Small World Design Contest

This is pretty cool! Days of Wonder is having a design contest for Small World. Many of us had already assumed that there would be some kind of expansion for the game and it does indeed look like the company has plans for this.

I have already discussed my basic feelings of Small World and my opinion of the game hasn’t changed too much since then. It didn’t end up being the smash hit I had hoped it might but it certainly has not been sent to the basement or, even worse, the attic (heh, just like in Dollhouse, the attic is a scary place).

I expect they will receive a ton of entries for this contest and unfortunately, given the design space, many will likely end up being similar. Still, it seems like something pretty fun to play around with and who wouldn’t love the grand prize – a trip to Essen?
