Railways & Respectability
London, 18XX "I have seen the future and it is the railways!"
It is the Prince Regent's Birthday, and celebrations are underway. In honour of the Royal event, Lady Sybil Ffolkes-Porter is hosting a dance at her extensive London home.
It is clear to everyone that railways are the future. Parliament has declared that new routes are needed between London and Bristol, and London and Brighton.
The party gives a chance for interested parties to assemble, and offers an excellent opportunity to discuss the building of Railways across the English countryside. However some members of Society consider Romance and Respectability to be considerably more important.
Present at the dance are a number of eligible young ladies and potential suitors. Lady Sybil is hoping that the evening will result in a number of satisfactory "understandings". There should be ample opportunity for discussing both Romance and Railways.
This game includes (simple) dancing, which will be taught at the start of the game. Actual dancing is not obligatory – there is a “non-physical alternative” – but the dances (a.k.a. “unchaperoned opportunities”) are integral to the game.
