Announcing Necromancer Island - a Free Small World scenario Mon, 27 September 2010 15:47
Welcome to Necromancer Island, a free Small World expansion where one player takes on the role of the dreaded Necromancer who inhabits an island in the center of Small World's central Lake region.The Necromancer captures the souls of all Race tokens lost to conquests, using them to spawn Ghosts who invade surrounding regions. His Powers grow as his reach across the land increases. To win, the Necromancer must bring all of his Ghosts into play before the game's end. The remaining players must not only contain him, but also continue to conquer lands and earn victory coins in an effort to defeat each other and claim victory over Small World. This small scenario includes: the Necromancer Island and Well of Souls game pieces; 14 Ghost tokens; and rules in English, French and German. It plays with up to 6 players.

Ok ... so I own every SmallWorld product (except the Ipad version - as I don't have an Ipad)....

So how do I get a copy of Necromancer Island?

Simply visit your local game store in November to pick up a copy (or if you live too far from a game store, order any Small World item on our web store and Necromancer Island will get added in for free, once it comes in stock).

All pre-orders of Be Not Afraid... from the DOW webstore will automatically get Necromancer Island added to them.
Very Happy

What a wonderful gift to players of this amazing game!! Thanks DoW for all the hard work and for so many free gifts. It's amazing that you're able to print and distribute such a cool sounding expansion for free!! Smile What an amazing company.

As a note to all players...when they say this expansion is available until it runs out, that means it probably won't be reprinted. They did some similar gifts to players of Memoir '44 and now players are wondering why they can't get that gift...so if you want this expansion, get it while it's available!! Cool

Thanks again, Days of Wonder crew!! Very Happy

My advice would be to find a friend who doesn't want it (might be hard to do) or look for it on e-bay. Being a free gift does not mean that DoW is going to go out of their way to give a copy to every person who plays the game...you still have to follow their avenues of distribution! Cool

Not that I have heard.

However, you can find the pdf on the DOW site, and the set only requires about a dozen tokens or so. So easy enough to fake it for yourself.

In any case, the rules didn't seem that well balanced so my group never breaks it out anyways.
