Game Groups > Theme: Circus

Games inspired by classical or modern-day circuses, with may include but not limited to: clowns, trained animals, acrobats, and a lot of really big tents! Games under this group should have the setting of a circus as a large part of the story line or gameplay consists of the player performing in a circus or in a circus-controlled environment.

Historically, circuses were thought to have first originated in Ancient Rome, identified with stadiums and arenas consisting of chariot races and gladiator fights. The modern-day circus was established in Europe around the 18th century.

Limitations

  • Games that identify a circus but do not have a direct correlation with a circus in the gameplay or storyline should not be added in this game group.

  • A Roman-era game that has a Circus Maximus (even though it may have chariot races to play) should not be added in this game group if the circus is not the primary gameplay or story of the game.
