Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream. Just watch out for those pirates. Yeah, I should probably have warned you about the pirates. That's just what you'll have to worry about in Small World: River World, a new expansion for the game that's going to be available at Spiel Essen.
The set gives you two new double-sided map tiles with which to expand your games. There's also 12 pirate ship markers, 1 caravel marker, 11 event markers, and 1 rules booklet. Defend your land against the pirates while also keeping an eye on what your opponents are doing. Use places like the Shipyard and Temple of the Seer as ways to gain an advantage. These new, watery areas hold a lot of danger, but also a lot of opportunity.
The set will first be available at Spiel Essen, as I mentioned. European retailers will get it shortly thereafter. US distributors will be getting the expansion sometime in November.
