Time for my next game review. Smallworld Underground is definitely one of my personal favorites. The game is fast, has enough depth to not to be boring, but is easy enough to be relaxing. Oh, and it has the "rotflmao" effect built in.
You have a map with different territories. You get points by occupying these territories, which auto-leads to conflict with other players. Remember it is a small world. Smallworld Underground also has some new stuff in it, like unique locations and artifacts. The "races" you can pick to play with are just hilarious. Oh, yeah, you start the game by picking a race that has a previously randomly assigned bonus ability. Later on you can send your race into decline to pick a new one. The declined race will still generate you points, but you can't play with them anymore. In the case you send your second race into decline you will loose the first one, but of course get a new active race as well.
That's it basically. An easy to learn and play game that is very amusing. A good game to introduce your non-geek friends to. Give it a try, you won't regret it!
