I have played this game with two players, 4 and 5. It is great fun, its replayability is one of its strong points. It plays well with 2,4 and 5 people (5 does take a long time, which is understandable). The rules are not too hard and it does not take for ever to finish. The design is absolutely beautiful and all the expansions that are available will give you an extra twist is you want it. I would recommend it to anyone who likes board games even if they are not hardcore players.

Small World is a quick, easy to learn and addictive strategy game. Anyone can have a good time playing: it takes only a few minutes to explain the rules and most people will grasp the sense of the game within the first round. Yet the game offers interesting decisions on every round and no two games are alike. Better yet, games are fairly short yet addictive enough that players will be up for another game. This makes the game one of my most successful game purchases in a while, with the game already seeing a lot of play amongst my friends.

The game places players in the eponymous 'Small World', a domain that isn't quite big enough to accommodate the many fantasy peoples that inhabit it. Each player selects a particular race on their turn, receives a certain number of tokens and attempts to place them on the board so as to capture as many territories as possible. Players receive victory points for each territory they occupy at the end of the turn, and after a fixed number of turns the player with the most points wins. Here is the fun part: each race possesses different abilities and is paired with a random special power. The combinations of races and abilities are random and so each game sees different combinations, which many include Spirit Elves, Fortified Giants, Commando Humans or Forest Wizards. The abilities grant extra points on certain tiles, allow your race to move across the board differently or take over territories more easily and so on. Some combinations are weak, others are very strong. Most are more or less useful depending on the stage in the game and the state of play. Adding a further dimension to the game is the fact that you only have a finite number of tokens to make your conquests with any one race, so you usually find yourself running out of steam at some point.

I and everyone who's played really like this game. It's not too long (45 - 90 mins), the board and illustrations are really cool and each game is different, as there are many race/skill combinations. There's also extension sets available, and it might be a good idea to get the female races as in this one only The Amazons are female. I've played with adults, teens and 10 year olds and everyone loves it. The rules aren't too complicated. It's like a simpler, shorter and more chaotic version of Risk and a good introduction to this type of game - highly recommend.

I bought this game after watching it being played on Wil Wheaton’s tabletop and thinking it looked like an enjoyable game with longevity thanks to the multiple combinations of races and abilities.

The quality of the game is fantastic, the graphics and details on the board and the pieces are excellent and everything has a nice feel to it that you know isn’t cheap and flimsy – this game feels like it was put together with care and will last a number of years of solid use.

However despite owning this game for over a year it just hasn’t been out of the box more than a handful of times. In a games stack that has Catan & Carcassonne for competition Small World loses out time and time again. I think what drew me to the game has made it hard to for it to be accepted in my gamer group, the different rules and tiles and ambiguous rulebook has just made it an effort to “get into” compared to Catan and Carcassonne that were picked up within moments. Also the sheer number of tiles and tokens make it all so busy and time consuming that you end up investing a large portion of the evening in one game of Small World knowing that you could be 2 or 3 games into something else.

Having said that I feel that is my gaming groups personal feel for the game, I suspect in most other groups small world would be very accessible. I wish I could award it 3.5 stars as I think the positives of this game outweigh the negatives and I have always felt that if we invested a bit more time in the game it would shine. If I only had a budget or space for 1 or 2 games though I can’t see this beating out Catan, Carcassonne or others.

I bought this as a gift for my partner, who enjoys strategy games. I myself favour games that are simply fun. I have impeccable taste as this game suits us both perfectly. So much fun and variety packed alongside a strategic game play. And with a large portion of the game randomised and changed each time you play, it doesn't get boring or 'samey'. Excellent, excellent game.

I was sceptical about this game when someone mentioned it to me as it seemed too simple and not a lot to it. However, having now played it a few times it certainly rates high on the fun game scale. It really is a well thought out game and plays better the more players you have.

My kids can play this game and they enjoy it as much as the adults. That is teh sign for me of a fun family game.

Days of Wonder have certainly fixed onto a winning formula with this and the additional expansions on offer are testament to the playability of the game.

Not too sure about the logevity of the game yet, but that only comes with time. Ticket to Ride is certainly a winner in our house and this is a close second.

The pieces are well designed and made with several differnet board areas depending on the number of players you have.

Days of Wonder allow you to print copies of their rules from their website, so give them a read before you buy it. Having said that, I suggest that you do buy it and enjoy it. Yes it really is that easy to play...
