Every Tuesday, UNT Media Library highlights a title from their growing collection of tabletop games. This week, read about: Small World box cover

Small World, Boardgame 47

Number of Players: 2-5
For Ages: 8+
Duration of Play: 40-80
  Why, yes… it IS indeed a small world after all! But please – no singing. And in this tiny world there are 14 different fantasy races, including dwarves, wizards, giants, and orcs! Each player gets to pick a fantasy race as well as a special power, such as Heroic, Berserk, or Alchemist. With a good combination and a bit of luck, players conquer a whole bunch of regions on the board and amass victory coins! Since the world is soooooo small, each player’s civilization will reach a point where it just cannot go any further. There’s no more room! At that point, a player will put that particular civilization in decline, but don’t worry! That’s not the end of the game! Players then get to choose a new fantasy race and super power combo and keep going! The player with the most victory coins when all the turns are over is the winner!

From the publisher:

Small World™ is a fun, zany light-hearted civilization game in which 2-5 players vie for conquest and control of a board that is simply too small to accommodate them all! Picking the right combination of fantasy races and unique special powers, players must rush to expand their empires – often at the expense of their weaker neighbors. Yet they must also know when to push their own over-extended civilization into decline to ride a new one to victory.
