Today, Days of Wonder announced Small World: River World, a new expansion for the award-winning fantasy board game Small World. The expansion features 2 new double-sided boards, new rules and event markers, for hours of additional fun.
With River World, players will discover new maps full of water regions haunted by merciless pirates. Players will need to defend their precious harbors against them, fight them on the river, and still keep an eye on their opponents! Some regions such as the shipyard or the temple of the seer may help them to have the upper hand, but in River World, there is still not enough room for everybody. And random events that trigger on each turn add to the chaos! “The maps of River World change the game dynamics”, says Philippe Keyaerts, the game designer. “The river allows you to move faster throughout the board, attacking regions that seemed out of reach. These new maps that will force players to rethink their conquest strategies. The events that appear on every turn considerably affect river regions: these can be safe havens as well as deadly traps!”
Small World: River World is an expansion for 2 to 5 players ages 8 and older, which takes approximately 40-80 minutes to play. It includes 2 double-sided maps (4 River World maps), 12
pirate ships markers, 1 caravel marker, 11 event markers and 1 rule booklet. Small World: River World is expected to be available at Essen Game Fair in Germany in October, shortly after in
Europe and in November in the US.
