Some comments to my recent Top 10 "Cyberpunk" Games geeklist requested a list on Steampunk games. I am familar with several and believe Planet Steam are Mission: Red Planet good games in this genre. I have played some of the miniatures-based games, as well. What are the best? Which ones really capture the theme? I appreciate your recommendations and opinions.

Thanks.

As a Warmachine spin-off of sorts - what about Grind?

Know about "family" but what do the people who play these games think about them? Real purpose for the list . . .

Thanks.

The steampunk theme is completely pasted on, but Girl Genius: The Works is a good game.

Definitely a wacky and amazing game. Card drafting, engine building, dice rolling madness.

Definitely this. And the theme isn't just pasted on -- it's really a core part of the game. And it scales well from 2-8 players.

Steam Works is a nice one, build bigger, better machines than your opponents.

Strife: Shadows & Steam

I cannot understand how this game continues to stay off the radar. It's a great perfect information game. The artwork is phenomenal.
