About the Post

Author Information

One of Raine's biggest hobbies has always been gaming. It all started with an Atari and spread out to Yu-Gi-Oh!, Magic: the Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons. As an artist, Raine takes pride in painting models for games as well as making his own terrain. He's also been a writer for many years, working both in the journalism industry and writing pieces of fiction. He decided to create Initiative : Tabletop as a platform to talk about all things gaming that he simply thought were cool, and reviewing games became a part of it!

Two New Smallword Expansions Debut at Essen

Smallword A Spiders Web

At the Essen Game Fair two expansions will debut for the smash-hit board game Smallworld: A Spider’s Web and the previously Kickstarter-only Royal Bonus expansion. In Smallword players choose a race to play as and spread their influence over a map of the game’s world. You’ll control troops, expand your influence across the world, and battle for supremacy to be the one race that comes out ahead of your opponents. These expansions will hit retail shelves in November

A Spider’s Web contains three new races: Ice Witches, Skags, and Slingmen, along with three new Special Powers: Copycat, Lava, and Soul-Touch. This expansion comes complete with a plastic storage tray designed to store all the badges and tokens from A Spider’s Web, plus it includes room for all the additional recent Small World expansions. What’s even better is that the expansion is only $15.

Smallworld Royal Bonus

The Royal Bonus expansion was previously only available to those who backed the Smallworld 2 digital version of the game. It includes three new Race banners and tokens (for the Fauns, Igors, and Shrubmen), and three new Special Power badges (Fireball, Aquatic, and Behemoth). This expansion will be available in print for $12 both at Essen and in retail after the event.

Two more expansions, Necromancer Island and Leaders, which have both been out of print for quite some time, will be available at Essen. The expansions will also be available from the Days of Wonder web store and through your local brick and mortar. If you’re looking for some Smallworld excitement, Essen is sure to deliver what you need!
