No one would have believed, in the last years of the 19th century...




The Martians have landed! The rout of civilization has begun!

London at the turn of the 20th century. You are the mass population fighting for survival in the face of terrible odds. If you are to survive you must work together, but to escape you might just have to throw a few unfortunates to the fighting machines! It's dog eat dog as players vie for the ever decreasing safe zones and routes out of the city, dodging Martians and backstabbing rivals and trying to take down those pesky TRIPODS! whenever the opportunity allows. On a board that's always changing, with an uncertain chain of events, TRIPODS! is never quite the same experience twice.

Check out a short unboxing and play-through video: the full, annotated play-through is on our website.

Why buy this?

I first played this game at Asylum the Steampunk festival in Lincoln earlier this year and fell in love with the idea and the game mechanics."

  • The heat ray!
  • Game board transforms differently each game.
  • Double crossing and betrayal encouraged.


  • This game contains laser cut components. Laser cut items will have a slight amount of soot around the edges, which can easily be wiped off; and will have a campfire smell for about a week after you open them.
