Cannonballs for inappropriate dress!

I got a huge kick out of this game, in which you pretend to be either a lady or a gentleman from the Victorian period and you have to choose the proper clothing and behavior for various situations. The game comes from a museum in Canada, so it ought to be accurate about its period etiquette. But it’s not a boring game; in fact, it’s really quite Monty Python-esque. I got shot down by cannonballs for wearing the wrong gown to a dinner party, and attacked by ninjas for failing to bring a parasol to the park. Horrors!
