I woke up this morning to the news that there is a new expansion due for release soon for Small World. The expansion A Spider’s Web will first be available at the Essen Games fair in October and will hit the stores in November. A Spider’s web brings three new races to Small World –
- Ice Witches
There are also 3 new power badges
Additionally Days of Wonder the publishers of Small World have announced that they are rereleasing several expansions to Small World. So if you’re a fan now is a great time to check you have all the expansions.
The Royal Bonus Expansion is an expansion that was previously only made available to Kickstarter backers. It also includes 3 new races and power badges – the Races Fauns, Igors & Shrubmen and the Special Power badges Fireball, Aquatic & Behemoth.
Necromancer Island and Leaders are two micro expansions which have been out of print for a long time, these will also be reprinted and available to buy in November.
Leaders – The Leaders expansion features Leader tokens for all Small World Races. They are neither a Race nor a Special Power. Instead, they are a new option for players: whenever you pick a new Race and Special Power combo, you may opt to attach the services of a leader to your Race. He will be a welcome addition to your strength but with the risk that he might be captured and ransomed!
Necromancer Island – In Necromancer Island, one of the players assumes the role of a dreaded Necromancer who inhabits an island in the center of Small World’s central Lake region. He captures the souls of all Race tokens lost to conquests, using them to progressively spawn Ghosts who invade the surrounding Regions. To make matters worse, his Powers grow as his reach across the land increases. If the Necromancer succeeds in bringing all of his Ghosts into play, anytime before the game’s end, he wins!
