Lords of Waterdeep is a board game set in the expansive Forgotten Realms setting for Dungeons & Dragons. And that is all you need to know about the pretty art, because it could be dressed in any theme and be a great game. Its a wonderfully crafted game that runs in the same method as Agricola: you score points for what YOU do for yourself, not what you do to others. It plays very well with 2 players and 3 players and 4 players and 5 players, but each one of those options plays very differently!
A wonderful option for people who need a game for 2, a game to play with people who won't touch D&D, and a game with the flavor of D&D without the colossal time commitment!
