Free Dad’s Edition when you spend $30 or more. Ends 21 August or while stocks last.

The Aussie Edition

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

The Aussie Edition has all our favourite 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 featuring koala’s, billabongs, thongs, skinny lattes and tinnies.

Each kit contains 30 “misdirection cards” which give you random directions to find new places.  You’ll find 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 family friendly, largely direction based version and doesn’t have the same cards as the Girls Road Trip – if you are looking for an 18+ activity and direction based game to play with the girls choose this one – it too can be used all around the world.



The Getting Lost Game is designed by Kiwi couple Cat & James, with help (and a lot of road testing) from their 3 daughters.  They create, assemble and ship them from their home in Birkenhead, Auckland.  They ship (sometimes hundreds of games) daily to Australia.  We’d also like to thank our epic Getting Lost community (and special thanks to 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?


Boxed – 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 booster packs.

Cased – Available in your choice of our 4 coloured cases made using a plant based plastic.  Choose this option for gifting, to keep all your cards safe and together or just because you love the case (we do too!).


More information about the game


You can watch an interview on The Project over here about the game or find out more about us here.

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

Here’s some ideas we’ve had though…

      • For quick play, pick a new direction card at each intersection or after you’ve completed a direction
      • 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 ones more likely to take you further from home
      • 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
      • Want to surprise someone?  Add in your own card in the middle (we even make proposal cards and have been part of over 30 proposals!)

Our suitcases measures 100mm x 85mm x 24mm.  Your suitcase fits up to 45 cards.  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 mini compass is an optional add on.  It is 20mm (so please don’t give this to under 3’s as it is a choking hazard).  Just like Superman wears his undies on the outside we recommend you put your compass on the outside of your case too for the best fit.  Just loop the cord around the handle – easy!

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 Walkers Edition 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.  Please don’t leave your case in a hot car – it will warp!  If you are leaving it in a car tuck it under a seat or in the glove box or somewhere cool.

    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.
