Tour Australia in new game, Boomerang, by Tiny Epic designer, Scott Almes

June 9, 2018 - 1:38am

Scott Almes, the designer behind the Tiny Epic series of games and the very popular, Heroes of Land, Air & Sea, has just kickstarted a new, stand-alone game, called Boomerang.

Boomerang could be described as a card drafting game (like 7 Wonders or Sushi Go!), mixed with a roll-and-write game (like Yahtzee, or Qwixx).

With roll-and-write games taking off the last few years and card drafting already a favorite mechanism among many, Boomerang is sure to appeal to a wide swath of gamers.

In Boomerang, players are touring Australia, trying to see and do as much as they can before their holiday ends! By spotting native animals, collecting pieces of Australiana, and doing other holiday activities, players will earn points. Each round players will draft cards, mark off various accomplishments on their score sheets, and at the end of the game, the best traveller wins. You beauty!
