A number of Australian designed games have been quite popular (although their Aussie origins are often not widely known). Of course Australia has also produced it's share of eminently forgetable games as well. Ric Heli has a list
of games set in Australia. http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3action=view&listid...
I'm interested in games designed there.

by Robert Croft Lloyd - first released 1962 and sold over 450,000 copies just in Australia. I know some people who used to play this in tandem with monopoly - I'm told it bought out the Pitt Street farmer in everyone.

Peter Hawes from Brisbane (if memory serves) designed this one. I spoke with him a few times. Nice bloke. I think he had a large games group he ran that got into German games before most other people in Australia.

by Harry Rowlands. Not yet released, but Their web site ( http://www.a-d-g.com.au ) says they are only 161 preorders short of the required 1000 to do a print run. He uses an interesting map projection of the world and has a very ambitious sounding game outline.
