I'm rating this a 10 if you're a hardcore fan of Small World. I've played the base sets with no expansions with 4 and 6 players and loved how you can play the two together. At first we thought the one who started in Underground had the advantage due to getting relics and places. We soon relized that this was not completly the case. It seems to balance out in the long run and lots of fun to play. The 6 players will make the game longer but with the right group who cares..... Yeah, this isn't a mind blowing expansion, it's just a great way to allow the two base sets to be played together.

If you're not a hardcore fan of the game and just like it playing once in awhile it'll be a 6-7. Do to you wont like the extra set up time and the extra time added to game play.

I really like combining the SW surface & underground maps. It increases the movement possibilities. However, it seems as though the board is too spacious.

It's great, that there is an opportunity to join the two worlds. Of course, because of that some situations must be houseruled, however the result is quite interesting.

Labai gerai, kad buvo suteikta galimybė sujungti du pasaulius. Žinoma, kartais reikia vos ne patiems susitarti dėl taisyklių, bet viso to rezultatas gana įdomus.

If you have both Small World and Underground. This is a must get expansions which make you have more different map and you can mix all races together. That's lots of fun
And I like the easy setup, not like Realm which spend too long setup time.

Designed to link Small World to Small World: Underground, this makes the board essentially twice the size, so I wouldn't recommend it unless you're playing with the maximum number of players.

Not as revolutionary and brilliant as it is thematically pleasing, but it's a nice way to connect up the varied boards, and allow the races and powers of the two games to commingle in a way that doesn't involve simply leaving out irrelevant things — because they all can be relevant.

I don't own the "official" version of the game. I just use markers from Labyrith to mark the tunnels. (I printed out the rules.)

I really like the gameplay, though it's a bit more fiddly than the original game.

I got this with my copy of Small World Underground. Wasn't expecting it but it does make me slightly more likely to pick up the original game now. Was probably going to buy it anyway.

Edit: And now that I have both these are used in almost every game.

Good concept, nice components. The rules get a little iffy, and I don't understand why they didn't just say "Here are the things to watch out for" right in the rules, in regards to compatibility. But it does its job well enough.

The only reason this exists is so that you can combine Small World and Small World Underground. Doing so is a blast though, so I'm glad Days of Wonder took the time to make this expansion work.

This expansion seems to be given to us "by popular demand." While the concept is neat and well-executed, is it really necessary? You can play a 6-player game on one map... and while Tunnels allows for more, a 7+ player game of Small World would have tremendously long downtime, especially when you're just waiting around so you can send your race into decline and wait some more. There's a reason Small World was designed for 5 players max.

I'm tempted to try Tunnels with 4 players (two 2-player boards) just to see how it goes, but it's not something I feel is a "must have" expansion.

Obtained free from DoW, November 2011.

The idea is nice: you can combine your both stand-alone games Small World & Small World Underground. But set-up takes a long time, it is mess taking the right tokens and sorting out everything after the game is also anoying.

It is what it is. In and of itself, nothing special but it does allow an excellent way to link the two boards. It will become an integral component as we really enjoyed the mix of boards.

While this is an interesting variant, I don't think I will try this too often. Set up and tear down is a pain in the arse and the gameplay is a little bit more complicated as you try to remember the conversions between underground and original.

Not really a balanced way to mix the two Small World games. As far as I can tell, the Underground relics become way too clustered on th original Small World board. Might remove the relics in future plays, especially in games with more than 4 players where the playing time starts to become way too long.
Overall, I cant complain too much about a free expansion, and it IS nice to have the option to mix these two great games, but I think I'll pass on using this little variant most of the time.

rather inessential. Didn't make the game any more interesting, at least with two; combining the sets just meant more of a hassle putting everything away.

They could have done a better job marking the related Terrain between the two boards. It works but looking up/remembering the similar Terrain is a bit awkward and all the combinations raise more rules questions. Disappointing they could not handle this better but ok for a once in awhile mix up.
