Small World 2 has a misleading name. Technically it isn't a sequel to the venerable Small World, but an update that adds asynchronous multiplayer and allows more people to play it
This expansion sees you controlling a succession of fantasy civilisations squabbling for space on a cramped map. Each turn involves dragging counters around the landscape to conquer regions.
Most regions need two, but if there are enemy counters there you have to put down an additional number equal to theirs to take the space. You get a point for each region you own.
Small World 2 is a quality update to a classic iPad boardgame. Minor AI and auto-match niggles don't detract from the fun of asynchronous play with friends
