Today, Days of Wonder announced the upcoming release of Small World – Sky Islands, a new expansion for the award-winning fantasy board game, Small World!
It was a lovely spring morning as the inhabitants of Small World prepared for another day of
conquest. As an archipelago of Sky Islands floated over the horizon, realization dawned at the
same time as the sun. New lands meant new riches!
In Small World – Sky Islands, the newest expansion for Small World, new lands are floating
closer, but the world remains too small—and that’s not going away with the new board featuring
the floating Sky Islands. Each island completely conquered by a single Race will earn additional
coins for that race, but accessing the Sky Islands is not easy. To help the players in their
conquests, this expansion also features an assortment of new and zany races and special
powers, such as the Scavengers, created by Sam Iam Lasseter, or the impressive Storm
Giants, created by T. Alex Davis. To sort them all, a storage tray is included in this expansion.
“This additional board adds a whole new twist to the game and offers very challenging tactical
options,” says Adrien Martinot, General Manager at Days of Wonder. “Will you fight for access
and control to the Sky Islands, or let your opponents battle for the Sky Islands bonuses while
you’re comfortably established on solid ground?” he continues.
Small World – Sky Islands is an expansion for 3 to 6 players. It includes a double-sided board, 7
Fantasy Race banners, 94 Matching Race tokens, 4 Lost Tribe tokens, 5 Zeppelin/Burning
Region tokens, 5 Trade Pact tokens, 3 transformed Drakon tokens, 2 Lightning Bolt tokens, 2
Cannon tokens, 2 Access point to Sky Islands tokens, 1 “END” token, 1 Summary Sheet, a rules
booklet, and a storage tray. This expansion is scheduled to be available at Essen and shortly
after in Europe, followed by a early December release in North America.
