AuZtralia is designed by renowned game designer Martin Wallace and thematically linked to his game A Study in Emerald. Set in an alternate reality 1930s where the northern hemisphere lands are poisoned and the masses are starving, adventurers set out to explore and settle lands in the newly discovered Australia. Little did they know that the surviving Old Ones have taken up residence in the outback, and will soon awaken!
Everything you do in the game costs time. At a point in time, the Old Ones will awaken and become an active player. They begin to reveal themselves and move, with potentially devastating outcomes. You’ll need to prepare wisely for the awakening and may have to cooperate with others to defeat the most dangerous Old Ones.
Build a port, construct railways, mine resources, farm for food, recruit military units and unique personalities...and prepare for the Awakening of The Old Ones for a fight for your lives! Will humanity prevail or will the Old Ones wreak their revenge in AuZtralia?
Our world has widened before us. Corporations expand their operations to all corners of the solar system in pursuit of minerals and resources. Most places are not suited for terraforming, but building colonies may greatly improve your income and your possibilities in achieving that higher goal — the terraforming of Mars. Send your trade fleet to distant moons! Colonize the clouds of Jupiter! And let your Earth assets propel you to success!
Terraforming Mars: Colonies, an expansion for Terraforming Mars that can be played with only the base game or with any combination of expansions, lets you visit the outer solar system. It features colony tiles where you can build colonies and send your trade fleet. It also includes new cards and corporations.
