Small World for iPad
Days of Wonder has released the new Small World app for iPad.
Game publisher Days of Wonder announced on Friday that it has released a Small World app for Apple's new iPad.

Small World is a board game in which players compete to conquer and control the board using the unique powers of fantasy races. It won a number of international awards, including Games Magazine Traditional Game of the Year and As d'Or Jeux (French Game of the Year) 2010 - Special Jury Prize.

The iPad version is designed for a head-to-head match up between two players. The iPad's multitouch interface allows players to manipulate game components with just the touch of a fingertip. The app is priced at $4.99 from the App Store on iPad or through iTunes. Add-ons will be available for purchase separately.

Mark Kaufmann, Days of Wonder's vice president of sales and marketing, said that the new Small World iPad app would be a boon for both the publisher and retailers.

"The first million Ticket to Ride games that we have sold has proven to us that the more people who played online, the more people purchased the board game," he said. "We are convinced that having people learn Small World on the iPad will mean more sales for board game retailers."
