Small World is a zany, light-hearted civilization game in which 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 contains 2 double-sided game boards, 14 fantasy races, 20 special power badges, various landscape markers, 109 victory coins, 6 player summary sheets, 1 reinforcement die, and 1 rules booklet. Small World is recommended for 2-5 players ages 8 and up, and takes approximately 40-80 minutes to play.
