The Dashing Set
The Dashing Set is a card game for the early 20th Century, where one competes to gather the most influential group from the dazzling and beautiful things of the 1920's and become the pinnacle of the scene; the origin of the media darlings. Capturing the heyday of New York and London between the wars and centring around the worlds of The Bloomsbury Group and the Bright Young Things. Battling the ups and downs of social etiquette, pauperism, Bedlam and laudanum to triumph as the most Dashing Set there is.
Man, I'm telling you. It's a lopazoo
- Do you know the power of Proust's macaroon?
- Do you know what happened at 51 Gordon Square?
- Have you seen the inscription of R.Mutt 1917?
- Do you know what R.U.R. stands for?
- What would happen if Tesla rubbed shoulders with Bartók?
If you can answer these questions, then maybe you are hoi oligoi after all. If that is the case, you will enjoy a new card game for the elite. A game designed for the minority. No more 'fun for all the family' unless you hail from a family of genius eccentrics.
It is time to be proud of your dazzling intelligence and wide historical and cultural knowledge.
I warn anyone interested though that it is neither historically accurate nor fun for all the family. I set out to create one of the most snobbish of games and I do not yet know that I have succeeded.
