Thursday, April 26th, 2012

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…

Small World Realms – Go East

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

As we are putting the finishing touches on our latest Small World expansion, it seems to be the right time to discuss one of the most important aspects of the Realms: Its scenarios.

Twelve in total, there are enough to appeal to both expert masters of Small World and novice players alike. Thanks to the geomorphic nature of the Terrain tiles, each scenario can be customized for a varying number of players, with many of the scenarios scaling well up to 6 players!

Start Digging – Small World Tunnels are here

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

Small World Tunnels, the new free mini-expansion, is now available from game stores throughout North America and Europe. (Note: some stores may ask that you be a customer or make a purchase to qualify for the Tunnels expansion.) Tunnels connects the original Small World game board to Small World Underground so you can play in both worlds. Visit the Tunnels web page to learn more.

If there is no store near you, you can also order one directly from the Days of Wonder web store. The Tunnels expansion is free, but unless you also purchase another product you’ll have to pay a small shipping and handling fee.  There’s a limit of only 1 free Tunnels expansion per customer.

What are you waiting for? Start digging!

When in a Tunnel, Keep Digging!

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

 

Small World fans have been clamoring for a smooth mechanism to connect Small World to the Underground so (with a little help from the Gnomes) we started drilling! The result: Small World Tunnels, a free mini expansion that connects the original Small World game board to the subterranean Small World Underground game board. Players use Caverns as tunnel entrances to jump between the two worlds as they deploy the Races and Special Powers from both games. By connecting the two worlds, this expansion also makes the Races and Special Powers from above and below ground more universally compatible.
