Lords of Waterdeep Board Game
From the Publisher...
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!
Lords of Waterdeep is 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.
Lords of Waterdeep includes the following components:
•5 card stock player mats
•121 Intrigue, Quest, and Role cards
•130 wooden cubes, pawns, and score pieces
•Wooden player markers
•Card stock tiles and tokens representing buildings, gold coins, and victory points

|I knew the components and tray were amazing, but now that I've played it, this game delivers. Lots of fun, lots of choices, and you really don't know who is winning until the very end. The game really picks up in the later rounds, offering tension and suspense. It's just an all-around great game.
|Awesome game. Was nervous because of the D&D on the box, but it's just an excellently designed worker placement game.
