Cargo Noir Replacement Token Bags

Friday, April 15th, 2011

Cargo NoirSome customers have reported that their Cargo Noir token bags were shredded or easily torn. While smugglers in the 50′s may have had to work with old and torn cargo nets, we don’t think Cargo Noir players should be forced to do the same.

We have produced some stronger, reinforced token bags to replace any that are faulty. These replacement bags are free of charge to any Cargo Noir owners who have a torn or shredded token bag and are available worldwide directly through Days of Wonder customer service. You can request a replacement bag through the Days of Wonder Contact us page.  Be sure to complete the Postal Information section accurately.

Note that replacement bags will be sent out via postal service so we will not be able to provide any tracking information or estimated delivery times. Thanks for your patience.

Necromancer Island now available direct from DOW

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Necromancer Island, is a free, limited-edition Small World scenario originally available only from game retailers, or if you ordered a Small World product directly from Days of Wonder.

Since not everyone has been able to get a their hands on a copy of Necromancer Island, we’ve now made them available directly from the US Days of Wonder web store while supplies last. The Necromancer Island expansion is still free, but you will need to pay shipping & handling charges. You can order Necromancer Island by itself or add it to an order for another game or product.

If you are only ordering Necromancer Island and shipping to the United States, we suggest choosing US First Class Mail as your shipping option which will result in the least expensive shipping option.

Order Necromancer Island here

Note: If  you order another Small World product from the web store, Necromancer Island WILL NOT be automatically added to your order. You need to specifically add it to your cart. Necromancer Island is only available from the US Days of Wonder web store (none are available in Europe) while supplies last and this offer is limited to one copy of Necromancer Island per customer.
