You are one of the Lords of Waterdeep. Do you have what it takes to outplay your counterparts?

Lords of Waterdeep is a competitive worker placement game for 2-5 players.  Set in the Dungeons & Dragons campaign world of the Forgotten Realms, each players controls one of the titular Lords and their agents, and will vie for control of the city of Waterdeep.  Place your agents at different locations around the board to gain money and adventurers who will help you complete Quests, and play Intrigue cards to advance your ambitions and stymie your opponents.  Buy buildings around the city to open up new options and make the other Lords pay to use them.  Earn the most points by the final round to be declared the ultimate Lord of Waterdeep!

Lords of Waterdeep is easy to learn and difficult to master.

This is an entry-level game in the worker-placement genre of Euro games (like Caylus and Stone Age). Its theme will appeal to fantasy fans and its gameplay is strategic but fast. It has recently been complemented by the Scoundrels of Skullport expansion.
