Barnum and make your enterprise the most incredible show of America!
The Amazing American Circus relives the great days of 19th-century American circuses where players can build their circus empire, manage it and perform however they choose. It explores the behind-the-scenes organization of circuses, the bizarre folklore, brutal crimes, and social inequality of 19th century American entertainment. This unique experience delivers the story of a struggle between a newcomer and an industry giant – P.T. Barnum. Like Slay the Spire, The Amazing American Circus brings a fresh approach to the deck-building genre. Players can use collectible cards to perform incredible circus stunts and wow their audiences.
