At Original D&D Discussion there are a couple of discussions that I think would be a wonderful format for Wonderland.
You, too, CAN run Empire of the Petal Throne
http://odd74.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=ept&action=display&thread=6117

I think a lot of people don't know HOW to run a Wonderland game. I'm not sure myself how to hook players in and get them over the "it's just silly" stigma.

If an experienced GM could help the rest of us ...

If you ever played Andy Hopps Low Life, Wonderland seems to be dead serious!
Razz

I'm overexaggerating...

I was thinking not so much about "Seriousness" as I was the fine line between Madness and Silly.
Modern sensibilities are quite different from the time the books were written.

How do you infuse the game with "madness" while still attracting players?

I see posted all the time how people say they are sick of the same old Elves / Dwarves / "Hobbits" fantasy, and most everyone has a passing knowledge of Wonderland.
Why is it not a top contender for "Alternate Fantasy"? Is it too "Furry"? Is it too "Childish"? Can it be blamed on Disney?
How closely do the books need to be followed? Is this a "roadblock"?

Does there need to be more emphasis on the struggle of Red -vs- White (a WWII analog)? What is the missing "spark" and can it be revealed to the uncaring masses in a way to get their attention?

That would be my first guess. Honestly, I'm not sure how many people have actually read the Wonderland stories, so they probably think of the Disney versions first.

While there is nothing "wrong" with a Disney version, it is not the limit of possibilities.
Even more reason a clear description of How To make it Something To Play would be useful.
