Days of Wonder is excited to announce the release of Small World® of Warcraft® today in stores and online, including the Blizzard Gear Store.
Small World® of Warcraft® is a new board game combining the Small World game mechanics with Blizzard Entertainment’s acclaimed Warcraft® universe. The game is set on Blizzard’s fantasy world of Azeroth, where the races of the Alliance and the Horde—including Orcs, Dwarves, Trolls, and Worgen—clash in a world-consuming conflict.
In Small World of Warcraft, players choose combinations of special powers and races from the Warcraft universe, such as Portal Mage Pandaren or Herbalist Goblins, and vie for control of Azeroth. To help them achieve dominance, players will occupy legendary places and seek control of powerful artifacts. However, all empires must eventually fall, so players will have to make hard decisions and allow an overextended race under their control to fall into decline and allow a new one to vie for control of Azeroth.
Days of Wonder worked closely with Blizzard to create a game that seamlessly brings together both universes. Small World of Warcraft features a variety of new and exclusive artwork that captures the feel of the colorful and vibrant Warcraft universe, with races and special powers designed to be familiar to the millions of WoW® players around the world.
“Working alongside Blizzard has been an amazing experience. Not only did our vision for the game align quickly, but the creative work we’ve done together has been intense and extremely satisfying,” said Adrien Martinot, head of Days of Wonder. “Blizzard allowed us to dive deep into the rich Warcraft universe, and I’m eager to see this incredible cooperation come to light with the game’s release.”
