The Aussie Edition

$USD16.36 $USD22.66

You can use our other Getting Lost Games in Australia, but we reckoned you may like one just of your own.

The Aussie Edition is our biggest Getting Lost Game and has all the Getting Lost misdirection cards from our Adventurers Edition that you need to get you finding new places in your backyard (things like turn left, follow a blue car, head in the direction the wind is blowing) plus we’ve put in some extra, uniquely Aussie misdirections too.

Each kit contains 30 “misdirection cards” (our biggest Getting Lost Game!) which give you random directions to find new places – the hidden gems that don’t always show up in the trip guides and support local businesses on your way.  You’ll find yourself enjoying the journey as much as the destination and all having a laugh together as you navigate using our generic misdirection cards.

Please note, this is a version of the Adventurers Edition and doesn’t have the same cards as the Girls Road Trip – if you are looking for these type of cards choose this one – it can be used all around the world.



The Aussie Edition was designed with help from our Getting Lost community (thanks Sarah, Janie, Nesbitt, Shelley, Cheryl, Amy and Alison) to create some uniquely Aussie directions with things like koala’s, billabongs, thongs, skinny lattes, tinnies and eucalyptus trees featuring in this special edition.

Which option do I choose?

Box – with this option your cards come in our custom designed cardboard box.  This is a great option for gifting and to keep all your cards together in the one place.  It also looks great matching designs with our other Getting Lost booster packs and games.

Suitcase – with this option your cards come in a plant based plastic suitcase in your choice of one of four colours.

You can find out about how we designed the game here, ideas on how to play the game here.  Or you can listen to an interview with Cat over here about how to play and the idea behind the game.

We encourage you to make your own rules and the ways you can play it are endless and entirely adaptable to you.

  • For quick play, pick a new direction card at each intersection
  • For a game that lasts a couple of hours pick a new card every 5 minutes
  • Want to keep it simple?  Just keep in the direction cards (left, right, north, south etc) and take out the trickier ones
  • Looking for a weekend get away?  Play the game until you get the “head for home” card and then find a hotel or campground in what ever town you are in when you get the card
  • Don’t want to stop for treats?  Take the treat and drink card out before you start playing
  • Send the kids off for a walk with the game to explore new places
  • Arrive in a new city and set off walking with the cards – take a new direction at each intersection
  • Want to surprise someone?  Add in your own card in the middle (we have been part of four proposals and have a proposal card too)

The suitcase is made using plant based, biodegradable PLA.  It measures 100mm x 85mm x 24mm.  Your case fits the main game plus one additional 10 card booster pack.  If you need more space for extra cards we sell extra suitcases (we call these Matching Luggage) too.  Each card measures 91mm x 55mm.

The game is ideally suited to outdoor play and there are a few cards you won’t be able to use if you are on foot (like follow a white car – unless you are very quick!).  But if you do want to play on foot we recommend you add on the Booster Pack for more walking misdirections.

Please remember to play the game responsibly and make sure that you stay safe and able to get yourself back home at all times.  

The Getting Lost Game is designed and made by us – Cat & James (Kiwi Travel Bloggers), with help (and a lot of road testing) from our 3 daughters.  We create, assemble and ship them from our home in Birkenhead, Auckland.

Our Terms and Conditions are here but if you have any other questions please get in touch.

    We are more than happy with the quality of the case, cards, the ideas and the directions which look fun. The compass is a perfect idea, no need for electronic devices at all.
    Due to appalling weather and floods affecting roads across the East Coast of Australia, delivery was understandably delayed with the package arriving within the last few days.
    With Easter and the school holidays in Queensland rapidly approaching we can put the cards to the test in this vast great land, next adventure will be visiting family across beautiful New Zealand.
    The final delightful surprise was discovering a Summer Edition as an extra, thank you. Tumeke.

    I did the Girl’s Road Trip today with three friends.
    We are all mature women and had a fabulous day.
    So much fun.

    My 6-year-old couldn’t wait to play! We took a little local adventure and rearranged the cards to suit our day. I gave a copy to all our friends for Chrismas! Wonderful product and service. I’m so glad to support a small NZ family business.

    Fantastic prompt, friendly service. Arrived quickly to Australia and love that there is an Australian version. Also good follow up service with the bonus Christmas cards. I gave it to my 18 year old daughter for Christmas and she seemed excited to find a travel partner and go on an adventure when she gets some time.

      Glad it arrived so quickly Kerri. Thanks for taking the time to post a review. 🙂

    These were a Christmas gift and the recipient loved them. I bought the ones in the cardboard boxes and placed them all in a little wicker basket to keep them together, looked like a mini picnic hamper.

    Received my game today, although it was delivered to the wrong address, as my Unit Number was not included in the addressed package. Unfortunately I was very surprised at the size of the game, but that was my error, I didn’t read the dimensions! But probably it’s a better size than I was thinking it was going to be! Hopefully it will be a much used item for my daughter and her family! Thank you.

    Recieved it as an early Christmas gift and am so excited to road test it, what an awesome concept, well done 🎉🎉🎉

    • Cat

      Hi Jo, it doesn’t happen often but like anything there is always one that gets damaged in postage. We’d love to send you a replacement. We’ve tried e-mailing to see which of the cases you bought it is but haven’t had a reply yet so if you see this comment please get back to us so we can fix things up for you. 🙂
