliant. Elegant. Fluid. World's Fair 1893 is a game that everyone should have in their collection." — Brandon Nall, Brawling Brothers podcast

"This is a wonderful, fast-playing, practically a filler just slightly bigger than a filler. It's a really quick game, which you can tell because I actually made it through an entire runthrough, which normally I don't do. It's just so fast and so fluid, and fun from start to finish." - Richard Hamm, Rahdo Runs Through
