Small World 2.5 Update is Available!

Introducing Small World 2.5

Featuring an even more refined online game system that delivers the best of both asynchronous and competitive online play, Small World 2.5 now gives you:
  • A full-featured Lobby with real-time chat, list of connected players, game creation and list of open games to join. Within this Online Arena you’ll find a thriving community of avid Small World players ready to play 24/7.
  • New Single-Session Online games – real-time gaming with bots taking over when someone quits. Even better, all games now run with a Speed Chess-like competitive Player clock that controls how much time each player has left to play.
  • Multi-Session Online games – the asynchronous gaming already in Small World 2, but with even more options to control who gets invited, how long your game will last, and a myriad of other options regarding ranked games, karma filtering, starting player selection, and more.
  • We’ve also implemented more of everything: More ranking, persistent in-game chat, chat in the final score screen, and a super detailed statistics screen at the end of each game to analyze how each player performed with various race/power combinations.
  • And last but not least, we now provide a Linux version, included in the same SteamPlay™ package!

Small World 2.5 in Open Beta!

For the past 6 months, we've been hard at work on the next digital version: Small World 2.5. We've added a new "Online Arena" with a live lobby, a list of open games, and full chat capability; support for single-session games, with a new Player Clock for competitive game play; a new Stats screen at game end; improved AI and much more.

Before this new version launches, we want to make sure we got it right, and that it really scales up, so we would like to get as many concurrent players as we can competing against each other in the coming days.

So please come and try it! In your Steam Library, select the game's Steam "Properties", go to the "BETAS" tab and switch to the "beta_version" item.

Make sure you read the explanations on http://www.daysofwonder.com/msg/?th=29279 about the Beta Program. Using the Beta requires that you agree with the terms described in the Beta Program.

We look forward to hearing from you, have fun with the Beta!

Small World 2 stays true to the board game. The graphics and strategies remain. It keeps the game mechanics, so anyone who has played on the table can translate their experience to the game here easily. I chose to buy the online version for a couple reasons:
1) No set up and no accidentally missing or moving pieces.
2) No accidentally mistaking a rule.
3) The online experience lets me play with friends who have moved far away.
If you play German board games or if you like strategy, Small World 2 is fun because there are so many variations on the player’s character choices. You might play trolls or amazons out of habit, but the attributes they have in a given game can completely change the way you play them.

Great adaptation of a great board game thouroghly enjoyed playing it solo and with local friends, Only real issue is a lack of rule customizability (which is definately a word) of the rules and AI as you would get with the sort of house rules in the actual board gamebut still a great board game.

Its a great game, and very enjoyable to play, especially as there are lost of different combinations of races that you can play with or against. You can play against other computer players, or with friends locally or across the world.

Superb translation of the board game. The AI isn't too bad and often provides a good challenge, which is impressive given the number of different races and special powers they can be combined with. The online and local multiplayer options are truly superb. The game isn't without some bugs however, the android version often crashes but works ok when rebooted and the final scores occasionally disappear only to reappear a few days later. This can be quite frustrating when all you want to do is see who won. The DLCs only work on the platform they've been purchased on, so a steam DLC won't work on android or IOS - you can however, continue or join a game started using the DLCs on a platform where you don't own them. The game is great fun, particularly if you like the boardgame but I've introduced it to friends who've never heard of the boardgame and they've loved it too.

Awesome game, plays exactly like the board game and ensures that you won't make any rules mistakes. Random bugs do happen and would love to see a patch. It's totally playable right now and it's a lot of fun.

I enjoy this game. I haven't really had an easy time finding multiplayer games though... This edition has allowed me to correct mistakes I have been making with the rules while playing the board game so it was worth the price of admission for that alone! :)

Decent version of the boardgame experience, although latest version does seem to have some issues playing on fullscreen.

My fiance and I own the board game. This version is faithful, and has a lot of the fun elements of the board game, and plays very quickly versus the computer. The random attributes + race attribute combo keeps it from getting dull, and there seems to be a very active comunity. Additionally, it seems like they are putting all the expansions out as DLC over time, so there's gonna be a lot of content on the horizion. Its a fun time!

Exactly the same board game for the work days between the fysical smelly encounter with your frie....wait. Why do i still meet up with people when I can sit here naked without judgement? Excactly, neither do you! Get this game and laugh at them without ever seeing each other.

Due to the syncing via DaysOfWonder server you can play the same games turn based on android and steam. They sync is instant...man i love the instant sync. Did i mention you can just do a move via the steam client, go to the toilet with your android device in hand and do your next turn on the stairs while breaking your neck? I know what your thinking, easy win for the ranking.

Indeed.

Considering this game was entirely funded by kickstarter.. I was shocked to see the sticker price, and the add on price as well...


But that aside, the gameplay is nice.. When it works... The game is laggy/bugged at an insane level. If you are going over the race/power combo's while your opponent is playing their turn.. it litterally pauses the gameplay.. causing a lag for the other player.

It is as if the developers themselves have not even attempted to play this game. I played enough of it to get my money's worth I guess... But the entire time has been an uphill battle. Game crashes mid turn, have to close/reopen and go to currently running games to resume... It has NOT been a good playing experiance at all.

Nice game with interesting balance, combination and construction
Makes fun with friends

It's a peace game with small world war
Really nice, greatly recommended
