Saxony’s energy revolution was so impactful that everyone wanted to start using Nucleums in their regions. Australia’s huge deposits of uranium were ripe for the taking, leading to visionaries—lured by the vast number of possibilities—visiting the continent and changing it into a new global power. Here, these entrepreneurs have to face new challenges presented by the sheer size of the continent. Fortunately, the clever use of shipping lanes will help them transport resources more efficiently than by rail and even gain access to the nearby island of Tasmania, where a mad scientist conducting his own experiments managed to replicate Elsa’s invention, which is now proudly presented as an Experimental Power Plant in the island’s capital of Hobart.
In Nucleum: Australia, an exhilarating expansion to the immensely popular core game, players immerse themselves in the vast landscapes of Australia, endeavoring to replicate the triumphs achieved in Saxony and ignite an exuberant revolution in the Antipodes.
