During this maintenance we’ll move all our infrastructure to a new provider, in order to enhance the quality of our services and allow for more growth in the future.
Unfortunately this means we will have to completely shut-down our digital services during the operation. We estimate that the migration process will take our IT team two full hours.
During this 2 hours time span it will not be possible to play online on most of our games (including but not limited to Ticket to Ride, Smallworld 2, Splendor, Carcassonne, Potion Explosion, Mysterium, Memoir’ 44 etc.). It will normally be possible to play most of those games in solo or offline mode.
It will also not be possible to log-in with an Asmodee.net account in any of those games either, nor browse rankings or leaderboards. Access to our various websites will also be impossible (including but not limited to the Days of Wonder website, Asmodee.net Account website, etc) or severely degraded (Fantasy Flight Games Community, Asmodee Digital Forums, etc).
We will update as best as we can the Asmodee Status Page with any information about the progress and resolution of this maintenance operation.
Our technical support team will also be on the bridge to answer any questions regarding the maintenance operation and/or any issues after the maintenance procedure.
We appreciate your understanding and patience as we continue to make Asmodee Digital and Days of Wonder games even better!

It was a lovely spring morning; Giants were getting new tattoos and the rest of the Small World inhabitants were preparing for another day of conquest. An eerie silence settled on the lands as a huge shadow glided over forest and mountain. Had the Wizards accidentally given their flocks of sheep flight again ?
All eyes turned to the horizon as an archipelago of Sky Islands floated over Small World… and realization dawned at the same time as the sun. New lands meant new riches! Within a few hours, the most enterprising races were swarming up a Giant Magical Beanstalk and a Stairway to Heaven on their way to wealth. The battle for the Sky Islands had just begun…
Find out Small World – Sky Islands a new expansion for the award-winning fantasy board game Small World, designed by Philippe Keyaerts and T. Alex Davis.
In Small World – Sky Islands, the newest expansion for Small World, new lands are floating closer, but the world remains too small—and that’s not going away with the new board featuring the floating Sky Islands. Each island completely conquered by a single Race will earn additional coins for that race, but accessing the Sky Islands is not easy. To help the players in their conquests, this expansion also features an assortment of new and zany races and special powers, such as the Scavengers, created by Sam Iam Lasseter, or the impressive Storm Giants, created by T. Alex Davis. To sort them all, a storage tray is included in this expansion.
Small World – Sky Islands is an expansion for 3 to 6 players. It includes a double-sided board, 7 Fantasy Race banners, 94 Matching Race tokens, 4 Lost Tribe tokens, 5 Zeppelin/Burning Region tokens, 5 Trade Pact tokens, 3 transformed Drakon tokens, 2 Lightning Bolt tokens, 2 Cannon tokens, 2 Access point to Sky Islands tokens, 1 “END” token, 1 Summary Sheet, a rules booklet, and a storage tray. This expansion is scheduled to be available at Essen and shortly after in Europe, followed by a early December release in North America, at a suggested retail price of €28-$30

Dive into thriving French culture during impressionism and the Industrial Revolution; street cafes, “Starry Night”, Paris Boulevards, and Notre-Dame. The French railroad system is a blank canvas just waiting for your masterful strokes. However, before you can start claiming routes, you’ll need to lay the track! Watch for your opponents, though, because they might claim the route you just spent so much time building…
Find out Ticket to Ride Map Collection Volume 6 – France and Old West a new expansion in our well-known Ticket to Ride series.
This expansion will challenge the players’ existing habits, as this time, before claiming a route, you will need to build the tracks and choose their colors. This simple variation adds a new twist to Ticket to Ride and makes the France map completely unique. The double-sided board also features a map of Old West, where up to six players can develop their railway networks starting from their Home Cities. Claiming routes along the way will make players face a dilemma: every time a player takes a route which leads to a city controlled by an opponent, that opponent scores the points.
Ticket to Ride – France includes a oversized, double-sided map. The French map is designed for 2-5 players and includes 58 Destination Tickets cards, 2 Bonus cards, and 64 Track Pieces. The Old West map is designed for 2-6 players and includes 50 Destination Tickets cards, 2 Bonus Cards, 40 White Train Cars, 18 City Markers, and 1 Alvin the Alien Marker. Both of these maps require the trains and the train car cards from either Ticket to Ride® or Ticket to Ride® Europe. This expansion is scheduled to be available at Essen and in Europe late October followed by a early November release in the USA, at a suggested retail price of €40-$44.99.
