There’s already a WoW board game, and it’s fine, but Blizzard is teaming up with Days of Wonder to release another one, this time pitched at a quicker, breezier end of the market.

It’s called Small World of Warcraft, and is a licensed reskin of 2009's Small World, a game about a world that is too small for a bunch of competing fantasy races, who then go to war to try and take over the whole place. Between the premise and the name, it’s a wonder it took them 11 years to come up with this idea.

It looks great! I mean, Small World is already a very good game, and so really all that’s left to judge here is the application of the license, which seems a perfect fit, and look at the art, which also looks fantastic.

Small World of Warcraft is coming sometime in the Summer.

Man, Blood Elves still don’t really fit on the Horde. They kinda did back in BC, when they were magic sucking vampires, but that was resolved oh so quickly, and now they’re just “Alliance, but on Horde!”
