Fire your imagination with these fun storytelling cards. Reviving the Victorian craze for myrioramas," the 20 picture cards can be placed in any order to create seamless scenes. Almost infinite combinations of cards provide endless storyscaping possibilities.

London, 1900. A brilliant scientist leaves the world above to create his own world below, determined to prove his radical theory - that gravity is a geometric property of spacetime. What happens when time is bent, space is collapsed, and dimensions overlap? Descend into the shadow world to find out.

With many games to play and millions of stories to tell, each turn of the card is a new adventure. Where will the story take you?"
