While World of Warcraft is recognizable to gamers, Smallworld is a no less recognizable name to boardgamers, and now the two has been combined.
The game is based on the original Small World, but set in Azeroth and will let players conquer terrirory in the popular game world.
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.
Small World is said to be an easy boardgame to get into for 2-5 players. It will retail at $59.99 and will be available sometime this summer.
