Small World 6-Player Map now available worldwide

Friday, February 28th, 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!

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!
