Underground on iOS? Mon, 03 February 2014 23:12
Does anybody know if there are any plans for SW underground on iOS? That would be great. Have the boardgame itself, but can't find anybody who actually wants to play Mad

At this time I haven't heard of any plans to add Small World Underground. But who knows, if SW2 is popular enough, maybe they'll add that version of the game to the digital world! I would play it!! Very Happy

Hi rasmussen and thanks for the reply. Great thing about underground is it adds quite some cool new stuff to the game. So how does one know about their kickstarter plans? Any idea?

Nobody knows about DoW plans until they are ready to share! Very Happy They have not given any hints about doing another kickstarter, or about adding Underground to the digital versions. I think most of their energy is going into improving the current Small World digital game and working on the Designer Edition.

I hope this helps. Cool

I'm not saying SW Underground isn't as good as SW, but I will say it is far less popular. BGG shows around 29,000 users listing SW as owned with total plays around 65,000. It shows around 6,000 users as owning SW:U with total plays of about 4,600. That's fewer users than actually even say they own it.

It's not exactly a compelling case to support spending a significant amount of resources (which are quite limited in a small company). You never know, but personally it seems doubtful.

Hi jepmn, sharp thinking indeed. Hadn't thought of it that way yet. Darn, hope you're not right, 'cause I'd just love the underground version in digital.

Thanks for your thoughts (though I don't like them Smile)

I would like to see it on iOS as well as Steam. I think this version is quite a fantastic addition, and I would play it a ton if it were to be released. Shut up and take my money DoW!!!

I certainly do want to play Small World Underground online and I heartily hope that one day I will be able to do it.
But now my wildest desire, my dream of dreams, my greatest wish for Days of Wonder is a start of another Kickstarter campaign dedicated to launching Memoir '44 on mobile platforms like iOS and Android, as soon as the digital version of original Small World is polished for all platforms.

SW: Realms would be a more worthwhile expansion. More variables to play with.
