Midwest GameFest 2022

Mars Cup Skyship Race

The Great Race or... Those Magnificent Martians in Their Superb Skyships!

Almost 20 years ago, March 9, 1870: Thomas Edison, in an Aether Balloon of his own design, landed on Mars. To commemorate the 20th anniversary, a Great Martian Jubilee is planned. All of the great Earth powers will have a pavilion as well some of the more advanced indigenous tribes. Exhibitions of culture and industry amongst the Martian colonies as well as the latest scientific discoveries will be presented. An Amusement area will provide entertainments to amuse young and old. In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to dine on the finest cuisine from Mars as well as delicacies from Venus, Mercury and Earth!

And finally, on the Anniversary of the GREAT DAY, there will be a Skyship Race! France, Belgium, Germany, Great Britain, the United States, Russia, and Japan all will compete for the MARS CUP! Don't miss this aerial chariot race.

Giant skyships fly through the air over the sands of Mars all day Saturday! Can you steer your Skyship to victory thru the Martian skies?

But even at the Jubilee, the Great Game continues. No, not the race, the endless struggle behind the scenes by the empires and kingdoms of Earth. There are stories, and rumors, that ships have been modified, and secret agreements have been made, just to ensure victory.

What will happen in the skies above the red planet at the Jubilee?
