From Board Game Geek:
Small World is a light, fantasy civilization game in which 2-5 players vie for conquest and control of a board that is too small to accommodate them all. Players create combinations from a selection of 14 different fantasy races and 20 unique special powers that they can use to expand their empires across one of 4 board maps. Yet they must also know when to push their own over-extended civilization into decline and ride a new one to victory.

Days of Wonder announces Small World - a slightly-zany, light-hearted civilization game in which 2-5 players vie for conquest and control of a board that is simply too small to accommodate them all!Over the past two weeks we’ve introduced you to the 14 different races who scramble to survive in the unforgiving lands of Small World. Designed by Philippe Keyaerts, as the fantasy follow-up to his award-winning Vinci, Small World is inhabited by this cast of characters - dwarves, wizards, amazons, giants, orcs, humans and more - who use their troops to occupy territory and conquer adjacent lands in order to push the other races off the face of the earth in the hope that they will rise to the top of this brutal land grab!
