Welcome to the Square Mile…

We created The Square Mile as an avenue to add our own stamp to the board game space. As lifelong gamers, the opportunity to add our own voice to the legion of creatives and designers that form the illustrious industry is incredibly rewarding. Through our products, we hope that our fellow gamers will be able to experience the same joy and wonder that so many games have afforded us in the past.

Who are we?

The Square Mile is an Australian/US game publishing company founded in 2020. We develop and publish board and digital games across a range of genres. The Square Mile combines our passion for games with our ability as creators to develop exciting products and experiences in this space.


Reign Absolute

Reign Absolute is our current flagship project. Reign Absolute has been in development in one way or another since 2001 (with something resembling the current iteration first being floated in 2013). Reign Absolute was conceived as a ‘quick fantasy fix’, a card game designed to mate the joy of expansive fantasy games, the easy play of party games and the solid ‘feel’ of board games. Reign Absolute will be coming to Kickstarter in 2023.

Warlord: Orc Duel

Warlord: Orc Duel is a head-to-head tableau building card game, focused on the Orcs from Reign Absolute! In the fight to win the loyalty of the three Orc factions, you will be drawing strategically from the Orc Horde while using powerful abilities to gain the edge over your opponent. Be mindful, however – while building the strongest tableau is the name of the game, the collection of the six putrid Vile Ichors offers an alternate and immediate means to victory for either player. The Warlord: Orc Duel Kickstarter is currently live.

Empire in Flames

Empire in Flames is a solo print ‘n’ play strategy game set in the world of Reign Absolute. Focusing on the Empire faction, this game is the first micro-campaign designed to expand the lore of the Reign Absolute world. The Empire in Flames Kickstarter page is here.
