So you own and love the board game right? Then why not get the iPad game? You bought the original board game and love it even tho it has no AI.

Treat this just as if it is a boardgame. It becomes an easy portable game version of the board game you already love, but without all the setup/cleanup time. Play it when you do have 2 people around.

I promise you will not regret buying it. It is my favorite ipad app ATM.

iPhone/iPad game time is me time, when I am going to play with others I've found its better to have all the bits on the table so everyone can spread out and enjoy the action together, rather than crowding around a single device.

Don't seek pure video game here (AI, sounds) because you will be disapointed.
But if you are looking at a quick and easy board game for 2 players, you should get Small World for iPad, it is amazing.
I think that this kind of apps (board games) are offering iPad user a really new and unexpected use of their favourite device.

Now that I think of it, I changed my approach to this. You make a very good point; when you look at it from that perspective, it's true - it's like buying a board game (except it's far cheaper and no parts to worry about). I hope we see the conversion of a lot of board games like this. We are already overloaded with Chess, Checkers, Go, etc..... I'm talking games like Carcassonne (which I did read somewhere that it's in the works). Games like Hero's Quest, Dungeon Twister, the Zombies board game series...even some old Parker Brothers classics like "Careers". Nothing better then an iPad to utilize this genre.

I agree with several of the other posts that this should be viewed as a board game and not a standard video game. For me, I want to see different things with the ipad and this is a great example. Nothing else on the market can emulate a board game like the ipad. The better board games by the likes of days of wonder and rio grande are pretty expensive so this is a cheap alternative that I view as a travel edition that doesnt have pieces to lose. I will probably always prefer the real thing at home, but this is pretty cool on the go. I hope we see more games like this, especially ticket to ride and carcasone.

I do think the itunes description could do a better job explaining what Small World is and isn't.

Now has sound and also if held in upright position rather than laying it flat it will rotate so you can sit next to friend on couch for example. I beat my friend tonight in the five games we played. One of most lethal combos is Trolls with Spirit power first turn.
