Overview

Small World is a zany, light-hearted civilization game in which 2-5 players vie for conquest and control of a board that is simply too small to accommodate them all! Picking the right combination of fantasy races and unique special powers, players must rush to expand their empires - often at the expense of weaker neighbors. Yet they must also know when to push their own over-extended civilization into decline and ride a new one to victory. Designed by Philippe Keyaerts, as the fantasy follow-up to his award-winning Vinci, Small World is inhabited by a cast of characters such as dwarves, wizards, amazons, giants, orcs and even humans; who use their troops to occupy territory and conquer adjacent lands in order to push the other races off the face of the earth. Small World marks the return of the Days of Wonder line of heavily-themed, big-box sized games featuring evocative illustrations, high-quality European components and a compelling, fun theme.

    Fast Paced and Tons of Fun! This is a great game for almost any

    Fast Paced and Tons of Fun! This is a great game for almost any number of players (2-5). Its easy to learn how to play and has a lighthearted fantasy theme. The game is all about conquering a "small world" too small for all the players and their quirky fantastical races. Its played much like Risk, but it offers a little more strategy at a faster game pace. Players are also never eliminated from the game. Instead someone wins the game by making and plundering the most gold in small world. This is typically done by controlling the most amount of land for the most amount of time in ten rounds. This game comes with a number of expansions that allow you to create your own "small world" board to battle on or add more races and abilities to an already fun game. Highly recommend this game for anyone looking for a fun, lighthearted family or party board game with a little more skill than luck.

    Highly Recomended

    This is a much better game then Risk and has a much more fun and quicker game. The ability to constantly have different combinations of races and abilities makes it so that no two games are the same. Lots of fun.
