Waterdeep, the City of Splendors - the most resplendent jewel in the Forgotten Realms, and a den of political intrigue and shady back-alley dealings. In this game, the players are powerful lords vying for control of this great city. Its treasures and resources are ripe for the taking, and that which cannot be gained through trickery and negotiation must be taken by force!

In Lords of Waterdeep, a strategy board game for 2-5 players, you take on the role of one of the masked Lords of Waterdeep, secret rulers of the city. Through your agents, you recruit adventurers to go on quests on your behalf, earning rewards and increasing your influence over the city. Expand the city by purchasing new buildings that open up new actions on the board, and hinder  or help the other lords by playing Intrigue cards to enact your carefully laid plans.

Customer Reviews

A Great Euro game in DnD clothing. Review by Tom
Rating
A great worker placement game, set around recruiting adventurers, completing quests and scoring points for plotting and scheming in the DnD city of Waterdeep.

Each player has a hidden identity which is revealed at the end of the game, which will give bonus points depending on the objectives completed (mainly completing particular quest types). This means that one can never be quite sure who is in the lead.

Lords of Waterdeep is very well polished, with excellent pacing. It never outstays its welcome and is an excellent use of game-time.

It has a low learning curve and is accessible to non-gamers, but with enough depth and variety to keep experienced gamers interested.

Combine this with plenty of interaction between players, and a pretty theme and we have a game that is a real real winner. (Posted on 29/05/15)
Scheming from the Shadows Review by Gobo
Rating
As a Lord of Waterdeep, you secretly recruit various types of characters to complete quests and earn points. This is a high quality production, and a real pleasure to view on the table.
It is a simple worker placement, and invovles a low level of player interaction.
Unless you really take the time to read the card text and really get into the spirit of the game, it can easily feel like a cube-pushing recipe exercise, getting the right colours to fulfil your quests, but with the right mood you can really get a great experience from this game.

Games Day Staple Review by Adin
Rating
This is a games day staple for me and my friends including the expansion.

The limited number of rounds and limited resources available each round make planning and strategy paramount to be able to win at this. Hidden goals for each player add to the game play. Quests are great and can provide ongoing bonuses to aid in reaching your goals. Great replay ability. (Posted on 28/05/15)
