Game

This website is finally out of service.
I will return with a very limited subset of games (Splotter, maybe Adlung Spiele, Drei Magier Spiele, probably no more) fairly soon.

Thank you for your custom over the past 21 years! Yes, I started in 2003.
It has been a great thing to have done. The first online discount board games store in Australia & with a mission statement to lower the price of boardgames in Australia. I believe I achieved this aim.

I have enjoyed it, but it took over my life; even finding somewhere to live involved needing space for the stock. I am happy now to let it go.
I have made so many friends, both here & overseas. I now number some of the most respected games designers among my good friends.

In case anyone is interested, these are my favourite 4 games in no particular order:
Age of Steam (I have around 80 maps)
Tahauntinsuyu (republished as Incan Empire)
Last Will
Tzolkin (but boy do I suck at it!)

Keep an eye out. The site'll be back soon, & I may appear at your games group or convention - but as a gamer not a stall holder :)

This website began life as a php/SQL uni assignment!

It is 1888, and everywhere you turn, people are talking about the horseless carriage. They are also talking about Jenatzy and Cugnot, Benz and Diesel, Atkinson and Butler – visionaries now remembered for their passion to create, to progress, and to succeed. But this game is not about them, these giants of engineering.

No, in Gear & Piston, you play one of the unsung heroes of history, an engineer of meagre means but great ambition, trying to build a prototype for picky investors seeking to profit from the future of transport. Will you make a name for yourself as an automotive pioneer, change the history of motorized transportation, and win the race that is Gear and Piston? With a lot of skill and a little luck, maybe. If nothing else, try not to blow yourself up in the process.

In the game, each player builds an automobile prototype by taking actions in different locations. You may patent brand-new parts in the Patent Office, look for rejected, volatile pieces of machinery in the chaos of the Junk Yard, try to gain an edge through the Back Alley, and finally build your prototype in the Workshop. All this just to please the two investors who are doing the rounds of the different engineering outfits, and who will be evaluating your rickety mess of an automobile. Good timing, keeping an eye on your competitors, and even a dash of luck are all you need to succeed in this business. So grab a wrench, some elbow grease, and your wits, and put some gears and pistons together!
