First Round and entering Board -?? Sat, 02 November 2013 02:36
Hi

I have two questions

1). When first person finishes his turn can second one start conquers from the first ones troops? For me it totally ruins the balancen of game cause it will every time begin like this. We decided to not fight in the first round or set the rule which says that you must start from point which is far at last 2 sqares from enemy. How do you do that or what designers says bout this?

2). At any time (of course I mean at begining of your turn) of game you can leave all terrains and start from edge of map? Cause it also makes no sense for me...

In both cases the game was designed to allow those. You can attack each other right away and you can always withdraw your troops and enter the board from anywhere.

You are always welcome to play a different way, but that is part of the game. Smile

The first player needs to make it hard to take him over, or be ready to be taken over and do the same to his opponent! But part of the fun is figuring out a good strategy, so try out some of your own and figure out what works!

If you want a chance to practice a lot, get the iPad version of Small World or the upcoming Steam version. Then you can try out all sorts of strategies really easily and figure out what works best. Smile

Remember that the first player also has an inherent advantage in the last turn, as he will score all his units first before everyone else gets a chance to go, and thus is not directly affected by the remaining players turns (in the last round, the person going last gets it worst as everyone gets a chance to beat on him, but he cannot directly affect anyone else's score).

I feel that last turn advantage usually more than offsets any first turn disadvantage. Although even on first turn, there is usually so much empty space (or specifically desired terrain types) that there usually isn't a whole lot of immediate conflict.

Also, part of the strategy in Small World is also the diplomacy meta game. You can go out and attack the first player right away, but then he might hold a grudge against you later Smile

Hi Jesse,
I read in your post "the upcoming Steam version".
Does this mean I will be able to play Smallworld online with my pc too?
