Days of Wonder is excited to announce its first collaboration with Blizzard Entertainment and presents Small World of Warcraft, a new board game that combines the mechanics of Small World with Blizzard Entertainment’s celebrated Warcraft universe.
As revealed at BlizzCon® 2019, Small World of Warcraft takes place in the fictional world of Azeroth, where the Alliance and Horde races (including orcs, dwarves, trolls, and Worgen) face off in a world-scale conflict.
In Small World of Warcraft, players combine special powers and races from the Warcraft universe, such as Pandaren portal wizards or goblin herbalists, and compete for control of Azeroth. To achieve full domination, players will occupy legendary terrain and seek to control powerful artifacts. However, all empires fall sooner or later, so players will need to be prepared to put an overly extended race into a “Decline” state and lead a new one to rule Azeroth.
Days of Wonder has worked closely with Blizzard to create a game that perfectly reflects both universes. Small World of Warcraft features exclusive new art that captures the colorful and vibrant universe of Warcraft, with races and special powers designed to be familiar to the millions of WoW® players around the world who have explored the far reaches of Azeroth.
“Working with Blizzard has been an incredible experience. Not only did our visions of the game quickly align, but the creative work we’ve done together has been intense and extremely satisfying, ”said Days of Wonder director Adrien Martinot,“ Blizzard allowed us to immerse ourselves in the rich universe of Warcraft, and I’m looking forward to this incredible collaboration coming to light when the game launches. ”
