Preparing for my “Tales of the Gold Monkey” GASLIGHT Game

I am going to run a GASLIGHT game at Cold Wars that is very loosely based on the Tales of the Gold Monkey television show.  Each player will have a group of explorers and will set out to find treasure.  They will have cards that they can play on each other to slow down the other teams with wild animals, natives, natural disasters, and monsters.  The table will be mostly empty except for some jungle.  When the players move into terra incognita, I will place different terrain pieces on the table.

Team 1: Teddy Roosevelt and some odd explorers.

Team 2: Jake Cuter and some Americans.

Team 3: The sergeants from Gunga Din and some friends.

Team 4: Bing, Bob, Dorothy, and the Andrews Sisters of Mercy.

Some native fun that must be stopped.

Team 5: Germans.

Team 6: Brits.

Team 7: Italians.

Team 8: French Foreign Legion.

Will the players rescue Amelia Earhart?

Will the players pry the eyes out of this idol?

Or will they ransack this temple?
