Days of wonder has announced their newest expansion for Small World "A Spiders Web" with this expansion comes three new races (Ice Witches, Skags, and Slingmen) and three new special powers (Copycat, Lava, and Soul-Touch). This expansion also features a plastic storage tray which allows for storage of all the badges and tokens from not just "A Spiders Web" but all of the recent expansions for the game. Additionally they are releasing the "Royal Bonus" expansion which until this point only be available through their Small World 2 Kickstarter campaign. This expansion also features three new races (Fauns, Igors, and Shrubmen) and three new powers (Fireball, Aquatic, and Behemoth). Finally two long out of print mini expansions will be coming back into print. Necromancer Island
In Necromancer Island, one of the players assumes the role of a dreaded Necromancer who inhabits an island in the center of Small World's central Lake region. He captures the souls of all Race tokens lost to conquests, using them to progressively spawn Ghosts who invade the surrounding Regions. To make matters worse, his Powers grow as his reach across the land increases. If the Necromancer succeeds in bringing all of his Ghosts into play, anytime before the game's end, he wins!and Leaders of Small World
The expansion consists of 24 leader tokens that are neither a race nor a power. When you pick a new race, you can opt to buy its leader. The leader acts as an additional race token. The leader, however, disappears as soon as the race goes into decline. Also, the leader is brave, which means that he can only be staying at regions that are not immune. Leaders can be held hostage for ransom. If the ransom is not paid, the leader counts as two victory points at the end of the game for the player that captured the leader.All of these expansions will be available from retailers starting in November and "A Spiders Web" and "Royal Bonus" will be available at Essen.
