What is Small World about?
There is not enough space in Small World. There too many races living off the land.
In Small World, you will:
pick a fantasy Race and Special Power combination,
use Race’s unique traits and skills to place troops in various regions and conquer adjacent lands
occupy Regions and earn Victory Coins
Eventually, your race will become increasingly over-extended (like those you have already crushed!) and you will need to abandon your race and look for another.
Your victory will depend on you knowing when to push your race into decline and look for a new one to conquer the land of Small World!
