Curiosities

At a time when social status was determined by one’s ability to delight and fascinate guests, the surest way to arouse interests was by accumulating an exceptional “cabinet of curiosities.” Odd zoological specimens, relics of unknown provenance, peculiar cultural artifacts and other ephemera from around the globe were acquired and displayed to spark conversation and speculation.

In Curiosities, a light card game of set collection, players attempt to assemble the best assortment of unusual--sometimes macabre--items by patronizing rare-object dealers while managing a supply of currencies unique to each broker.
