Now Small World is stuck in my head...The good news is, now it's stuck in yours, too.
Board game could've became something great, It's $%^&ed up now.
This is interesting.
Small World is a pretty great board game as it is. Probably going to have to add this to my collection.
Small World is actually a really fun game. I'm not sure that the WoW retheme will add much to it, as it's already a fantasy themed game with orcs, elves, gnomes, dwarves and undead, but if you haven't played the original and like board games it's probably worth a try.
Wtf Blizzard, $ 59,99 in the US (assuming that's excluding VAT, that would be around $ 73 including 21%VAT), but € 82,99 in the European gear store. Do you want us to import it or something?
TLDR: Some Artifacts and Legendary Places(LP) are similar/same as racials/traits. Im conflicted as in i like idea of being able to get other racials, but at the same time feels like artifacts, LP should be more than that. (there are more artifacts and LP with non racial, but i wish there was more variety)Ive read the rulebook and it looks like a lot of improvements and cool racials over the original i played. But i hope they revise the artifacts and legendary places a bit. Some stuff like racials and artifacts just feel like they couldnt come up with something and just "meeeh"ed it. Traits (that comes next to racial) felt a bit underwhelming as well. There are 20 traits, 8 of them are "if u control X amount this, get X amount points". Examples for racials;*Draenei: Each opponent turn, u dont discard 1 race token when conquered, once per opponentLights Hope Chapel (LP): Draenei's racial, but infinite**Gnome: Once per turn invade any zone as if adjacent, roll the "final conquest dice" for that zone additionallyAshes of Alar (Artifact): Once per turn, invade zone as if adjacent. (No dice)Literally Gnomes better than artifact. (but yes, i get it, its gnome power for non-gnomes, or double gnome for gnomes, but still...)***There are multiple (islands) boards with entry points. U dont just enter board from any edge of it, u have to start from these entry points to enter the board(s) (islands) but u can do it whenever u want by sailing to it (by paying +1 cost) ((if u have a land conquered adjacent to entry point, u just conquer normally, no+1))Sailing (trait): Do not pay +1 sailing cost when traveling to entry pointMeeting Stone (legendary place): Literally the same, and no its not -1 travelling, they are both "no +1 travelling", so they CANT stack upAs i said in tldr, Im conflicted as in i like idea of being able to get other racials, but at the same time feels like artifacts, LP should be more WOW (see what i did there, keh keh) than thatHeres the rulebook for reference: https://ncdn0.daysofwonder.com/small-world-of-warcraft/en/img/sb_rules_en.pdfWhat do you think?
Also im a bit salty about how horde is reduced to conquering (yes i know this isn't a detailed board game, its practically advanced risk, it IS about conquering, but still...)Orcs: Conquer @#$% get pointsTrolls: Conquer !@#$ easier (with -1 difficulty on occupied spaces)Tauren: Double Population (with a small tweak). What do u do with pop? Conquer *!@#Undead: U conquered occupied !@#$? Resurrect pop (i mean, its undead, hard to give it something else:D )The only cool race about horde was goblins imo (Bombs!)In the meantime ally races are INTERESTING. 4 out of 6 ally race is cool (human, gnome, worgen, draenei)Horde IS conquering, yes. but it is also so much more than that. Where is the spiritualism, shamanism, honor, brotherhood, strife? Where is the Horde love blizz? Where is Chris Metzen :P
In the rulebook, they removed the tail of the worgen. I hope they can do this on the box too. I still wish the "islands" would resemble Azeroth landmasses. "Large" could have been Klaimdor and Eastern Kingdoms, "medium" Northrend and Pandaria, "small" Kul Tiras and Zandalar, or Broken Isles
I would have loved an app for this game!
