You need to be 13 years or older to play SmallWorlds. This is because there are different rules and guidelines that apply to websites that allow players under 13 years of age. Those websites must comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
To operate within these guidelines, SmallWorlds must restrict membership to people above 13 years. Therefore, we take reports of underage players seriously. If we suspect that you are under 13 years old, we may ask for proof of age. If you cannot supply any proof that you are 13 years or older, we will permanently ban your account.
