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.

Small World Underground – Now available everywhere

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Small World Underground, the new stand-alone addition to the Small World universe is now available at  game stores throughout North America, as well as all of Europe.

With all new Races and Special Powers, new maps and terrain types, plus Monsters protecting Righteous Relics and Popular Places, isn’t it time to go subterranean? Learn more at the Small World Underground Page or head to a game store near you to check it out.
