Necromancer Island now available direct from DOW

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Necromancer Island, is a free, limited-edition Small World scenario originally available only from game retailers, or if you ordered a Small World product directly from Days of Wonder.

Since not everyone has been able to get a their hands on a copy of Necromancer Island, we’ve now made them available directly from the US Days of Wonder web store while supplies last. The Necromancer Island expansion is still free, but you will need to pay shipping & handling charges. You can order Necromancer Island by itself or add it to an order for another game or product.

If you are only ordering Necromancer Island and shipping to the United States, we suggest choosing US First Class Mail as your shipping option which will result in the least expensive shipping option.

Order Necromancer Island here

Note: If  you order another Small World product from the web store, Necromancer Island WILL NOT be automatically added to your order. You need to specifically add it to your cart. Necromancer Island is only available from the US Days of Wonder web store (none are available in Europe) while supplies last and this offer is limited to one copy of Necromancer Island per customer.
