The Alliance Horde is finally making its way to small tabletops in Small World of Warcraft. This game is expected to be compacted into a 2-5 player experience that can be completed in 40-80 minutes while exploring the vast world. Players can pick between 16 different races and powers to help their strategic abilities as they work to take over the islands in the area.
As the announcement reads on the official Warcraft website, “A new day dawns on Azeroth. A day like every one before it, and every one after. A day of merciless struggle for the control of the World of Warcraft. Not only is this Small World territory far too tight for everyone, it also hosts the never-ending conflict between the factions of the Alliance and the Horde. Dawn has broken and the time has come to take your place on the front lines.” The game’s designer, Philippe Keyate, explains that the game is made around the sense of humor that Small World has with the fantasy elements that come with Warcraft.
Included in the game box is:
- 6 Double-Sided Game Boards
- 6 World of Warcraft Races with their respective banners and tokens
- 20 Special Power badges
- 7 Legendary Places
- 5 Artifacts
- 10 Mountain, 15 Murlocs, 9 Wisp Wall, 4 Harmony Token, 12 Bombs, 1 Champion, 10 Forts, 2 Miltary Objectives, 5 Beasts, and 6 Watch Towers

- 110 Victory Coins
- 5 Summary Sheets
