This week on Geek & Sundry’s TableTop (the insanely popular board game web show), host Wil Wheaton welcomes Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik (“Tycho” and “Gabe” from the Penny Arcade webcomic); and actress and voice actor extraordinaire, Tara Strong (featured in dozens of animated movies, TV series and video games).
2014 marks the 10th Anniversary of the original release of Alan R. Moon’s Ticket to Ride board game. To celebrate, Days of Wonder is hosting a year long series of worldwide tournaments to crown a new Ticket to Ride World Champion. Over 20 different countries will participate to determine National Champions, with each being invited to Paris for the World Championship event in September of 2014.
How will the Ticket to Ride World Champion celebrate his or her victory? With a World-Class rail adventure – the Grand Prize is an unforgettable trip for two to the orient which includes a rail link aboard the legendary Eastern & Oriental Express between Bangkok and Singapore!
Last week-end, The Musée de la Carte à Jouer in Issy-les-Moulineaux, France was invaded by 100 Memoir ’44 players who compete for 2 days on special scenarios based on heroic figures of WWII. Arnaud ‘Grozours’ Péron finally won the tournament against Michel ‘Endicott’ Signer in an epic finale.

Small World 2, the brand new digital version of our award-winning board game – with 3-5 player maps, asynchronous online play, the Be Not Afraid… expansion and more – is coming to the iPad and the Kindle Fire, to Android tablets and PCs running Steam, thanks to the support of the thousands of backers who’ve joined our Kickstarter campaign this past three weeks.
Our friends at Geek & Sundry’s Tabletop show have launched the first annual International TableTop Day and Days of Wonder is hosting a giant Bay Area board game party for gaming fans. The shindig will take place at the AOL building in Palo Alto from 12 Noon – 4PM on Saturday March 30th.
Rewards for everyone – iPad, PC, Android and Kindle Fire tablet owners… and board game players too!
As the very first board game available the day the iPad launched, Small World pioneered a whole new world of board games on tablets. It earned critical acclaim and hordes of devoted players, but aside from a few mini-expansions, barely changed since its launch. But for the past year our development team in Paris has been working on a “from-the-ground-up” rewrite of the game; and Small World 2 – a brand new version with 3-5 player maps, asynchronous online play, the Be Not Afraid expansion and more – will be available on the iPad later this summer.
We’re creating a new digital version of YOUR favorite fantasy board game… and you can help make it better thanks to Kickstarter!
Small World was the first board game EVER on the iPad – if you were one of those who waited in line at your Apple store that day, you could start playing the minute you got home. Fans and critics alike loved it. But our development team quickly turned their focus onto Ticket to Ride for iPad making it look like we had abandoned Small World.
