From the Publisher...

Australia – the fifth and smallest continent at the beginning of the 1920s. The economic crisis is yet to come – Australia is booming. Industrial modernisation and development are pursued with vigour to help the economy “down under” progress. At the same time, the government is arranging for countless National Parks to be set up and are initiating numerous projects to support the natural environment.

Every player leads a troop of rangers who have been assigned the task, by the government, of carrying out various conservation and industrialisation projects.The most successful player wins the game.

Australia is an area majority game that at first glance may seem similar to others in this genre - however, there is an important twist. In Australia, you are not placing your playing pieces on the contested areas (projects), but in camps that are adjacent to several areas at once. This gives you much more flexibility in how to use your pieces and creates a much more dynamic game, with more ways to achieve your goals. I also like that constant choice you have to make between placing pieces or getting gold - it is a mechanic that reminds me of El Grande, and it works equally well here.
