More than 3 years ago, Small World was the first digital board game to ship on a tablet, the same day the iPad shipped! Today, we are proud to introduce Small World 2, a from-the-ground-up rewrite and massive update to our best-selling board game. We’ve added 3-5 player maps, 2 different online modes, pass’n-play and local play, along with the new-to-digital Be Not Afraid… expansion and much, much more.

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.
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.
Congratulations to Ben Miller, Sean McFarlane, Duncan Conner and Christian Olsson of Scotland who battled over the Small World board for 54 hours and 45 minute to break the Guinness World record for the Longest Boardgame Marathon in Scotland last week. Sean apparently didn’t get enough as he challenged any of the volunteers who witnessed the event to a game of Small World over the weekend! (more…)

To help you wait for the arrival of the upcoming expansion of Small World, we just uploaded the rules on Small World Realms web page.
So? Are you still here? What are you waiting for?
The Small World Universe is expanding beyond its borders with Small World Realms, a big new expansion that features scores of puzzle-like geomorphic Terrain tiles that assemble into countless different board maps. With Realms, the very ground your fantasy races walk upon is shifting under their feet!
With the release of Small World Realms becoming imminent, it is time for us to dig into one of the most complex scenarios of this pack – A Dig Too Far. Here to shed some light on this new Underground Realm is Philippe Keyaerts, the designer of Small World.
Following our adventure to the East, let’s consider a slightly more complex scenario – The Crops of Power.
This 2-6 player scenario introduces a new rule that lets each player who ventures into these Realms use not 1, but 2 Special Powers! But let’s catch up with Philippe Keyaerts, the game designer of Small World again…
