Welcome to the first of a new video review series I am trying out. In these reviews I will show the iOS version along side its board game counterpart.
It will answer questions like:
How many pieces will Bradley drop this review?
Where is that cheesy music from?
How many rules mistakes or omissions can be made in a single review?
Tune in for these answers and more...

Small World is the first subject of this review series. I hope you enjoy it.

-Brad




The Stats:
Compatibility: iPad.
Current Price: $6.99
Developer/Publisher: Days of Wonder
Version: 1.1.1
Size: 89.8 MB
Multiplayer: Pass and Play on one device.
AI: Yes.
Itunes link:http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/small-world-for-ipad/id364165...

Conclusion:
Small World is a beautiful game in either version. The app has begun to show its age and lacks many of the features we have come to expect from "modern" iOS board games. However, it is still a quality experience that continues to be enjoyable. Small World really holds a place of honor as the app that proved not just to our hobby but also to the world that board games can work on iOS.
