When Small World 2 functions properly, it's a fun and faster incarnation of its tabletop predecessor. The game is arguably easier to play than its tabletop incarnation because it prevents players from making invalid moves and sometimes indicates possible moves. It also makes it easier for players to keep track of numbers like turns and quantities of troops. The game also captures the aesthetic of Small World very well, and actions are played out rather pleasantly. However, the game crashes or bugs-out frequently. The game is locked at one specific resolution, which cannot be changed (except by maximizing the window, which may sometimes result in letterboxing). There are no settings options whatsoever, aside from game volume and music volume. And finding a game online is horrendous because creating and joining games is tedious, and that's if there's even anyone online to play with (which there more often than not, is not). Many of the UI elements can be confusing, especially since the tooltips (when functional) aren't always informative. Parts of the UI, particularly text, will even change the game's cursor to the system or text cursor, making the entire game feel cheap and poorly made. One would expect many of these issues to be solved, or at least addressed, shortly after the game's release, but since at the time I'm typing this the game has been released for over a year, I believe that it's safe to say that these issues will not be addressed any time soon, if at all. The entire game feels like a half-♥♥♥♥♥ money grab, and despite the genuine entertainment it may provide, albeit in small amounts, I cannot recommend this game while these issues continue to exist.

A Small World 2 is the digital adaptation of the popular board game A Small World. Simply put a Small World 2 is a huge land grab that requires a decent amount of thought and strategy. It also has a great tutorial for beginners and multiple game modes. (Solo, Pass’nplay, Local game, and online arena) Along with multiple game modes, it allows for 2-5 player in most game modes. Small World 2 also has three dlc that add different and cool races/combos. Small World 2 is very fun, but the only thing that really bothers me about this game is that it is very obvious that the game is made for mobile devices. This is not a huge issue, but this is very obvious and I thought it should be said.

  • Fun gameplay
  • Addictive
  • Requires some strategy to win
  • Great AI opponents
  • Skipable AI turns
  • Plenty of Race/combos
  • Online gameplay
  • Local Co-op


  • Made for tablet/phone (Pass and play mode)
  • No full screen mode
  • Some overpowered combos


Small World 2 is a great game that is fun to play with friends and even the AIs. The dlcs adds diversity to the race/combo selection. With all the different game modes and different races/combos to play with/against, I highly recommend Small World 2 to anyone that wants to have fun with friends or just by themselves. Small World 2 is a great adaptation the real life board game Small World.

This is a fun board game, and I thought I would give it a go with some friends online, but playing online games with friends is extremely buggy with non stop connection and "authenticating" issues.

2/10 Buy the board game, it will run smoother and have more graphical options.
Tutorial video won't run. Despite having no idea what the game was about, I managed to win a few games by randomly clicking on stuff.
It crashed.
It crashed a lot.
It's a port of a mobile version of a board game. Which gives you all the thrills of broken drivers, low resolution graphic, no options, and a game lacking any real life or depth. Nor does the game require any skill, strategy or basic knowledge of what you're doing, s you can beat it by just blindly guessing what it's about.

I like this game. it is true that it can be difficult to find online opponents, but i find i play alot of single player anyway. With small children at my house, I often have to walk away in the middle of the game. The AI is not bad, I enjoy it.

Tried to start the tutorial and got directly a message that I would need Flash Player (this is bad - but even worse: Flash Player is even installed). Without the tutorial it's not really clear what someone has to do (unlike games like Super Mario or so, which you just play and get it while playing). So yeah, I'm just happy I didn't pay for it (it was part of some bundle). In general it looks a lot like it was never meant for PC and is jsut ported without any ambition to PC to sell it there, too.

I would definetely not recommend this game and won't even waste the HDD space for it anymore.

I don't own the boardgame of this yet but a couple of my friends and I spent several hours playing last night and well play many more in the future. A charming game that is much deeper than its whimsical appearance may suggest with a lot of replayability despite the (at least currently) singular map.

I would love to see more expansions for it, especially the modular map, to come to the PC version and more races and powers means more options and crazy combos. Some of these combinations were laugh out loud funny (flying ghouls, peace-loving barbarians, etc.) so even more of these would enhance the game immensely.

It needs a fullscreen option and we had some minor hiccups getting our games set up (invite friends and bots, the go button wouldn't light up everytime, had to go back to the previous menu then select current MP game and then the button worked) but we encountered no other bugs.

Essentially the objective it to hoard the most coins by fulfilling victory conditions while placing race tokens to conquer land. All races are matched with a power that modifies what they do and helps determine how many tokens you have to use for attack and defense. As your race spreads out it becomes harder to expand anymore so you will usually have to go into a decline and select a new race/power combo. A race in decline will normally be left weak and unable to do much but still accrues coins for you. These race/power combos are on the right side of the screen and you can take the top one or skip down for penalites if a combo isn't to your liking. Players take turns conquering and reinforcing, trying to get more coins than anyone else to win at the end of the last turn.

There's a lot of subtle strategy involved in both the races inherent abilities but also in the power they are attached too and how many tokens they can get. Pushing your self thin can net a lot of early coins but if the others gang up on you it can backfire and some races are much better at this than others. Knowing if and when to go into decline and when to take or skip a race/power combo as well as when and where to attack and is that last possible understrength attack worth risking that die roll for(?) combine to make it an excellent game. Highly recommended.

Enjoyable little game.
Not a lot there to hold your interest in the long term but a game only takes 20mins so it's a nice pickup timewaster.
Certainly worth grabbing on sale

Ich bin ein riesiger Brettspielefan und habe mich sehr auf Small World als PC Umsetzung gefreut. Natürlich war ich von Tag 1 bei Kickstarter mit an Bord für diese Umsetzung und um so mehr bin ich nun enttäuscht, dass diese Umsetzung sehr lieblos ist und für die Leistung ein viel zu hoher Preis verlangt wird. Im Spiel selbst sieht man, dass das Spiel grundsätzlich für das Tablets entwickelt wurde und die PC Version einfach nur eine Convertierung ist. Alles in allem, die wohl schlechteste Brettspielumsetzung auf PC, die ich je gesehen habe :(

Ich bin ein echter Fan des Brettspiels und vielleicht deswegen so enttäuschtv on Small World 2, also der PC-Adaption.

Das Spielprinzip wurde 1 zu 1 übertragen. Auch sind die mittlerweile drei Erweiterungen implementiert, jedoch in der Standardversion des Spiels nicht enthalten. Stattdessen muss Geld für die Erweiterungen als DLC gezahlt werden. Schade.

Die Umsetzung im Singeplayer ist gelungen. Die KI spielt mehr oder weniger logisch und krankt nur selten als groben Fehlzügen. Soweit bin ich zufrieden. Auch die Steuerung spielt sich mehr oder weniger intuitiv. Gelegentlich wähle ich versehentlich eine Rasse aus, die ich nicht wollte oder vergesse meine Lager, Festungen etc. zu setzen. Das sind aber durch Konditionierung abstellbare Problempunkte.

Leider krankt das Spiel an einigen Bugs. Mehr als einmal ist es mir passiert, dass ich die Rassenliste nicht mehr sehen konnte. FÜr die Entscheidung ob Untergang oder Nicht ist das tragisch. Hinzu kommen einige Schwierigkeiten beim Matchmaking, sowie gelegentliche Spielabstürze.

Die grafische Präsentation ist gelungen, übernimmt aber zu 100% die Präsentation des Brettspiels. Ganz gegenteilig stellt sich der Sound dar. Scheinbar hatten die Entwickler ein einziges Musikstück auf der Platte.

Größtes Manko der PC-Umsetzung ist aber das Online-Matchmaking. Suche ich Online nach Spielern kann es durchaus einige Minuten dauern, bis ich einen zweiten Spieler gefunden habe. Das ist schade, zumal die Spieldauer durch die automatische Berechnung der Punkte stark verkürzt ist (etwa 15 Minuten bei 2 Spielern, 30-40 Minuten bei 4 Spielern). Viel schlimmer ist aber, dass es fast unmöglich ist, genügend Mitspieler für ein 3 oder mehr-Spiel zu finden. Hier hilft nur eins: Gezielt Gegner im 1on1 anschreiben, "Freundschaften" schließen und dann genauso gezielt Spiele zu dritt, viert oder fünft starten. Dann funktioniert es.

Auch ärgerlich ist, dass es immer wieder Spieler gibt, die das Spiel einfach gefrustet verlassen. Da jage ich im 1on1 jemanden mit unerschrockenen Ghulen und Diplomaten Rattenmenschen vom Feld und er geht einfach. Im Übrigen: Die Balancing Schwächen des Brettspiels sind natürlich ebenfalls vorhanden.

Alles in allem eine eher schwache PC-Umsetzung auf Browserspielniveau. Ich hoffe, dass wenigstens das Problem des Matchmakings behoben wird. Wenn das "Schnelle Spiel" nicht funktioniert, dann halt ein Lobby/Host System.

Ein supergutes Brettspiel als PC Version gut umgesetzt. Es gibt kleinere Fehler, die stören könnten. Kein Vollbildschirm und keine Möglichkeit über einen Button das Spiel zu beenden (nur über das Kreuz). Aber eine gute KI und eine gute Grafik, die Möglichkeit über Multiplayer mit anderen Mitspielern online spielen zu können, lassen die Fehler als nicht so wichtig erscheinen. Wie ich gelesen habe, gibt es Probleme mit den DLC: Aus diesem Grund habe ich sie noch nicht dazu gekauft. Wer strategische Brettspiele mag, ist mit diesem Spiel aber letztlich wirklich gut bedient.

My review is becoming riddled with updates, as the developer has been fixing stuff. Rather than keep trying to patch it, I'm just going to add my latest thoughts up here.

They've been very good about fixing issues quickly, and in particular the fact that it no longer pauses or resets when it loses focus is a massive improvement. There are some lingering issues related to the game's touch-interface-heritage (e.g. the requirement to drag tokens around, rather than being able to just click on a spot), but overall I'm much more satisfied with it now.

To be honest, I still don't heartily endorse it at the current quality and price (especially considering the price of DLC), but the steam rating system requires a thumbs up or a thumbs down and I think it narrowly makes the cut. Hypothetically, it should only get better from here.

I also should mention that at the moment, my review says 164 of 197 people (83%) found this review helpful. Those ratings were from before these updates, when I was giving the game a thumbs down, and that negative review. Hopefully my review is still helpful, but I don't want those people to feel like I hijacked their endorsements or something.

------ Mostly-original review below ------

Board games are my thing. I have almost 500 board games, and Small World is one of my favorites. I even kicked in for the collector's edition in the kickstarter that brought Small World 2.

And... I can't recommend this. Besides being overpriced (the Android version is $10; no idea what DLC costs for Android), it's really poorly designed for PC.

Doing everything requires dragging tokens from one place to another, which would be fine on a touch display but is a huge hassle with a mouse.

The game pauses if it ever loses focus, which means you can't browse the web and such during the computer's turn. Also, if you're playing an online game, and you leave the window's focus, even if it's played every other player's turn for you and it's your turn now, the game rewinds and plays back every turn again. What the hell?!

UPDATE: Quick play is now working, although the sub-minute estimates are quite optimistic. Took me a couple minutes to find a game. I'd previously written that only quick play wasn't working at all (and it wasn't, at the time).

There's support for a friends list, but it uses Days of Wonders' servers to manage your friends. There's no way of seeing your steam friends, as far as I can tell, which is particularly baffling since it already goes out of its way to tie your steam account to a Days of Wonder account.

That said, the quick play issues is the only real 'bug' I've encountered in the hour or so I've had it. All the other problems I have with it are design issues. Technically, it runs well. There's no full screen option, but the window resizes smoothly to whatever size you want (including maximizing).

I'm enjoying it, but I've already sunk the money for it. I don't recommend purchasing it until at the very least the online issues are ironed out, and ideally some more thought is put into how the game should work on PC differently from tablets.

UPDATE: Match making for online quick play is working now

The core small worlds game is fun and a lot of people want to see a computerized version of it to play online with friends. However it's quite expensive for what you get, only took half a year to make and the DLC option is an insult to any other passionate developer that works his ♥♥♥ off to go that extra mile who truely deserves it. Back in my day DLC was called an expansion pack and it was worth every penny. Here we have a set of simple and over priced DLC packs on day 1, something alreay made & a number of fans could poop out in an afternoon if they spent that time to support mods. OK, It's understandable that a company seeks to maximize profits but this developer goes a little too far with asking consumers to purchase an aditional andriod version even after they have brought the PC one. Not sure if that also requires purchasing the DLC twice but its deserves critisim because the combined price tage is approaching a tripple A title.

As for the quality of the game itself, there are a few bugs with it. The race descriptions don't always render properly, it appears to use flash/html pages for that and suffer from a font issue on my machine. I also caused the game to freeze when attempting to read the rules as the bots were taking their turn. There are limited graphical options for resolution & sound. All said and done, its entertaining for an hour or so but for that price I think you can find something else that will keep you going for far longer.

*update* Some parts of the game looks nice, but the quality of developement feels rushed in how it responds, the screen doesn't scale well in places.

The application must also be active at all times to play multiplayer otherwise you get a re authorization message followed by the turn replaying itself from start which means no browsing on your 2nd monitor to pass the time and even reading the in game rules causes this issue to occur. I like the game but the quality could be better.

I own the board game and most of the expansions, and my kids and I love it. This is a pretty faithful digital version. My son digitally crushed me twice in a row last night, and it took less time than it would have to play one game with the physical board game. We were pleased that it clarified a couple of rules that were not clear (to us) previously. The art is in keeping with Small World art, although the graphics don't scale well when maximized on a wide screen. Touch functionality is awesome, and using a mouse is not nearly as bad as some other reviewers have suggested. The AI is not 100% there: I've had AI opponents walk all over me, but I've also had an AI opponent play an entire game with their first-turn pick of Hordes of Amazons... Online play, Solo, and Pass 'n' Play all worked like a charm. I've had it crash out of the game twice during solo play, but I expect that will get ironed out in the near future. Overall, I believe it's worth the price for the base game and the DLC. I would really like to see Tales and Legends DLC.

Very buggy, but at least gets the gameplay right. A problem occurs when you are in two games and it asks you if you want to switch. If it is your turn in both, it will take you through all of the other players' moves, even though they already went, and then if you switch to the other game, and back again, you have to watch all of those players' moves yet again before you can go, all the while everyone can't understand why you won't take your turn. Lots of crashes and disconnected player in multiplayer.

I'm still of mixed minds about this game. I've watched let's play on youtube and Wil Wheaton's Table Top review of it, and it looked like a lot of fun. Thing is, I haven't had time to play this with others yet, and I wanted to really Learn the game first, so I've been playing only solo matches against the AI so far. I expect when I finally start playing with others, I may like the game even more.

Basically this is a conquest board game for 2 to 5 players, any of which may be live opponents or AI. A typical match shouldn't take even as much as a half hour and that's With the full complement of players. The game rules and procedure resemble Risk somewhat, though in a fantasy setting rather than the real world. It's all about conquering the world, though with a twist; your 'army' only has a short lifespan and will inevitably be replaced by another army that you also control. The goal is to build up gold units that you earn primarily at the end of your turn for holding territory, but also through special abilities your armies might have. The armies are very diverse and represent fantasy races, from hobbits to skeletons, giants, and dwarves. You get to pick which race you want to make 'active' but their abilities are randomized each game.

Strong replayability is built right in as no two games will ever play alike. The graphics are decent, though the game map/board is a little 'busy' with all of the counters, symbols, borders, and artwork vying for space and That can make things a little confusing at times. The music is fun and matches the light hearted tone set by the art style.

I don't have any major complaints, though I'm not fond of the nickle and dime aspect of the DLC. It'd be nice if the developers had just bundled the dlcs rather than parcelled them out as they did, but I'm guessing it had something to do with rewards for the kickstarter investors.

TL:DR? Bottom line, if you like board games that involve a good portion of luck, you should enjoy this. It's easy to learn the basics but has enough 'meat' to make you want to invest some time in mastering the strategies.

Type of Game:

Virtual Board Game

Version Played:

PC version through Steam

Similar Games:

Settlers of Catan, Risk, and to a lesser degree Monopoly

The Good:

An exact replica of the board game version, which means that the players get the same engrossing and competitive game they would play on a board
A wonderful multiplayer game (when it works – see below) that balances different strategy mechanics
Race and special power cards can really change the way that each gaming session is played and will also change the player’s choices
It is really nice not having to pull out all the physical pieces of the game to play a quick round with a friend
Being able to play against other players on different platforms ( iPad, Android, & Kindle Fire) is a definite plus
“Turn-by-turn” is a neat feature that lets players play their turns without having all players present. You can exit the game and continue at a later time once your opponent has finished their turn
Steam has a notification pop up when it’s the player’s turn

The Bad:

The online multiplayer is bugged and glitchy, which leads to dropped games and nonstarters
Seeing as most players will be picking up this game to play with friends, it seems as if it could have done with some more quality assurance testing in the online multiplayer department
The overall user interface is clunky and not very intuitive
Trying to get a game going has far too many steps and the lengthy registration requirements seem unnecessary
Sound design is awful and really could have helped with the immersion should some decent music and sound effects been utilized

Can you play it while the children are awake?:

Absolutely. Had a good time playing locally with my seven year old.

Did I make time to complete it?:

I played and finished five multiplayer games. I would have played a lot more, had the online multiplayer not had so many issues.

Recommended Purchase Price:

The gameplay is a blast just like the board game, but the online problems really hinder the overall experience. I applaud Days of Wonder for implementing the oft-requested feature for video game versions of board games (so many come out with just local play), but just wish they’d spent more time fixing the infrastructure before releasing the game.

Great boardgame gets a great videogame treatment! Local multiplayer makes a great alternative to getting out the box and playing tabletop when kids are around to grab at the 100+ pieces in the game.

As for the game itself:
It's a Risk-esque territory accumulation game, set in a fantasy world, but without the massive luck based elements of risk. Over the course of the game you'll control different factions (elves, orcs, sorcerers, etc.) all with different attributes that tweak the core rules. Each faction gets assigned a random special ability like flying, berserking or dragon master that further tweaks the rules.

Each territory requires 2 soldiers to conquer, with 1 additional required for each additional factor like terrain, fortifications or opponents troop occupation. Eventually your troops will wear thin and you'll have to put your active race in decline; all but one troop in each location is removed from the board. You still collect points for those territories; but special abilities & troop movement are no longer an option. At the start of your next turn you'll be able to select a new faction.

Play continues for 10 rounds with points being accumulated for each territory you control at the end of each turn. It's fast paced, with fun art and concept; and also scales very well. It supports 2-5 players, but has a different sized game board depending on how many people are playing!

I have to chime in, this game has massive problems. There are a huge number of users who can't even start the game, and the dev has done little to address it with the latest patch. What can I do when I can't even start the game after owning it for a month?
