Small World 2 Kickstarter – The Return

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

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.

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.
