This adds to the game what I thought it lacked: strategic positions. Now the races and powers are thought if in terms of their relation to the strategic points, as well as conquering regions and other races in general. Excellent, excellent expansion, however I will dock points for the USELESS font that marks the letters on the tiles. SWEET XENU WHY

Also: the rulebook NEEDS CLARIFICATIONS. Some of the scenarios do not mention how to treat water and are generally unclear and have extremely short descriptions. Otherwise this would be very close to a 10.

This adds excellent replay value; however, setup time rises from very short to quite significant — especially if you're setting up one of the scenarios. On the other hand, the scenarios have been playtested….

I was really happy with this expansion. I love Small World, but it lacked something to make it more replayable, especially with only two or three people usually playing. The ability to change up the map was exactly what I was looking for! Nice.

PERSONAL COPY. Adds so much variety in to the game. All the scenarios are wonderfully designed and add so much to the base game plus Underground. Only downside: Set-up takes a while, given you need to find and rotate terrain tiles. A note: If you didn't like vanilla Small World, you probably won't like this. THIS NEEDS TO BE PLAYED MORE.

It's nice to change up the board now and then, but I feel like the instruction manual does a pretty poor job of explaining what all the parts are for. It's almost like lego instructions.

This is a preliminary rating of the components as I have not actually played with Realms yet. The board look good and are sturdy, but I must admit that the original boards are better looking. Still, that is the price to pay for modular boards. Other components are good and the included expansions are numerous and some of them seem really interesting.

The best expansion for Small World yet. The scenarios cover a lot of bases, including a couple that combine above and underground via tunnels, and one that builds the board as you go. The above-ground maps can look a bit busy (remember they have both region types and special symbols for magic/mine/caves, while underground drops the symbols)... but other than that, it's all thumbs up!

Although not as essential as the races and powers expansions, Realms is undoubtedly a good and useful addition to the basic Small World, as it makes for a modular board and thus adds a little randomness and variability to an otherwise pretty predictable game: setup is quite long and boring though, which prevents Realms from being played more often.

For variety only so it's the same rating as the base game. Offering scenarios based on tile driven maps has upsides (providing game to game variety) but also downsides (the notably longer setup). Once you get going though, the game felt the same as any other Small World game - hitting the leader, maxing points, working out when to decline, etc. It just meant the scenario may encourage you to focus more on where you're going on the map and slightly less against the players. Well, it tries to make the decision harder I guess (eg by providing bonus point spaces) - leader hitting is just as important as always. Anyway, I'm not sure I'm sold on the essential-ness of this expansion.

We have played only Go East scenario. It gave a nice flavour to the game. I think that possibility to make your own map is also interesting. There are several suggestions in the rules, how to make a good map. But so far I want to try more scenarios.

Kol kas išbandėme tik Go East scenarijų. Jis suteikė žaidimui visai įdomų atspalvį. Įdomi, manau, ir galimybė susidėti savo žemėlapį. Taisyklės net gi pateikia keletą patarimų, kaip susidėti gerą žemėlapį. Na o kol kas norisi išbandyti daugiau scenarijų.

The Realms expansion brings something to Small World that I love: modular boards! Yes, it is stupid fiddly with putting it together and humming 'n hawing the tile configurations. But if you like puzzles, then you and your friends can set it up in about 5-6 minutes, no problem. With the setup behind us, Realms gives great variety, with many scenarios in the rulebook. There is also a way to create custom maps, but I would be wary to ensure they are balanced. Overall, I highly enjoy this as a different way to play SW. I wouldn't use it every single time (because frankly, I don't want to create my own custom boards and quite a few of the scenarios appear to take away from the simple, fun nature of this game) but I'm glad to have it.
