Schilmil Games and Stonghold Games are nearing the end of a successful Kickstarter to bring two new expansions to Martin Wallace’s AuZtralia board game. AuZtralia: Revenge of the Old Ones allows one player to take on the role of forces of the Mythos. AuZtralia: TaZmania is a dual-map expansion for designed specifically for solitaire or two player games. The project to bring these to life is over 800% funded and you can reserve a copy of both expansions for a $59.00 pledge through April 22nd. Expected delivery is this November.
About the expansions:
1932 — the desolate shores of a new world lie before the would-be colonists. They are on a mission to grow food to feed the war-ravaged populations of the world, a war fought against the terrible Old Ones.
However, this new land hides a terrible secret: It is the final lair of those Old Ones not defeated in the war. They are about to rouse themselves from their slumbers and bring terror down on the settlers. At first these attacks seem to be random. After some time, it becomes obvious that there is a controlling mind behind these evil creatures. Somebody, or something, is directing the hordes of zombies, Mi-go and Shoggoths…and possibly even Cthulhu itself!
AuZtralia: Revenge of the Old Ones enables you to play the game with one player controlling the forces of the Old Ones. This allows the game to be played by up to five players. As well as being able to decide where to place their forces, the Old One player can also summon terrible creatures from the void to create even more havoc. Now you can raise Nyarlathotep or call forth the Hounds of Tindalos to defeat the scourge of humans invading your lands.
In AuZtralia, humanity came to build a new world after a long war against the Old Ones. They failed. The old terrors were waiting for them and pushed them back to the coast. Now their only hope lies in a nearby small island, TaZmania. Will this be the promised land?
AuZtralia: TaZmania is a dual-map expansion for AuZtralia designed specifically for 1-2 players, or (if playing with the Revenge of the Old Ones expansion) three players. One side has a fixed map that is surveyed for resources and Old Ones, while the other side is randomized through a set of 66 terrain tiles.
