This is an addition to Small World and cannot be played by itself. Newcomers must strat by checking out Small World - the main game.
In fact the first thing you will notice is that there is hardly anything in the box so only 3 stars as it is not very good value for money.
What you get is 3 new races, all female oriented complete with race counters and 2 race ability cards. As said not much for your money.
Even then the new races are odd, two the Priestesses and White Ladies only come into their own in the decline and here the Priestesses are vulnerable. The third race Gypsies have a great potential and can mix up the game.
The 2 race ability cards are nothing special but do not unbalance the game.
A fan of Small world and a collector will want these (but will still find them expensive for value) but if you are unsure go for the Cursed addition instead, it is better value for money IMHO.
