From the Manufacturer

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 is based in the Dungeons and Dragons world. More specifically, in the Forgotten Realms campaign setting. Unlike the other board games that have been released by Wizards of the Coast over the past few years that are also set in the D&D world (eg, Wrath of Ashardalon and Conquest of Norrath), this game is pure euro. For all intents and purposes, it is a worker-placement game with a pick-up and deliver mechanic (no, really, it's funner than that might sound!).

The idea behind the game is the following: Each player takes on the role of a lord of Waterdeep - one of several actors who essentially controls the politics and economy of the City of Splendor (as Waterdeep is known). To increase their influence, they hire adventurers to complete quests on their behalf. For example, you might hire a few rogues to infiltrate one of the many guilds composing Waterdeep's market economy. The more quests you complete, the better you do in the game - the player who completes the most (and most valuable) quests, wins.

Game play

The game play blends the theme with the mechanics almost seamlessly. The game plays over eight rounds, and each round players take turns assigning their agents to different buildings. Each building procures the player something, but most commonly a collection of adventurers. Adventurers come in four flavors: clerics, rogues, fighters, and wizards (in other words, classic D&D archetypes). After assigning agents to a building and collecting its benefits, a player can complete one quest per turn. To complete a quest, you must return a certain type and amount of adventurers to the general stock. In return, you earn victory points - and sometimes gold and more adventurers, or even advantages that last throughout the duration of the game.

For those who've played Agricola and Caylus, this game uses similar concepts to those two games. Your meeples (people) collect resources or money. I call them resources or cubes but these are fighters, rogues and so on, in the game's terminology. You use these to gain special powers or victory points or build buildings. Meeples can visit any building to get more resources or money than they normally would. However, the owner of the building i.e. the original builder gets rent or resources when that happens. Players can use intrigue cards for one time special effects. Everyone also gets a special secret end of game bonus card such as "Each building you control gives you 6 points at the end of the game". With a combination of these different actions, you aim to gain more victory points than anyone else.

The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is that it didn't really leaving craving for more like "Through the Ages" did. The reason may be that it is not too original and is so similar to other games out there. That said, the game is interactive, gives everyone an equal chance of winning and anyone can come back from behind and win the game. I find a game that always keeps players in with a chance of winning to be exciting. There are many different strategies to pursue. Overall, fun game.

I'm a D&D gamer from quite a ways back, and I had my doubts about this game. I checked out the new 4th edition tabletop game when it first came out, and over a brief period of time it fell out of favor with me. D&D 4e can be a fun game, but it lost something for me in all the focus on tactical combat. The more recent D&D board game entries from Wizards of the Coast seemed like they took tabletop D&D and turned it into a simple board game.

The 4e connection to Lords of Waterdeep is what worried me. As it turns out, there is no tabletop D&D to be found in this game. Instead, it takes the city of Waterdeep as the setting, and allows you to be a secret ruler sending out adventurers on quests to collect victory points.

As a tabletop D&D gamer, I instantly found an attraction to this game soon after learning how to play. The thought of being the person in charge of gathering adventurers and sending them out to do my bidding was very appealing to me; finally I would get a sense of how it feels to be on the other side of the adventure. Sure, I've run games as the Dungeon Master before, but the Lords of Waterdeep are essentially non-player characters; extras in the background that the players don't get to interact with very often. To make these powerful extras take centerstage as playable characters was an exciting prospect to me.

As a board game collector, I was extremely impressed with the packaging. After you have punched out all the cardboard pieces and followed the guide provided in the instructions, everything is sorted and organized to facilitate fast setup. Every group of tokens, meeples, cards, and tiles is separated into their own tightly constructed compartment.

Everyone seems to love Lords of Waterdeep as a lighter worker placement game. But why? Lets take a look.

COMPONENTS
The board is completely functional. Your player markers are completely functional. The cards are OK. Some of the text on them is a bit small and difficult for people not right next to them to read. Money is cardboard chits and are a bit weird, but once you get used to which shape/size is what value, it's good enough. Everything else? Cubes. Warriors? Cubes. Wizards? Cubes.

GAMEPLAY
You take turns placing your workers which let you take quests or resources to complete those quests and/or draw/play cards, and then if you can/want to, you then spend resources to complete one of your quests. Completing a quest gives you points and many times, more resources to spend later. Additionally, you can take an action to "buy" a new action space to be put on the board (which you can take or, if anyone else takes it, you get a kickback for owning it).

Additionally, there are some hidden bonuses for completing certain types of quests (each player has different hidden goals). What it really ends up meaning is, if you're lucky and can get goals which don't have a lot of competition (so others aren't taking your quests) and are lucky enough for your type of quests to show up as being available, you get a few extra points. It's generally not game-altering.

All in all, the gameplay is very solid. My only problem with the gameplay is the cards. Far too many of them are very "take that" play against one other player. So if you're in the lead, get ready to get "blue shelled" quite a bit. As a lighter game, that's not the worst thing in the world.
