Enter, and allow yourself to break free from the shackles of normality.

Welcome to the Square Mile…

The concept of the Square Mile is an old one. The Square Mile was a mythical place, a lawless area of true emancipation. The Square Mile Studio aims to bring hints of the freedom of that concept to the real world, through the magical interface of tabletop games. Board games are a unique interface in this modern day and age. In a world where video games and television are dominant, we believe that board games provide the opportunity for community to flourish and for imagination reclaim its rightful place at the forefront of human consciousness. Having said that, before you get the impression that we're real purists, we should come clean: we do also do video games!

If you ever find yourself in need of a break, a change, an escape; if work has you down, your friends aren’t around. If you’re searching for more, if life’s been a bore, then we have the solution for you.

The Square Mile is a paradise. A fragment of free space, an expanse where you can truly be yourself. There are no restrictions, no regulations. Administration is absent; merely enter, and be free.

Who are we?

The Square Mile is an Australian based game publishing company founded in 2020; with us opening an office in the US in 2022. 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.

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.

Explore a world with no limits.

Bring your friends, bring your family, bring your boss! Bring that particularly annoying colleague you always avoid in the break room… Come, be free; express your primal humanity, for nothing strengthens social bonds like a truly lawless environment.

We can provide you with the (last) experience of a lifetime!
