This expansion adds more strategy to the game, it is a very nice addition.
Most of people don't realize the importance this extension and the rich impact it brings to the whole game

This small expansion adds a bit of strategy to combat. I'm glad I own it but you don't need it to enjoy Small World.

Nice littel addition to SW. Personally I very seldom buy the leader as I don't think it's worth the risk. If other players buy their leader I like to capture them.

Adds a new subtle layer of strategy on player's turns. If I spend the point for the extra person, will it make a difference and can I protect him? Rated same as base game (8) because I doubt I'll play without it.

Days of Wonder mailed it to me; I assume because I submitted to the contest. Having tried out the leaders, I think they make the game just a little better. Gives you a way to try to get one more region out of a race.

Never played yet, but gets the Small World rating. Adding options for the players looks great - I guess it does take a good board position for a leader to make sense, and it can go wrong as often as it can work, which is neat. More strategy for the game. Kinda the opposite of Tales & Legends, which mostly adds more randomness.

(Apr. 2011): It's hard to to know when to pick a leader, but I tried it a couple of times in my last game and I won, so I guess they aren't so bad!
UPDATE (Aug. 2011): I don't bring it out when teaching, but whenever all the players have played before, there's no reason not to include it. I tend to buy a couple of leaders per game, and it seems to work out for me.

Sometimes it's useful to take the extra token, sometimes it's not worth the VP. Most often you really wish you had taken the leader during the second turn conquest. ;-) This is a simple expansion that shows its "promotional" origins, but is still worth using for the extra option it opens up.

Nice small addition to the game. Bascially you are buying an extra chit for 1 pt. If you lose the piece you have to ransom it back for 1 pt. or the captor gets 2 pts. at the end of the game.

The cost/benefit ratio works. It isn't too powerful but can be helpful is need the extra chits.

We have them available for every game but not everyone uses them. This is not a "must have" expansion nor does it modify the basic game.

Leader tokens that act much like regular tokens that you can buy for one VP, but then watch him become a target which will end up costing you one way or another. Play with them once, if you must, and then forget them.

"Free" expansion that was available through BGG. Also includes the extra expansion leaders from Be Not Afraid...

The rules are fairly straightforward; pay an extra coin when picking a race, and it acts like an extra token. Just don't let it get captured or you'll give points to other players. The high-numbered races really don't need to use them, but they can be a big help to the smaller ones, especially Dwarves and White Ladies.


Tried it a couple times and it worked fairly well.

Works very well and adds another depth to player interaction. I wouldn't like to see too many more expansions along these lines though; one is enough.

A bit disappointing that the art isn't different to the original tiles, but I suppose you can't have everything.

ok addition, it can be nice to have another token in some cases. Doesn't really change the game that much. We will probably add this in every now and then.. plays under base game.

I've been on this site for 10 years now, and I'm far from sick of games, but I think I am, to some degree, sick of learning too many new games. I'm also tired of playing 4+ hr multiplayer games, but I'll still happily play really long games 2 player.

Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colours. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving. Pratchett
