Waterdeep, City of Splendours, requires the stewardship of 2 to 5 wise administrators
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.

Waterdeep is a fantastic game!
Waterdeep is a fantastic game! As a devoted fan of medieval, fantasy and RPG genres, I got completely immersed in the setting of the game, and its dynamic and strategic pace make it only better. Beautiful board, cards and pieces contribute to make the experience even more attractive. The only thing that could be improved in future versions is changing the little cubes that represent warriors, rogues, clerics and mages by little miniatures. The best part is that you don't have to know anything of D&D to enjoy it (but certainly D&D fans enjoy it in another level of nostalgia)! It's a 9.5 out of 10 for me.
Lords of Waterdeep is an essential buy, and that's high praise indeed. Why you ask? Well, Waterdeep is a very euro game. This is great in that it involves strategic and tactical thinking with a very low luck factor. Now this usually turns on one set of gamers while turning off another. However, what LoW does is unite these two factions. Aside from the pure euro-nature of the game, LoW is dripping in theme. Set in the Forgotten Realms of D&D the game is also a fantastic entry-level worker placement game for those afraid to dip their toes in euro-goodness. It's fun, it's light and it's quick. What's not to love?
