Outback Crossing is a tile placement game by Bruce Whitehill for 2-6 players ages 8 and up.
Six to seven animal species are crisscrossing the Australian outback. To control where they’re going, players lay down tiles one at a time onto the grid, claiming ownership of different “trails”, and change things around with the Action tiles. At the end of the game, single tiles won’t score – except for the Tasmanian Devil – and the more tiles of one kind you have on a trail, the better the score; five (or six) different animals on a trail also score very well. The Tasmanian Devil has special value and scores even higher.
NOTE: This game will be available around mid September 2019. You can already pre-order it. If you pick up the game at SPIEL 2019 in Essen you will receive a little extra for free.
