New Small World expansion has the river running through it

After going without expansions for two years now, Small World  is back with another new map for 2 to 5 players.  Aptly named Small World: River World, this new map features rivers running all over the map, making capturing water areas vital to any strategy.  In addition to the new maps you now have pirates to contend with as well as your opponents, so you will have to be extra careful.  Toss in some new event tiles themed around the new map and you have a decent expansion for this evergreen game.  Check out Days of Wonder’s blog post for more information, and look for it to hit stores in November, or you can pick up a copy while at Essen.
