A new expansion for the fantasy battle game Small World is scheduled to be available in late June or early July, according to publisher Days of Wonder. Small World: Tales & Legends adds 54 large-format event cards to the game; one card is revealed at the start of each turn (except the first).
The revealed card changes the rules of the game for that turn. For example, Blood Brothers makes it easier to attack the player on your right, Magic is in the Air gives a bonus to players occupying magic regions, and The Great Curse renders special powers useless. Players can also see the next event, so they know what faces them on the next turn. Two blank cards are included, enabling players to create their own events.
Small World: Tales & Legends was created by Laurent Verrier, the Special Prize Winner of last fall's Small World design contest. Philippe Keyaerts, the original game's designer, provided development assistance. The expansion, which requires a copy of the original Small World to play, should sell for about $15/€12.
