One Thousand Rats (est. 2022) is a small board game design and publishing house based in Meanjin, Australia. We are looking to design and publish our own games, as well as games from other local designers.

We are currently fulfiling the Kickstarter for our first game, Curses and Covens. We funded at ~170% and are so grateful to all of the amazing people that backed. If you want to check out the updates and progress on our Kickstarter, click here.
