Of course, one of the oldest and definitely steampunkiest, is Sky Galleons of Mars! So far I have two copies and I'm working on getting more. (Don't call me, I'll call you.)

The artwork for this one is at least quasi-penny dreadful! (Phil Foglio is one of my favorite comic artists.)

I haven't played this one, but I've wanted to based on theme alone.

Additionally, I haven't really heard anything good about the game, but it's freakin' Captain Nemo and the Nautilus!!

I picked it up based on it's theme and found that it's a game that is nearly impossible to actually finish a race if the other players are on the ball.

A very little-known, GDW game from 1989, based on the RPG Space 1889, in which a group of intrepid adventurers have to rescue slaves and gather loot from the lair of the Beastmen...the native Martians. Modular board, special powers. Not highly rated, but it fits the list. Supposedly a luck/dice fest but fun. Haven't played it yet.

An old SPI adventure game based in the Edgar Rice Burroughs version of Mars, "Barsoom." John Carter is a Civil War Captain transported there via some weird astral portal in 1866. Supposedly there is a movie about this in the works, but latest word is it's been delayed. Haven't played this yet, either but I got some of the books to pass on with the game to my son when he's old enough...may be a while if the box cover is any indication (haha).

There are several games basedon the Jules Verne steampunk novel(steamships, steam trains and steaming elephants!!)

This is the latest game, highly rated and gives the flavour of going round the world up against tight deadlines

The Deadlands franchise, in the incarnation here that I'm most familiar with, contains a few steampunkish factions. My favorite, the Collegium, is an outfit built around dudes with the Mad Scientist trait. Mad Scientists can use their turns to build Gadgets. Some gadgets are weapons (Ray Gun, Gatling Pistol, Dynamite Luancher), some are vehicles, and some are just plain useful (Ghost Rock Detector, SUZY209). The Collegium can win the game just by building enough difficult gadgets, and the Union Army's mysterious Agency is known to employ the talents of several gadgetmen, too.

Best described as High Noon meets H.P. Lovecraft, the game is set in an alternate timeline version of the 1860s-1870s, one where California has been reduced to a Pacific archipelago by to a shaman-induced earthquake. The Civil War is still raging back east. Magic-wielding hucksters stalk the saloons. Undead gunslingers walk the streets. And horrors from beyond lie in wait for any soul brave enough to leave town.

Unfortunately, there is no image for this game that shows any of the gadgets... it's scanner time!

I haven't played this, but this definitely seems interesting.

"Iron Stars is a game of space combat in an age of steam and steel. Set in a fictional universe based loosely on the writings of H. G. Wells and other fantasists, it provides a back story and ship designs from an alternate history in which the Martian Invasion actually happened, the ether is all-pervasive, and Cavorite is a reality."

Now heres a card game which seems interesting. Goblin mechanics trying to build some magical machines. I have to get my hands on this one. And if I've understood correctly this is set in a same Iron Kingdoms world as Warmachine.
