The Kiwi Acres Adventure Collection

Beyond the rolling hills and sprawling pastures of a quiet New Zealand farm lies a world that few would expect. A world of danger and adventure, where tiny creatures scurry and flutter under the watchful gaze of larger beasts, friend and foe alike. This is a world of adventure, where brave and curious mice embark on perilous journeys in search of treasure and knowledge.

But beware, dear adventurer, for Kiwi Acres is not for the faint of heart. Along the way, you may encounter a fierce gang of wētā, a crazed kea wreaking havoc, a possum bent on dominance, or even a wise old albatross with secrets to share. Venture across the farmland and discover the magic of the Kākāriki Orchard, explore the Fernwood Forest, or brave the dark of the Forgotten Shed.

The path ahead is treacherous and full of challenges, but the rewards are great for those who dare to explore. So gather your courage, pack your bags, and join the ranks of the brave mice who came before you. Are you ready to take on the wilds of Kiwi Acres and uncover the mysteries that lie within?

"Kiwi Acres is a masterclass in setting design and thoughtful world-building! Hugh has added so much to the content catalog of Mausritter and I truly believe Kiwi Acres can, does, and will provide hours upon hours of game-able content for tables across the globe! Kiwi Acres is Bernpyle-approved!"

Matthew Morris, creator of Bernpyle & Lilliputian

"I LOVED this – the setting was great and gave us opportunities to look up and learn more about the location, the adventures were super cute and accessible for my kid, and the mechanics were streamlined and easy to pick up while still being interesting. It is perfect for all ages (not just kids)."

New Zealand is such a perfect setting for Mausritter - especially New Zealand today with lots of pressure on our native ecosystems. This is the kind of Mausritter content I've been looking for!

I couldn't agree more 😄
