Lords of Waterdeep - Games Unplugged Ticket


Games Unplugged Ticket

Brain Spice says: When Lords of Waterdeep first emerged in 2012, the odds seemed stacked against it.  Its light "Dungeons & Dragons" theme intimidated anyone who doesn't understand D&D, and simultaneously failed to engage anyone who prefers crunchy role playing games.  The game doesn't do anything particularly new either, competing with many other serviceable (albeit beige themed) "worker placement" style strategy games.  There is only one reason why the world fell in love with Lords of Waterdeep, but it is always the best reason: it feels beautiful to play.  So easy to learn and understand, so intriguingly challenging, and so generously rewarding throughout.  Lords of Waterdeep, thank you for being you.

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.

During the course of play, you may gain points or resources through completing quests, constructing buildings, playing intrigue cards or having other players utilize the buildings you have constructed. At the end of 8 rounds of play, the player who has accrued the most points wins the game.

2–5 Players

60–120 Min Playing Time
