We love it when video games and tabletop games collide, and this new reveal from Days of Wonder on the upcoming ‘Small World of Warcraft‘ has us excited!
A new day dawns on Azeroth. A day like every one before it, and every one after. A day of merciless struggle for the control of the World of Warcraft. Not only is this Small World territory far too tight for everyone, it also hosts the never-ending conflict between the factions of the Alliance and the Horde. Dawn has broken and the time has come to take your place on the front lines.https://www.daysofwonder.com/small-world-of-warcraft/en/
Small World of Warcraft is a stand-alone board game set in Blizzard’s glorious video game universe, Azeroth. 2-5 players vie for control of several islands in this hostile world and their only hope will be to pick the right combination of races and special powers. After staking your claim to a piece of land, defeat your neighbors and expand your territory. If you can occupy legendary places and control powerful magical artifacts, you’ll reach new levels of domination. However, empires must eventually fall, so be ready to put your over-extended race into decline and lead a new one to glory so you can eventually rule Azeroth.https://www.daysofwonder.com/small-world-of-warcraft/en/

Designed by Small World’s creator Phillipe Keyaerts, Small World of Warcraft combines the same core mechanics with the races and world of Azeroth, drawing from the lore of the MMORPG World of Warcraft. Like the original 2009 game (see “‘Small World’ from Days of Wonder”), players combine races like Pandaren, Goblins, or Worgen with various special powers such as Portal Mage or Herbalist to create unique blends of abilities. These kingdoms then expand across the map before ultimately going “into decline” to be replaced by new, rising powers.
The game will feature exclusive new artwork inspired by the Warcraft universe, drawing on the deep lore of that game setting to inspire the races and special powers in the game. The game includes 6 double-sided game boards, 16 race banners and 20 special power badges, 182 race tokens, 15 Murloc tokens, 5 player sheets, 180 other tokens and markers, 1 custom die, 1 game turn track with marker. The game is intended for 2 to 5 players, and includes variant rules for team play in addition to the standard free-for-all scenario. Games take about an hour to play. MSRP is $59.99.
