Parasol Dueling  is a steampunk sport that we are excited to bring to 13 GEARS and will be conducted as follows.

Figures are used to determine the outcome of a round and are similar to the street urchins game of Rock, Paper, Scissors.
The three Parasol Duel "Figures" are:
The Plant (rock) - Parasol is held point down to the ground at the side of the player.
The Twirl (paper) - Parasol is opened and placed on the shoulder and twirled.
The Snub (scissors) - Parasol is held pointing towards the opponent and opened.
Therefore: Plant​ ​beats Snub;​ ​Twirl​ ​beats Plant; Snub​ ​beats Twirl

Here is a video of how we will be conducting parasol dueling at 13 GEARS:

We are hosting a  Tea Dueling  tournament again at 13 GEARS! This event is brought to you by the help of the DIODES and tea selection from Bingley's Tea in Minneapolis! 

Tea Dueling, simply like playing a game of chicken with a tea soaked biscuit. The winner is the last person to successfully eat the entire biscuit in one bite (without loosing any of the tea soaked biscuit on the table or themselves).
