2013 Symposium Games

The Games are certainly the signature event of the Steampunk Empire Symposium, a civilized contest between many regional airships and steampunk groups to win the glory, the Symposium Trophy, and four badges to next year’s convention.

For the 2013 Symposium Games, to keep the contests creative and fresh, all competing airships must submit and facilitate a challenge in order to be a part of the Games. Each airship, obviously, can not compete in their own challenge, and impartial judges will allocated, but it is the responsibility of the challenging airship to formulate detailed rules of the game and provide any necessary equipment.

Due to the more complex (and jolly well more fun) nature of the ever expanding Symposium Games, formal registration of games and airships must be complete by midnight (EST) on Friday, March 15, 2013 . . . the Ides of March!
