  • Australia

    Finnish review of Australia. Australia is a potential victim for too high expectations. After all, Kramer and Kiesling are responsible for the mask trilogy (Tikal, Java, Mexica) and Australia seems to fit with that group. However, that’s not the case. Australia is clearly a lighter game (even lighter than Mexica), aimed at the family market. […]

  • Afternoon games: Australia, Industrial Waste

    Once again I met with the Ollis to play games. We started with Australia, requested by Olli M-K., who had also played it once before. Olli H. was new to the game.

  • A pleasant kind of interruption
