The winning entries from the Small World Design Contest have been announced (see The Envelope Please…) and will be published in a series of Small World Mini-Expansions.
The Grand Prize and Secondary Prize winners will be released in 3 different Small World mini-expansions this year.
The first two expansions will debut at Essen.
The Grand Dames of Small World will feature Priestesses, White Ladies, and Gypsies, along with Historian and Peace-loving Special Powers.
Cursed! introduces the Kobolds and Goblin races along with 5 Special Powers: Cursed, Hordes of, Marauding, Ransacking, and Were-.
Both of these Small World mini-expansions will be available for sale at Essen and shortly thereafter from the Days of Wonder webstore and in game stores around the world for the MSRP of $10/€8.
One of the Secondary Prize winners, Leaders of Small World, is a special game play option that players can choose when picking a new Race/Special Action Combo.
The Leaders expansion will be sent free of charge, as a thank you to all those who submitted an entry in the Small World Design Contest. Small World fans worldwide who did not enter the contest will also be able to get a copy exclusively from BoardGameGeek.com in November for a small shipping and handling fee.
The Special Prize winning entry – Tales & Legends of Small World – will be published as a separate expansion in 2010.
