It's a long way to Tipperary...

Do you remember the tune? In this cheerful family game, the players have to create their perfect idea of an Irish county by laying out landscape tiles. The linchpin is a "magical stone circle" that decides which of the tiles you can choose from. If you combine them skilfully, you will eagerly collect sheep, castles and whiskey for more victory points.

County Tipperary in Ireland:

You live in a small town amidst lush green meadows, extensive bogs, and impressive hills. In the surrounding countryside, you find mystical stone circles and medieval ruins, build new pastures for your flocks of sheep, and produce whiskey in traditional distilleries.

You explore new areas by choosing landscape tiles each round, which you must skillfully fit into your displays. While doing so, you try to create as large a rectangular area as possible. The player who also manages to use the special features of the landscapes to their advantage will come out on top in the end. After 12 rounds, one player is master of Tipperary.

Holy moly, off to Ireland! When will this Polyomino game be available in stores?

Tipperary will be released at the UK Games Expo 2023 in early June and will then be available in stores simultaneously in the UK and Germany.

Until then, you can play test the prototype of Tipperary at numerous events in Germany - check in with our social media accounts for more information!

Lookout - you might have noticed this bag is way too small...??

We totally agree. Yes, the bags should indeed be a whole size larger.... that's how they were planned. Sometimes something like this happens despite all the care.

We discussed all solutions, but decided against unpacking the entire run and disposing of lots of foil. As you know, Lookout has been trying to be very responsible with resources for years.
reprint will have the correct bag size.

Quick solution for your set up: Once you have placed the first 10 tiles for the starting display, it's working. You can also pull the pieces out of the box lid.

At SPIEL 2023, the Lookout customer magazine was sporting a Tipperary promo and a solo mode. Would it be possible to get these in English, too?

Translation of these files is complete, so we can provide you with both files - please go to the download section above.

If you like both the solo mode and the objectives for this game by Günter Burkhardt, please let us know via social media!
