Designed by Small World’s creator Phillipe Keyaerts, Small World of Warcraft combines the same core mechanics with the races and world of Azeroth, drawing from the lore of the MMORPG World of Warcraft. Like the original 2009 game (see “‘Small World’ from Days of Wonder”), players combine races like Pandaren, Goblins, or Worgen with various special powers such as Portal Mage or Herbalist to create unique blends of abilities. These kingdoms then expand across the map before ultimately going “into decline” to be replaced by new, rising powers.

Small World has been a critical and popular success from its launch, winning numerous awards including a spot on the Spiel des Jahres “recommended” list and the Game of the Year title in Games Magazine (see “‘Small World’ Takes Game of the Year”) as well as spawning numerous expansions and stand-alone alternative versions.
