Renegade Game Studios has announced a new edition of World’s Fair 1893 and it’s available for pre-order now!
The World’s Fair of 1893 in Chicago was a spectacular international exhibition that showcased many great achievements in science, technology, culture, and entertainment. In World’s Fair 1893, you can travel back in time and assume the role of the event organizers. You will compete against other players to gain influence and obtain the grandest exhibits to be displayed at the fair.
New Edition? What’s new?
The World’s Fair was an event that demonstrated what was considered cultural and technological entertainment; however, racism and segregation were an overarching reality and African Americans and Indigenous Americans were excluded. The NEW Amazon Exclusive edition of World’s Fair 1893, which is currently available for pre-order, now includes a new group of diverse playable historical figures.
In 1893, it had been less than 30 years since the abolition of slavery in the United States. Despite the progress of the African Americans, they were not given the opportunity to share their own accomplishments at the World’s Fair. These seven new playable historical figures were instrumental in giving African Americans and other disenfranchised groups the chance to highlight their progress and achievements.

Renegade Game Studios worked with historical consultant Jade R. Rogers – the founder of The House of Afros, Capes & Curls. The new rulebook includes a historical note she wrote about race at the World’s Fair in 1893.
