Small World Royal Bonus expansion (+ Leaders & Necromancer Island)

Thursday, December 12th, 2013

As a backer reward for the Small World 2 Kickstarter program we created a new Royal Bonus Mini-expansion featuring 3 new Small World Races and 3 Special Powers.

Royal Bonus races include Fauns, Igors and a new favorite – the impregnable forest dwellers known as Shrubmen! Special Powers are Aquatic, Behemoths (don’t let them get settled in the swamps), and a magical Fireball.

We also reprinted a batch of the long out of print Necromancer Island and an improved version of Leaders of Small World (now including all the races from the Small World Universe, up to the Royal Bonus) for our backers. After fulfilling these Kickstarter rewards, we found ourselves with a few extra copies which we are making available to Small World fans. (more…)

The Art of Small World – Amazing 3D figures come to life

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

Sometimes you just need a little patience…

Over a year ago the Days of Wonder game development team was hidden away (in the cold, dark, Dwarf cavern we keep them in), secretly playing around with some new 3D print technology.

After a few weeks, they emerged and in their hands they carried a couple of very cool, highly-detailed figures of Small World characters. The rest of us immediately fell to our knees and cried, “I want! I want! I want!”

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.

Help us make Small World better, a whole lot better!

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

We’re creating a new digital version of YOUR favorite fantasy board game… and you can help make it better thanks to Kickstarter!

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.
