home_picture1I picked up a copy of Smallworld this weekend from Days of Wonder. It is basically a fantasy boardgame in which there are too many races and not enough land. The object of the game is to earn the most victory coins by conquering lands, collecting income and keeping other players from doing the same. Races have special powers that give them advantages. Races also are paired with extra powers that are randomly generated, so no two games ever play the same. There are no dice involved; everything is based on unit placement. My wife, two sons and I were able to learn the game and play it to completion in less than four hours. I found the game fun, addictive and am looking forward to playing it again. The components are very high quality and the price at $55 is at the lower end for Eurogames. Highly recommended.
