Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

This week on Geek & Sundry’s TableTop, join host Wil Wheaton along with his wife, Anne Wheaton, John Kovalic, (creator of Dork Tower), and actress Emma Caulfield (Buffy, 90210, Leverage) for a hotly contested game of Ticket to Ride Europe.

In his blog, Kovalic described the game’s brutality as… “Joss Whedon is in a bad mood and feels like killing off your favorite character!”

Who knew Ticket to Ride Europe could be so vicious?

Small World 6-Player Board now shipping in North America

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

A little help from a friend won’t be too much to ask if you want to conquer the biggest Small World so far… Pair up in teams and attempt to rule the land together. Despite the growing landscape, you’ll find there still isn’t enough room to accommodate you all!

In addition to the double-sided 6-player map (Small World on one side/Underground on the other), the 6 Player Board Expansion expansion includes 4 new Popular Places and a new Righteous Relic specifically designed for team play. You’ll also find additional tokens, markers, Victory coins and the new 6-player Team rules.

Small World 6-Player Map available for Pre-order!

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

It may be a Small World, but it just got a lot bigger with this new 6-player map expansion… Pair up in teams and attempt to rule the land together. Despite the growing landscape, you’ll find there still isn’t enough room to accommodate you all!

This double-sided map gives you a new way to play Small World and Small World Underground. Teams of two players combine to compete against others, with each team member playing their own Race/Special Power combo and keeping their own Victory coins. But there is an ingenious twist… it’s the point total of the LOWEST team member that decides your score against the other teams!

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!”
