Hey guys,

I'm thinking about buying one of the Small World editions, but I hear some people complaining about the relics in Underground.

I have no problem with house-ruling games, so if I don't like them, can't I just leave them out, or does the game stop to work without them?

Thanks for any answers.

Overtext is really cool. The best 100 GG I've ever spent.

Well. I'm actually bored with overtext. Why did I give all that GG away?

No. Just buy regular Small World.

What complaints have you heard? I like them because the relics and places of power give extra powers or points to the players that get them, and it also gives a reason for other players to fight each other over them as opposed to staying as separated as possible.

And if you decide you don't like them, then removing them will make the game just like Small World.

Ok, so when I take the relics out, I can just play "vanilla Small world" without any problems?

Kinda confused about the two different answers now

Yeah, without the relics and places of power, it is pretty much vanilla Small World. The monsters on the board will act just like the tribesmen. The main difference will be the river, which acts a little differently then the regular Small World (although it sounds like the new River World expansion will add rivers to Small World soon).

Days of Wonder's website has all the rulebooks available if you want to check them out.
