Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Small World - Tales and Legends introduces 54 new Event cards that change the storyline of each turn during the game. Event cards are organized into 6 different themes each with its own unique flavor. The cards are also rated by their impact on the game: Little Lore cards have only a minor effect; Tall Tales have worldly consequences; and Lordly Legends are guaranteed to turn your Small World upside down! At the start of each turn (except the first) a new event card is drawn and put into play. The next Upcoming Event is also visible so players know what faces them on the next turn. Will you end up drinking the Philter of Forgetfulness be flung from the Great Catapult or even have a chance to seduce the White Queen?

I had so much fun playing it with friends and family.

This expansion adds a deck of cards that are events that can occur throughout the game to change the rules for a round.

I have tried all the expansions for Smallworld and this is by far my favorite.

There isn't much to this expansion, just 54 event cards. The cards add a minor variation each turn from a victory point bonus for holding a certain type of region to fairly dramatic changes like forcing everyone into decline. One of the nice aspects of this expansion is that the cards are grouped by type and severity of event and you have the option to create an event deck that is restricted to or remove some types of events. You can start with just the little changes to get a feel for the system before opening it up to all possibilities. If you like the dramatic, you can just build a deck of the big events.

The events can be quite radical and knock a player out of the lead but our group finds them a great addition to the game. It's a good value and a good investment.

Having read many reviews, it became clear that there are not many expansions for Smallworld which are worth having, but this one was clearly the most positively received. So we bought it, and I can happily say that it is an enjoyable addition to the game. It's only a pack of cards, but each event, as they unfold per round, throws a new dimension into the Smallworld game. Some completely toss everything into the air (such as - "Pass your active race to the player to your left"); some are quite minor (such as "The forest regions count as an additional victory coin this turn"). Our kids prefer playing it with the Upcoming and Current Events shown, so you have warning and can prepare for the next event that will happen. I prefer playing "blind", ie each event is revealed as it happens, with no warning, which adds extra excitement! Either way, if you're getting a Smallworld expansion, I'd recommend this one. I didn't give it 5 stars because my only issue with it is that some of the events aren't entirely clearly explained and you have to work out for yourself how to carry them out.

I have tried all the expansions for Smallworld and this is by far my favorite. Every time we play with these cards the game is a different experience. The deck can be broken up by the grandeur of the events or can be played with all cards. The tide of the game can change after any event, so no one is assured victory until the last moment. I no longer have games where someone wins by a large margin, usually we have to fight and scheme for every last victory point.

First off, this works well for both Small World AND Small World Underground as long as you know you can (and agree to) substitute terrain types.

"The following features are considered equivalent concerning their interaction with powers:
-- Black Mountains / Mountains
-- Mudpools / Marshes
-- Mushroom Forests / Forests
-- Mines / Mine symbols
-- Mystic Crystals / Magic Symbols
-- Rivers / Seas & Lake"

so if you draw a card that says "all forests produce one less token" you count it against mushroom forests instead.

Second, if you want more variety in the gameplay then this can provide it, but I'd first advocate getting Small World: Be Not Afraid, Small World: Cursed! and even Small World: Grand Dames first (in that order) because adding a few races and special powers can add infinitely more diversity to play while not adding that extra level of complexity to the game. At least for me and my friends, the cards are just one game mechanic too many and the game is already different enough every game with 83,668,255,425,284,801,560,576 combinations for Small World, 4,987,885,095,119,476,318,359,375 combinations for Underground and WAY more for both games if you have any expansions.

Its not a bad expansion-- you should just pick up the other expansions first and play them for a few months before adding this.
+The artwork is GREAT and fits well with the game's style.

I absolutely love Smallworld! I had so much fun playing it with friends and family. I got all the expansions, including this (Tales and Legends). This expansion adds so much to the game. You tend to play a little differently to be strategic in whats coming next. Days of Wonder really puts a lot of time and effort into their products and it shows. The art on the cards is amazing. And the different game changing events on the cards adds a different level to the game without taking any of the fun of Smallworld away. In fact, it makes it a lot more fun. I would highly recommend getting card protectors for the cards if you play a lot and want them to last. You can find a pattern online to make the box a little bigger to fit the cards when they're in the plastic holders (because they won't fit in the original box if you put them in holders). Overall, this is a great addition to the already amazing Smallworld and just makes the game all the more fun and intriguing.

Now the game has a little bit more unknown factors. This is a good thing, especially for two player. This expansion adds a deck of cards that are events that can occur throughout the game to change the rules for a round. You always have one turn advanced notice of an event so you can plan ahead.

So what this means is that you will have additional opportunities and pitfalls to avoid that might help you out.
